    I'd be curious to see how many black players from France are bought during the transfer window compared to other nations. I'd wager it's quite high. It seems like everyday I look, more and more of these "French" blacks come out of the wood-work.

    from a french point of view, it does look like the premier league is taking away a lot of the players

    the premier league is going to be totally unpredictable with so many teams adding a lot of new players, who knows how it's going to turn out?

    Some updates :

    Tottenham agree deal to sign Georges-Kevin Nkoudou from Marseille for 11m

    I guess the scouting department haven't learnt from Clinton Njie.Oh wait,Jew Daniel Levy makes all the transfers.

    Manchester City have bought Ruilli.

    A great move for both parties.

    Manchester City make official approach for West Ham starlet Reece Oxford

    Just ridiculous to offer 15m for a 16 year old Defensive Mid,considering that he's not even good enough for West Ham yet.But then he's the youngest player to have ever played in the PL,so I guess he must be a collectors item for the Jew and Arab owner for him money is just a number.

    Agreement between Barcelona and Hamburg for the transfer of Halilović. 5M transfer fee, 4-year contract, Barcelona have buy-back option.

    Munir El Haddadi renews with Barcelona until 2019

    Wow,so the prodigy goes and the marketing players stays(for now).No words for this really.

    according to french media, pogba's transfert is done, pogba is the most expensive player ever

    barcelona need to sign vietto because munir will be not good enough to be a substitute
    otherwise barcelona have bought gomes, a portuguese midfielder, excellent choice, they have so much depth at each postition now except the forwards
    it will be very hard to take the champions league away from them

    they are also set to get rid of the muslim flop arda turan, he may go to china or whatever

    their optimal starting 11 will be 9 whites + 2 mixed south americans (luis suarez and neymar, the best 2 non white players in the world maybe) in champions league or 8 whites + 3 mixed south americans (if you count bravo the chilean goalkeeper as mixed) in the spanish league
    but a lot of turnover can be expected all over the season
    at every position they have a very good white player or a catalan player as a second choice
    they could literaly start 2 different white teams that would make the best premier league club look like clowns
    if they don't start umtiti in some key matches next season is looking good for them

    Yes! I mentioned Dortmund were in talks with Goetze, and I'm glad to see it's now official. He will slot right back in with the starters (I believe). He was criminally underused at Bayern Munich, so I think this move will be good for Goetze; it will hopefully help him recover his form, and make Dortmund better in the process.

    Now Dortmund have signed Wolfsburg winger Andre Schurrle!! Dortmund will be potentially the most white-friendly club in the Champions' League next year. The only sure non-white starter is striker Aubamayeng at the moment. I hope they're able to upset Bayern Munich and win the Bundesliga next year. In addition to their established stars like Schurrle, Gotze and Reus, they'll have a lot of young players to watch for on team, like midfielders Julian Weigl and Christian Pulisic, fullback Raphael, midfielder Mikel Marino, and versatile defender Matthias Ginter.

    Yes,Dortmund now look dangerous and very white.The only bad thing about Dortmund is that now both their strikers are black,after they bought that Dembele kid from Rennes(for another exorbitant sum).Kagawa is there too,but I expect him to be pushed to the backseat by Gotze and Schurrle.

    In other news,Liverpool bought Wijnaldum from Newcastle for 25 million,after Newcastle only paid 15m for him a season before.And he predictably flopped,just like he did in the 2014WC(remember how he was the black Dutch midfielder who did the least on the pitch?) and the recent Euro Qualifications.The worst part is that Joe Allen,who had an excellent Euros with Wales,has been sold to Stoke to make room for this black flop.To be fair,I also must add that Joe Allen wanted to go as he was behind both Henderson,Can(yes,the "German" one) in the midfield two.

    Regarding Barca you seem right in your assertion,Frederic.With Arda Turan sure to go,Barca had no choice but to keep Munir.They're still sponsored by Qatar Airways afterall!
    And the same applies to Umtiti's transfer.While we may not approve of it,Barca need to have a black player what with their huge following all over the world,including Africa.Technically,Alex song,who happens to be one black player who seems tough to hate,is still there but he is expected to move if someone is stupid to pay his astronomical wages.Else,he'll leave on another loan to some team in the EPL.

    And lastly regarding Suarez,I don't understand why is called a non-white.Yes,he clearly isn't the brightest of the footballing bunch(and it shows in his stupid face) and seems to have the self-restraint of a negro high on jenkem,he still looks fairly white,if you can ignore those ugly fangs of his of course.Are you sure he is a non-white,or are we just "extrapolating" like we did with Aguero?

    Not sure how Dortmund fans will take Goetze's return, after a very acrimonious transfer to Bayern just a couple of years ago. As a player - he has the quality, however - his defection to Dortmunnd's main rivals shows that he definitely lacks in the loyalty department... but then again we live in an age where loyalty is an optional.

    Higuain has moved to Juve for 94m,and will be paid 7.5m a season.We'll he's finally back in the CL,where he belongs.I guess this also means that the Pogba deal will be done soon.

    Also,Barcelona have signed Vietto for 22m.Good,for it will mean Munir will only start in cup games etc. or come on very late.


    Also,Arsenal have apparently bid for Mahrez.The idiots should instead go for Mario Gomez who should be cheap,considering he cancelled his contract with Besitkas due to the "failed coup".

    Higuain's move to Juve has been confirmed,and Napoli have bought Milik as his replacement.Hopefully he will put the Euros behind him.

    Also,Vietto has gone to Sevilla and NOT Barca.

    Finally,Ciro Immobile has moved to Lazio.

    And Erik Durm. The future of Germany. Good guy, with good values and respect for traditions (nice tattoos). [​IMG] [​IMG]

    There were some polemics a few years ago about him being racist (he called Patrice Evra a "negro", he was punished for that and Evra was very angry toward him). So for me Suarez is white (the fact to be suspected of racism is reserved to people considered as white).

    I've never witnessed more ridiculousness in a transfer window period than all of this Pogba hype over the past couple of weeks, especially on ESPN FC.

    It's really reached a crescendo here the past few days with speculation that he's going to ManU. The (((press))) on ESPN FC are completely over-the-top in their praise of him, saying that ManU desperately need him, even though they just won the FA Community Shield without him. Their effusive praise of him is almost as intense of their denigration of Wayne Rooney. They make him out to be some sort of demigod, when he's nothing but a mediocre talent, at best. Toni Kroos is twice the player Pogba is, sans the hype. Of course, there's no agenda.

    Now they are starting up with the ridiculously overrated Lukaku, whether he will stay with Everton or go to Chelsea. More ludicrous praise compared to the actual amount of production...always betting on their ever elusive "upside" that never seems to come to fruition.

    Yesterday on the front page of BSPN FC, they showed a huge image of Pogba in the passenger's seat of a car going to get his ManU medical along with huge font to describe it.

    Today is the following...

    It's the largest fee ever payed for a (mediocre, at best) player; a "Frenchman" as they describe it. Now ManU will be "world beaters". Pure, unadulterated, propaganda.

    I predict ManU will struggle at times dispite their "star" signings. I can't see them finishing higher than 5th.

    Just as we expected from Pogba:

    From BSPN FC regarding Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Manchester City:

    Jose Mourinho's appalling record against Pep Guardiola continues, but he wasn't aided by two of his new signings at Old Trafford. Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan fell well short of expectations. Mourinho admitted that he could have taken off the Armenian long before half-time but didn't want to destroy him. As for Pogba, there were flashes of quality, but there were also times when he seemed as much a spectator as the rest of us. These were not the kind of performances you expect for those prices. Perhaps United aren't as far down the road to improvement as we thought.


    The statement below was the bottom caption of an action image of Pogba as part of the story. I didn't want to include the image of him in case any of you were still eating:

    Paul Pogba came back to Man United with massive expectations but is so far failing to live up.


    Side note: I wonder whatever happened to our contingent from France, frederic38 and Lisa D return. Has France banned CF after their version of the "Patriot Act (sic)" became law? What about ThePhilosopher and some others. Odd that football season is now in play and they are nowhere to be found.

    Heretic -

    I guess I must be one of those nameless “others”. Well, in my case You largely answered Your own question by asking the following in the “Premier Teams To Root For” thread:

    http://castefootball.us/index.php?threads/the-2016-17-premier-teams-to-root-for.35513/#post-681154

    The Premier League is impossible to stomach for a fellow like me. I’m rather perplexed that so many Caste Football members persist with watching the NFL, which obviously features a far lower percentage of White players than the English Premier League does. In fact, I’m sure that every US-based Caste Football member would love to see the percentage of White NFL starters mirror that of the White portion of Premier League starters, which generally equates to between 58 and 60%. I, on the other hand, find the Premier League unbearable. But there it is…

    I’ve reached a point in my life where football as a whole has become too unpalatable. Naturally, the racial element grates the most, but there are a few other contributing issues:

    (a) the corporate mega-club paradigm of the post-1990s game, in which a few ultra-rich (and consequently ultra-influential) clubs from the biggest-money leagues have monopolised success - mainly by being allowed to hoard the best players from around the world and partly by increasingly shameless double standards in refereeing;

    (b) the growing influence of Asian and Arab owners, whose vulgar spending and transparent interference in day-to-day club affairs makes that of Jewish owners appear almost inconsequential by comparison;

    (c) the fact that many - if not a majority - of White players at top-flight level are narcissistic, criminally-overpaid idiots with no respect for either the fans or the sport and whose appearance and conduct would have put me off even as a football-mad eleven year old

    Let’s use golden boy Lionel Messi to illustrate that final point. Forget the huge tattoos, the recently peroxided hair, and the childish attempts at gaining sartorial notoriety by wearing garish suits straight out of an Austin Powers film...

    This growth-hormone fuelled midget suddenly announced his international “retirement” at the age of 29 in a fit of pique following defeat on penalties in the final of the Copa America. Pure class. The little ponce didn’t get the international trophy he wanted so he was officially packing it in. But about a month and a half later - after waiting long enough to avoid looking too much like the petulant brat he is, and doubtlessly mulling over the potential loss of endorsement income linked to international football - Messi magnanimously proclaimed his heroic return, citing patriotic love for Argentina, and so on. As I said - pure class…

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention Messi’s tax evasion (which, of course, he knew nothing about…).

    One last thing - why should I waste my time watching, analysing, and commenting on a sport which relentlessly promotes…

    I feel the same way as Rebajlo. I've watched exactly one Premier League match this season - the Manchester derby - as well as bits and pieces of the Slovakia v England borefest and some Champions League highlights this past week. To get the Spanish and Italian leagues I'd have to pay a subscription fee to a Qatar government-owned channel that would bring my satellite bill well over $100. If it were entirely up to me I'd get rid of TV altogether because every time I turn it on I'm subjected to propaganda from the commercials and programmes alike.

    It's not just football though. I started to watch a baseball game the other night. When the very first batter (Baltimore Orioles) of the game came up the commentator informed us that the player had spoken out about baseball being too white or something. A few minutes later there was a lecture from the commentators about the social injustices blacks face. I switched it off in disgust. The NFL - ie the National Felons League? No way. Right now it's only tennis and Formula One that I'm paying much attention to. I'll try the NHL's so-called World Cup of Hockey even though it's very gimmicky. As for football I'll probably watch the occasional Champions League match as the Premier League looks close to unwatchable this year, again.
