    Burger King ? :rolleyes: :poop: They are in serious trouble in Germany because of poor hygiene and unacceptable working conditions. Not as if we didnt know it before but after Mr. Walraffs (do you know him?) TV report we are aware of it again. McDoof were lucky that he didnt show up in one of their restaurants. :D

    I dont think they are biased Sandolf. Chelsea and City do have the best teams in the league and Chelsea just had more spectacular transfers than City so far. (Diego Costa, Fabregas, Luis, Drogba). Perhaps thats why the majority of them sees Chelsea slightly favoured ? Btw - to me Lampard in a City shirts still feels wrong :cautious::D
    Liverpool will have a difficult season, surprisingly good last year they will have to prove that it wasnt a fluke. And I do have my doubts that Mario B. will help to improve the team. Spurs could be this years surprise but apparantly too early to make any predictions about that.:cautious:

    They need to pay 46 % lower taxes than in the US, wow ! :eek:
    And do I get it right that they need to buy Tim Horton to be able to relocate to Canada ? :cautious:

    Our government is screwed. They tax the faak out of the little guys.

    Seems like a strategic merger of sorts.

    It wasnt even what you could call a 'smash and grab', MK Dons were better in every area of the pitch. Utd were absolutely awful.

    Chelsea and Man City have yet to play. I will reserve judgement until at least the first meeting.

    Perhaps you could lecture me again about all this "free stuff" you get for all the taxes you pay as Kanadians for the "free Health Care"? :D

    Poor basturds end up paying less for the same service... (just like Karl Marx would have liked it because the government kills competition by fixing the prices). Rich people can jump the cue and pay full value in the States or got to a private clinic.

    Nobody gets their money's worth... (unless you like near fatal accidents or disease). Nobody faces bankruptcy either.

    As for Burger King buying Tim Hortons, Warren Buffett ( one of the richest Americans), just invested 3 BILLION Dollars in Burger King . I'm pretty sure that they will get some soap and water and clean up their act ! :tup:
    Also Burger King, not a big player in the Breakfast trade, will be more of a player soon . Ain't corporations just plain greedy !
    As a result , Burger King will pay a lot less in taxes with their corporate headquarters in Canada.

    I'm not much on Burger King Restaurants myself. I prefer a 12 inch Submarine Sandwich ( Subway, Blimpie, etc.).
    I've got a new Bojangles Chicken Restaurant nearby, their chicken is marinated in cajun seasonings 12 hrs before it is pressure fried . It puts Kentucky Fried Chicken in 2nd or 3rd place on my list.

    Yep. The U.S. is no longer a Republic. It is a Plutocracy run by the Warren Buffets of the world. Kind of like FC Bayern taking over the Bundesliga. ;)

    I guess that it is becoming a moot point anyway. The only main differentiation between the countries is that there is distinctly less racism, violence and poverty. This may be due to culture. It may also be due to more investment in social programs. Toronto cops shot a black kid to death last year. There were protests, but it didn't turn into Ferguson. You pay your taxes in exchange for living in peace and less corruption.

    Haha Croak. You are correct except... Hoeness went to jail. Those Wall Street bums who caused the crash of 2008 got off totally unpunished.

    Sounds too good to be true PackerFan71.
    On the other hand our CEO, Dietmar Beiersdorfer, is well known for his last minute transfers and Holtby would fit perfectly to his usual strategy to find players who had their first career setback but are still young and good enough to strike back.
    As I mentioned before, he was the one who signed vd Vaart in 2005, and Kompany or Nigel de Jong.
    So here is a little hope that it might happen..... :cautious:;)

    Good for all Chelsea getting rid of a misfire, Milan in need of a striker (who knows Italy might be good for him) Milan are in a bad way these days they could not afford a big fee for a permanent deal but two years.....i think Chelsea would give him a free after that anyway.
