This makes no sense. I'd rather my team invest in a sustainable academy system that produces players that can play at the 1st team level.

Can you imagine a Milwaukee Brewers island or Detroit Lions island? Different balance sheet for RM, but still.

it's not weird in the context of RM. They've always been a club of grandiosity , financed by fascism during the Franco era spilling into crony capitalist bank favoritism thereafter. They've always been about the gaudy expenses and over-the-top presentations since forever. So in that sense, I'm not surprised. Please don't bring up that other barbarian activity in this beautiful thread tongue.gif

Really?? You can't see the connection? This board is filled with tough guys.

To say the least. I have pics from my visit to the RM museum at the Bernabeu last summer. Here are titles of some of the exhibits, and I am not kidding about this:

"The Greatest Football Team Of All Time" (guess who)
"The Greatest Football President Of All Time" (stadium namesake)
"How The Greatest Football President Of All Time Found The Greatest Player Of All Time" (Di Stefano)
"How The Greatest Football President Of All Time Created The Competition Now Known As The Champions League, Which We Win All The Time" (that would be 9 times)

I have a pic of myself standing in front of all the European trophies but one was chopped out of the pic because there was insufficient room on the pic frame.

The RM museum is the gaudiest orgy of silverware and self-promoting chest beating you will see on the planet. It was great.

I went there last year expecting the bricks, bottles and slashed tires but we only got a can chucked at us just before we went into the compound. I thought it was a bit of a let down compared to old men who went everywhere in the 80s getting visibly worried about open windows but then at the start they brought out thousands of Turkey/Galatasaray flags, this about half a week after the anniversary. There are pictures of women smiling for pictures with the flags with toddlers, utter vermin. On the way out some toothless cunt tried to chase us from outside a pub (a minibus with 14 Leeds), lad at the back opened the door, hit him in the face, Millwall fan stopped to hold his face and had two coppers jump on him lol8[1].gif

Apparently the club are going to search all the home fans (all away fans at the Den are searched just after the turnstiles) but last time they all came through the corporate zone in a big box, the club know only two or three clubs will sell out away support there and it helps the home team so they won't do anything.
