    I would say the prestige associated with national team football has faded over the years. Heroes of recent world cups are often defined by their contributions at the club level first and foremost as fans realize strong WC performances are usually a one-time spike in form.

    When you throw in that some quality players will never even have the chance to realistically bring glory to their country (Zlatan, Bale, Salah, Aubameyang) I think it's clear the average fan will value a strong club contributor over a national team contributor.

    Some players argue that the UEFA UCL is more important to them than the WC. I can't imagine any sort of competition even being compared to the WC in the 80s.

    Whoops, I don't know how this flew right over my head. Potentially a way too interesting thread for me to let it die.

    Sending this one back to ADR.

    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Itís never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Itís a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    Why the fuck do Intel pay 5 million to be on the inside? I've seen a celebration where the bottom half of a Barcelona shirt appears maybe once.

    With a good coach you can over achieve. Montella has shown to be a good coach so I think they'll over achieve and finish second though pound for pound they do not have the 2nd best squad.

    My mind has been blown by Fitzy and this bottle of rum. I'll be kind and say it's 99% Fitzy and 1% rum.

    I'm also after accidentally deleting all 1 of your Thanks on that post so sorry about that.

    Remember when barca started with the unicef ad and they were like it s only temporary for a good cause after that will go back to not having a sponsor?
    Fucking barca allways trying to act superior but in the end beeing the biggest whores of them all!
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?

    Yeah and they did it for free back then IIRC. Now they're getting 2M a year from an NGO Although fuck Unicef, they are as corrupt as they get.

    imagine giving money to unicef to be helping with charity and that money is being sent to Barcelona. What in the under fuck, how can that be allowed.

    Well, Unicef, as any other organisation, for or non-profit, needs advertising to drive revenues... ehm... donations up. If those two mills given to Barca are getting them 4M then it's a win-win.

    It says -2 mil. So as I understand it, they donate 2 millions a year and therefore get a better image as donators. Then it also drives donations of UNICEF by them having them on their shirt. So I don't think it's advertisement in that sense. It's more of an improvement of Barca's image.

    I seem to remember something about them donating when they first did it so I think you're right.

    As i understand it they are not giving them 2 mio on top of the ad they just give them the ad for free and it s valued at 2mio so it s a 2mio loss for barca.
