    I know 2013/2014 season just came to a conclusion but I think we need a thread for the 2014/2015 season as teams are starting to make changes already! Tbh, I wanted to start a thread on this forum...:grin:

    Any-who, congratulations to the champs from the top leagues in 13-14.
    EPL-Man City
    La Liga- Atletico Madrid :mad:
    Serie A- Juve (record 102 points!! :eek:)
    Bundesliga- FC Bayern Munchen
    Ligue 1- PSG
    Eredivisie- AFC Ajax



    This off-season should see various teams making moves in the transfer market so it should be pretty awesome.

    Apparently FC Barca isn't wasting anytime as Luis Enrique is now the new boss at the Camp Nou. Ter Stegen is now officially the new GK. Rafinha (Thiago's younger brother) and Deulofeu have been called back from their respective loans at Celta and Everton. Expect many more changes from Barca.

    Man Utd. have also handed the reins to Van Gaal. We'll see what kind of football he will be bringing to Old Trafford.

    Anyways, here's to an awesome 2014-2015 season!!:grin::grin:

    My goal is to find a club to support this season. Just been admiring all the teams in the top league and enjoying how beautiful the game is when played by the best players in the world. Time to start getting some emotion behind it!

    FC Barca is where it's at.. Like I said last time, Mes Que Un Club (More than a club). Besides, this was a bad year for our standards so at least people can't accuse you of being a bandwagon fan when we reclaim the top next year :grin:.

    Haha and the recruiting begins!

    The World Cup could go a long way too if any of the clubs have multiple players really stand out.

    INITIAL SQUAD DEADLINE - 13.05.2014 16:25
    SIXTEEN FCB STARS IN WORLD CUP FRAME

    The forthcoming World Cup is even making its presence felt at Bayern training: on Tuesday, 30 days prior to the opening match in Brazil, the FCB stars worked out with the official tournament match ball. And many of the players also listened out for a call from their home countries, as the deadline for preliminary squad nominations is midnight Tuesday, when national head coaches must supply FIFA with provisional squad lists of up to 30 men. fcbayern.de names the Munich stars likely to be in the World Cup frame.

    Javi Martínez, Thiago:
    The FCB pair are in Spain’s 30-strong preliminary squad. Barcelona provide the largest single contingent to La Roja with seven players, followed by Champions League finalists Real and Atletico Madrid with four apiece. National coach Vicente del Bosque has named three uncapped players: David de Gea (Manchester United), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid) and Ander Iturraspe (Bilbao).

    Xherdan Shaqiri:
    As expected the 22-year-old will feature for the Swiss. At the squad announcement on Tuesday in Zurich, ex-Bayern boss Ottmar Hitzfeld named nine Bundesliga players in his final 23-strong party.

    Daniel van Buyten:
    The Bayern centre-back is one of three Bundesliga stars on Marc Wilmots’ 24-man list. The English Premier League provides the largest group with 11 players. The number one keeper is Thibaut Courtois from Atletico Madrid.

    Arjen Robben:
    Bondscoach Louis van Gaal is set to make his announcement on Tuesday evening, but the former FCB supremo had already made clear the position regarding FCB’s speedy winger: “As of now only Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie know they’re definitely going to Brazil.“

    Franck Ribéry:
    The French list will also be released on Tuesday evening, but Ribéry is in any case one of the first names on boss Didier Deschamps’ team-sheets.

    Mario Mandzukic:
    Mandzu is as good as certain of a trip to South America, although he is suspended for the Croats’ opening match against the hosts following a red card in the final qualifying fixture.

    Julian Green:
    At just 18, the FC Bayern II striker has an outside chance of making it to the World Cup. US and former Munich coach Jürgen Klinsmann has named Green, who took the decision in March to represent the USA rather than Germany, in his 30-man preliminary squad.

    Already nominated:philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Müller, Mario Götze, Jérôme Boateng and Toni Kroos are in Germany’s 30-strong preliminary squad.

    Dante has been named in the final 23-man Brazil party.

    Coaches must submit their final 23-man World Cup squads by midnight on 2 June. In the event of injury players may be replaced by standby candidates up to 24 hours prior to their team’s first group match.

    Don't be a fan of Liverpool, Bayern, or Barca. We need some other fans around here. Like Man City fans :)

    I'm interested in seeing what Barca will be doing to renovate the club. I feel like Afellay, Tello, Alexis, Pedro, dos Santos, Mascherano, Cuenca and Song will all be sold, to along with Puyol and Pinto leaving. Whatever team Alexis Sanchez goes to (apparently Juventus) I'll be rooting for

    Yaya Tourè possibly wants out of City, his agent claims. Feel disrespected by the club owners and office.

    We at Bayern would welcome him with open arms. :p
