This is a very principled and admirable argument you are putting forward Michail Antonio but you do realise that if this had been adopted or was adopted and you remained under contract with your current employers, you would be playing your football in a few leagues lower down the pyramid than the Vanerama National League.
I've just been on the Kumb website to see what they made of our performance last night and they have come out with some absolute gems of insightful and intelligent punditry and so called wit, here are just a few of them :
1. Spurs v Dortmund is the equivalent of Bournemouth v Brighton?
2. Fellow Poster referring to 1 above, you're being generous, I thought Spurs were the Champions League equivalent of Hemel Hempstead.
3. Spurs aren't that great and always seem to get the rub of the green, just enough to nick a win.
4. And to think not that long ago we were on a par with them, now they are streets ahead of us.
My response to 1 above - If that's the case, what's the equivalent of the Uefa Cup qualifying tie known as Spammers v Astra Giurgiu from Roumnia?
My response to 2 above - If we are the Champions League equivalent of Hemel Hempstead, what are the Spammers the Champions League equivalent of? Oh I forgot, they've never been anywhere near that competition.
My response to 3 above - since when has a 3-0 win ever been described as 'just about nicking it'? Against the best team in the Bundesliga currently and they are also Champions League finalists?
My response to 4 above - When in recent times have the Spammers been consistently 'on a par with us'? I would like the Spammers who frequently claim we're hated by many other fans because 'we think we are better than we are' to explain that one.....
And to think that they think we are deluded. Are they strangers to mirrors? Maybe they should take a good look in a big one....
"Spurs are annoyingly consistent at the moment. To think, not that long ago we were on a par with them, now they are streets ahead sadly"
How long ago are you referring to? Certainly not in the last decade!
"Spurs v Dortmund is the CL equivalent of Bournemouth v Brighton. "
What are you on mate?
"as I said, there's Mr. Poch after spending nowt, got his team 5 points behind every redtop and meedja outlets darling mischievous Scallies AND going into a knock out round after beating the Bundesliga's top team 3-0
he's a very good manager I don't care what anyone says about him not winning shyte.
spent less than most of his peers and his team is in Europe 3 consecutive seasons (don't think they have done that before or if they have, then for a long time) but everyone is jerking off over the toothy Kraut.
There's a massive difference between what you're saying and his situation. It's one thing if you've lived until you're 30 then move to Canada, in that instance I would never consider myself Canadian either, but if you were born in one place but then as a 2 year old and then moved to Canada and lived there for 20 years then IMO that would make you more Canadian than anything because all of your memorable lifetime would've been spent in Canada so you'd feel more Canadian than if you moved there as an adult.
