They love their Rooney over there.

Had a friend who was convinced that Rooney was better than Messi. Until 2011.
Then he started watching Messi HIGHLIGHTS and now claims he's the Greatest of all time. He's seen like 25 full Messi games. I had seen that many by 2007 :lol:

Same fanbase argued Rooney > Ronaldinho and that he deserved Ballon d'Or. They also took his side when Cristiano got him sent off and were saying that Cristiano was a fraud. Then they started calling Cristiano the best player on earth because he was theirs...

That shit keeps on happening in Paris. And in fucking Hotels, you would think it would be safe in a hotel.

I was there last year. Its a shithole. Pretty much Detroit of Europe.
Anyway, saw Donarumma is still going to the preseason tour with the team, so i guess he is fine.

Donnarumma being fine is...I don't know, man. Getting robbed like that will affect you. Also PSG is a hell he'll probably want to leave as soon as he becomes a free agent.

Just knew about this, interesting
Yeah it's quite big in some leagues but still not widely used across the top 3-4 leagues.

It can only go further.


Volleyball have a similar project going for years (volleybox) which is something like a LinkedIn version of the sport, but 3/4 of the profiles aren't managed by the players/staff/agents/managers themselves.

Your take?

Argentine, Messi had ALOT of favorable calls during the tournament and I also thought something was not right..
Anyhow, the WC is one of the biggest sportevents around and commercial/political interests can prevail over sport. For me one of the most obvious corrupt WC's was the one in Japan/South Korea. Think about some of the games S-Korea played. And let's not forget how Platini acknowledged they rigged the draw of the WC '98 in France so Brasil and France could meet each other in the final https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...ni-world-cup-1998-brazil-france-draw-trickery.
