Ashley Cole should've won British/English player of the year last year.

I think that with his expectations he will flop.

Dortmund really needed to win. Gotze is gone. Lewa is as good as gone. It wouldn't be a shock to see Hummels go to Barca. Dortmund might receive mad offers for Reus and/or Gundogan.

Also, can't wait to see Daniel Carvajal back at Real Madrid. Voted best RB in the bundesliga

bye to Arbeola

guess I was right about Modric. they are better without him an he doesn't have enough quality to play with the big boys. Spuds were smart to take the money.

Come on man I know he's not flashy and he's a defensive rightback (but the guy did start for Spain @ the Euros and was Real's starting RB this season and last) but you got to get his name right - ARBELOA. Maybe he won't start anymore but he's a useful squad player who can be Carvajal's backup and can even play LB once in a while when needed.

There are so many mixed opinions on Luka. I never wanted him @ Real just like how I never wanted Coentrao either. He has had some very good games this year though and he's going to stay unless a team puts in a decent offer.

luka is one insanely talented midfielder. one of the best in the world. he was played out of position a lot when he did get to play, and never really got a sustained run of games, until the end, which inevitably led to him doing well. with an aging alonso, madrid would be stupid to sell luka

sorry. autocorrect spelt it that way

Just because he started doesn't means he's great. Hugo Mallo, Carvajal, Azpilicueta, Montoya... there are options. He just starts because he's older and there weren't many quality RB's before. Pepe starts for Portugal but I don't like him. If those City rumours are true Real should sell him.

and it looks like Neymar to Barca is official and Aguero won't go to Real.

Ah ok. It doesn't mean he's great but he's a solid defensive rb. Actuallyif you put him 2gether with dani alves you'd have a rb who offers something on both ends instead of only on one lol. + Actually there was a lot of talk last summer b4 euros that some were thinking Ramos would play rb with Javi Martinez @ cb. @ Real some were wondering that Coentrao was bought to be used as a) or lass or altintop would play rb too. It's highly unlikely Hugo Mallo gets in2 the World Cup squad. Montoya will only b on the squad if Dani Alves leaves Barca. Carvajal or Azpilicueta will start next summer in Brazil.

Very glad Real are not getting Neymar. I'm kind of unhappy that Aguero will stay @ City cuz now Cavani to Real has a higher chance of happening unfortunately. I kind of think the Falcao to Monaco and then to Real in the winter rumour will happen.

I wouldn't mind if Pepe stayed as he'd be a first choice backup in case.Varane, Ramos or Khedira go down. However I doubt he'd want to be @ Real in that role. Also, is Casemiro to Real permanent? I've heard it is but I've also heard it isn't.Heard it'll be 6 million euros 2 make the deal permanent.

Word on the street is Cavani's dad said he'll go to Real. Higuain to Juve.

Finally Champions of Europe!!! So much disappointment last year, it was about damn time.

Bayern really needed that win too though. They had lost the past two finals in three years. Robben lost in the WC Final to Spain. Ribery lost in the WC Final to Italy. Schweinsteiger and Lahm have been second best on so many occasions they really needed that win or it would be really detrimental to German football as a whole. Dortmund on the other hand were too young to really know what they've gotten themselves into.

With the offers for Reus and Gundogan, I doubt they'll even consider any. They've just picked up Papastathopoulos from Werder who will replace Santana as a sub, and maybe Subotic or Hummels if one departs. They're looking at Benteke and Lewandowski isn't gone yet. Bayern's set for dominance, but I don't foresee dortmund fading away just yet.

It is good Bayern finally got it cuz if not it would've been bad. However, it will be really hard for Dortmund to get as far as they did again especially without their crown jewel - Gotze. Lewa isn't gone yet but another team will offer him mad wages + chances to win, and his contract is expiring, he's as good as gone. I think Hummels leaving is more likely than Gundogan or Reus leaving.

Lewandowski is going to Bayern. Its been known for a month now and will be official soon. would be funny to see Gomez on Dortmund.
