It’s finally happened–the Feds have gotten a whiff of atdhe.net and it is no more.
Many here and across the football world have relied on this great streaming website for your football fix. It was your go to place that never failed to bring you a decent stream for you to watch your team.
But alas, it is no more.
So what do you guys do now? Well, iraqgoals is still alive, as is myp2p, but if you want advice, and my advice is always good, you’d get yourself some Veetle. Yeah, you’ll be behind sometimes, but who cares? The present is overrated anyway and the future scares people. Go with the safe route, you know you want to.
[Update x2 ] Or, apparently, you could just go to this website: http://atdhenet.tv/ You can all thank Nav and geeve for saving your lives; your Cule ones, anyway. Yay, Nav! Yay, geeve!
By the way, Kxevin was the one who wanted this development posted, conveniently leaving out there was a replacement site. Was this some kind of conspiracy against the newbie? Was I stealing too many of his hits? Was he mad that most of you went to my LiveBlog and not his? Who knows the answer. Support #TeamKari people! 😛 (Or don’t. I’d probably lose to Kxevin anyway…)
In other news, Xavi just keeps on endearing himself to Gooners (that’s what Arsenal fans call themselves if you are unaware. Comes from Gunners–Arsenal’s nickname). He told Eurosport, and this is paraphrased, that it is Fabregas’ ultimate dream to join us. His full quote:
“His greatest desire is to return to the club. He would adapt very easily because he grew up here. His ultimate dream is to return to Barca, but then Arsenal and Barcelona have to agree. He is raised here, and has the DNA of Barcelona, but it is not up to us.”” **
Yup, key words being: Arsenal and Barcelona have to agree, which, if I can give some Cules (and Gooners) some false hope, may not happen. At least, not this summer. If you missed what happened yesterday, I hope that rock you were under was comfortable. 😀 Torres signed for Chelsea for a British record fee of 50 million pounds. Andy Carroll replaced him, signing for 35 million pounds from Newcastle (Suarez also joins for 22 million pounds), but what does this have to do with us?
Well, the UK market is majorly inflated right now. Remember all those numbers are in POUNDS not Euros. If we convert David Villa’s price (that’s 40 million Euros) into pounds, he costs less than Andy Caroll. Andy Caroll. Just a show of hands, who the heck knows who Carroll is and what he offers? (If you do, good on ya. You may watch too much EPL though. Wait, I know who he is. Snap, I just insulted myself)
Now, if Andy Caroll, a promising player at most, is worth more than a World Cup winning striker (that was essential at that) and Torres, despite his poor form, WC, and multitude of injuries, can break the British transfer record, Arsenal must be thinking: well, how much is Cesc Fabregas worth now? Much more than what he was worth 2 days ago, that’s for sure. Last time we offered 35 million tops. Arsenal wanted something in the range of 40, but we said, “nuh-uh, man”. That 40 million is just going to go up, way up. Add RoSELL’s prudency with regards to finance and we have an interesting summer ahead.
It’ll be the ultimate debate: does RoSELL’s hard-on for Fabregas outweigh his prudency program or does he stick to what he’s been preaching?
Well, considering he has a background in politics—oh wait that’s Laporta. Well, considering he’s a businessman, he knows how to get what he wants, and justify breaking a promise if he needs to, or the fact that he’s just a jerk, I think we’ll still go after Fabregas in the summer.
But things just got a little more interesting.
Fell free to discuss in the comments below. Actually, no need. Go read Linda’s cracker of an article. It’s that good.
[Another, more important, update] And I can’t believe I forgot this. In the “You just got served“ file goes this, as reported by SoMa, who gets it from Yahoo.es:
During Osasuna-Madrid, CRonaldo gets ticked at Pandiani and sneers, ‘And how much do you make?’ to which Pandiani comes back, ‘I don’t know, but I win as many titles as you lately’.
