    rejects liverpool goes to stoke wat thats what we said last year It is, but you should have qualified. It was a shock that you didn't go through. For a team of the stature of United I'd expect them to be unbeaten in both last year's group and this year's one. Swindon lost their third game in a row, have to say I think it's afters from the Foderingham debacle that's caused this problem to flare up. Have no doubt it'll be fixed soon.

    I loved it. Wouldn't say I'm part of the "fandom", but I enjoyed the six episodes so far more than any drama I've watched in the last few years.

    Which President would be best to have now?

    I'd like to participate in this topic but I don't necessarily know enough about Presidents before the 1960s to answer it best. Of the ones I know enough about, I can't really think of any who've faced dire economic straits and come out victorious. Someone in the 1930s, I guess? I'll change it (in my case) to who of former PMs I think is best suited to lead Britain at the moment. Well, politics has changed a lot since 1951 but Clem Attlee seems like he was a good PM. You'd need some of his cabinet ministers too, but that'd be good.

    2012 Election Thread

    Honestly, Mitt Romney was only repeating what many Britons were saying themselves. The Olympics turned out fine for London in many ways, but in other ways they were a complete joke. One sticking point with the Olympics in London was it was championed as this economic stimulator for London when in reality it resulted in less tourism than London would of normally had. Say if you're hosting a dinner party. You might joke about it being an absolute disaster beforehand, but if one of the guests to said dinner party did the same thing you'd be offended. This is a similar sort of scenario imo Sorry about the late reply, I've not been on Sal's much in the past few months :(

    Should get through your group with your eyes closed at least Tubby, by far the best side there. Group D will be brilliant. Swindon got Burnley in the League Cup. Oh well. Was hoping for a good draw but it's winnable (especially at home) so I'll take it. Will be good to see Charlie Austin back at the County Ground, might get a ticket

    Incidentally the fourth goal led to one of my favourite commentary moments of all time. The local radio co-commentator sounded like he was about to burst into tears of joy while he shouted "YES! YES! YESSSSS!" over the lead commentator shouting about Collins scoring. Have to say this PL season could be the most interesting in a while. I wonder if Swansea and Everton can keep up their scintillating form, and Wigan can be dark horses for a top 10 finish like I said to my (laughing) friends

    SWINDON 4-3 STOKE I love supporting Swindon. I love Paolo Di Canio! What a manager, what a squad, what players! I really hope we get a good draw in the next round, teaching Arsenal a footballing lesson at the Emirates would be amazing!

    Dear dear dear Liverpool, awful! Swindon drew 0-0. Cool. The team I manage on FM 2012 (Berliner AK 07) beat Hoffenheim 4-0. Hoffenheim are three divisions higher than them and played a very strong team. Great result for Berliner AK!

    2012 Election Thread

    I'm finding it really hard to care about the outcome of this election. Very little appears to have changed since Obama took power from Bush - this was billed as a revolutionary change in power - and so it seems that even if Romney took over, I'd hardly even notice the results. The two politicians genuinely seem to be similar, but act different due to different emphasis on their policies and for basic political point scoring, which is one of my biggest gripes with politics anywhere. If politicians can get a brief surge of popularity for attacking an opponent, they do it. It has no effect on improving what they should be in politics for - governing their country and influencing change - but it happens everywhere. I personally don't like Romney, he seems like an odious little man and a presidency under him would probably just be full of Bush-esque gaffes (we've even seen the attention grabbing "London isn't ready for the Olympics" gaffe proven spectacularly wrong, imagine something that in the greater scheme of world politics actually mattered!). My vote would be with Obama, but I still think he's not a particularly good candidate. What America needs is a few more parties who can realistically make an impression on Congress. And ones who are genuinely different: where's a mainstream left wing party? Even a centrist party! The Democrats are (I believe) supposedly centrist, but then you compare them to centrist parties in Europe (ie. the Lib Dems), and it's a massive difference. The only side of the spectrum well represented in America is the right wing, which is a shame because it leads to elections like this where it feels like there's no great change at stake. Just for clarification I feel similarly disenchanted with British politics. Over the past year or so I've been reading about our political history, and have been genuinely inspired by the rise of Labour and the feats of Attlee's government in the late 1940s. There isn't anything like that out there with the current parties and candidates in the UK, so I'm not just criticising the US' politics. Oh well.

    Wouldn't say it was pathetic, he was pushed over! If it takes you by surprise then it can sometimes be difficult to get back up... Very stupid by Luisao but it is just a friendly so he shouldn't be suspended, just some sort of fine would suffice really. Don't understand how a friendly can get so heated! In other news, Swindon beat Brighton (in the league above us) 3-0 in the League Cup! Benson and two from Navarro (who just signed for us from, yes, you guessed it, Brighton). I'm feeling confident for this season already!

    Soccer or Football?

    I call it football. In my country it is called football, in most other languages it is translatable as football, in most countries where football is a decent sized sport it is called football. I don't like the sound of the word soccer, but the thing that grates me about the word soccer is more the people who live in countries where the sport is called FOOTBALL and still call it soccer. Despite the idiotic stuff I've spouted on here in the past about America calling the game soccer, I don't particularly have a problem with people calling it that. Except for when they're a minority in fans of people who call the game "football", as talking about football in Americanised terms is one of the quickest ways to sound like you have no idea of what's going on, even if you're very knowledgeable about the game. tl;dr: I call it football but don't really care what others call it, as long as it doesn't sound stupid.

    I think most of people looking down on Olympic football is due to it being dismissed for so long. It's on the main channels here a lot more now that Team GB are in it, if we win the men or women's side of it (probably more likely the women's but still unlikely), it'll be a lot more popular than before the tournament began. You can't really judge it alongside the World Cup as it's limited to under 23s with 3 overaged players, and of the top nations few qualify. I'm sure if you had the likes of France, Italy, Germany, Argentina, there'd be more reason to watch it.

    we know memes Swindon haven't signed anyone in a while, so I guess we'll do what we did last time we didn't sign anyone for a while and sign 6 players in a few days.

    Both Chelsea and City won comps that pay out a lot of winner money and that the club will then be able to peddle a lot of merchandise off the back of, so I guess it's not as bad as PSG who won diddly squat :P Gonna be funny watching Motherwell in the CL this year, I wonder how many Panathinaikos will put past them.... :P

    £8 is a bargain! I'm getting pretty optimistic about Gladbach's CL campaign next season, they could definitely make the groups. Hoilett, Xhaka, Mlapa and Dominguez all look like quality players. Just a shame Reus has to leave :(

    Dominguez signed for Gladbach! What's he like as a player? :D
