Not surprising though, Turkey is corrupt as balls and they have more than their share of shady wealthy folks willing to through some money towards a vanity project. It's amazing to see the salaries some teams are willing to pay in such poor countries like Russia, Ukraine, China and Turkey.
Stop being racist. United Nations, IMF, World Bank and the CIA all have Russia ranked in the top 10 of all nations in terms of wealth and GDP.

Well above Holland. You're the one living in a poor country.

What the hell are you smoking, Holland has a GDP per capita of above $40000, Russia has a GDP per capita of $20000. Even further: no team in Holland has numerous players on the payroll for over 10 million a year. So your comment misses every target here, but what else is new?


More importantly, Russia is a huge country and you can't really compare the situation of a relatively well of area like Moscow to a third world hellhole like Machkala. The income and standard of living in Machkala is much, much lower than even the absolute worst shithole in all of Europe, yet that team is paying players 20 million a year to party it up while the surrounding people starve. And it would be something else if that team was financed through some wealthy Saudi oil magnate, but instead that team is entirely financed through the criminal exploitation of the poor people living there.

Milan very close to Balotelli.
Or the other way around, I don't know.

You attaching another man's surname to your own first name? That's actual real life. You actually do that.

Your real name is Alen Amcık, but you prefer to be called Alen Messi.


Combined with your very overt proclamation of your love for said man, it's pretty obvious where you'd like to be. And you defend him on this site as if you actually are his wife. If you did that on purpose it would be quite funny actually. But combined with your random bouts of homophobia it's questionable at best. You can't be that overtly gay for another man and then call other people ****ots for staying in shape and healthy.

Monkey chants from some of the DenBosch supporters as Jozy Altidore drew a penalty. Netherlands is one of the last places I'd expect these kinds of chants. Guess you can't avoid these racist mongrels no matter where you go.

Good response from him to ignore and convert the penalty to give AZ a 4-0 lead and net his 20th goal of the season.

I feel ashamed.

Someone before mentioned the Dutch league. Salaries aren't high at all here, a couple of years ago Feyenoord payed some veterans a shitload of money and it was nearly the last thing they did.

The referee just suspended the match.

Probably would have been suspended in the first half if it wasn't for Altidore himself urging the team and ref to play on. This is ludicrous.

Jozy Altidore the young god, he's going to kill it for us in Brazil

Stupid white trash Euros living up to their reputation.

I stayed in Ogdam for a few weeks at my buddy's house. These people atleast in the only pub in town were racist as shit towards blacks and arabs, and it was a town just 40 minutes from Amsterdam.

WTF are you talking about? Alot of the Russian teams are owned by Russian billionares so they have endless amounts of money to waste on players.

I also don't get your rant about Russia and living conditions.. It's such a bizarre argument to make and the same can be said about every league and every sport for that matter..
