Manchester United reshape squad with Radamel Falcao loan – National Soccer

The transfer fee cost Man U roughly $9 million from AS Monaco and the club has the option to buy Falcao at the end of the loan. Since his European debut in 2009, El Tigre has scored 104 in 139 games for FC Porto, Atletico Madrid and AS Monaco. Falcaos health was of concern as he suffered a season-ending knee injury in January, which held him out of the summers World Cup. Midfielder Shinji Kagawa was also dealt away from Man U as he makes his return to the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

After a turbulent season one year after Sir Alex Fergusons departure, Manchester United started the rebuilding process by shelling out big bucks. With Angel Di Maria making his debut over the weekend and the addition of striker Radamel Falcao, United look to regain their pole position atop the Premier League.

The 28-year-old Colombian joins Manchester United on loan for the rest of this season. With the additional signings of Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, their expensive summer shopping spree has now surpassed a total of 200 million for the clubs new players.

Falcao is one of the worlds most prolific goal scorers. Danny Welbeck agreed to a long-term deal with Arsenal to replace injured Olivier Giroud and Javier Chicharito Hernandez has been loaned out to Real Madrid for the rest of the season. United won the bidding war with competing offers from Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal hot on their heels. After gaining only two points from the first two games of the new campaign, perhaps the Falcao signing was an indication of boss Louis van Gaal hitting the panic button. After placing seventh in the Premier League in a forgettable season under David Moyes, the Red Devils and their worldwide fan base are anxious to get back into the Champions League and towards the top of the table by the end of this season. The international transfer window officially closed on Monday with Manchester United making the biggest impact at the eleventh hour. Whether you see the Falcao transfer as a wise investment or costly mistake, at least Cristiano Ronaldo thinks it was a smart move on his former teams behalf.

. Assuming hes up to proper fitness, he joins one of Englands, and Europes, top rated attacks alongside Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

Falcaos arrival came at a cost to Manchester United as they sold three players over the weekend

Record 12th FA Cup final victory for Arsenal

Goals from Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud underlined the gulf in class between the Gunners and a Villa side which narrowly avoided relegation from the English Premier League this season.

Tim Sherwood’s underdogs might have entertained hopes of an upset, but could merely muster a shot on target as Arsenal dominated from the kickoff.

Only some inspired goalkeeping from Shay Given and errant Arsenal finishing kept the scoreline level until just before the interval when Walcott struck.

The England international, whose career was put on hold by a serious injury in an FA Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur last season, was given the nod over Oliver Giroud by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and repaid his faith.

Alexis Sanchez won a header inside the Villa penalty area and Walcott reacted quickly to volley home emphatically.

Magical strikeChile’s Sanchez effectively ended the match as a contest just after the break when his magical strike from outside the area left Given flapping at thin air.

German international Mertesacker added a third, heading home when left unmarked at a corner, Sherwood left to shake his head on the Villa bench.

Walcott, returning to his best after the injury layoff, left the field to a rapturous reception and his replacement Giroud duly scored a late fourth.

Wenger, winning his sixth FA Cup as a manager, said he had picked Walcott because of the usual defensive line-up deployed by Villa.

“I thought his pace would be a problem because they play a high line. We were dangerous,” said the Frenchman.

The victory took Arsenal out of a tie for 11 wins with arch rival Manchester United, but for Wenger the quality of the performance was what mattered.

“It was convincing because we were at it from the first to the last minute,” he added.

rabbit malocclusion home treatment ?

he his a purebread lionhead btw.

i will take him to the vet tomorrow to check for any infections.

I have a rabbit teeth malocclusion. i dont live in america so there arent excactly special rabbit vets here only for dogs and then normal vets.

in shorti m wondering if i could fix it by cutting the bottom teeth so that the long upperteeth will overlap and therefore his teeth may go back to normal ?. as in the bottom front teeth are overlapping the upper teeth.

but as they are just barely overlapping i was wondering if i would cut the bottom teeth and not the upper teeth so that since the bottom teeth would become quite shorter than the upper teeth and they might go back and the upper teeth will overlap the bottom teeth?

Before i had a rabbit with normal but just overgrown teeth and i took him to the vet and they didnt do much

Andrea Pirlo Signing With NYCFC Should Make You Happy

Pogba and Vidal are two of the most athletically gifted box-to-box midfielders in the world and did shield Pirlo from a lot of defensive responsibility at Juventus.

But he also wont be defending against Leo Messi and Neymar in Major League Soccer and being surrounded by great players certainly doesn’t condemn Pirlo as a defensive burden. Mix Diskerud is the favorite to work on the right side of the midfield diamond. When Diskerud has struggled this season, it has been when he becomes too static with his positioning. Hes one both a World Cup with the Italian national team and the Champions League with AC Milan, feats few in the game can claim.

Many voices have expressed concern about Pirlos fitness and athleticism, questioning his ability to defend effectively in Major League Soccer. His mastery in this facet of the game may be unmatched in the world of football. This is very true. Few have said that this current version of Pirlo is a player that must be built around in order to cover up his defensive flaws.

Pirlo will fit into this lineup just fine. The player affectionately known as The Maestro is a set piece wizard that will definitely take over on free and corner kicks. This is where Pirlo is at his finest, and his addition will add a new threat to the attack.

Accept It, This Is A Win-Win

Adding Pirlo will provide an incredible learning experience for the young players on New York City as well. Juventus occupied the same formation during his time with the club with Pirlo sitting at the back of the diamond, functioning as a deep lying playmaker. I mean, its Andrea Pirlo! The man is a legend and one of the best midfielders weve seen in the last twenty years. Hes played this role in the past for the US National Team and shows tremendous potential with it.

Sometimes sports fans and media have a tendency to overanalyze player movement and team building strategies. Andrea Pirlo is a great acquisition for NYCFC and Major League Soccer. He is joining a team in NYCFC that hasnt gotten a free kick on target in recent memory and is completely inept on corners. He has an unreal ability to provide quality crosses into the box and score on set pieces. He won the Serie A Footballer of the Year award for three straight years from 2012-2014 for crying out loud! The people who dont think Pirlo is a good use of the final DP slot would have found a way to be critical of any signing; dont let that negativity get to you.

Many critics like to mention that Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal will not be on either side of the midfield to protect him in the defensive third. And haters are going to hate.

Wait, Were People Actually Critical Of This?

Its hard to believe that this signing has to be defended. Andrea will most likely maintain the same position with New York City while Frank Lampard occupies the top spot right behind the forward pair.

On the other side Jason Kreis can consider a number of options but Tommy McNamura seems like the best man for the job. He is a truly unique player and it is really hard to find truly unique players.

Much has been made about how Pirlo will fit into this current New York City lineup. Lets not forget that we are talking about a man who was consistently playing all season for Juventus, a defensive juggernaut that only won the Italian domestic league by a ridiculous 17 points. He will make the team better and will be a pleasure to watch. You dont get to where he has as a player without versatility and multidimensional skills.

They Don’t Call Him The Maestro For Nothing

Andrea Pirlo also provides an element to New York City that the team has sorely been lacking. Pirlo has succeeded without the greatest athleticism for years, there is no reason to expect that to change now.

How Will Pirlo Fit Into The NYCFC Squad?

Pirlo actually appears to be a perfect fit for the 4-4-2 diamond formation that Jason Kreis has historically preferred to deploy. At his best, he moves up and down the field, showing great activity on both offense and defense. His athletic ability was criticized when Pirlo was 25, and those critiques will naturally increase now that he has just turned 36.

Look, no one is mistaking Pirlo for a defensive stalwart, but the perception that he is a liability it dramatically overstated. Hes only played a handful of games this season, but has shown incredible offensive creativity along with natural defensive abilities.

Andrea Pirlo will be a member of New York City for 2 seasons so enjoy. Also, only one other player on the field covered as much ground as Pirlo in the Champions League final against Barcelona.

Dont complicate the obvious. I encourage you not to do so in this specific instance.

This is a very good thing, its okay to celebrate it.

Nevertheless, the haters are still among us. The young midfielders on this team will improve from the simple osmosis of just being in the same locker room with a player or Pirlos caliber.. This role will require box-to-box movement from Mix, where he may be at his most productive

Olivier Giroud now wastes a great opening as an easy pass would put Karim Benzema through, but the Arsenal forward miscontrols it and Nigeria cover well.

Morty, in a way I agree, but Brazil can in no way look to sit back with no pressure in front of their own fans.

Paul Pogba is finding some good space in the final third – Nigeria would do well to close that up before he picks a pass.

Nigeria break! But Yohan Cabaye closes up the space excellently!
