You know you have a problem when…

July 10, 2010

you are quite likely to watch the 3rd place match. Mainly because I like underdogs and because I like Uruguay’s strikers.

I would imagine that Luis Suarez’s value on the transfer market has gone up significantly. He has a wonderful strike rate, he’s talented, and he’s still young. Plus he makes smart plays like saving the ball on the goal line with his hand. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ajax get offers in the 20 to 30 million Euro range.

Interestingly, 2010 will be the first year to not feature Brazil, Argentina, Germany, or Italy in the final. Of course, that just means that you now have to add Holland to that list…or Spain, but since this is Holland’s 3rd final and Spain’s first…


Bryan Ruiz: potential big transfer market signing?

April 13, 2010

Manchester United nabbed Chivas striker Javier Hernandez from Mexico for £6 million.

I notice that Costa Rican Bryan Ruiz has scored 23 goals in 30 games for Twente in the Dutch Eredivisie to lead them to the top of the table.

He’s 24 right now.  The free is rumored to be in the 15 million euro range, with Sevilla, Villareal, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Everton, and Tottenham all talked of being in the mix.
