    Lol

    No arguments here. You threw James in the discussion when the point has been that every club Cristiano has gone to after leaving us got worse with him. That is an un refutable point. The game is done. James has been irrelevant in the world of football for a while now and is several levels below Cristiano as a player and as a professional athlete. Not really the best example to use lol

    I’m just throwing shade at Hazard for extra gravy

    Actually what’s unrefutable is the point that one person doesn’t make the team worse, he can, however, make them better as judged by personal goal contributions to the team goals and assists statistics and all such stats and his performances prove beyond any doubt that he’s been doing excellent everywhere he goes cause he still has got it at 37. So your argument of Bayern signing him and then somehow losing the league is baseless and laughable as they’ve been doing brilliant in all other departments (outside an attacker’s jurisdiction) as well.

    Actually one player can make the team worse.

    Eg when Hazard replaced Ronaldo he made the team worse.

    Unless you’d like to argue that Ronaldo leaving made the team better…

    We had Mariano wearing no 7 before him lol

    and no, Hazard was pretty bad but he didn’t drag the team down. The other players were still performing to their max which didn’t happen with Ronaldo’s mates at United

    Will be very weird if I have to buy a Messi Miami shirt :confused:

    But i'll believe it when I see it. Beckham announced the franchise back in 2014 and it didn't start playing until 2020. Oh, and they play in Fort Lauderdale in Broward County, not even in Miami Dade. They are still in the process of trying to get permits to build a stadium in Miami.

    The best player they have gotten in this club's history is the likes of Higuain and Yedlin. The ownership group has been disappointing, to say the least.

    But one can hope. Maybe a new horizon is coming for this franchise.

    What is the name of the journalist?

    One of my main issues with society is no accountability. When you are wrong admit it. People would rather create strawman and evade than to admit they were wrong.

    Why isn't this journalist being held accountable? Why aren't other journalist and media's holding people like this accountable?

    This is why we have the convoluted situation of life we have now. Literally no integrity

    Agree but as you know accountability in general is questionable in lots of fields including journalism current day. That said Florentino was thinking ahead and while the execution could have used some work the concept made sense. Like other visionary type concepts, many/most will laugh at them then later be all over it. Lots of examples of that happening in the past.

    There’s many occupations where accountability is little to non existent but the profession of journalism really does sit atop of the shit pile. It annoys me that these people make money for it too. While others are working so hard to earn a living.

    Entire Juventus board including president Andrea Agnelli resigns

    Italian club has been under investigation

    Vice-president Pavel Nedved among resignations

    It comes after Juventus’s financial statements underwent scrutiny by prosecutors and Italian market regulator Consob in recent months for alleged false accounting and market manipulation. The company has denied any wrongdoing.

    Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, who is also stepping down, were among those under investigation. The Serie A club finished fourth in the league last season and made a €254.3m (£220m) loss - a record in Italy.

    Napoli board was/is in jail because of similar issues, overvaluing transfers and making up false numbers.

    Usually when one club goes down using a cheat code, they're not the only ones doing it.

    Remember when the emails leaked and Florentino had calls from Barnett and Mendes to do the tax trick Messi was using and he was furious and said something along the lines of "these guys are trying to put us in jail".

    The funny thing is, this world cup is actually more successful than the ones before.

    Fifa is going to earn over a billion more than last time during this 4 year circle, so when the donations to all those small federations go out for development and structure deals, a few big federations not supporting Infantino means absolutely ZERO.

    Even in the UK, despite the armband controversy, viewership is booming.

    I know Agnelli & Juve have been under investigation for quite some time now, so it's probably unrelated.

    But I was wondering whether Liverpool and Man United both being put on sale in such a short time has anything to do with the Super League ruling expected next month? It would make no sense for them to sell if the Super League was still alive and there was still a real possibility of being freed from the shackles of UEFA and making a huge increase in revenue.

    I'm no expert but putting the clubs on sale tells me that they see the Super League as a dead project that won't come to fruition any time soon. Or am I missing something?

    The idea is the teams are starting to cost more to operate than they generate.

    Yeah but if the Super League was still feasible by 24/25 like they say, wouldn't it have been better to wait it out for 2 more years until they start generating more money?

    The protest the football team doesn't care about is actually this one:

    https://www.reuters.com/world/europ...emanding-solidarity-energy-relief-2022-10-22/

    In the real world nobody cares if a poor soul fell off a construction site. So it doesn't surprise me that public protest became private pleading.

    The German media are insulted at the phrasing used in the press release.

    The Superleague doesn't generate more money by being more valuable within itself, it generates more by draining all interest from competing federations and tournaments and leaving the teams out to dry financially.

    Must be 200 ME nett. Wonder how Ron fans here who claimed he can still play for a top CL team will twist this.

    I was waiting to see who all these genuine CL contenders were that could afford his salary and were lining up to acquire his services whilst he was supposedly being held hostage by Manure, a bidding war even, until it's all official let's see how this pans out
