    Players move - I wouldn't call Costa a Judas if he decided he didn't like London. But then you also wouldn't be getting a shirt :D :p

    No, but I've heard of it. HSV is quite possibly the biggest waste of potential in first-division Europe right now; they should be comfortably competing for CL spots and the 2nd place behind Bayern given their financial power and large fanbase, but the club's culture and management is so backwards and toxic that they are instead staving off relegation. It's sickening.

    I was looking at the squad and they have some interesting names. How has Cleber done this season? He was pretty good with Ponte and Corinthians in Brazil.

    Speaking of German fan bases, I'll ask you the same question I did in the Bayern forum -- who are the top 5 fan bases in Germany in terms of number of supporters?

    With regards to Cleber, I don't know, I don't really make a habit of watching HSV games, considering they tend to be very ugly, but I will say in the one or two games I've seen him in, he looked alright.

    Bayern, Hamburg, Dortmund, Stuttgart, and Schalke would be my bet.

    Even if he's going to turn on us, as you think he may, Atletico simply don't have the funds to buy him.

    Do any of you guys take woman's soccer seriously? I honestly would question any serious fan if they watched the woman's World Cup with the copa America and u20 World Cup going on. I guess what turns me off about it is how much people act like the USA woman's team is a big deal or how great they are.... Then you get the casuals saying a woman could play men's pro soccer when in reality an u15 boys team beats them 9 out of 10 times. I honestly think if you gave me 2 weeks I could train just big soccer Brazil members and we could win the cup lol. Maybe it's just annoying because I live in the USA.

    I honestly don't watch any women's sports. Sometimes I will catch a game here and there if Brazil is playing and it's something big. Like Brazil x USA in women's soccer. In football, very rarely I am impressed by some of the players although the quality seems to be getting better. Some of the moves Marta has pulled off when I've watched her are pretty impressive.

    In the Olympics I will watch some women's volleyball if Brazil is playing again.

    That's not to say there is no market though. Specially in the US. Women here do love to watch women's sports. Specially football by girls who play it.

    I only watch it on rare occasions. I caught Brazil x USA in the last WC with all of that crap happening in extra time. I actually had male friends blow up my phone over that game because they were so desperate to get one over on Brazil in soccer.

    EA Sports seems to be taking it seriously as they are including women national teams on FIFA 16....

    Watching Marta play was entertaining but overall the women game is terrible to watch.

    I watch all of them Womens, u9, u15 etc.

    Sorry if I sound disrespectful, but you're crazy if you think you're half as good as some of these women. Or could even train to be on that level.

    One thing I like about women's soccer? They don't act like ********ing babies, cough cough, Neymar. Marcelo. Dani Alves.

    I don't think anyone's saying that; just that the level of play is significantly inferior to the men's game. If people like to watch it, God bless. I don't have the time to watch that much football to begin with, so am not going to spend it watching an inferior version of the game. To each their own, however.

    Lol yea I get it and I've played with d1 girls before and idk I think we could hoist the woman's World Cup. I don't think they are all that skilled and someone like wambach can't rely on her physicality against a grown man. I've been pondering this for awhile. It sounds crazy I get it. Give us 2 weeks physical work and 2 weeks field work who knows.
