Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

I think it's stupid to start the season again. It's going to be shit, matches in empty stadiums, players half fit, endless debate about whether it's safe, matches getting canceled or postponed because inevitably somebody will test positive. Why try to finish the season in a half-arsed way that's onl...

If we’re willing to pay pre-corona prices for him they’d be mad not to take it. It’s about survival now, and Dortmund will know that better than most having gone bust not so long ago.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Doesn’t bode well for signing Sancho though does it?

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

I’ve read that there are still a couple of hundred people at a minimum involved in a ‘ghost game’. The chances of doing that covid-free is zero. There’s no way they could pull it off if they actually did test everybody. Article in the Guardian about how United’s transfer kitty will be cut back and w...

Re: Coronavirus

My impression is that the WHO has done a good job. They're only a bunch of doctors and scientists, all they can do is analyse things, give advice, treat people when they're given permission to, and they can't get into arguments with national governments. Things would be very different if countries h...

Re: Coronavirus

Imagine trying to defund the WHO during the worst pandemic in modern history. This prick isn't satisfied getting in the way of saving Americans, now he wants to get in the way of saving anybody anywhere in the world.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Bit of talk that we're planning to exploit the financial uncertainty caused by covid to have a bit of a splurge this summer. Anyone buying that? I could maybe see it happening if the prices of players actually does drop a lot. Looking at what's happening, I could imagine that Italian clubs especial...

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

Don’t see us selling Pogba now, not for anything like the money we were looking for anyway. Shite like Sanchez are a going to be a curse in the new football reality. It’ll be interesting to see how City is set after this: price of oil is in the toilet, Abu Dhabi might not feel like spending fortunes...
