Re: soccer soccer soccer

The BBC on the Steffen move: Zack Steffen: Manchester City close to signing MLS goalkeeper for £7m City cannot complete the deal until the January transfer window opens. It is not clear whether Steffen will be able to get a work permit to join City immediately or if he will go somewhere else on loan.

Re: Politics & Current Events

We need to get to a place where voting is much more highly encouraged, if not required. Australia has compulsory voting, or you are fined. Voting day needs to be a national holiday, and we need to either make voting compulsory or at least highly incentivized (like linking it to universal basic inco...

Re: Beer Thread 2.0

I mean the regular BCBS runs about $10-$11, where a bomber of Abt 12 runs about the same. A 4pack of Abt12 sells at €7,35 in my supermarket (which is about 8,3 $) OTOH, a 4pack of imported Tank7 (Boulevard Brewing) in the same outlet will set you back €8,79 ( roughly 10 $) So I guess the "impo...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Bravo is done for the year. I think he'll be ederson's back up for the year and then be loaned out in the summer window. They recalled Muric from his loan spell at NAC to fill the backup role. And then they bought Zach Steffen. While I don't watch a ton of Kosovan (Kosovoan?) or NAC Breda training ...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I think Steffen absolutely has the potential to eventually start for a team like City, unlike the keepers who were statistically better and obviously more consistent this year but it's a long shot. If we weren't 4 years away from the next world cup, id be more wary of this move. ManCity already hav...

So on the day that a man accused of sexual assault is poised to take another step towards SCOTUS, the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded to a woman who survived being an IS sex slave and not to the man who thought he should get it for talking to Kim Jong-un.
