It definitely wasn't the case of simply Terry and Lampard fucking him over; he contributed significantly to his own downfall there.

Aye. As unfortunate as it turned out, I think the reaction by the players to AVB's practices were pretty natural. I'd be worried if players did not get upset after being shafted out in the manner AVB did. That away game in Naples was a clear example of this.

I do like the man however, so I hope he does well, as long as we do better.

Not too convinced about Debuchy. Attacking wise he looked good, but seemed a bit shaky defensively. Although he did seem to spend most of his time in the opposition half.

Gladbach sign Twente's Luuk de Jong on a four-year deal, according to "Express". Reportedly about €11m fee.

Believe it or not! I just don't post about it because nobody cares :(... we're out of the CONCACHAMPIONS anyway, so is pure local league this season for us. It's kind of funny since the colors of the team are the sames of certain bayern rivals:

He's better than Simpson at least.

edit: Elsk what's your source? I thought FC Twente denied that.

edit 2: I think "Express" aren't updated but if true, then shit. lol

There was hope before we signed Mario Mandžukić, but not anymore. We actually should promote or sign a new winger for back-up... Robben, Ribéry, Shaqiri (Mueller) are not that much options.

I don't really rate him, I think your strikers right now are better than him... He could work well in Gladbach because -somehow- Favre makes any player work under his system. Even Hanke, their shitty striker, had a good season thanks to that system.

I'm really impressed they managed to buy Álvaro Domínguez (Atlético Madrid) as a replacement for Dante. I think Álvaro was actually the freaking captain of Atlético Madrid(!)... I think Favre is very serious about building a strong project.

I rate Ba and Cisse highly but... they're African. So we're pretty much boned when they leave for ACON in January.

We fucking lost to Brighton in the FA Cup when Ba left for ACON :lol

I'm actually hoping he gets the RB spot in the reserves. We need to start building a Lahm replacement for the future.

Btw, for some reason the board gave Patrick Weihrauch (striker, 18 years old!) a professional contract for 2 years and added him to the first team roster. He was just recently promoted to the U19 team, people are saying he's VERY talented

It would be incredibly odd for it to be a done deal if Newcastle reps are in Holland (probably as we speak) to talk to the club about De Jong primarily. They wouldn't be talking about him if he's already signed for another club.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's verbally agreed to join Borussia but Twente are holding out to see if Newcastle offer more money and maybe even more money to De Jong himself.

We'll see I guess.

Not much news on De Jong in the Dutch press. They're only saying Newcastle is a serious option. And I read somewhere that Newcastle is bringing 12,5 million euros. Also, Bayern München may be interested in him.

We were(!), but we already signed two strikers so we're out of the market unless we manage to sign Javi Martínez.

12,5 million euros is a little less than 10 million pounds, sounds about right.

One day I'm going to book a plane to Tokyo and just go a bit mental.

Won't be any time soon though, my bank account was just bumraped for house rent and I literally can't even draw out at a cash machine. My Nan just bobbed round and snuck us a sly Ł20 to cheer me up. Top lady. Hopefully I get the deposit back from my old house in days and I can do something financially dependant, like go to the cinema, or go go-karting, or catch a train.
