  1. Haha thanks. I just realized that didn't link to the actual thing :)
  2. Have none of you seen the pic of Musonda training. I believe he is still getting his fitness up to scratch. https://twitter.com/sjstandardsport
  3. Nothing embarassing here... Bayern are clearly significantly more fit than us. I would guess that they are much more advanced in their preseason than us. Enjoy the game, enjoy the loss :)
  4. I don't agree with him and would have taken Morata over a 30 million cheaper Lukaku everyday. However, I believe his (Wallosh's) point was not to compare them (Morata and Sheva) but only to show that it can happen that Morata may find it hard (there are some precedents vs. none when a player was proven in the league). The flaw in that reasoning is that there are several instances of players failing while making a switch within the league - Torres, Benteke, Carroll immediately come to mind. I'm sure there are several others as well.
  5. I don't see how else the club could have reacted.
  6. Any reason is more complicated than "dislike any change to the status quo" which is quite a lazy conclusion :) That is however one of the factors no doubt!
  7. The 'hatred' or dislike for RBL in Germany is a little more complicated than you make it out to be. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/sep/08/why-rb-leipzig-has-become-the-most-hated-club-in-german-football
  8. Very stupid of him. Not racist but certainly discriminatory and insensitive. Hope he learns from this.
  9. This is so sad, they just don't deserve Cech! I hope he comes back as back up at the end of his career.
  10. Crazy... all words for sh*t in most south Indian languages are variations of 'kak'
  11. Birds use several cues to navigate long-distance, one of them being magnetic as dkw said, but none of them can be disrupted by WiFi. In any case, they mostly migrate pretty far up in the sky. Migratory patterns haven't perceptibly and significantly changed in the last 20 years, and no correlation with any disruption of this kind is apparent. But do read up, don't believe me! One big myth that has really gained popularity around the world in the last decade is that worldwide house sparrow declines were due to mobile phone towers. There is no evidence whatsoever but the myth continues. People, even in small rural villages, love to believe this. The hypothesis which has support is the simplest one; most modern buildings do not have safe nesting areas and food sources have decreased. The important thing is that until we find something to be true, it remains nothing more than a viable or not so viable hypothesis. The pigeon fanciers beliefs are nothing more than his speculative opinion unless he backs them up. Sorry :) I also feel that it is really important to look for scientific evidence (or any evidence at all) before believing something (however psychologically helpful it may seem in the short-term). The long-term consequences, financial in this case, can be quite severe. Can't wait for the season to start.
  12. I have avoided posting on any rumours thread as it frankly makes very unpleasant reading... I wonder whether the Emanolo, Marina and board critics wil admit (and realize) that they were talking complete nonsense. How can you blame someone without information, I still don't get it. In any case, really happy with this. So glad we didn't get Lukaku.
  13. I can't believe that people believe Messi will be ineffective in the PL! he will singlehandedly dismantle PL teams at 35... More than Messi's supposed failings, we have our own incredible defensive performances to thank for his drought against us. He has come extremely close on several occasions though, so there's a great element of chance involved in that statistic as well.
  14. So bored of "Championes, Championes, Ole! Ole! Ole!". It doesn't even have a nice tune. Why is it even so popular in England?
