07:08 AM ET 07.05 | Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes delivered a brutal assessment of Arsenal ahead of the upcoming season. "Arsenal just flatter to deceive. They may play the prettiest football, but it doesn't always produce results, does it?" said Scholes. "It doesn't irritate me that people keep going on about them being the best footballing team because while they are doing that, we are winning games. They do play the best football to watch at times, but what is the point if you are not winning anything?"

Why are you still spewing hate? I though after a long holiday weekend you would come back with an upbeat attitude.

In other non-Manchester United news, German Under-17's sink England on the way to World Cup semi-finals where they are set to play host nation Mexico.

Also, Samed Yesil now has scored 18 goals in 19 matches for the Germany U-17's. Time to call him up to the full squad before he decides he's actually Turkish?

Also, one of my all-time favorite players, Hasan Salihamidzic has finally left Juventus and returned to the Bundesliga, signing with Magath's Wolfsburg. Not sure he has much left in the tank, but I look forward to watching him play once again.

And if you were following the Los Lobos guy, aka DallasCowboys, in his new TD from last week, apparently he created 5+ dupes to vote in the TD. Very exciting stuff.

So what's your prediction for the Top 5 in the Bundesliga next season?

It's nice to see you made it through the 4th alright. If I was to bet which poster would not survive the 4th it would be you. ;) With the beer and strippers then you throw in fireworks that's just asking for trouble.

Scholes sounds bitter.

From Yanks Abroad:

When he was in US national team camp last March, he told the media that he did not want to play for Germany. He is very insistent that this is still true and that his top international goal right now is to represent the US at the World Cup.

"No. That is absolutely not the reason why I missed the Gold Cup," Chandler stated emphatically. "It is my goal and dream to represent the United States at the 2014 World Cup. What I said in March is true. I will absolutely not play for Germany. There is no way that will happen."

Coentrao to Madrid for 20m Euro and Garay (make weight of 10m???). Not sure how this move makes much sense to be honest.

So I guess that means that I should familiarize myself with him as we'll be buying him soon...
