    Indeed, would rather Wigan go up from a personal point of view.

    With Dunne, Onouha and Barton in the side, I have to cheer for my ex-City guys.

    Nasri is a mercurial player. The FFF should have noted that he is on good form currently.

    Hmmm, though he might not be the most consistent player in the French squad he is one of the few who are potentially world class on a good day, beside Ribery for example.
    How many City players are playing in Brazil Sandolf ? Kompany, Hart, Toure, Agüero, Negredo....? Half of the team ? :cautious:;)

    Dzeko, Milner, Silva, Fernandinho, Zabaletta... there might be a few more.

    The French have not selected him due to his disruptive nature. The one thing the French have suffered from in recent tournament is lack of unity, i say well done Deschamps. From what i'm reading, fellow French players are not too bothered he's not going.

    I've had a little flutter on Belgium as an outisde bet, 20/1 is worth a few quid.

    Nasri is less disruptive than the English WAGs. It is all overblown.

    You dont know that, Deschamps hasn't left him out for nothing. I think its fair to say Nasri is not the only one whose upset the Apple Cart with the French but he's been known to throw fits when subbed, start fights with fellow players away on tournaments, who needs that, he's not exactly Zidane is he. I think his omission is being blown out of proportion, he's not world class, he's decent but thats it.

    As for the WAGS, any one who can ruin Englands chances are welcome ;)

    Well if we want to turn it into an episode of Behaving Badly, you can make a case for Nasri, the FFF or Zidane.

    What are the odds on the Russians? Vlad Putin will certainly be there at the trophy presentation if that was to happen. :D

    As much as I am riveted to the eventual fate of HSV... I couldn't give a toss about FC Bayern and BVB. My interest in the FA Cup is just to see Arsenal lose. Both teams can't lose the DFB Pokal final. That would be interesting. :D

    Really enjoyable even though you know who won, Hull were really good and could quite easily have been 3-0 up. One trophy in nine years for Arse is little to shout about.

    Wow..40m for David Luiz. :eek: Yes, he's a good player but is he worth it ? :cautious:
    Apparently money isnt an issue at PSG....
    They sold Mata and Luiz now, any predictions or rumours who might join Chelsea ?
