To be fair they are in real danger of going bust, they need every penny they can get.

Pretty sure the tickets for our tie were an increase on the usual prices they charge.

Their situation is pretty serious, don't blame them trying to squeeze every penny out of this cup run

Absolutely the right thing to do given their circumstances. Good luck to Macclesfield.

I'm pretty much certain that FIFA arranged the World Cup Draw.

I thought it was generally known it is rigged....more of a surprise if it was proved not to be.

Some of the wages that they are paying those players in the Championship are nothing short of obscene.

The filthy cash cow lure of the Premiership remains.

I posted it in the things that make you feel good thread. It's definitely something that's good, especially when that cunt's involved.

Barcelona have confirmed that Neymar's parents got 34m of the 48.6m paid for the Brazil striker in June.
The 21-year-old's former club Santos received the other 14.6m

I dont know why but that seems a little dodgy.

South American players aren't owned by the clubs are they? It's a completely different model down there, sponsors and agents get the most of it.

If it wasn't his parents it would be some faceless agent, so at least that's something.
