Dave has yet to fill out a bio.
Dave, so sorry, mate! I have just seen your message on my wall. I wanted to ask you, If for example, Messi or Ronaldo were playing in the German league, and player like Muller, Ribery etc were playing in La liga, would you still root for them to win the ballon D'or based on their INDIVIDUAL accomplishment?
hey dave, do you have a facebook or something, id like to get your thoughts on this current Bayern team
Where is your mighty Bayern now?
when will you die ?
Ummm, stay away from him Andy. He's taken.
Hey, Dave, do you have Twitter, Facebook, or something? I'd like to speak with you about footy. Please let me know. Thanks.
Hey Guys, did some research, because I like research and talking about overall league depth/skill. Here are the records the different leagues have so far this year in non-friendly matches against other leagues. Probably not shocking to any of us (PL is actually weighed down by including Wigan, but I look at the whole table, or even off the table, not just at the top..cough..cough

Numbers don't lie Folks
What happened to your guarantee that City wouldn't just beat Barca, but that they'd "Destroy" us? Your precious citizens lost 2-0, and that's WITH Pique's goal being wrongly called offsides and a city defender blocking the ball with his hand in the box.
What happened Dave? I can't wait to hear your mountain of excuses. I can't wait.
Now sit down and shut up until you learn a thing or two about football that's outside of Germany.
lol Gotze and Neymar. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (smh) I'm clearly the superior. After all, who else has played for Real Madrid instead of Penaldo? (and if you bring up that he is suspended in La Liga currently, i will say to you: "STFU! Lemme be right for once"). Hala Atletico!
I've really been enjoying the rise of Gotze and i've loved watching him this season. I, too, am bored shitless of all the Neymar love and have been impressed with Gotze's fantastic goal return.
A few theories on why he isn't talked about as much:
- Bundesliga (poor) marketing compared to others. TV exposure compared to Liga is bad.
- His decision to join Bayern upset the hipster BVB fans' feelings
- Pep stole the limelight (4-1-4-1 and moving Lahm into DM)
- They beat City at the Etihad w/out him (sub 85 min)
- He's not the poster boy of the home World Cup nation that starts this June
- Bayern are walking the league and everyone's decided they're not a fan of it
- Pursuit of Lewandowski detracted from Gotze
Just a few, but all probably have a little weight in them each. I watched Bayern instead of Arsenal this weekend because I wanted to watch him.
