So Everton have just signed a RB from Monaco. A player named Sidibe. "Ah great, a new rb. Just what Everton need!". I decided to have a look on the monaco forums to see what they're saying about the move. Always a bit disconcerting when the fans are especially happy to see a player go. Hope we haven't got a donkey here.

Rooney will join Derby County in January as player / assistant coach to Philip Cocu. Just wondering why he choose that club, wouldn't there be a club in the premier league that would be interested in having him in the team?


good luck on the moving Symbols!

I assume he's treating the Derby job as an initial step towards becoming a coach, rather than as a way of extending his playing career, and I don't see a Prem club being interested in him on those terms. He doesn't strike me as obvious manager material either, but stranger things have happened.

Y'all may laugh about the dysfunctionality of your own leagues, but the Australian one has a new team that doesn't even have a proper base, and won't for several years.

It was literally part of a property developer's scheme...

So Liverpool v Norwich kicks off the new season.

HT: Liv 4-0 (Hanley og; Salah, VVD, Origi)

Liverpool deserve to be ahead but the score's a bit harsh on Norwich, who've been better than it looks

--

FT: Liv 4-1 (Pukki)

Too little too late. Liverpool didnt score but were in 2nd gear with the game already won. Norwich really weren't bad, though.

When you're facing a team like City you can't get downbeat about it. They're something else for sure. Everton'a sounded as exciting as you can imagine. It actually made me glad I was at a christening today.

Yeah, Man City were brilliant. Simple as. In the 1st half West Ham were actually pretty good but once they went in front it was just an avalanche. VAR was all that stopped it being even worse.

Didn't see the Everton game but it sounded very cagey

whoopsie! The roof of the AZ stadium has collapsed due to heavy wind (and possibly due to the heavy solar panels that were placed on it). Their next home match is on Thursday for the Champions League. It will need to be played elsewhere, and probably other upcoming home matches in the next month(s) too.
Fortunately there were no people inside when this happened



 





There's a rumor going on in the press that PSV is trying to get Ribéry. It would be great, but I don't think they will manage to succeed

Yes indeed Holy Fuck, Ribery coming to PSV! Ha, it didn't happen, he was too expensive. Which I could have told them beforehand, but I was never asked



Here's a Google translation of a news article from this morning on the collapsed stadium. Wow, this will be a cesspool that will last for a few months.


Some more background info if you're interested: Look up the names Dirk Scheringa and DSB Bank. He has a history in collapsing



Quote:
Former alderman: Nobody wanted to hear that something was wrong with AZ stadium

What happened in 2006 in Alkmaar? Were matters covered with the mantle of love to realize the AZ football stadium at all costs? There were indeed question marks about safety, but hardly anyone in Alkmaar wanted to hear it.

It seems 2006 all over again in Alkmaar. The discussion about whether the stadium of football club AZ was safe flared up again after a part of the roof collapsed on Saturday. ,, We warned about it at the time. In the meantime, I have requested all documents, investigations and reports from that time from the municipality, "says Victor Kloos, party chairman of OPA, Independent Party Alkmaar, the largest group in the city council.

In 2006, Kloos was alderman for Safety. He fell from his chair when he saw a secret report about the fire safety of the football stadium, which was almost finished at the time. The report circulated in the town hall. "Very special that as an alderman for Safety I didn't have it." That report was from construction and fire expert Ynso Suurenbroek. Suurenbroek commented on fire safety and the robustness of the construction that he described the day after the roof collapsed as a "spaghetti construction". In his view, it was a matter of time before the roof would collapse.

Revoke or leave

Kloos: "It was shortly after the elections and I was an alderman and a council member. Our group asked questions about the robustness of the construction." Kloos got a head start from the mayor and fellow aldermen, because as alderman he had whispered the critical questions to the OPA fraction. "I had to withdraw the questions or I could leave. But I refused." Kloos's attitude was "unusually destructive" and "out of all proportions," the other members of the college ruled. Kloos was rocked and OPA was not allowed to participate in the negotiations for the new college as a punishment.

The sitting college of mayor and aldermen, without the dismissed Kloos, ignored Suurenbroek's report. Kloos: "If I am very honest, I have never really understood why. I think they just didn't get the report at the time. The college just wanted the stadium to come and was not waiting for discussion." Dirk Scheringa, then owner of AZ and financier of the stadium that was named after his DSB Bank, according to Kloos knew about the report from Suurenbroek.

Stamping

OPA gave it up to get the critical report on the agenda. "The city was happy that Scheringa wanted to start this stadium. All of Alkmaar really wanted a new football stadium. We also. The city council had agreed unanimously. There was no majority to discuss Suurenbroek's report, we had made our point and then you become a piss mustache if you go through. Or it is explained as if you are against AZ, and we are not at all."

The construction of the stadium continued, in accordance with the criticized construction. That construction was "optimized" by Ingenieursgroep Romkes BV. Costs had to be cut for millions of euros. The AZ stadium still adorns the company's webpage as an aptitude test. Name giver Simon Romkes sold the company in 2013 and now runs a smaller company with his son. He throws the phone down and refuses to answer questions about the construction of the collapsed roof that he has calculated.

At the municipality of Alkmaar, according to spokeswoman Ellen Duijn, the 2006 reports are being searched for with all their might. According to football club AZ, a building permit has been granted for the solar panels on the roof, which also includes a recalculation for the construction. The municipality has not yet found that permit. However, it appears from the Safety Declaration for the KNVB for the 2019/2020 football season that the building and home supervision department of the municipality last inspected the stadium's "structural safety" in April last year.

Pisket steel

Andries Broersma, who was involved in the construction as a chief engineer and was later asked by the municipality of Alkmaar as the construction supervisor, states that the construction calculations from that time were good. When constructing a project, it is ultimately the contractor who translates the construction drawings, he says. "Then building is also trust. You must assume that the prescribed steel is used and not Romanian piping steel."

According to Broersma, it is impossible to check every screw in and the quality of the steel supplied. Moreover, the necessary things can go wrong during construction. "If a construction worker with a box of bolts at a great height has to connect two profiles with six bolts, and he does not get one properly because the platform is shaking in the wind, he might just hit him." If the bolt fails, the force is distributed to the other five and they are not calculated. "It happens. That is the practice. No builder has the time or money to wait until the wind is quiet again. "

Investigation

It is still unclear why the roof has collapsed. A construction error? A loose bolt? Inferior steel? Wasn't the construction good? OPA is now the largest municipal council in Alkmaar and Kloos wants the bottom stone. "The book was closed after my resignation, but will now open again after thirteen years." He thinks it is still going too far to say that he was right in 2006. "First I want the investigation that makes AZ wait, and I also hope that the Dutch Safety Board starts an investigation. If something alarming comes out of it, the Suurenbroek report must be on the table. Then there is plenty of political discussion again."

Kloos was again the alderman in Alkmaar from 2011 to 2018 and had security in his portfolio for the last four years. Security in the AZ stadium was never an issue at the town hall again. "Apart from the warning we gave at the time, the roof collapsed like a thunderbolt in a clear sky."
