Copa América starting tonight. Really looking forward to it.

It's a wonderful collection of talent, really. Messi, Neymar, James, Jackson Martinez, Tevez, Aguero, Higuain, Sanchez, Vidal, Cuadrado, Falcao, Godin, Coutinho, Cavani. And the list continues.

Argentina and Chile are the favorites, in my opinion. Sampaoli's crazy pressing style will shine in front of their crowd. Colombia is very strong (I mean, Cuadrado-James-Martinez-Falcao is a wonderful attack, if they play together). Brazil is testing its team still, so not sure what to expect. Dunga has put together a tactically organized and defensively solid team, as expected, and Brazil has the second best player in the tournament, but 4 players from the starting squad are injured. Uruguay will miss Suarez, but they are so good in Copa that I'm sure they'll be dangerous. Ecuador have a good team too. Exciting times.

My bad, I knew it was one of those two!

So, this happened at Copa America last night. Warning: NSFW.

I can't believe it. Gonna miss seeing him play.

Van Gaal is really collecting players he's worked with previously. Still wondering what the heck happened between him and Van Persie though.

Really? You wonder? Its called Ego's clashing. LvG and van Persie's couldn't possibly fit in one room. I'm surprised they lasted a season.

Did not see that move from Schweinsteiger coming either. Love that guy. Classy.

Yet they worked well together last world cup! So it's rather odd that it didn't work in Manchester.

I guess they lasted then because van Persie was in shape during the WC after that, unfortunately for him it all went downhill at ManU and during the Euroqualifiers.

Thats when shit hits the fan. RvP is not easy to wrok with, neither is van gaal.
I remember the story about van Gaal going apeshit and dropping his pants in Bayern Muchens dressingroom, to tell the players to grow some balls.

Really curious about the Coutinho-Firmino pairing. Two of my favorite players in all of football.

Holy crap is anyone else here watchign PSV ManU?

Shaw just fell down after a tackle and broke his leg in a horrible way. I accidentally saw the repeat of the moment, it looked horrible! He's being wheeled off to the hospital right away.
