  2. Looks like you and Teso both have jobs as publicity agents for their perspective clubs. I don't know about anyone else but I have no interest in seeing jingolistic press accounts from football clubs reposted here. I am more interested in reading your opinion about football, even if I disagree with it.

  3. Step 1: Be owned by a state. Step 2: Be sponsored by an organisation also owned by that state. Step 3: Get that state to give itself its own money by funneling money from the sponsoring organisation to the club. Step 4: Pretend this is legitimate income.

  10. October 2017 Crystal Palace were beaten by Manchester City in a game where quality showed in the second half. Crystal Palace did very well to hold Manchester City to 0-0 up until half time but it took only 15 seconds for Sergio Aguero to get past the Palace defence in the second half. Raheem Sterling then scored a second as he pounced on a loose ball in the second half. Fernandinho then ended proceedings with a 25 yard free kick that went straight in to the top corner in injury time. One change was made for this game as Martin Kelly replaced an injured James Tomkins. No players were particularly impressive. Crystal Palace and Newcastle United split the spoils in what was an emotional game of football. It was an even match in the first half but Newcastle United found themselves ahead when Merino scored a strike from 20 yards. They gained a second when Christian Atsu cut ahead of Sakho and pounced on a Matt Ritchie rebound. A tactic change then paid off for Palace as Sako replaced Benteke and Townsend went up front. It immediatly paid off as Townsend slotted past Elliot after meeting a Cabaye through ball. Palace found themselves equal long after they began playing there best football all season. A looping cross from Bakary Sako found Wilfried Zaha near the back post who connected with a volley. Palace then bombarded the Newcastle United goal with several chances and got their just reward as a 'ping-pong' scenario with the ball in the penalty area was eventually converted by Andros Townsend. But it wasn't to be, as late in to the game Mohammed Diame found himself free from Martin Kelly in the penalty area and blasted a volley in to the top corner from 12 yards in the 97th minute. Crystal Palace took another point in a game similar to the last. Jermaine Defoe opened proceedings in n even game by getting ahead of Sakho and guiding an Andrew Surman shot in to the net. Bournemouth then scored a second when Nathan Ake scored a stunning swerving shot from about 25 yards out. But then Palace bought Bakary Sako on - this time for Andros Townsend - and Palace went on once again to play some real great creative football. Wilfried Zaha, who was disapointing in both games up until the hour mark, scored again as he converted a Bakary Sako cross. Palace then went on to grab a point late on after some very intense pressure where Reuben Loftus-Cheek was able to fire a shot in to the top corner from just inside the penalty area. End Of October Table Player Of The Month: Bakary Sako - Despite not starting a game the player has been influential from the bench in both of his appearances. Previous Winners: August - Joel Ward September - Christian Benteke

  11. Neither United fans or City fans can accuse each other of spending, as both clubs spend a ridiculous amount(as other big clubs do, as it's what football is about now), so what it all comes down to is who is the better team on the pitch and that is City by a margin. They play much better football, have better players and a better manager.

  12. Just watched the pilot episode of Damnation, a new series depicting the rising farmer and labor movement against unfettered capitalism during the Great Depression in some small Iowa town. Looks interesting so far, it's definitely inspired by Deadwood a lot. @Viva la FCB you might want to take a look, it's sort of a "pseudo western".

  21. Some of the best books on these things about the Spanish Civil War or Franco have been written by foreigners because they tend to be more objective and less ideologically driven by it all. Remember that everyone in Spain was affected in some way or another by either the Civil War and or living in Franco's dictatorship which lasted over 40 years. So it's to understand that a Spaniard will have some sort of swaying fixture set in their mind when writing about these things... All the same, there are some neutral and rather objective books written by Spaniards with accounts from family members that lived through the period. It's like when I recount the stories my father or my grandparents told about it all... On my mum's side my granddad lost an eye in the affair while on my dad's side my grandfather had to leave Spain for Cuba. Anyway... Here's the books I think are as objective as possible. Maybe Kowabunga has a more extensive knowledge on this and can help you more mate Paul Preston's stuff is top notch in my opinion. La Guerra Civil Española (Paul Preston) Franco 'Debate' (Paul Preston) Los Mítos De La Guerra Civil (Pío Moa) Una Historia De La Guerra Civil Que No Le Va A Gustar A Nadie (Eslava Galán) 40 Años Con Franco (Julián Casanova) The fifth option by Julián Casanova I've given you tells you how censorship and the closure Franco forced Spain into affected things and is another important outlook on Spanish society and why it is how it is today. Each one of those books will offer you a different view and how it affected society. They're my favourites although I can't even begin to tell you how much I've read up on the stuff since I was a teenager.

  22. THIS is exactly what I'm talking about Nudge. This was the essence of my original post because even though on the most and large scale we don't have that kind of poverty here at all, we do have the issues to which I was pointing at which is that people HAVE to own an iPhone or brandname clothes that cost quite a lot of money, much more than they can afford. In many cases a lot of these people are on government benefits. I know of one young lady (the sister of the wife of a friend of mine) that's living in a council flat paid for by the tax payer and every other benefit she's on that I have no idea about and she spends £300 every 3 months on hair extensions at the hairdresser... All that and she kits herself out on brandname clothing. Her daughter is financed by my mate in terms of proper food because otherwise she'll feed her processed microwave food or tinned shit.

  23. I never used to buy brandname clothes until I moved to a country where it's manufactured in local sweatshops and sold for a tiny fraction of price they charge the fools in the West
