Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Winning at home is overrated anyways)

falcao hype has skyrocketed in the last couple of months because HE has skyrocketed in the last few months. scoring at a better rate than messi/penaldo in the league, his team equal top.

plus anyone who knows anything has rated falcao since his porto days at least.

Falcao's run in the final days of la liga, the europa league, the start of the la liga and against chelsea is nothing short of phenomenal

the man can score at every level, against every team, and do it pretty damn often

Whats rather funny is how much the back of Atletico has sky-rocketed too. Courtois went from poor de gea replacement to the top 3 goalkeeper in the la liga. absolutely stunning rise. and atletico's recent form and league position is proof of them and how well they are doing

i'm astonished atletico could afford that

I think it cost them more money to replace aguero than they made selling him

hes worth it, but im not sure what was going through their mind. especially with all that debt

they paid for it with the aguero money. they could've put that money into their debts, and then slid down to a mid table club. or they buy falcao and chase champions league glory, sell falcao + make some money through champions league windfall. what they've done is better than the alternative, which would be slipping into nothingness, being consumed by debt and really becoming obsolete.

i'll link this again, it's a fascinating read.

Being a supporter of a club that's that deep in debt is a tough go. It wasn't long ago that two yanks almost ran us into the ground
