    Will be a hoot to watch when he loses his s..t, and tackles Messi for old time's sake...

    Thanks for the link, just read it. Author seems to be enamored by his own prose. Alas he's no Evelin Waugh. Still, the glaring inconsistencies sprinkled across the text are too hard to resist pointing out. For instance: Now it has emerged that even with his entire wage off the books, Barcelona would still have been unable to register him under La Liga rules. The real lesson of Messi’s departure is of the ultimate powerlessness of the elite footballer in the jaws of unregulated capitalism, a reminder that even the very greatest are not immune to the game’s more malign and rapacious forces. How can La Liga have rules, if it's unregulated? More often this struggle is fought and lost on a smaller scale: the armies of talented young players wasting their best years on the rosters of big clubs, dispatched on loan at the flick of a pen, stockpiled and mothballed like a bag of alfalfa in a warehouse. Mothballed...alfalfa?! The author is full of it [alfalfa by-product excreted by cows]. ----------------- Messi's net worth is estimated to be about half a billion dollars. The near-billionaire calls a press conference, cries in front of the whole world. He could've bought the club... His Barca salary for this year was 71 million euros....and he cried. He is, by far, the best footballer I've seen in my adult life. I was too young to realize how great Diego was. The absolute most bizarre aspect of this travesty for me is that his teammate will be fucking Ramos...you just couldn't make this stuff up.

    I look at it this way - he's got maybe 3 years to go, before we start seeing patently-obvious sings of decline. Why not play these remaining years for a symbolic salary or even for free in a club that have given him everything he deserved since he was a little boy, and for the enjoyment and love of the fans in the city that idolizes him? He's got to be worth hundreds of millions. Does he need more millions?! Paris will never, ever laud him like the people of Catalonia have. Have you been to Barcelona? You literally can't walk 100 paces without encountering some kind of effigy to the man.

    Messi is confirmed at PSG. Two year deal, worth...a lot. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/aug/10/lionel-messi-heading-to-paris-to-seal-psg-move-after-agreeing-two-year-contract He could've stayed at Barcelona, of course. Instead, he just cried, and left.

    Messi and Ramos…teammates. Fucking hell.

    I hope he doesn't end up in Man City or in the MLS. I despise Man City: the owners and top management are top shelf criminals to me. Where would you like to see Messi next?

    I watched the highlights of a few matches. Spain-Argentina was OK. France didn't look good at all. I'm hoping an African team or two go into the semi-finals and onwards. Women's soccer isn't my cup of tea.
  8. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    That would be even better. Love the sudden death.

    What a messed up way to lose….

    He did not refer to World War II. Citing your link, this is what he said: I think there are historic things that we should be proud of," Southgate said on Friday. "There are different aspects to it, but at heart I go back to the values that my parents gave me and treating people as you would want to be treated, and just respectful really. "But also people have tried to invade us and we've had the courage to hold that back. You can't hide that some of the energy in the stadium against Germany was because of that. I never mentioned that to the players, but I know that's part of what that story was. "We have so many things here that we should be proud of that we probably underestimate, that maybe if we were living in other countries we always see what's good about them, but we are always looking at the negatives of our own country. Yet we have got so much to be proud of. For an island our size, we've got an incredible influence on the world and we've got to keep that in a positive way." Vivere est militare. BTW, the cynical tackles didn't result in anyone leaving the pitch. I find it much better not to have the added time, but go to penalties right after the 90. This way, players battle all the way to the last seconds, and not roll the ball around for the 30 minutes preceding PKs, like they do in UEFA.

    It's coming, Rome!

    Why SHOULD you do any favors to anyone on the continent nearby? I think you've done enough in the two bloodiest wars in history. Your neighbors always ask for more, and say this wasn't enough. If soccer isn't a result of a state's politics...then I don't know. Look at the composition of the Dutch team - most of them are of african descent. Same for the French - africans and north africans. It's pleasant to see that they continue that trait into their politics. The Dutch and the French have had a great many black african and arab leaders, right? Then they all complain about English drunks in the stands. The Brazil-Argentina match yesterday was the one for the ages. You Europeans should watch how it ought to be done. Finally, Leo Messi was crowned the King. Viva Messi!
  13. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    My take on the European press: everyone hates England. Again.
  14. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    I didn't mean it as a slight. The English better take this Cup on Sunday; the next one may not happen in a while!
  15. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    IMHO, without Sterling and Kane England would be just a slightly above average team. Also, Playing all but one match at Wembley, with near unanimous fan support had played a major part only afforded to a host team.
