Of course boys. I don't seem to recall any of those beaten sides having won 3 Champions Leagues in the last 4 years.

Nor do I recall either of them being unbeaten in the group stages for 5 years.

Do you think there teams are more expensively assembled than Reals? ;)

Real's debt is 250 mil, whilst Barca's is 298 mil so yes ;)

Utd's is 570 mil but they have been hit hard by dollar rise vs sterling due to Brexit

Quick question for your conquering heroes. When’s the last time they beat a top 6 side away from home?

Sigh. The :sneaky::( smilies clearly indicated irony. As South African’s would say (not “wou’d”) - dof doos.

In other news, when Memphis Depay is scoring against you, you have big problems. Unsworth might be the next managerial casualty.

Quickly scanning over the daily UK rags this morning The Sun front web page shows an article with the caption Browned Off 20,000 sign petition to have brown footy stadium signs changed. The accompanying picture shows a picture of a sign obviously taken in Liverpool as the sign show both clubs name on the sign.

So I click on the article intrigued as my 1st thought was Is this Dipper fans doing the usual outrage and we are victims campaign and especially as its The Sun writing the article. Let me guess they are outraged that because the signs are brown in colour that they see this as somehow indicating that the team is SHIT.

Actually the story is about the geometry of the balls depicted on the signs.
Matt Parker argues that it is mathematically impossible to construct a ball using just hexagons. His petition has over 20,000 signatures.

On the government website they write: "The Government considers the current football symbol has a clear meaning and is understood by the public.
"Changing the design to show accurate geometry is not appropriate in this context.

Prior to Citeh moving to the Council House didn't they just look for the tallest floodlights in the land to get to their ground?

Yeah, because with all the trivial issues going on today (people virtually starving in their own homes because the Universal Credit roll-out has a 3-month 'waiting' period when they receive nothing; hospital waiting lists now talking in terms of years, not months; school budgets slashed, blah, blah, blah...), the MOST important thing we need to spend money on is pulling out & replacing all the 'football signs' around the country because the ball on them is mis-shaped...... fk me, you (literally) couldn't make it up... :blink: :( :thumbdown:
