Considering Ozil and Schuller, maybe ManU could use a few Nazis.

The logo looks more Weimar-era Bauhaus to me, or Kraftwerk, especially the black/red.

As an Arsenal fan, I have no love for Man U. but this seems to be much to do about nothing.

Do you mean Chelsea's German winger? You can call him Shirley.

So is anything with fourfold rotational symmetry and no mirror planes a swastika now?

As well they should.  I mean, did you see that ludicrous display last night?  What was Wenger thinking, sending Walcott on that early?  Fing about Arsenal is, they always try an' walk it in.

I agree, I didn't see anything wrong with it. I had to look it over several times to see what *might* be the problem.

Oh FFS. The logo isn't a swastika. Spurs fans chanting "Come on you Yids" isn't sectarian. Tempest in a teapot. As if I didn't have enough reasons to detest English football.

The newspapers have twelve pages to fill and no one who actually knows about the game anymore.

The standard Premier League match report goes something like this. The first third is setting up the game touching on league position, history of recent matches and any "scandels" currently going on or has been manufactured by the press or manager. The 2nd thrid will cover the high points of the game. The final third will be reaction from the managers and any outrage that can be manufactured.

If you are lucky and are reading a broadsheet you might get a line saying "the manager changed the tactics" or "player X couldn't handle player Y" but no actual detail on tactics, set up, how the managers changed things or why a player had the space to do things. They can't write it because they don't know.

To see the level of game knowledge that the media in general has you only need to look at the hoolah around David Beckham and the England team. He hasn't been good enough to play for England since 2006 yet every time an England game came around the clamour for him to be in the team started from the media and the manager had to include him in the squad to get the press off his back.

Chelsea, you're having a laugh, in't ya?

Slightly similar maybe, but not a reference to a swastika in any way. Big deal, little deal, no deal.
