    Dear All,

    Thanks

    ok, overall its not too bad. Some suggestions/comments.

    - lose the splash screen. They serve no real purpose on a site like this.. Also, your colors aren't websafe, so the outlines can be seen.
    - Repeating Backgrounds are not a good thing...
    - Its a slow load..
    - I like the overall presentation of the site, but its a bit too dark for my liking..

    3/5

    EDIT: i change my mind, i will give it 3.5/5 good job.

    Hey thanks for your review. I wish to reply to some observations you said.

    1) I am not sure if you are into soccer sites, but most of them have a splash screen, so I chose that idea. At the moment it is like that since the site is not 100% finished, however in the future it will contain wallpaper downloads and some exclusive news we might have

    2) Regarding the repeating background, you are right but I had no better idea what to do.

    3) It slow I agree, however I think that my server is slow. No budget at the moment to improve it.

    4) I had to choose that colour scheme cause the colours are red and black and I had to stick to that idea.

    However, thanks for the rating, I think it is quite good!

    Thanks for the time to review the site too!

    Interviews should have a capital letter on your nav.

    If you roll off your "media" nav bar via the word media - it doesnt disappear.

    3.5/5 - good job. - whydo you have the repeating logo background - it isn't visible on the actual site as far i can see,.

    1) Yeah I have to amend that Interviews nav.

    2)I cannot understand why it does not disappear, the code is the same for all navigation, can you help?

    3) I have'nt the slightest idea what to do instead of that background

    Thanks for the rating

    I like the site. I suggest you get rid of the background image on your drop-down menus and also add some sort of border to the menus, maybe black.

    Also, your media menu will not disappear b/c you have the "M" in mediaMenu capitalized. Javascript is case sensitive. See below:

    MM_showHideLayers('clubMenu','','hide','historyMen u','','hide','matchesMenu','','hide','MediaMenu',' ','hide','fansMenu','','hide')
    }

    I don't know if you've changed your nav- but now the problem is with all the menu bars

    No I did not change anything, I don't know what to do. Sometimes they fade, sometimes they don't

    On top of the other things that have been said, I have this to add: On the homepage, the main content has a black background behund the text, but on the rest of the pages in the site, the text is on a red bg. I'm not a huge fan of inverted text, but the white text looks better on a black bg than the red bg IMO.

    Interesting look. There are some things I would consider revising, though.

    The highlight column on the right takes up a considerable amount of real-estate on longer pages.

    Both columns (right and left) seem a bit detached from the rest of the design, likely due to the background image.

    The font (white on red bg) is a bit difficult to read. Consider making your content black text on a light bg.

    Popup menus blend in with the site a little TOO much... they almost disappear.

    The grid in the content bg is doing nothing for you

    Homepage seems a bit awkwardly laid out. Maybe have less columns of information in the middle.

    All in all, it looks like you just need to get a pencil and paper and rethink the details of the layout. Other than that, it looks very complete.

    Good job
