My local club lost a championship two years ago on an obviously fixed match(involved the actual winner and another club).

Large sums were bet on that match in SO-Asia, but nobody gave a damn. Hope they **** up the domestic league.

As far as approach and style of play, it's terrific. And it's competitive. But for this kind of stuff to come up in the middle of the year...it's ridiculous. And it's every single season. Dortmund are defending 2x champions, they have a great team that's still in the CL. They're trying to catch up and retain the title, and this comes out now? Bayern reigns supreme and it's strange, as they don't even win every year...and the only reason they don't win is because they're unbalanced and they disappoint. But it's not good for the league. They're so far above the other teams. Even La Liga...at least they have two teams.

All this Neymar talk needs to be taken with a grain of salt, just last week this dude was set to move to Barcelona this summer after the Confederations cup. I will say though I think it would be quite interesting if Neymar went to Bayern or City and Barcelona got Kun Aguero (as they reportedly are set to make a bid this summer if they miss out on Neymar).

we would have to pay double of the neymar's price to get kun, around 50-60 millions, and the expectations would be huge for him so he might never live up to them... playing alongside messi is not good for another world class striker...

No team in their right mind would pay double Neymar's price tag for Aguero, that makes no logical sense. I read 45 Million is what City would be looking for Kun and normally I would 100% agree with that notion that strikers that play with Messi don't do well but they link up extremely well for Argentina and he would essentially be playing the same position (on the left flank/wing) for Barcelona as he does for Albiceleste.

Did you see Neymar vs England? Nowhere to be seen, can't handle the cold. How's he going to do in Bavaria? Neymar isn't that good, he's not even the best player on Brazil, he's more likely to be Robinho 2 then Pele 2. He's fast and quick but pretty weak and gets easily knocked off the ball from what I seen by physical opponents.

that speaks more about sports media than the Bundesliga, though. "Journalists" making rumors up ... the recent Lewandowski was traced to a german tweet that was mistranslated/interpreted by an Italian TV station

I saw him play vs Bosnia and he was awful. Missed 2-3 sitters and got pushed off the ball very easily.

He sucked in the last Copa America too.

He has like flashes of genius, like sometimes amazing freekicks or flashy dribbles that you can't even believe but I've never seen him put together a whole game where he looks dangerous, even against really shitty teams. I've only seen him play maybe 20 full games though, but still for a guy who's supposed to be near Maradona level I never come away with that impression. His decision making is also pretty bad.

Don't think he'll pan out at all.
