    I think his current deal has priced him out of the market, even for the likes of City whether they pretend to be above board or not. That's before you take into account whether or not he can leave for free or whether teams have to meet the release clause (or maybe agree a fee with Barcelona). I also think Barcelona have said something about how they protected him from most of the fallout after he lost his tax case and got a prison sentence a few years ago. The insinuation being that should he leave, they'll release all sorts that could get him in trouble again. The big Spanish clubs pull all sorts of shady shit so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility.

    Kelvin (The Wanker) McKenzie

    I've yet to see any evidence that proves Kelvin is not a paedo.

    Thiago Alcantara

    The rest of the Bundesliga will laugh their arses off at the nerve of Bayern, who procure the league's best talent all the time by doing exactly that.

    Have a rant thread

    Indian weddings are full of the freeloading type. They'll get invited because the bride or groom's parents sort-of know them. At least 80% of the people there will have no idea who they are. They'll keep themselves to themselves once they're there. They'll usually be the first up when it's serving time and will make sure to have seconds. They won't bother to say hello to the wedding couple or their parents. They'll never have a gift (even an envelope with a small amount of money). Once they've eaten, they'll just fuck off. Usually with a bottle of two of soft drinks. During 'wedding season' they'll have been invited to at least half a dozen weddings, and this is pretty much every year so this will be routine. I almost admire them.
  7. I have heard preciously one song from each band. The Motley Crue one is in the OP, but this is what I've heard of The National.

    Well this is turning out to be a shit day

    It might be more useful if they can use it for your house instead.

    That should ring alarm bells as to the quality of the builders. Who drew the plans, Paulie's missus?

    For all of us dumb cunts, can you tell us all the ways they can take money out? It might give a little more credence to your obvious assertion that they ARE taking money out of the club. EDIT: Use the FSG thread rather than the blueshite thread.

    Do we know for sure whether the figures (not in our accounts but from various other sources) showing what we pay our players is the gross or net amount?

    Our wage bill include all players, coaches, directors and staff. A hefty chunk of it will be bonuses for the players for hitting performance targets (winning trophies, number of goals, number of appearances etc), which is how our player contracts are set up. Put it this way, if we were scratching around for 4th and not competing for any other trophies, the amount paid out in bonuses would be significantly less so the wage bill would be some way lower than £300m. As for City, the largest chunk of salaries and bonuses are covered by the Sheikh City Football Group, so City's books are easier to balance.

    Rodriguez, Allan and Doucoure? A lot of competition for Tom Davies' place.

    The world of a woman.

    Stupid idea #1. Assuming his missus isn't a shortarse or a dwarf, the folly of this idea in homes is beyond me. You are handling something that is likely to be piping hot when it comes out of the microwave. Why have the microwave that high up? Also stupid is having the microwave above the stove. This seems to be a theme in AMerican kitchens in particular. Opportunist thieves have sophisticated equipment that can communicate with the security chip in your key, downloading all the data required to start and drive off with your car without the need for the actual key. The Faraday cage provides interference to stop them from doing so. Stupid idea #2. Keyless Entry/Go. The sheer laziness of people has led to things like this, where you need all sorts of extra shit for added security. I'm fine with remote central locking, but I didn't realise that putting a key into the ignition was a problem that needed solving.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    I'm not sure that bit is entirely accurate. They signed Kovacic on a loan-to-buy deal just before the transfer ban kicked in. They were still under the ban before it became a permanent deal, which was an amount agreed at the time of the initial loan, as opposed to only what they were allowed to spend. They were allowed to complete the deal because they held his registration at the time of the ban.

    Dads taking their kids sport far too seriously

    There must have been a few studies and theories about what turns parents into batshit crazy dickheads when watching their kids play sports. I'm sure in most cases the parents were bellends already, but there have to be a fair few who just flip a switch at game time. All the above anecdotes are testament to that. I don't have a lot of time for those parents who foist sports and various activities on their kids. It seems to me they do this just to brag to friends, family or work colleagues about how brilliant their kids are. They always appear far more enthusiastic about the activities than the kids themselves, who maybe enjoy these activities on some level (having fun, spending time making friends etc) but not to the extent where they want to become the best or some sort of child prodigy.

    It doesn't surprise me that you like 'Wannabe'. I bet you bought that shit when it came out.

    That is pretty fucking far from the worst song ever, especially when we live in a world where 'Wannabe' exists.

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    I don't think they actually want to sign him given that they're about to sign Van Der Beek. I think it's an attempt by Thiago's agent and Bayern for us to get our skates on with a deal. The Mancs won't mind being name-dropped because they know it's likely to make Bayern jack up the price. Either we end up paying a bit more than we wanted, or we simply walk away. There is a 3rd option though, which is us paying what Bayern wanted in the first place (€30m).

    They actually had a very well-balanced side at the beginning of Messi's international career at the 2006 World Cup, and a capable manager in Pekerman who allowed their attacking talents to flourish in a system that was also tactically sound. I don't know why he took a cautious route against one of the most open German sides in the quarter final. The game went to penalties and Germany's nerve held out (as you'd expect in a shoot-out). They'd been the best side in the tournament up to then.

    I don't see the point in arguing which player is better. Both are standard bearers for their respective eras. For what it's worth, I don't think Messi would have been as dominant in Maradona's era, just like I don't think Maradona would have been effective in the current era. The game back then was played at a much slower pace, and teams utilised hatchet men to neutralise their opponents' best players. They were allowed to get away with so much more. The tactics and team set-ups used were different. There is more knowledge and awareness of players now than there was back then. Argentina are fortunate to have had not one but two players of such quality. Another thing I don't get is this view that Argentina in 1986 were a bunch of pub footballers carried by a genius to a World Cup win. Maradona was phenomenal back then, but his supporting cast were clearly strong enough as a unit to do what they did. Argentina at their best have always been this mixture of silk and steel. By saying the other Argentina players were bang-average is to say that all the other players and teams at that tournament were less than that.
