    Way to step into it III! LMAO!! This place needed a Chelsea supporter. Good on you!

    Still, you can catch all their games on Sirius. One channel covers all of Chelsea's matches. Radio 606 I believe.

    Chelsea is owned by a Russian mafia boss. Everyone hates Chelsea. I would suggest Fulham, Newcastle, Liverpool, or Tottenham.
    see, i'd go with probably Aston Villa or Everton (or, obviously, Arsenal), as they are both teams on the verge of maybe making a leap up to the next level who, unlike sp*rs, actually have a chance of succeeding...

    If you mean you mean spending a lot of money and are successful at the same time; I'd say Real Madrid in Spain and Bayern Munich in Germany.

    If you mean just spends a lot of money Chel$ki and Inter.

    Donovan gets plenty of attention on the Galaxy in MLS, but never could cut it after several stints in Europe. Guess I never understood the fascination or the hype.
    I have to say. It's amazing what a difference a year makes. Not a criticism of the poster, since this was the prevailing opinion of Donovan last May. But, he had a great Confed Cup, and was fantastic during his time with Everton, especially against the best competition (even if he did miss an easy goal that cost them a point).

    And the only question for him now is if the Galaxy will sell him for reasonable price. Because most Premier League teams would gladly have him on the wing (especially Everton)

    Can't help but pull for the under-dog...esp when bottoming out after the failed penalty kick to close out last MLS season. Good to see him bounce back and play well for a decent team in a world class league.

    If memory serves, he mainly got the opportunity at Everton due to a mass of injuries. Give him credit that he took advantage of it, but I hope wherever he decides to go that it's to play and not to sub.

    You should have chosen Inter Milan! I'm studying abroad in Milan now, so to get myself ready I started seriously following soccer about a year ago. AC Milan seemed like the most popular Italian team, but I was a fan of Samuel Eto'o already from the little bit of soccer I watched beforehand, plus I didn't like the fact that everyone seemed to overrate David Beckham.

    I guess I got lucky, but Inter's already won Coppa Italia, one win away from the Serie A championship and, most importantly, one win away from the Champions League trophy. Hell of a time to be in Milan - Forza Inter!
