If Chelsea doesn't make top 4, I'm going to be shocked. I think Chelsea, City, Arsenal, and United [assuming they sign some defenders] will claim top 4. Liverpool is signing to build depth for champs league but they aren't signing world class players to fill the void left from Suarez. United not having any European competitions will hopefully work in their favor in terms of having players fit and rested to win the title this season. Granted, I must say Porto and Arsenal are making top notch signings. Real Madrid and PSG not giving a f about FFP. haha

[Quote]I read something about this awhile back. The only character that actually is a smoker in real life is Lip and as the show progressed, they had the other cast members stop smoking because people would notice the "fake smokers" but as far as gradually shying away from smoking entirely, those scenes don't tie in with what's going on. On a side note, the scenes with Kevin these past few episodes were hilarious especially the one scene where he finds out he's having triplets and is shouting that he has a magical dick.

They had a sneak peak for the new season last week. They had the whole first episode up on Youtube since last week. Definitely excited for the new season though.

[Quote]Yea, as a United fan, I cannot see United being relatively close to Arsenal come 2014. However, needs more than one season(2+)  to be completed before we consider sacking the manager. He's making questionable lineup adjustments that obviously aren't working. Poor Kagawa isn't playing as effectively as he was with Dortmund... Ramsey is having a spectacular year, who would have thought? Did you see that Suarez goal? smokeyface

[Quote]best bet is to go to a CC. That way you can work plus find out what you want to do and maintain a solid GPA since CC is pretty easy. As far as Cal States go, I know when I applied they had a GPA SAT/ACT that you had to meet. For example if you had a 2.5 GPA, you would need X amount on you SAT to be accepted. Not sure what it is though. However if you had over 3.0 or 3.5 then they didn't even look at you SAT scores.

[Quote]Prolly best bet is World Soccer Shop or Eurosport. Local shop also, ProSoccer (to me at least). It's going to be hard to  find a Monaco jersey. Side note, The Special One has returned to Stamford Bridge for another 4 years.

What a great champs league final! Munchen for the win! Looking forward to the transfer window. Monaco already got Rodriguez and Moutinho and now looks like Falcao? DAMN. And even more to come too, probably. Also, Neymar to Barcelona finally and Gotze and all signs point to Lewandowski to switch over to Munchen. Can't wait to see what's going to happen, especially with the Prem.

[Quote]seriously got lucky at the end like that. Was definitely a great game. Now, we got a rematch for the SuperCup. Lots of crazy stuff rumored with Dortmund, losing Lewandowski and Gotze to Munchen and possibly Hummels too.

[Quote]Yes, they are owned by a Russian billionaire.  Sad to see SAF go but excited to see Moyes. Got big shoes to fill. There goes Wigan down after winning the FA cup.  Hopefully Rooney doesn't leave, but looks that way. Not surprised to see Chelsea win the Europa, hopefully Bayern win so they can get a rematch in the Supercup.  Hopefully the 3rd, 4th race pans out in a way that Chelsea and Arsenal have to play a playoff game. Would be very entertaining.  Also, Beckham and Scholes retiring this season too.

[Quote]Are you kidding me? A club like Real Madrid are expected to win Champions league and finish first in the league. Anything less than that is considered a shortcoming. Real Madrid are one of, if not the best clubs in the world in terms of revenue and talent. So, Murinho is expected to win. So criticism of Mourinho during this season especially with alleged clashing with players like Casillas and Ramos warrants speculation of a departure from the Bernebeau. Plus, he seems to recently be acting lackadaisical in terms of performance. With Benitez definitely on the way out, Mourinho  would be an obvious choice for replacement. Granted, the term for Chelsea manager's is rather short.

[Quote] wait, why does Ahmed even care? He plays for Sunderland. I suppose now he's guaranteed to play in the Premier League regardless. Sucks for Watford though.

[Quote]did they prolong the second half? Wasn't it initially supposed to come back mid July?

Who's looking forward to the Sonnen v. Jones fight this weekend? seems like a semi-decent main card from the looks of it.

Side note, semi-finals tomorrow. Sincerely don't want to see an El Classico final. C'mon BAYERN!
