    Yep. Fucking hate the fact that you don't hear it. This superb video puts it into perspective.

    They could not take Russia as a whole, it is far too vast and a different animal to the rest of Europe in it's politics, weather, geographics. The Germans knew that, hence why Generalplan Ost only went as far as the Urals. Even still, Stalin was willing to put every man, woman and child in between himself and the Wehrmacht which is actually seen with how they fought the war, sacrificing casualties for time. So if Moscow was taken or Stalingrad was Stalin just going to give in and capitulate there and then? Like hell he would've. We would've seen the USSR fighting to the bitter end like the Ger

    Tiny little history buff nitpick here, sorry Heron. Yes, in terms of supplies and in the Atlantic. But there were more British and British Empire troops in contact with the enemy until well after D-Day. The US first fought the Germans/Italians in Operation Torch and they were, from the books I've read, actually pretty naff.

    Well, well, well. The last few pages have been quite a read as an ambassador of the HET and a 3rd year history student. Just applied to do History of War for my MA too. But I digress. Churchill was a pro-Zionist. Historian William D Rubinstein says in one of his many journal articles that 'Churchill was among the best friends the Jews ever had as a British political leader'. He also says that there was no objective reason for him to be so philo-Semitic, he was so even pre WWI. He opposed the 1905 Aliens Act so much he defected from the Tories because of it and he shared platforms
  5. Aye, Fulham are a given to come back so would like to see Blackburn and one of either QPR, WBA or Forest to come up with them. Preferably QPR or Forest so it's not the same teams over and over again.
  6. Yeah the fans seem against the idea, should've said. Dunno who their fans will accept. Given the board went for a manager who the fans didn't want in the summer and it's been as disastrous as it has been, I'm unsure what they'll do. If they weren't in so much trouble I'd have seen them giving it to Ferguson to the end of the season.
  7. Well they seem against that VĂ­tor Pereira that's been linked. No idea who they could go for. Don't think Lampard would work and unsure if Rooney would leave Derby yet either.
  8. Hodgson will have them playing disgusting football but it'll get results. Going to be some battle this. Have to beat Everton.

    If in the not so distant future we're battling it out with Man City for the league, if Man City pipped us to it they'd rub it in our faces and cream themselves at the fact that we didn't win it. If we won it they'd perpetuate a narrative of it being a disgrace to football that such torrid human rights abusers were allowed in the PL in the first place without any irony whatsoever.

    If we ever win a cup or a title in the coming years they'll convince themselves it was lucky in some way. If we signed Haaland or his equivalent they'd convince themselves he's shit. They're fucking pathetic.

    Rarely have a look at this thread as these small time bell ends don't really cross my mind anymore, but they are hilarious. The takeover has finished them, NUFC360 et al's tweets are shared in that thread of theirs as if they're following them all which renders them desperate to spin anything that is done by the club as a negative. Anything NUFC related = bad. Anything SAFC related = good. No inbetweens and no exceptions. They're creaming themselves stupid at the fact that the deserved criticism that the Saudi regime gets means NUFC gets negative press too, given that they revel at
