One and Only 2013-2014 Football (soccer) thread: All Leagues Edition

Starting off with David Villa to Atletico for an embarrassingly low fee of a little over 5 million euros.

I thought he would leave Spain.

Word was that he wanted to stay in Spain. Getting CL football was an added bonus.

Most fans are rather upset at the fee, but there is some talk that it might be part of a quid pro quo, namely right of first refusal on Oliver.

Big news in this area that Diego Forlan could be joining Toronto FC. They sure could use him.

8.5m GBP - a record for a Yank.

@Musker_LFC: Suso is set to join Almeria, on loan. (Sky Sports).
Almeria won promotion back to La Liga last month. I hope he can receive regular playing time.

Thanks. It sure is nice to be the only Arsenal fan on the boards, and to see the Gunners return to their traditional yellow/blue away kit colors. Oops, I meant colours.

Haven't heard definitively if their home kits will remain the same as last year or if Nike has something else up their sleeve.

Aside from the sponsor, these are wonderful.

Iraq couldn't quite pull it off today in the under 20 WC, giving up the tying goal very close to the end of regulation and ultimately losing 6-7 on PKs. Was really hoping they would pull it out.

Barca B winger Gerard Deulofeo to Everton on a season long loan.

A great pickup for Martinez. I think Deulo could easily score 15+ goals this year.

Victor Wanyama completed his 12.5m GBP move from Celtic to Southampton.



Nice pick up by the Saints.

If that's to scale I hope they can figure out how to prevent opponents from kicking the ball over the wall o' Germans. Otherwise Neuer will be looking at defending agaisnt a lot of 4-on-none attacks.

No worries, Pep is in charge. 8 midfielders with two wingers is the new thing.

Illarramendi to Madrid. Disappointing. First Isco and now Xabi's replacement.

Roma defender Marquinhos looks to be on the move, possibly to stacked PSG. Hopefully that means Thiago Silva will be on the move to Barca. If not, and Marquinhos goes there, they are going to be incredibly dangerous in Europe.

I want Alonso to go back to Liverpool and finish out his career, then take over as manager.
