That's easily remedied. The accelerator is the skinny pedal on the right.. push down on it.

You have a talking car? What did you ask to get that answer? "What's the average IQ of an Australian"?

O h I think you'll find that in 3 months all those people who thought Luis Suarez was the victim of some Bilderberg-sized conspiracy will be violently fingering him (Just picture that for a minute - his horse-like teeth trembling. I believe that the RAWK crowd would call him a HILF on those grounds) as the evil **** who unfairly punished the most pious, abused football club on earth. His hero-like mantle is about to get shit on from a great height.

Good player though. When he isn't flailing about or trying to maim people.

You appear to be suggesting that football fans can be fickle. Surely not.

He is a good player when on form. I'm conflicted beyond belief, I want the 30 goals a season but not the bad press (self inflicted as it may be).

Arsenal 58%

How long can a club survive if it's sugar daddy gets bored. I would say at 87% Man City would be no more if the cash cow pulled out.
sory turnover how is that relevant?

It's basic math, but obviously a city fan could have a problem with that.

Very good. Unfortunately that was the temperature...the car does talk but I'd say 80% I the voice commands require you to not be moving, rendering the whole thin utterly ****ing pointless. Americans.

Ummmmm, it's obviously entirely relevant.

If Crewe's salary bill was 500m, then everyone would be astounded. But not if it's Saudi City - because they are more likely to be able to afford it. Just because a team is in the PL, doesn't make it ok to spend the same on salaries - big clubs (United, Chelsea etc) would therefore be much higher than small clubs (City, Liverpool etc) because wages as a % of turnover is the key metric.

Even the thick cnuts at FIFA and UEFA have worked that out - hence the fair play rules. Shame you are one step behind. Franny Lee should lend you some bog roll.

And while we're at it, Einstein, if you are going to be a grammar Nazi, have the good grace to spell and punctuation correctly yourself.

Your first sentence is barely in English, and your second would be almost entirely crossed out in red pen if I were a primary school teacher.
