  1. Not sure about that. The only logical justification for including a team literally thousands of miles away on another continent would be to drive expansion. They certainly have been presented as saviours of the game in the Northern hemisphere by some posters on here, rightly or wrongly.
  2. I think I probably misread an earlier post.
  3. It's a very valid question. My worry would be that without the buzz, adulation, status etc of being the boss of the Wolfpack, why would he continue to invest?
  4. I'm not sure Jordan's off the field lifestyle merited a sizeable contract at Leeds.
  5. Ages ago people were talking about a few League clubs in Valencia? What's happened to them?
  6. I could have sworn Jamal Fakir played in that game or is my mind playing tricks on me?!
  7. He got a lot of stick when he left Liverpool, from England fans in particular which I always found a bit strange, but also in the media where he was sometimes potrayed as being money grabbing for leaving Liverpool. Even as a Liverpool fan I found this a bit harsh, but I didn't exactly want him to be a roaring success either. Even if some of the stuff he has done recently has been heavily promoted by his agent, he does seem to be turning into a fairly impressive bloke. He's no age at really and most of the twenty four year olds I know aren't brimming with maturity
  8. That's a better example but again you seem to reference the states all the time
  9. There is a degree of illiberalism amongst some people on the left but YK isn't coming up with any good examples.
  10. Thanks for that..but I listen to 6music primarily for the music you see?
  11. You're right..it was just a viewpoint I'd not really heard before..it's easy to say if you haven't been colonised..it came up in a conversation where I was saying a lot of people in this country are embarrassed by the British empire cos he was saying that people from Spain look down on latin Americans.
  12. I was speaking to someone from Panama the other day about this. He said many people in latin America wish they'd been colonised by England rather than Spain and that they look at countries like the states, oz etc a bit wistfully. He also said that if we hadn't done it another European country would have. It was about the only interesting thing he had to say for himswlf?
  13. I'm the opposite really, but I accept he wasn't everyone's cup of tea. There aren't many people I could listen to first thing in the morning but he was definitely one.
