Talk of the Turnstile – May 30th

Welcome to another edition of Talk of the Turnstile, bringing a weekly round up of all things football and SoccerStarz!

Oh so close, literally seconds remaining and we would be saying that Atletico are European Champions, alas we are not. A Sergio Ramos header in the 93rd minute crushed Atleti hearts and gave Real all the momentum that they needed. A further three goals in extra time including a goal from Gareth Bale gave Real Madrid the trophy with the big ears and La Decima (their 10th European Cup).

World Cup warm up matches are currently on going with England due to play Peru at Wembley. We’ll discuss the fall out next week as this Talk of the Turnstile goes to press before the match kicks off!

Luis Suarez could be absent from facing England and the World Cup entirely after having minor surgery on his knee. Will that have an affect on Uruguay qualifying? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

SoccerStarz were delighted to announce the release of the PSG Champions Pack. You can view this pack by clicking here


World Cup is only 11 days away!!!!


Some brief headlines (rather Southampton dominated at the moment)

  • Rickie Lambert looks like he is on his way to Liverpool. A bit of a surprise transfer in all fairness.
  • Adam Lallana is still unsure where he will be nest season, whilst Manchester United and Southampton have resumed talks over the transfer of Luke Shaw.
  • Mauricio Pochettino is the new man in charge of Tottenham Hotspur,
  • Samuel Eto’o has apparently said he would like to join Arsenal

With the close season now upon us, the transfer mill has gone into overdrive. So over the coming months we will try to keep you as updated as possible on the majority of transfers as and when they happen.
