  1. Why not Australia? At least it works with the Mad Max aesthetic
  2. So a game whose aesthetic and ethos is entirely inspired by 1950s Americana and Cold War redscare is modded to London?

    The from what I understand the numbers usually suggest that Democrats typically receive a larger number of votes but Republicans win more constituencies, so for Democrats to win it has to be an overwhelming majority to make up for their weakness in lower population density constituencies. Seven of the past eight popular votes were won by the Democrats, but Republicans won three of those elections. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1035521/popular-votes-republican-democratic-parties-since-1828/

    It’s more than that, Chiefs winning means Kelce wins (Mr Vaccine according to Aaron Rodgers), which means Swift wins, and Swift wants people to vote, and when people vote en masse Republicans lose.
  5. I think that’s exactly the feeling people have when their teams are bought up!
  6. I’d say that doing better isn’t what it’s about, though is it? I remember you often speak fondly about the Kinkladze years, they had a relegation when he played, didn’t they? Girona were even promoted before the Citygroup bought them, clubs should be owned by fans not become chess pieces for a multinational conglomerate funded with blood oil. Man City was founded as a charity to help disenfranchised men on the streets of Manchester, now what is it? A brand? If it was only about success why do fans keep going to clubs all the way down the ladder? Emiliano Zapata said ‘it’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees’.
  7. It’s a terrible thing. Just use your imagination, what if the opposite had happened and all City existed for was to hold players for a foreign team
  8. It’s literally primary school behaviour.

    Tap Water

It just means the water has various salts and sulphurs.

    Tap Water

    Europeans have their drinking water held at ransom by Perrier and Pellegrino. They can't get safe water to their people but those companies can ship natural spring water world wide. I guess I was lucky to grow up with water tapped from the world's largest underground reservoir.
  11. I think it is the rule but football is the only sport in the world (that I've watched) that the referees and officials don't follows the rules to the T and allows for massive interpretation of. There are rules that are openly ignored by players and referees, like the goalie allotted time of holding onto the ball. Sure controversial incidents happen in all sports, that's inevitable but blatant ignorance or open misinterpretation is something else.
  12. A libertarian would be okay with grooming young players, wouldn’t they @Dr. Gonzo

    jabroni marks in this thread don’t know a shoot from a work and get shoot-worked into a shoot seethe
  14. The idea is a fine one, the application of it will not be. All it will do is create periods of ultra defensive football till a player is out of the bin. This isn’t rugby, or hockey where these rules do work.

    Chiefs, all the right wingers want the 49ers to win, which is largely ironic in itself.
  17. Depends. At home, IDGAF I’ll take a piss sitting down, less collateral damage and spillage. If I’m out and about I’ll never sit down,. Best of both worlds

    NFL

    I will but as much as I like the NFL I can’t stand the spectacle of the superbowl
  19. Is it a reflection of the gulf in English football between those that compete for trophies and those that don’t? Liverpool are amazing and win a lot of games but Klopp is still fourth in total honours. Thirteen less than Paisley!

    @Beelzebubdont worry mate, he means ‘Position Of Sale’
  21. He is talking about Australia and New Zealand
  22. Why does Newcastle even exist at this point?
  23. I was really confused because I thought you were talking about a Japanese movie named Perfect Days
