Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

Regards,
paman and wm

  • 2010 World Cup Final: Belanda vs. Spain

    What say you?

    1 - 0 is just a fair deal for both teams.....Torres did some stupid selfish move during last minutes that could've made the game ended up in 2 -0.....

    Cant wait to see Sneijder vs Xavi

      Boo hoo, don't have the former-fascists to disparage anymore; just a couple of ex-colonial masters. Is the passion gone for most of the world's fans?

          The Franco regime was Fascist (Falangist). Remember the famous Picasso painting Guernica.



          Those are Nazi airplanes raining down bombs on Republican forces. The dress rehearsal for WWII was fought in Spain a few years earlier and won by the Falangists. To this day political and legal obstacles are thrown, by the political successors of the Franco regime, in the way of uncovering the crimes of the Spanish Civil War and bringing the perpetrators to justice.


          I'm cheering for the Netherlands. I'm still waiting for them to win it ever since I cheered for them as a little boy in the 1978 final against the haughty Argentines.

                Yes, I was a little boy dejected by the Dutch loss. Freakin' Mario Kempes!

                That's ok, Alia. I won't hold your young age against you. I am magnanimous like that.

                    Yes, forgot about that little tryout before the big one. Those who want root on former-Fascists can still be accommodated. I stand corrected.

                      At ten years old during that period you can be forgiven.

                        Spain lost a match in the first round. They don't deserve to be champs, seeing that Belanda has won all its matches so far.

                          I seem to remember reading that Spain and Belanda have never met in a World Cup game.

                            Its a tough call, Last night Spain gave Jerman a football lesson.....Superior in all sides....Belanda on the other hand, got Sneijder's magic touch...
                            Both are my fave team....So I guess, I'll prepare my Kopi Luwak and enjoy the game...

                              Hope it is Belanda, for Bergkamp, Overmars, De boer (both), Gullitt, van Basten, Rijkard, Muhren, Thijsen, Kroll, Cruyff, Neeskens, van der Kerkoff (both), Rensenbrink, Rep and all the others (sorry about the spelling). Who have I missed?
