    Watching Northern Ireland v Italy in a World Cup qualifier. Two non-whites playing - both for NI, a team that never had any in its history until half a decade ago. (Remember how we were told after Euro 2012 that future Italian teams would feature more blacks like "Super Mario"? It hasn't...

    2021 US Open

    Most of Djokovic's matches have gone four sets, so he's played a lot of tennis while Medvedev has played so little he should be fresh come the final - assuming he beats Auger-Aliassime. Djokovic has lost a few times to his opponent tonight, Alex Zverev, so making it to the final is not a done deal.

    2021 US Open

    DWFs & the usual demographics that live in NYC chanting "Monfils... Monfils" against Jannik Sinner, an ethnic German from Italy. New York, consistently, has the worst tennis fans on earth. Sinner won in five sets. He looks like he might win a major at some point in his career...unlike crowd...

    Everyone knows that Athletic Bilbao are the pride of the Basque nation. Unlike every other team in Europe they only hire Basques and would prefer to lose with a 'Basque' team than win with foreigners. Right now I'm watching Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona and there are two black guys playing for...

    There are many great sportsmen who've taken a pay cut for the greater good of the team. It's the WHITE thing to do! Anyway, here's an explanation of Messi & Barca (it's a bit annoying as he tries - and fails - to be funny)

    Barcelona wages? Do PSG have to pay Barca or something? I don't understand. If not, and Messi insists on a ridiculous amount then that just shows he's not interested in challenging or proving himself.

    "only paris has the money...to sign that kind of player" I thought it was a free transfer. Is Messi so greedy that he still cares about $$$$$$?

    A waste of Messi's talent to play in a mediocre league like the French. I'd have preferred he go to Serie A where there's more competition. If he ends his career at PSG he'll have only played for two super rich teams surrounded by the best players thus making it difficult to judge him from an...

    Maybe clement can answer this but what happens if a Martinique or Guadeloupe player becomes good enough to play for France? After all, each is a département of France so presumably they can be called up for the national team. If I'm not mistaken once a UK player has played for one of the four...

    EURO 2020

    Kane was poor in the final, though it wasn't entirely his fault as his midfield were completely outclassed by the Italians. I think he's overrated in general. As for his name, the people of the British Isles are so intermixed it doesn't matter to me. What I don't like is when people who haven't...

    EURO 2020

    Fascinating stats on penalties and race by a Vox Day reader: Your posts about the Euro final and black players not being composed under pressure got me thinking about historical penalty results for England. I went back to the 1996 Euro and compiled the data for their eight shootouts since that...

    2021 Wimbledon

    At this point maybe the only thing that can stop him is a ban on non-vaccinated players. That said, Nadal is still a US Open threat and could win more French titles.

    Maybe we will now, finally, see an end to the stutter step penalty.

    EURO 2020

    There has never been a funnier ending to a sports tournament in history. It would not surprise me at all if 'woke' Gareth Southgate put blacks on at the end of penalties (3rd, 4th, and 5th) so that the winning penalty - to be remembered & repeated on TV for the next 50 years - was scored by a...

    EURO 2020

    No. Whites pushing a "racial justice" (Gary Neville's words on ITV) agenda is far worse than non-whites doing it.

    Messi had a poor match but a very good tournament overall. The pitch was in bad condition with lots of bobbling. This seems to be a common problem at Copa America tournaments.

    EURO 2020

    If I'm not mistaken lack of representation of an ethnic group, race, or religion is, in and of itself, proof of systemic racism in the UK. Yet where are all the Asian players for England? There are more people of Asian than African extraction in England. In the English-speaking world blacks are...

    EURO 2020

    I was away most of the weekend so I didn't see the England & Denmark wins but based on highlights the Ukrainians were out of their depth. They conceded a goal after four minutes, then two minutes into the second half conceded an unnecessary free kick that resulted in a goal. England have not...

    EURO 2020

    Belgium eliminated by Italy. With Spain beating Switzerland in penalties that means England is the last of the multiculti teams. Unfortunately, they are favoured to make it to the final as their side of the draw is quite soft. Ukraine got lucky, and the other two potential opponents are...

    EURO 2020

    Chadli, the only Arab for Belgium came on, touched the ball once - almost set up a goal - then went off injured. Arab fragility?

    EURO 2020

    I think I might have to go with the more diverse Sweden team v Ukraine for the simple reason that I think they have a better chance of upsetting England in the quarter finals.

    Serena Williams wahh wahh !

    I don't want to get my hopes up too much but if she doesn't win this year's US Open I don't think Serena will beat Margaret Court's record.

    Looks like Serena's Wimbledon is about to end in the 1st round due to sliding and falling on the court.

    EURO 2020

    Funny you should mention that because I thought of frederic38 saying that just before Pogba took his penalty. As Alfie says the stats might not back that up (at least in England, though that country is often an outlier) but it feels true for the continent. Any time I've seen clips of Mbappe...
