    honestly, there are no teams that i will dislike
    maybe italy because they have balotelli
    england i believe will be the blackest team, but they will also have a lot of likeable white players and they will probably be much whiter than the last champions league winner :thumbup:

    for the most black roster, it will probably be france, but they got a lot better since 2010, and they deserve to be suported (we should hope that they atleast play beautifuly and show a good image)

    Well I am part French, France is always my second favorite team after Greece........well with the exception of 2006, I was rooting for Italy in that final of that world cup, the team had like 7 blacks and 4 white starters right? I couldn't root for that, thank God they did not win back then cause it would be the first and only black dominated team winning a world cup.

    Not even Brazil of 2002 did not have so many Negroes in the starting team, I think Brazil back in 2002 had 5 whites, 3 mixed and 3 blacks.

    Not this bollocks...again... :frusty:


    You live in Europe, are half-French and presumably keep abreast of current events, yet still find Arabs generally acceptable?

    As soon as I saw the name Zeus after his first post I suspected he was the same Greek troll who was kicked out of here last year. His writing style is similar. We'll see.

    i forgot about this greek guy
    he insulted me in one of my first posts when i said that modern greeks were unrelated to ancient greeks
    it seems to be the same, because they are both greek and french at the same time, which is not that common


    i looked up the thread where he insulted me, and he said back then that albanians were not white
    now he says that most arabs are white

    ukraine!

    [video=youtube_share;Z8mNvcxJ-5A]http://youtu.be/Z8mNvcxJ-5A[/video]

    they have a though group but watch out!

    also they have no black, no arab, no brazilian or other import in their team (this may not remain this way since they have a lot of south americans in their national league - a team named metallist karkorw or something like that had 9 south american starters this season for example - so we should enjoy this team)

    as for the rest of your post, as rebajlo pointed out, you're not the first one to say that arabs are white, and some of the posters that said this were not trolls (milanclass for example)
    you sound much more reasonable than where you were named "spartan" :grin:

    Hehehe, mon pot, I guess during my Spartan "era" I thought I was in a war zone again, instead of a forum j/k!:tinfoil3:

    We all have the same good purposes in this forum, no doubt about that, but we need to accept that there will be a few differences in opinion and in some of our views, there's nothing wrong with that in my opinion. I tend to see things more optimistic and focusing on all the things we whites invent, dominate, own etc.

    Our great kind, conquered and colonized most of the planet (moon and space as well). Middle East was conquered by Greeks, Romans and other Europeans during the years, same goes for Latin America, India, Australia, North America etc so TO ME it's natural that there will be in all those places plenty of pure descendants of our great dominant white kind.

    I never said that ALL Arabs are white, or ALL South Americans are white, I would never make such a stupid and incorrect claim, but let's be realistic guys, our great kind exists everywhere, thanks to our great, adventurous, risky, ambitious white ancestors who were warriors, explorers etc.

    I won't sit in my house and swallow all these junky "historical", "geographical" and "social" information these Jews are serving us today.............Of course not all Arabs are not white, but some of them are pure descendants of our great ancestors aka Zidane, Benzema, Shakira, Steve Jobs etc........now if our white Arabic brothers have been brainwashed from the anti-white Jewish propaganda and culturally they don't feel so white, ok that's another story, but their blood and genes is as white as it gets, plain fact.

    Ukraine is a good choice by the way, I am rooting for Greece and France of course, (well if the team is over 50% Negroes I won't) and I am hoping that a team with a fully 23 white roster wins it, Greece hopefully.

    I'll be cheering for Germany and Denmark. As long as Boateng doesn't play much for Germany and Khedira doesn't start. If Simon Poulson doesn't play for Denmark, I'll hope they win. I'm also cheering for Ukraine, Russia, or Ireland win it. I don't want England, France, Holland, or Portugal to win it though.
    My predictions are:
    Group A: Russia and Poland
    Group B: Germany and Denmark
    Group C: Spain and Italy
    Group D: England and Ukraine

    I think Germany will win it all.

    You can't cheer for everybody... :biggrin:
    Just pick one team and stick to it.
    For people used to Champion's league or the English PL, it's going to be refreshingly white:smiley:.

    I hope England can have at least 8 white starters that could equal Germany, who might have 8. England could have as many as 10 if all goes well. I am just not a Germany fan so I can't cheer for them. I'd rather have Spain win again than Germany. I wouldn't mind Ireland or the Ukraine.

    I can't root for Italy just because of you know who. He ruined Italy.

    Porthos, I'll be cheering for Germany first, but if they end up playing the undeserving Boateng a large amount, then I'm cheering for Russia. After watching Boateng against Chelsea, I have no idea where he gets his hype from. Schmelzer or Howedes are far more deserving candidates at left back then Boateng. Khedira will probably be sharing time with Toni Kroos opposite Schweinsteiger. I think the Russians can surprise people this year again. I like Arshavin a lot.

    I agree Europe. I can't cheer for Italy either. Ballotelli is the most arrogant and annoying footballer ever. I just can't see myself cheering for any team he plays for.

    It looks like Carroll will start for England in Rooney's place, as he is on form and Welbeck's injured. I think the lineup vs. France should look something like:

    Hart
    Jones-Terry-Cahill-A. Cole
    Parker-Barry
    Young-Gerrard-Lampard
    Carroll

    That makes 9 white starters, although I could see Glen Johnson starting ahead of Phil Jones if he's healthy. Still not bad considering.

    Notice the negativity of the commenters below the Telegraph article.

    It's the same with this article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/fo...t-for-England-in-friendly-against-Norway.html

    The first comment is, predictably enough, about Carroll's transfer fee.:dork:

    It also mentions that Robert Green will start in net.

    Doesn't Young play on the left or can he play on the right? I know speed isn't everything, but Barry is slow and Lampard is fairly slow. Barry is the guy who was out run by the Gerrman in the WC. A holding midfielder should be faster. Hargreaves would have been better. They should have picked Adam Johsnon over Downing. They have fast wingers in Young and Walcott. Or leave one of those out and pick Downing and Johnson. Young does score more than Downing.

    They'll probably end up with wingers Walcott and Young because the coaches now have to have the black winger. Gerrard and lampard with Parker as holding midfield.

    these fans are incredible....they have so much hate for carroll

    in france we have the same thing with gourcuff
    everybody is upset because he was called in the team for the euro champs, while he didn't play much this year and the media said he was bad when he played
    but actually he wasn't bad, and what is a bad season for gourcuff would be an incredible season for any other player

    here is a video my friend (the one who does videos about benzema's misses) made about gourcuff's 2011-2012 season:

    [video=youtube_share;zTNjiyDCuiA]http://youtu.be/zTNjiyDCuiA[/video]

    imagine if an arab player did half the things that gourcuff did this season (while playing around 10 matches), the media would be all over him

    my friend doesn't understand why the media talk so negatively about him
    like with carroll, they also mention his high transfert fee
    the anti-white "humorists" from "les guignols" (famous french TV show) mocked him
    yet they don't ask why alou diarra, who had an horrible season with marseille, is called, because he is the token black player
    (they are the same "humorists" who created a diplomatic incident with spain when they said that all the spanish sportsmen - including the football team - were on penformance enhancing drugs
    yet, again, they said nothing about the jamaican sprinters, because they are black)


    gourcuff is also the main reason why we qualified to the euro champs (he was the french national team top scorer during the qualifications) so how is he suposed not to be in the team?

    No you're right, Young would play on the left. As for Barry, he played that role well for Man City this year (alongside Toure). I agree that Gerrard could be an effective defensive midfielder like Schweinsteiger, but that article and others have said he'll be the primary attacking midfielder.

    Walcott has speed, but almost nothing else, he can't cross or score, and Downing is equally unimpressive IMO. I like Adam Johnson a lot and think he or even Milner could play the right wing effectively, but neither played there much at all this season. I'd like to see Johnson sign with a new team where he'd get more playing time next year. With Lampard's recent form, I think Hodgson will play him on the right, but allow him to roam, which is a role he's played for England in the past.

    While the lineup against France will obviously be different, England are currently starting 9 whites in their friendly against Norway. The Chelsea players (Terry, Cahill, Cole, Lampard) are all on break, but interestingly Downing and Milner are starting ahead of Walcott on the wings.

    The full lineup is:

    Green
    Jones-Jagielka-Lescott-Baines
    Milner-Gerrard-Parker-Downing
    Young
    Carroll

    Looks good. Johnson is hurt, so he might have played. Norway looks pathetic. I think they had at least 2 blacks and some Morrocans.

    Walcott gets the ball on a breakaway and loses control of the ball again. His skills are weak,

    Yep, just got nutmegged by Risse on defense. He's much more of a liability than a benefit. I feel similarly about Glen Johnson, he can provide some offense, but struggles getting back on defense.

    Milner and Carroll have played well from what I've seen, but I'd like to see Carroll score to silence the doubters.

    glen johnson was very annoying in each liverpool match i watched, this guy seems to think that he is the new ronaldinho, but he is suposed to be a fullback
    if capello was still england's coach, phil jones would play in his place (he said that he was one of his favourite players)
    hopefully the new coach will decide to play with jones

    I think Cahill will hopefully start next to Terry. I think Baines is a better attacking left back than Cole. He can also cross. He even took a free kick today.Maybe Cole is better defensively.

    I hope the manager brings in Adam Johnson and replaces one the the other wingers, which , if he does, will ,most likely be Downing.

    lescott? no way
    if kompany was english, he would have played, but not lescott


    the french coach announced the team that will play the friendly match against iceland tonight:

    mandanda
    debuchy-rami-mexes-evra
    cabaye-gourcuff-nasri
    ben arfa-benzema-menez

    mandanda (the goofy black goal keeper) plays because lloris wants to rest, but lloris is ofcourse our number 1 goalkeeper

    so there will be 2 blacks, 4 arabs and 5 whites (including cabaye who is 1/4 asian)

    this team is really offensive minded, not sure if he will play this way against england
    but that would be 1 black, 4 arabs and 6 whites at the euro champs when lloris will play, with giroud coming in as a substitute
    one of the arabs (especially ben arfa) is likely to be replaced by a black defensive middlefielder when we will play real matches
    and ribery should also play at the euro champs
