“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro [snip] because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”—
Cliven Bundy, human-shaped piece of shit.
This thief and welfare queen just went full racist. I like the “they put their men in jail” line. Yes, black people put themselves in jail without any help from institutional racism. And this slave-era “family life” white racists refer to is just the fucking height of evil absurdity.
The saddest, and most maddening, part is that there are people that agree with this walking shitstain and they are employed by large media outlets that portray Bundy as a “patriot” and “hero”.
a footballer i’d love to get drunk with- Neven Subotic, Bastian Schweinsteiger+Thomas Müller
my top 5 footballers- This is the worst question! I don’t know how people answer it. Lionel Messi, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Carles Puyol, Thomas Müller, Marco Reus, Ilkay Gündogan, Mats Hummels, Miroslav Klose. I don’t know what top 5 means. I don’t think top 5 applies to me. I left out Kuba, and Dani. My heart hurts right now.
I met Mukesh Bhatt today and had a conversation with him. It’s not everyday I meet my favorite movie producer. I also met Shankar Mahadevan, again not everyday I meet one of my favorite music directors. Didn’t technically meet Sonakshi but at least I saw her. She is pretty.
I just read you reply, i'm the girl with the merriage issue, thanks a lot for helping your story really is touching, i also asked myself again & again why should i afraid.. Anyways, lets talk about the transfer rumour, i read somewhere that man united will bring marco reus & cesc fabregas to the club, and they also will bring cavani to replace van persie, how do you feel about that? I'm not a united fan but feel really sorry for moyes, he's trying really hard isnt he?-__-
Let’s talk transfers!
Marco Reus - I don’t think so. Man Utd is not in a better position than Dortmund competition wise. I know I said similar things before about Mario when there were Arsenal rumors, and then Mesut went to Arsenal. And RM is obviously in a better position than Arsenal and Mesut is a much bigger star than Mario, but this is different. Marco is not mistreated in Dortmund. Infact he is the star of that team. Unless he has a sudden love for money he has no reason to go to Man Utd. Also I am pretty sure Marco likes Arsenal out of all EPL teams. That is the team he likes to watch. Which might not matter. Players like one team but then end up in their rival teams all the time. I don’t think Marco is going.
Cesc Fabregas- No. He worked too hard to come to barcelona, Xavi is old, Cesc is very much a part of the team…he is not going. But if I felt Marco might not want to go to Man Utd because he likes to watch Arsenal then hell no Cesc is not going to Man Utd because this boy is completely in love with Arsenal. He is a Gunner!
Cavani- I really don’t know. You can’t buy one of the best players of the world from PSG so easily. I don’t know if PSG would even sell, and if they do, it is going to be an outrageous transfer fee.
I don’t feel sorry for Moyes. I feel bad for Man Utd, but not him.
“Before Italy games, Daniele De Rossi would hide under Rino’s bed and wait. He’d be there for anything up to half an hour. Gattuso would come in, brush his teeth, stick on his leopard-print pyjamas, get into bed, take out a book and look at the pictures. Just as he was about to fall asleep, Daniele would reach up from under the bed and grab his sides, while I’d burst out of the wardrobe like the worst kind of lover, making horrendous noises. Rino took it really well, despite risking a massive heart attack. First he’d beat up Daniele and then he’d do the same to me. Just to prove he was even handed.”—Pirlo in his autobiography; I seriously cannot even anymore with these tonti :D :D Pirlossi playing pranks on Gattuso, I MEAN HOW HILARIOUS IS THAT?! (via juvetiamo1897)
Fatima, do you think that it's ok to like football yet not completely understand it? I love it but I can't seem to get it the way you or others do.. suggesting tactical changes and all. I do try and I don't want to be a labelled a bandwagoner or whatever. I want to be taken seriously. Any advice?
Hi lovely anon. This is the way I see it, do you have to understand the notes of a music to love a song? Do you have to understand things such as beat, meter, ballade, elision to love a poem? Do you need to understand the technique used in a painting to connect with the painting and love it? Sure it would probably make the experience even more amazing if you could point out the work that went into it. But to fall in love, I don’t think you need to completely understand it.
Don’t worry about being labeled. People want to label you so they can make themselves feel more special. Just take everything at your own pace :)
I was just walking around Camp Nou in google maps today and I realized that there are quite a few sports fields on Av de Xile. Does ALL of that belong to Barcelona? If you have, can you show us how much FCB actually owns in that area?
For GK, I want Ter Stegen. Of course I am biased toward him. But I also think he has the flair which would make him feel right at home amongst our technically gifted squad. Though he may be young and may not have the experience of playing in big time competitions regularly such as the champions league, he has incredible reflexes. In a few years, I believe that ter stegen’s experience will make up for his whatever qualities he may be lacking in now. He has a tendency to come off his line very easily, but with time I think his judgment will make him a more effective keeper and he won’t concede the few goals he does by rushing too early and leaving the goal open. In my opinion he is just the right mix between acrobatic, strong and he punches the ball away rather than trying to collect it in dangerous situations. He has a good long pass and it would give Barcelona a new avenue of building up play.
For defenders it is really hard. I want Barcelona to find hidden gems instead of going with overhyped players. But hidden gems often mean they are hidden and most people have not noticed them.
Like young Dória. I know nothing about him. Who is he? …but he does seem to be really good at aerial challenges and honestly his style of defending is a nod to classical defending. You know, getting the ball away. I haven’t seen any dazzling tricks or any risky moves. While this doesn’t fit barcelona’s style of play, beggars can’t be choosers.
Danilo Luiz Da Silva seems okay to me as well. Not sure if we need him though.
Mattia De Sciglio is very good player. Unlike Montoya, he can cross the ball and would provide Barcelona with some width. Now, Barcelona doesn’t exactly do crossing since there’s no dynamic header up front but still, I believe the way to go is to expand ways of play. Plus, he’s fast and would be able to better close down the speed demons.
Ranocchia is a good defender who is not only good at aerial duels but also good at tackling and intercepting passes. Would make a good fit for Barcelona as he likes to dribble and is able to thread in good passes.
I tried not to mention players from any team I would hate to rob. So I feel a little guilty taking Sakho's name. Liverpool needs to give him a pay raise. This guy is a great defender in my opinion. Barcelona would do well to finally get another true defender.
I like Ander Herrera. He seems to be a good midfielder who really is eager to help out defensively. He also has a bit of physicality in his style of play which we would benefit from when it comes to holding the ball. On the other hand, his passing seems not up to the quality which Barcelona are at now. But we are Barcelona. Most players are not upto our level when it comes to passing. Good thing is you can always improve!
Okay so I know we don’t need another forward but Heung min Son! He has yet to reach his potential. I truly believe we could be looking at another Henry or Eto in the making. Not only can he dribble and outrun defenders, he can pass and I dare to say his placement when it comes to finishing is in the top 3 in the world right now. He is beautiful! There are few other plays I like…can’t think of them on top of my head. Miralem Pjanic is another player I would love to have. I think he is great! Not sure if we need him but I would love to have him.
Now the hard part…. I am little cold-hearted when it comes to giving players away. I love Dani so, so much but it is okay if Barcelona wants to sell him and finds a better replacement. Dani is still good, just not as great as before. I think Masch needs to go. He has provided us with a false sense of security for too long. I think if we didn’t have him we might’ve purchased a CB. He has saved our ass plenty of times. But that doesn’t change the fact that he is not a cb, and it makes us weak. Song, I am not sure about. We don’t really need him. But he is a decent back up for Busquets. Busquets definitely needs a backup. Some people want Song sold and Masch to be back up for Busquets. Masche could be a starter in another team. We tried it once and we didn’t like it.
Either Tello needs to go Pedro needs to go In my opinion.
I love all of these men though :( so it hurts. Dani is precious to me. if he leaves I will have a hole in my heart. I change my mind. We keep Dani because I would be too sad to see him go. Not ready yet.
Now…My opinion literally means nothing because Barcelona will not do any of these things. So this is more of a wishlist!
Do you still open with the terrible thing about myself stuff? I'm an 18 year old muslim girl, and a terrible thing about myself is i dont really believe in merriage, i've seen a lot of people get divorce, my parents is still together, but they live seperately more than 15.000km from each other since i was 10.
