The FC Denver community spent Sunday enjoying each other’s company, eating delicious BBQ prepared food, and of course playing kickball. It was a great time for all and it was capped off by a very competitive kickball game between Girl Power and No Mama No. The game was going back and forth between these two titans of ball kicking, but in the end the ladies kicked the balls the hardest. Home run hero Dede was knocking them out of the park for the ladies, and they caught a lucky break when his buddy Nfansu dropped a pop fly.
I want to thank our club director Eric Fulton for putting this together and getting things organized for the event and also Chris Lobkovich and his lovely wife for bringing food and drinks for everyone to enjoy. I also want to make sure I thank everyone who cooked, cleaned, donated, and just showed up. These events are always a blast and we’d love to make them a regular occurrence.

The coup of the transfer season has to be Man City’s acquiring of Robinho. Man City’s new owners, Abu Dhabi, out bid Chelsea’s Roman Abromovich to gain the Brazilian’s services. Abu Dhabi are set to make Man City a European power house. Not only has Abromovich lost out on Robinho, but now Man City is the richest club in the world. I’m sure that can’t sit well with the Russian billionaire. Just a few seasons ago his spending power was unmatched and he made no secret that he could get whatever player he desired.
Manchester United finally got their man. Tottenham agreed to sell Berbatov to Manchester United for $55 million. Berbatov was unhappy at Tottenham, so the club had little choice but to sell. With all the activity Tottenham has had in the transfer market this summer, i’m sure the $55 million will go a long way in balancing their books. With Rooney, Tevez, Ronaldo, and Berbatov playing up top, Man United look like a team ready to repeat last year’s success.
What do you guys think of how these transfers played out? Personally I’m a little disappointed not to see Robinho with Chelsea. I think the style Scolari is trying to implement at Chelsea would have suited Robinho better.
