    This thread starts on an auspicious note.


    Arsenal secure win over Crystal Palace thanks to a late Aaron Ramsey Goal in extra time:

    I'll say it again,this guy is the best midfielder in the world today.With Modric a close second perhaps.Koscielny scored earlier to cancel out Hangeland's earlier goal.Yaya Sanogo was atrocious and was taken off with around half an hour to go.
    Arsenal for the title.

    Rooney scored a superb goal from a bicycle kick,in Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Swansea:


    [​IMG]


    Rooney performs season after season,scores beauty after beauty,is well on the way to become Manchester United's top goalscored of all time,yet the media try to sell him as some sort of a inconsitent,limited footballer who's luck to be at such a big club.They say that the England team would be better off without Rooney.And he shuts their mouth every time,yet they don't learn.And now the media is the same with Wilshere.


    Anyways,guess who was responsible for Swansea's winning goal:

    Ashley Young.....what a pathetic attempt at 'defending'.Bloody Pygmy can't even jump.

    His dashboard is so bad.The only shot,was about a mile wide,under absolutely no pressure.No completed pass looks more than five yards.Nothing of note anywhere close to the penalty area.

    the opening goal of the new season was scored by an asian player, ki, from swansea:

    [​IMG]

    his first goal for swansea, he waited a whole year to score:

    as you can see there is something written in chinese or some asian language on swansea's jersey, so that's not really a surprise :whistle:

    after lovren's transfer, will sakho get out of the starting 11?

    https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blog...ore-fear-skrtel-lovren-arrival-202249239.html

    today he won't start against southampton
    but i don't really care
    last season was a unique oportunity for liverpool, because they didn't play champions league, they focused really 100% on the league by losing early in cups, and all the other usual contenders were unusually weak
    and they bought sakho this precise season, a player who no longer played in PSG, for a lot of money
    what a dumb move
    it cost them the title
    in the past seasons they had a good defense

    Yes,Sakho will no longer be first choice,and he's France #1 CB.
    Now Manchester City have bought France's #4 CB.....it'll be fun,making those gifs!:biggrin:

    After 80 minutes, three goals in the Liverpool v Southampton match. All three scored by blacks. I've seen enough.

    All three goals had little to do with the blacks you speak of.We all know Jordan Henderson was really the only force behind the first goal,and Sterling's finish was rather poor.In fact,if anything its lack of quality surprised Fraser Forster.It was more stab,than placement.Credit where its due though,Sterling scored and that's all that matter,perhaps.


    Sturridge's brilliance for his goal has been covered here:



    And while I haven't yet seen Clyne's goal,this piece of commentary from a match report tells me who deserves the credit:



    I'm imagining a tap-in.


    So,Matra,cheer up.Trust blacks,with their inferior DNA to fail every single time.I know I do,with good reason,I must add.

    Chelsea is looking great so far today.... 10 whites and 1 mesitzo in Diego Costa starting!!!

    In addition, it looks like Burnley is playing with 11 white players as well.

    It was comical that Man United lost at home to Swansea in the first match of their new era.:icon_lol: Maybe they should sign Angel Di Maria. They said they would break the bank if necessary so what are they waiting for?

    I was watching it. Burnley scored first but it is all one way traffic now.

    Pretty much... Chelsea responded right away, and were up 3-1 in pretty short order. Burnley has looked a bit better to start the 2nd half.

    I looked up Burnley's starters, and they did indeed start 11 whites, with 9 Englishmen(!!), 1 Northern Irishman, and 1 Scott.

    That's great to hear. So Arsenal, Chelsea and Burnley are teams to support. Any others that are almost all-White?

    Here is the first breakdown of the season. I've got a lot on my plate these days so I can't guarantee such an analysis for every round but I'll certainly try my best to contribute as much as I can.

    As You all know, I generously count Bosnian Muslims as Whites in order to avoid creating too many categories (and to make my task a bit easier). This season, Arabs shall no longer be counted with "Others" but shall have their very own rubric because more and more of the bastards are filtering into the Premier League.

    The composition of my Peterborough United - who play in the third-tier League One - is just as bad as that of many a Premier League side. Tuesday's 1-2 home loss to Sheffield United saw them start six Whites (five of whom are Englishmen) and five blacks...

    Manchester United 1 Swansea City 2

    MAN. UNITED:

    Started: 7 Whites (2 Englishmen), 4 blacks
    Finished: 5 Whites (2 Englishmen), 4 blacks, 1 Albanian, 1 Arab

    SWANSEA:

    Finished: 5 Whites (1 Englishman, No Welshmen), 4 blacks, 1 Asian, 1 Amerindian

    Leicester City 2 Everton 2

    LEICESTER:

    Finished: 8 Whites (4 Englishmen), 3 blacks

    Queens Park Rangers 0 Hull City 1

    QPR:

    Started: 6 Whites (4 Englishmen), 5 blacks
    Finished: 4 Whites (4 Englishmen), 7 blacks

    West Bromwich Albion 2 Sunderland 2

    WEST BROM:

    Finished: 5 Whites (2 Englishmen), 5 blacks, 1 Argentine Jew

    Rebajlo (or any of the other soccer experts),
    It seems to me upon first glance that the BPL has gotten Whiter than last season. Do you recall what an average week was compared to the 65% Whites this year? It seems some clubs like Newcastle, Chelsea and Liverpool have gotten Whiter while most others seem about the same as last year (for good and bad). Also, Burnley and Leicester are call-up squads with positive compositions.

    Overall, I'm encouraged by what I see so far. Could the dominance of White footballers at the World Cup be responsible for some of the uptick?

    Freethinker, I believe EPL teams began to realize, somewhat belatedly, that they cannot compete in Europe if they fill their ranks with black physical players. Despite being by far the richest league in the UEFA region (according to some specialized sources, the average player worth in the EPL is 7.01M Euros, in Spain 5.56, in Germany 4.50, in Italy 4.15), their results in Europe lately have been dissapointing. Apart from the somewhat lucky Champion's League win by Chelsea 3 years ago, the Champion's League and Europa League have been dominated by Spanish and German clubs with overwhelmingly White teams. If their logic is to throw money on players, they are now beginning to throw money on players of quality, not quantity, meaning more White players.

    In his very first game,he conjures this(he is the #4,and slick finish by Schurrle too,mind you):

    The Kenny Dalglish teams were good,with Liverpool having only one (half?)black - Johnson - in the entire first team squad,for almost a whole year,memorably during the Suarez-Evra 'Negrito' saga.Since then,its all gone downhill,and Liverpool could well have five blacks in the 'first choice' eleven:

    Sakho,Johnson,Sterling,Sturridge,Balotelli.
    The 'Horrid misses by black attackers' thread will be kept very busy.

    Just as importantly they will dominate the prestigious upfront positions. If they do well, which I don't think they will, it will be catastrophic from a caste perspective.

    Like Porthos touched upon,the overwhelming number of 'Black Flops' to have graced the EPL in the last few seasons are an important factor.Of the maybe 200 or so blacks(with no discernible non-black ancestry) that have started a considerable number of games in the last 3 years,I think 20 wouldn't be classified as 'Black Flops'.

    And of those who perhaps have performed to a level befitting a white man,over a consistent period:

    Yaya Toure,Sterling,Sturridge,Evra,Distin,Lukaku,Sagna,Benteke,Bony.....that's it,not enough to even form a team.

    Also,after some well documented failures('Calamity James',Itandje) no EPL team owner/manager/scout has the courage to sign a black goalkeeper.Its been ages since I've seen one in the EPL,and I don't expect one to be first choice for a team for another decade.And no,Tim Howard doesn't count.I always find it funny whenever blacks claim Mulattoes and Quadroons as one of their own,and feast on all their glory.
