Even if the kid's born and raised in another city (excluding Liverpool/London/Leeds)? What would be the harm in them supporting someone like Sunderland?

edit:

"Even though we're really tight at Barca, there are different groups. There are the Catalans, who are the captains, the home-grown players with the club in their blood," he is quoted as saying by Uefa.com.

"In Manchester, there was more of a hierarchy. The senior players were greatly respected, and it was taken for granted that the likes of Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes were in charge."

Of course there are groups of friends on the team, different that and suggesting everyone doesn't get on because of that :)

he also said his opinion was taken straight away when before it was certain players who were in charge, which makes the friends thing seem even less important..

Nothing against Sunderland, but supporting United goes back generations.

I once thought about what I'd do if I had a child with someone who was with someone else at the time of birth and the boyfriend was a heavyweight boxer who was a huge City/Liverpool fan....

I hate your unborn child.

I've solved this dilemma by promising myself that I'll never live in another Scottish city for any length of time.

What if they support Peterhead or Brechin City?

Calum1903 02-08-2011 03:46

This reminds me of the time my wee brother (who was about 4 at the time) claimed to like Rangers. He got a hiding from his brothers, and when he complained to our dad about it, he was told he'd be living in the shed if he didn't sort himself out.

He doesn't like football now. Partial win.

This 4-2-fantasia stuff always crack me up.

Btw where it started? It was Leo himself who coined the term?

Here in Brazil nobody uses this terminology. At least not while trying to look serious.

You're all forgetting that PSG's flair will be balanced out by this tower of partially-sighted strength.

I do genuinely loathe Peterhead. It started when I was up there watching my brother play and some bigger kids stole my ball. After that, they were the only under-14 team I know of that's been forced to move to a neutral venue due to crowd trouble. And despite that, their parents still spat at me and they still threw chairs at us in the dressing rooms. It's the type of place I imagine Stoke to be.

As for Brechin, they have a fucking hedge running along one side of their pitch.

Aberdeen are known as "The Dons", a name that has been in use since at least 1913. This comes from the word 'Don' meaning 'teacher', given Aberdeen's history as a university town. It may also be a reference to the River Don. Before the popular adoption of "The Dons", the team were variously known as "The Wasps" or "The Black and Golds"; both names a reference to the yellow and black striped shirts of the time.[54]

my highschool's nickname was 'the dons'

i feel so connected to you calum. We should cut our hands, and mail each other small viles of blood to make it official.

Milano is obviously the manager.

i would make calum a flying wingback just because of his disdain. I would instruct him to keep pushing and then yell at him when he's out of position.


he'd probably mutter under his breathe how terrible a manager i am

Sage 02-08-2011 05:30

I wouldnt put m84 as a manager, i'd make him the director of the club, persians know how to turn a dime into a dollar :lol:

4.2.3.1,

.................Berba
Gameiro.....Pastore.......Menez
........Sissoko.....Matuidi
...............Defense

Good thing they've got Gameiro, plays a lot like David Villa so i assume he will have a similar role of making runs in there and Pasto and Berba doing the stylish stuff. Could work with Hoarau on the bench [huge striker] and Erdingc can be sold, of course they've got Nene too but depth is good for their EL run.

EXCLUSIVE: Inter accept United's offer for Sneijder

Quote:

Wesley Sneijder WILL become a Manchester United player this week... if he accepts a restructured pay-deal to move to the Premier League.

The Dutch midfielder's club, Inter Milan, have paved the way for a £30million-plus transfer by accepting, in principle, a formal offer United made at the weekend.

They are ready to grant Sneijder permission to speak to officials from Old Trafford, and the Mirror understands those talks will take place later this week.

The only stumbling block to what would surely be world football's deal of the summer is the player's wage demands, given the tax-favourable status he enjoys while playing in Italy.

Sneijder doesn't want to take a pay-cut on a salary that would earn him the equivalent of almost £190,000 a week in the Premier League - which is way outside United's pay structure.

The English champions though, are prepared to talk about a sliding pay scale that will see a large basic wage topped up with generous bonuses as well as signing-on fees that will be spread over the length of the contract.

That would almost match his contract with Inter, and, given that United players can earn large sums through image rights - which are less effective at other European clubs - it would appear a compromise could be reached.

Both clubs were cagey about the situation yesterday, with Inter officials confirming there had been a formal bid from England, and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson suggesting the player had to think about his club's offer.

Ferguson held talks with United chief executive David Gill about the prospect of an improved salary package for Sneijder that would not break the club's wage structure, and there was optimism a deal could be struck.

The player's agent is expected to fly into London before the weekend, and United are hoping to have the Holland international training with the squad in time for the start of the Premier League season a week on Saturday.

Inter had considered a part exchange deal, with Dimitar Berbatov moving the other way, but while they haven't ruled that out completely they have indicated they would prefer the cash up front, with an option to negotiate on striker Berbatov separately.

Tax in England is at 50% whilst Italy is less than 40% I believe. I know it's less in Spain.
