Since you identify as a Jew based on your ancestral homeland does that also make you Asian? Like in the census?

 

Ashkenazi is european, sephardi is asian.

Sephardi is Spain and Portugal. But they both originate in Western Asia, which is the point.

I see. I went out with a girl back at uni, and she gave me a brief explain, her family was from Morocco originally, like a couple of generations up, so I just took her word for it. (I realise Morocco is in Africa, but you know what I mean)

Loads went to North Africa when they were booted out of Spain.

 

Think this is getting away from FF though.

I guess partly, if you go back far enough. I always answer White British on those forms though.

 

Ultimately we're all African anyway.

Hasn't the 'we are all from Africa'thing been called into question recently and Turkey/Asia/Middle East might also be possible?

I'd say geography, because if it was footballing associations, we'd have to count our Australians.

That rules the German-born Sahin out, then.

 

Edit - I need to read the thread before posting.

Nah.

 

The dominant theory is still that everyone outside of Africa can be traced back to the same wave of migration.  There are some competing theories about what became of the descendants of earlier waves of migration, but ultimately all of those waves originated in Africa.

Continents are a load of bollocks really aren't they?

Russia is in Europe and also the biggest country in Asia.

Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia are nominally in Europe, but further east than Turkey which is the meeting point of the two continents. 

And the whole Arabian peninsula is really in between Africa and Asia, but if you're going to draw the line at the Red Sea, then part of Egypt ends up in Asia.

I know Avi Cohen was a long time ago, but I don't think he pre-dates Moses.

He fucking ran like it, though.

 

Getting back to Minamino, apparently he'll be keeping the number 18 shirt he wore at Salzburg. Let's hope he fares better than the last wearer here.

To be fair, Liverpool made an error there and put Alberto’s IQ on the shirt by mistake.

So when he scores a 'goal of the season' contender in his first handful of games, to start actually getting worried?

Who was that? I am too old to keep track of shirt numbers nowadays.

I fucking hate Turkey. If it turns out that I’m Turkish I’ll be furious.

Sky also said Ancelotti was Everton manager. Maybe they will turn up together? Dr Evil and Mini Me.

I know but sounds promising! Anyway Ancelotti hasn't turned them down - yet!
