    First it was the MLS now it's the Emirates. With the kind of money being splashed by these oil rich nation, i wont be surprised to see some more world class players head out there.

    Quincy Owusu Abeyie formerly of Pompey just moved to the gulf for a reportedly $8 mil and is said to be making $90K a week, Alfonso fomerly of Milddlebrough is making about $60K and Aruna Dindane also signed on. What is going on in the Gulf ?
    Damn, i should have paid attention in gym class.

    The funny thing is that I would watch a powerful MLS. Compared to the Middle East, Americans play an ok football/soccer that is pleasant to watch, they have a good national team and the stadiums (from what I saw) are full of supporters. The market is huge and could bring a lot of money to the already rich US football/soccer clubs.

    Not surprised by this, he's 36, might aswell earn a load of money playing in an easy league in hot weather before he retires...oh wait, he's been earning a load of money playing in an easy league in hot weather for years.

    Perfect place for Afonso Alves though...the lazy prick. Didn't realise he was out there now.
