  1. Bob Marley's whole catalogue is going to be cancelled soon. He's a murderer after all. He once shot a sheriff.
  2. Anybody know what happened to him?
  3. Some parts sound like they're directly taken out of Independence Day.
  4. Originally on A&E. But I watched it on YouTube. But it's split up into many parts.
  5. Yes, I have seen it. I have been a KISS fan since I was 10 years old, so there wasn't much new information. But I really liked the footage of Gene and Paul just sitting together and talking. Paul without shoes on the sofa and Gene in the armchair, both comfy and seemingly relaxed... You usually don't seem them like this. Also because of this documentry I have been listening to a lot of KISS lately. There's also a great podcast called Rock Album Analysts out there. They're analysing the entire KISS catalogue album by album. If you like KISS I can certainly recommend it. The only crossover between KISS and Bruce that I can think of is Outlaw Pete.
  6. My first thought: Why the hell isn't Ronaldo taking that penalty?? But then I read that Bruno Fernandes actually has a higher conversion rate over the last couple of seasons. Something like 90% to 80%.
  7. And as far as I remember City lost both despite playing defensive midfielders.
  8. The big difference is the grass. Stadiums that hold concerts over the summer have to completely renew their pitches before the new season starts. Only one concert can ruin the playing surface. So concerts during football season are just not possible.

    On one hand I like it, because it's also important to show players that they can't have everything they want and have to stand by their contractual obligations. On the other hand it shows what is wrong with modern football, when a club can let go of that kinda money without worrying about it. But, let's not forget, we don't even know if Mbappe really wanted to go to Real this year. Spanish sports papers are some of the worst propaganda rags in the world. And unfortunately many international papers take their word as gospel and reprint every crap they write.
  10. I ride past that field several times a week on my bike. And I always wonder how 70 or 80k would fit there. It seems so small. Funny story about that concert weekend: On Saturday afternoon Austria Wien hammered Rapid Wien in the Vienna football derby. At that time it was still normal for coaches to be interviewed for TV on the bench during matches. So the Rapid coach, Hans Krankl, a Rapid legend who I despised because I was Austria fan, was interviewed towards the end of the second half when his team was already down 5-1. The reporter sat next to Krankl on the bench trying to get a statement, but Krankl didn't say a word. The reporter kept asking, but no answers. At one point the reporter says: "Mr. Krankl, just say anything.". And after a moment Krankl replied without even looking at him: "Tonight, Guns n Roses, live at the Donauinsel." The reporter, slightly taken aback said: "Is that all you have to say?". And Krankl answered: "No, tomorrow, U2, live, also at the Donauinsel.". From that moment on I liked the guy.

    Thanks @JimCT very interesting numbers. Nothing that surprises me but nice to see them illustrated like this. I have always said that he's the most complete player ever. He excels in every aspect of the offensive game. Many say CR is the better goal-scorer, yet Messi scores more with less attempts. Many say he needed Xavi and Iniesta, yet Messi had more assists and created more chances than both of them combined. For several years in a row he finished La Liga with the most goals, assists and chances created. He can dictate the pace of games, can orchestrate and we don't have to talk about his dribbling skills. I once saw a stat about goals scored after dribbling one, two, three or more players. Messi was head and shoulders above everybody else in football history.
  12. That was Vienna's biggest concert weekend ever. U2 live on Saturday, followed by Guns N Roses on Sunday - at that time the biggest bands in the world. But it wasn't 100.000. The capacity for concerts on the Donauinsel is somewhere between 70.000 and 80.000 A few pics from the Guns N Roses show...
  13. To think all of them are money-grabbers would be as naive as to think all of them are sincere. This has to be thoroughly investigated and if guilty he should have the book thrown at him, no matter how old he is.
