”I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out ...

French FA racism story

A small comfort for those who regularly despair about their own footballing governing bodies.

Over the last twelve months the French FA have repeatedly raised the bar for incompetence and idiocy.

And now this. ... l-race-row

Is it really cheating if everyone else is doing it though? Sorry, but yes it is. Two (or however many) wrongs don't make a right. (Not meaning to pick on you btw but I joined this thread late and anything I say will probably repeat what someone else has already said.) Also for what it's worth if Pa...

The problem I have is that the FA are just making it up as they go along. There are no clearly defined disciplinary procedures. Too right. I think my main problem with the ban is the hypocrisy of the hype over it. If it was such a grossly offensive incident as to warrant a two-game ban, why did Mat...

Honestly, I have no idea what the purpose of this topic is.

Rather than trying to be funny or provocative, perhaps it might do you better to wonder why I made that post in the first place. And why, despite my invitation to any admins/moderators, it hasn't been taken down yet.

That's all.

I thought someone would suggest this sooner or later. We do already have a ratings system for good and bad posts - I realise that only moderators can access it (muahahaha :twisted: ) but if you would like a post to be given recognition then you only need ask a moderator to do it for you.

The whole thing is peculiar - in the sense that it all seems to be happening at once, like a row of dominoes, and in the selective involvement of the UN/NATO/US etc. It would be interesting to know what provoked the uprising in Tunisia in the first place. If the reason for getting involved in Libya ...

Whilst I don't think that going down to ten men gave Arsenal any advantage, or resulted in a better performance from that point onwards, when Van Persie made the fateful shot that got him sent off, it was pretty much the first time he had touched the ball. Arsenal had zero shots for the entire game,...

I respect that view, but it depends what you define as getting weaker or stronger. I agree, the teams lower down in the league are now competing against the top teams for European places and so on. But as also mentioned, the top teams are a hell of a lot worse than they previously were. The Champio...

Firstly for the past 15 terms of overall squad depth and quality has gone, SAF hasnt really gone wrong. Sure Valencia is no Ronaldo but you dont need a Ronaldo. You need a player that can fit into what the manager wants, be consistent and most importantly gel with the squad. In most cases...

It seems like every time Bojan comes on I tell whoever I'm watching the game with that he is awesome. And then he will do nothing, making me look foolish.

So just for that I am going with Hernandez.

Ibrahimovic vs Berbatov.
