  1. Napoli president rules out signing Africans committed to Nations Cup

    You would think that someone that is in his position would know that some things you don’t say out loud.
  2. Frenkie de Jong | The last muppeting lap

    Exactly. I would guess around 17m more...
  3. Hannibal Mejbri | 2022/23 Performances

    I really like this post, especially the bolded part; learning what you CAN'T get away with anymore is as big a part of the development/transition as anything else players trying to make the final step face. I saw it with Elanga last year and the jury is still out on whether he can adapt his game...
  4. Transfer Tweets - Manchester United - 2022/23 | Follow the OP rules and check the quality of your sources before posting. STAY ON TOPIC!

    It was a rhetorical, I knew the answer…. As BKR noted above, it is, and has been for a long time, a rule for the tweets thread - no extended discussions. Use the thread to moan (about the Tweets, United's targets, other teams' targets compared to United's, moaners, etc.). Post off-topic...
  5. Transfer Tweets - Manchester United - 2022/23 | Follow the OP rules and check the quality of your sources before posting. STAY ON TOPIC!

    So glad that all the other transfer tweets got split off the United ones so we have yet another thread littered with posters showing how clever they are by letting everyone know they think everything about this club sucks. The one thread I come to for a little news and hopefully some positivity...
  6. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Exactly my point. Haaland will most likely be gone in the summer and then it is his turn to shine. If his agent is simply trying to get him a loan spell until that time I totally understand that, I took it as a threat to play him now or he would look for another team (I did not dig further than...
  7. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Kid just turned 17, absolutely no patience in the world of football anymore.
  8. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    Agreed, but we can't just stop trying to think of ways to combat racism because we are worried some rich white dude is going to get pissed off or lose money. In fact, do that in enough different ways, and maybe that is when things will really start to change. I am curious, in your scenario...
  9. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    So it is up to him when it comes to participation but not up to me in what regard I can hold him in? I do think the "walking off the pitch" idea is solid though. Frankly, should be SOP. End a couple games after 20 minutes because of some loudmouth racists and see how the crowd reacts to them...
  10. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    If you are truly racist these acts will most likely not change your mind. However, it's not just the confirmed racist that this is targeted at. In my mind it is to hopefully influence them (slight chance) but is targeted towards the future racists in particular (much better chance). So, this...
  11. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    I said this wasn't the best example to use, a trainload of drunk idiots. To answer your question, no I would not have stepped into that fray. But, I would have looked for an exit, said my piece and maybe I could have switched their focus and given the guy a safe(r) exit. I am pretty sure I could...
  12. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    Oh, can I change my post to Moby to say what Bobski posted? Close to the same thing but he put it out there so much better than I did.
  13. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    I think we are fighting from the same side here so I am not trying to pick a fight with you (and this isn't the best example / a trainload of drunk idiots), but people who ignore racism that is happening right in front of them are damn near as guilty as the ones doing it.
  14. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    Who is worse? The jackwads that won't let the guy one the train or everyone standing around and watching it happen? I think that bugs me more when seeing this kind of video, often no one comes to help and either walk away or act like they are not seeing anything worthy of getting involved with.
  15. Marcos Alonso to stop taking the knee

    It often seems that the ones saying these protests, and others like them have run their course and things aren't all better yet tend to come from mostly rich white guys. The good news is that rich white guys never have a hidden agenda. I want a quick fix for this racism thing. If you don't...
