Saturday Night Links: Lazy Sunday edition

Yesterday, Javier Aguirre was banned for 3 matches for his stupidity against Panama. In my eyes, that’s not nearly enough. It should be 5 or even 10 matches because a coach’s contact with an opposing player is unforgivable, let alone a coach kicking at said player. There’s something to be said for maintaining one’s discipline.

Apparently “one-club man” John Terry has had a meeting with Roman Abramowich in which he said he wanted to talk to Manchester City. The transfer would be for about £50 million while Terry would sign a contract worth £250,000 per week and receive a signing bonus of £5 million. That’s a lot of green. F365 suggests that the transfer fee would go toward a bid for Milan’s Alexandre Pato while the hole at center back would be filled by Porto’s Bruno Alves.

Over at SI.com, The Limey analyzes why Rafa Benítez is having such a rough time in the transfer market. As usual, Benítez does not blame himself but instead everyone else. He says he just can’t compete with the large sums of money spent on transfers. He’s right, of course, but he’s also the guy who paid £18 million for Glen Johnson.

Grant Walh’s list of thrilling players is interesting.
