Mats Hummels has said he is not tempted to move to Manchester United or any other club, adding that what he has at Borussia Dortmund “is truly unique”. The defender, who joined on loan from Bayern Munich in 2008 and then permanently the following year, added that if he moves abroad, it will not be because of money.

As written by Patrick Imoh: After 25 years handing out bookings and overseeing some of the biggest matches the sport has to offer, arguably the most recognizable official in European football is blowing the final whistle on his career.

The Premier League announced Wednesday that Howard Webb is retiring, turning in his refereeing job in favor of assuming a newly-created position that will allow him to oversee the performance an development of the league’s officials.

Webb, who was in charge of both the 2010 World Cup and Champions League finals, has been named the Technical Director of Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

In a statement from the league, Webb’s new role is described as one that will allow him to manage a training program geared towards “the successful development” of referees in the lower leagues, with the ultimate goal of getting them to the top-flight of English football.

Understandably, the 43-year-old is looking forward to the new role:

"I am very excited to start this new chapter in my career after a wonderfully rewarding 25 years on the pitch,” Webb said. “I have spent over a decade with the best seat in the house for Barclays Premier League matches, been lucky enough to be involved in nine UEFA and FIFA tournaments, and taken charge of the UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Cup finals.

Refereeing has given me so much and it’s important that match officials who have had the rewards remain in the game to pass on their knowledge. I also have much more to learn about the business of refereeing and the best place for me to do that is with PGMOL. It’s an incredibly positive working environment and we all have a common goal of improving refereeing."

Iker was balding, no one can deny it. No matter how much you love him you have to admit that. But now he isn't. What the hell? Was it Rogain? Implants? During the Euros he was balding, now not so much. What happened?

The former Portuguese international joins the Ewood Park club on a free transfer following his release from Braga at the end of last season, signing a two-year-deal.


So very happy that Nuno gets to continue playing. I have loved him forever. My favorite currently playing footballer and only 2nd to Eusebio for favorite of all time.

So RTVE are currently keeping us updated with the NT's movements in preparation for the celebrations later this evening which in general is:

"The agenda of the day for the Spanish team. At 15:00CEST they will arrive at Barajas Airport, at 17:00CEST they will be received by King Juan Carlos at the Zarzuela Palace . Later, from 18:00CEST, in an open-top bus, the players will make their particular parade the streets of Madrid, until 20:30CEST to arrive at the Plaza de Cibeles ."

So I declare this the party/celebration post and while we wait for the celebrations to begin, feel free to post pics/celebration pics etc

Also, what do you think Pepe's player introductions will be this year? Can he improve on Euro '08 and WC '10?

Greetings, ontd_fb. I've lurked this comm on and off since the world cup two years ago, today I finally have something to contribute.

34 shots behind the cut )

The rest on my facebook (public link):

If there's anything people would like to use/repost, take whatever, no crediting necessary; but it'd be nice if you leave a comment and let me know where it's going. Cheers.

Edit: I know if I was crazy enough I could have tried stalking/paparazzi stuff, but I did the whole ambushing Liverpool players outside Melwood thing last month and didn't like it much (was great to have the chance to say encouraging things to the players but camera in their face without permission didn't feel nice at all).

Germany was the best selection of 2011 according to France Football magazine, which puts Spain in fourth place in its annual balance after four consecutive years of dominance of the ‘red’.
