Re: Actual (Association) Football Talk.

Some reports (well. just the (tabloid level) newspaper De Telegraaf) of Ajax being in financial troubles. Needing to sell Anita and VdWiel to fix their budget.

Re: London Olympics 2012

I don't mind dressage I guess, but giving the medals to the human riders is bullshit. Man up and give them to the horses! And count them for whichever country the horse is from.
