12 million a year. Crazy.

Swansea Indepenent Poster Of The Year 2021. Dr P / Mart66 / Roathie / Parlay / E20/ Duffle was 2nd, but he is deluded and thinks in his little twisted brain that he won. Poor sod. We let him win this year, as he has cried for a whole year. His 14 usernames, bless his cotton socks.

And only achieved what was expected at Rangers and flunked his lines at Villa.

A great believer in taking anything you like to wherever you want to.

30 years ago I last laced up my Puma togs , screw in or rubber studs for Asheigh Road .

Wonder if obscene Saudi money will draw me to that area for the ultimate finale , yes .

Seems like , including boxers too , cannot resist the financial benefits of this new ground .

I don't think they will worry to much when spending their inheritance in years to come.

Disappointing


He was never likely to get the job he truly wants, or for that matter a Premier League job, so I don't blame in cashing in, come back super rich and retire from Football or become a pundit, unless of course he gets the tin tack out there!

I think it’s a mental appointment, for £12m per annum they could have got someone a lot better than that. He’s a name and that’s it. For £12m a year, quite a few managers would happily give up a job in a top league and move to Saudi, I’d have gone after that Unai Emery guy at Villla - I think he’s showed what he can do after taking over from Gerrard.

Saudi is a awful regime authoritarian and unjust. The Muslim faith is supposed to be kind and fair and treat people with respect. The Qatar world cup showed how they treated the workers and it was dreadful (Muslims and non Muslims alike).

It took Western agencies (mostly Christian) to get them to treat Muslim and other works with some decency.

The Arabians control their own affairs and it is clearly a lot better living there than in Yemen. There the Houthi's supported by Iran are reportedly Shia version of the Taliban. Harsh misogynistic and brutal.

So what should we do? Oman is a lovely place and a model example. Woman have a lot more freedom. I met a few female students recently. They were beautiful and delightful and pro UK. UK helped them smash the hothead book wavers in the 1950s. Everyone life is better and they can pray in peace.

Engagement is the way forward. engage and evolve. They will adopt the western ways that make sense to them and are morally sound (treating immigrant workers and women better). Iran has closed mind. So do the fanatatics in Yemen. Few Muslims want their countries to be the mess of Afghanistan and Yemen.

We do not want Arabs running our game however like golf.

Wise sage since Toshack era

The Saudi's are hovering up Western players. In the EPL they are paying obscene wages but the Saudi's are paying even more obscene wages again.

This wage structure is immoral, oil wealth is being used to "sportwash" a country with a poor human rights record that has been carrying out some very dodgy dealings and lets not forget, they have kidnapped Saudi dissidents and even tempted one into an embassy (Jamal Khashoggi) and murdered him.

They clearly want to own the Worlds club football, by trying to create the worlds best league and they have the wealth to do it unfortunately.

You mention the UK helping Oman in the 1950's - but I wonder if those female students know anything about the "Battle of Mirbat" in 1972 which helped them enjoy the freedom they have now??

My late great mate was a very, very close friend of "Laba" - Talaiasi Labalaba - and until the day he died, campaigned for "Laba" to be posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross!!


Everyday above ground ... Is a good day! 😎

I've read his story and how the rest of that small detachment held out against overwhelming odds .At the time the SAS were little known if at all by the public and this action if anything demonstrates the courage and comradeship of our specialised forces (if there was indeed ever doubt )
Laba certainly deserves far greater recognition than he's previously received

This is a good book written by one of the soldiers - Roger Cole - who took part in the battle ...

You don’t have to travel far back in time to wonderful western (mostly Christian) countries to find treated poorly.
The whole middle east takes its treatment of people, women especially, from the highly stratified Greek (home of democracy!) model of outsiders having no rights and women kept cloistered the whole of the their lives except when used as possessions and married off.
The problem isn’t which god you worship or how you go about it. The problem is believing in a god and using it to control others.
Back to football.
For £12 million even wealthy people would take that.
