    I don't get paid for my explanations here. I'm doing it purely from the goodness of my heart.

    What do you mean "might"?

    So far in this transfer season Madrid have signed Kroos(call it 30 million Euro with transfer, agent fee and bonus), James(80 million, bonus, fee and additional fee...
  4. Sticky: Re: 2014/2015 Football transfers thread.. Yeh it's that time again folks..

    I am not denying it, on the contrary. Not counting it as an asset was just a casual remark on how teams are valued on the market. It's a huge asset for Arsenal, even though I'd rather they lowered...

    It still has to be paid in the end, right? The difference is that Real's and Barcelona's bank debts are not bonds, but direct loans, which have to be repaid in a shorter period. While Arsenal for the...

    First of all, you need some context. AS is a pro-Madrid newspaper, but anti-Florentino Perez. :) It has to do with AS being owned by a rival conglomerate and Perez cutting the advertising.

    The last thing I want is to look like is a Real defender, but last season when they signed Bale, Isco, Illara and Carvajal, their net expenditure was around 65 million Euro due to selling Callejon,...

    Not that they'd have to have official status.
    Lots of time before the transfer season closes, but in all probability James would be purchased, because apparently Di Maria wants out. Similar stats...

    Premature, Treva. He was seen in Madrid to take a flight to Niza. :) Until MARCA announce it, it's not true(actually, if you look at their numerous headlines about David Villa, Suarez, Neymar,...
  10. Re: Does you think Hannibal could have won the second Punic war if he acted differently?

    Carthage reinforced Iberia, but only when the Romans already had a foothold there and had defeated the first Carthaginian army. Carthage should've filled the vacuum left by Hanibal's leaving, which...
  11. Re: Does you think Hannibal could have won the second Punic war if he acted differently?

    For me the real problem from Hanibal's PoV was that his war was mostly "private". Carthage did not help his expedition, Carthage mostly looked on until Scipio the Eldest and his brother gained...

    Why do you consider only the idea of sword-armed "crawlers" alone against a phalanx?

    The idea is that you have lighter-equipped soldiers who usually are the skirmishers and advanced guard of the...

    Southhampton's TV money contract is possibly greater than Atletico Madrid's entire budget. Athletic Bilbao reached Europa League final with its self-imposed rule of signing only players coming out...

    The problem is that 75m pounds is the reported official release clause of Suarez, and by most accounts Barcelona managed to knock quite a bit off it. Not that it isn't a scary amount, of course....

    Is it 78 million pounds?

    All Spanish sports newspapers(Including Real's Own AS and MARCA) call it 81 million Euro. Guillem Balague stated it was 81 million Euro. Goal.com states it is 88 million...

    Re: the law of 1978 and clubs "agreements"

    I may sound like I'm overhyping him, but Alexis is one lean, mean, short goal-scoring machine. No need to keep your fingers crossed. He will need some time adjusting, but he was born for direct kind...

    Nevermind that Neymar plays on the left, whereas Suarez best plays as a CF or wide right, and Messi's preferred position is enganche.
