    We always argued whether it was Spanish or Licorice...

    Anyway, it's Spanish.

    Are we all gonna pretend to be disgusted by this or what?

    Happy, this is where you come in. You're utterly disgusted right? He's 'odious' isn't he?

    I think people are overegging this. If the language is such a big deal for him then we shouldn't have signed him when we had a dearth of Spanish speakers at the club. Also, Tevez famously didn't speak a word of English or Italian but he did alright.

    Football is an international language. So is English, fortunately.

    As an aside.
    Shakespeare invented over 1700 words, so a fair bit wasn't strictly English. I struggle to believe too many people spoke in the same style he wrote. Plus, all his plays should be read in his Brummy accent.

    Maybe the Spanish over here do but I worked in an engineering office in Madrid in the 80's and was amazed that NOBODY spoke a word of English (or maybe they just didn't want to speak to me :) )

    How many monkeys is enough?

    An infinite amount of monkeys with an infinite amount of typewriters, given an infinite amount of time could, obviously.

    I think there has been issues between Abel and MP, but I am sure MS probably able to communicate directly with Abel, as well as a fresh coaching situation can only be a benefit to get the best out of him.

    Not if each infinite monkey just pressed one key an infinite amount of times.

    It'd only need one one of them to be infinite.

    As long as you ignore Dutch's additional complications anyway.

    And they'd replicate it an infinite number of times.


    I don't know why but I just get the idea that Dutch is deliberately trying to be awkward.

    People who try to spoil thought experiments are real Buzz Killingtons in my opinion.


    I'm a little bit upset.

    Mourinho on Rojo's tackle/assault on Zaha - "He’s a clean player, aggressive. His nature, Argentinian."

    Another racist. <doh>
