Juventus coach Didier Deschamps says no more players will be leaving the club, despite its relegation to Serie B.

"Whoever's under contract at Juventus can speak to as many lawyers as they like, but nothing will happen. The door is shut," Deschamps told reporters Wednesday.

Juventus lost its appeal Tuesday against a July 14 ruling which stripped the Turin giant of its last two Serie A titles and relegated it to the second division with a 30-point penalty for influencing the outcome of matches.

Juve's only respite in the appeal was a cut in its points penalty to 17.

Juventus stars Gianluca Zambrotta, Lilian Thuram, Emerson and Fabio Cannavaro have already transferred to other clubs.

Zambrotta and Thuram went to FC Barcelona. Emerson and Cannavaro linked up with former Juventus coach Fabio Capello at Real Madrid.

Patrick Vieira is expected to join Inter Milan later this week.

Italian media reports suggested that Juventus' remaining big names - goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, strikers Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Trezeguet and midfielder Mauro Camoranesi - were awaiting the outcome of the trial before making decisions about their futures.

Two others, veterans Pavel Nedved and Alessandro Del Piero, signaled their intention to remain at the club before the appeals ruling. source

In a fit of questionable productivity at work this afternoon, I finished the moodtheme I have been working on since the beginning of the WM. It features the German Nationalmannschaft - a mix of players, I tried not to put too much focus on one player. If you use it, please credit me in your userinfo. And, of course, comments are love :)

hey guys, I was watching the news, and I saw that Kikin Fonseca (Mexico) its going to play in a team called Benfica (Portugal) I have no idea of that team, and I was wondering if it is a good team,.....

7 players of mexican team are already playing in Europe =) yeahhh!! that makes me feel so proud...

I also was thinkin that some teams are going to be stronger in the next WC, others that will change a lot of players, like Brazil, they have old players in their team.....
I think Mexico its going to be way to stronger than now, Mexican team its a champion in sub17, which means that we'll have very talented young players playing for us in the next WC....

who u thinkin will be stronger or weaker?

Jul. 25th, 2006 @ 06:12 pm How Can I buy tickets for the countries I 'd like to see?
Current Mood: curiouscurious
Current Music: "Pure Morning"--Placebo
When is the earliest date I can start purchasing them?

Today I met a guy who is visiting from Germany and he told me he got to see the France versus Switzerland game but he had no choice in it. Cos he bought the ticket 2 years in advance through a draw and at the time he had no idea which teams he would get to watch. Because the groups were not established. Is this true that there is a limit of tickets available for purchase for people from each country? Do I need to enter a ticket poole?

hey guys, yesterday I was watching the news, then they said, that Colombia asked for the 2014 WC, they said (colombia) that they could make one.. back in 1986 Colombia actually said the same, that they could make it, and then they said they couldnt, because of the money a WC needs, you know hotels, fields, bla bla, and Mexico made it, we saved the WC =P, and my father told me that, that WC was the best in the history, I guess he told me that b/c we are mexican and very patriotic, soo Im guessing the WC 2014 will be in some latin america country, first they said Brazil, then Mexico then Colombia, and thats cool b/c we could make our 3 WC! we only have 2, 1970 and 1986, soo, what I wanted to ask if that every WC its in a different continent, well its not really that way I guess the WC its made by the country that can make one right?, well Im not sure, that's what I wanted to ask you...
