Tchau Rafa!!!!

At a time where football may be perceived to be more about money than love, one player that i feel showed more heart on his little finger than most is Brazilian Rafael Da Silva. Unlucky under the LVG era, this little Spartan has decided to move on and play regular football in France, but not before leaving a tribute to the Red Devils and those who follow.

Tchau e gooluck! Nós te amamos! sempre um vermelho!

I want to thank Manchester United fans for all the love during those 8 years. Since I signed with the club I lived incredible moments, after all it was 8 years wearing the shirt of one of the biggest clubs of the world. Thank you Manchester United FC. I also want to thank all employees who always treated me with great affection and gave me greater attention. Thank you United Kingdom, I learned a lot in this country, as a player, and no doubt as a human being, lessons that I will keep for the rest of my life. Thank you Sir Alex Ferguson for always believing in my work and for all the doors that you opened up to me. Now it's a new path, a new challenge, God bless me! Quero agradecer aos torcedores do Manchester United por todo o carinho durante esses 8 anos. Desde que assinei com o clube vivi momentos incríveis, afinal de contas foram 8 anos vestindo a camisa de um dos maior clubes do mundo. Obrigado Manchester United FC. Também agradeço aos vários funcionários que sempre me trataram com muito carinho e dando a maior atenção do mundo. Obrigado Reino Unido, aprendi muito nesse país, como jogador, e sem dúvidas como ser humano, aprendizado que vou levar para toda vida. Obrigado Sir Alex Ferguson por sempre ter acreditado no meu trabalho e por todas as portas que me abriu. Agora é um novo caminho, um novo desafio, que Deus me abençoe!

Luca Toni, 38, Shares The Capocannonieri

As this season draws to a close in most, if not all, of league football, I happened to notice that probably one of football's greatest late developers is at it again as I just happened to realise that Luca Toni of Hellas Verona finished the season as the Serie A top goal scorer, beating the likes of Carlos Tevez, Gonzalo Higuain, Jeremy Menez and so on, just to name a few; with only Mauro Icardi of Inter being able to match this record, as both men scored 22 league goals this past season.

There's beauty in the Beast... Diego Costa


Seems to be that Arsenal fans are pretty confident after their Fa Cup Victory...

Despite City's best effort, or at least all 25 minutes of it, Barcelona still qualified for the Quarter finals for the 8th time in a row.

Highlights: Borussia Dortmund vs Juventus

Juventus rocked the very foundation of the Wesfalenstadion as the started their route with an early Tevez to eventually win the game and the draw in a convincing manner to show that Juve are back in town and that they mean business. Dominant from the get-go, they gave Jurgen Klopp's men tons of trouble and a Tevez brace, each goal scored at both ends of a Morato goal solidified Juve's hold on the draw.
