Toure had a fantastic game. I wonder if Pelligrini has been sacked yet?

The best Barcelona team ever in the Spanish league with a total of 91 points, 1 loss, and a record breaking season. Messi with his 33rd and 34th goals. I have a friend of mine there who placed a bunch of photos on facebook and it just looks crazy over there. He must be over the moon to witness it all. It brings back feelings of when I was in Germany for the 2006 world cup. So awesome.

Barca related... was Henry just resting for the World Cup all season? Perhaps that's also what Adu was doing...except he didn't make the US roster - Bob must have missed the memo on resting players being better!

"Great players in all World Cups are often those who have been able to rest during the season, just look at Zidane four years ago," Uefa president and former France international Michel Platini told Journal du Dimanche. "I think certain players save themselves and I hope that's why we haven't seen much of them this season."

i dont think germany misses much without Ballack. He is getting old and slow. His experience will be missed. I concur, Toure had an excellent game.
