Firstly who the hell is Patrick Viera, and Secondly what is the point of this thread?

Maybe I should think about that first question, I dont think I want to know who that guy is, if he has stuff leaking through the front of his shirt.

I did a search on Google and apparently he is a soccer player for a European team. Could be a famous one.

No wonder none of us Americans know who he is!  Big grin

For all those who don't know: Patrick Viera is the captain of Arsenal FC, a soccer team from London. Arsenal is one of the best teams in England and one of the major powers of european soccer.

Back to the question: I've wondered about that stuff too. I always thought it was just water, and that the shirt is made of a fabric that turns dark when wet. But if it is something else, I have no idea what it is.

I found out the answer to this a while back. It is good 'ol water - he drinks from the bottle and squeezes some on his neck as a kind of superstitious 'good luck' thing. I've seen other Arsenal players do the same thing too. Maybe a bib is in order! Big grin

I guess I was right then. Ryanb741 is also right that Viera is not the only player to do that. I just watched the highlights of Arsenal vs. Middlesborough and noticed that Ljungberg had it too, and I've seen it on other players at other times.

It's water in a small "patch" attached to the shirt on the chest, it can't be anything else as other liquids are probably banned, it's an Arsenal thing.  Big grin

I think that's fairly typical of a girlie English football team. Much better to watch the German sides who don't bother with any of that kind of nonsense.  Big grin

Ah, but Bayern Munich (you'll find it easier to attack them Andreas) have always played the stylish football for which Germany is renowned. It reminds me of the oft-heard cry from Brazilian football fans when watching their national team: "It's just like watching Bayern Munich" as they dazzle with interchangeable total-football.

Of course, total football was copied by the Dutch from the German example of the 1960's and early seventies, when you would often find the German players swapping their positions. I remember that glorious time when Gerd Muller popped up in goal, saving four penalties in a three minute spell when Germany were under pressure from that most useless of teams, England. Naturally, Germany went on to score 10 goals at the other end, mainly due to the 12 year old Harald Schumacher coming on as a late substitute.

oh nonono...*COUGHCOUGHCOUGH*, one of the best, certainly, or as you put it: NOT one of the best?? No I'll never dispute that!

Come on Banco, not slapstick fantasies, stick to facts, there's more than enough to praise German football.
I'll gladly remind you of 5-1, every red-blooded English male still remembers that one as one of England's most glorious days in history!!!!!!!! YESSSSS, my preciousssssss...ups sorry, that was from another movie... Big grin

Come on, Arsenal@LHR, if you're going to join in this discussion, you've got to be on the side of Germany. Big grin

Besides, Arsenal have always struggled in Europe, unlike the Germans. Look at Bayer Leverkusen, a side that came from nowhere and reached the Champions League final. You couldn't imagine Charlton Athletic doing that, could you?

A poor effort, Andreas - you've got to do much better than that.

Think about England's long history, inventors of the game and so on. Two World Wars and One World Cup and all of that (now if you get that in I will be impressed), unbeaten by anyone outside of the British Isles for 70 years, better than Germany at the moment.

Must do better old boy.  Big grin

After all, I can go on and on about the mighty Germany.

Yep and that's the problem, YOU got tons of facts to go for you, even without going too deep into history, now I need to get out my history books, and even then.....I mean, winning ONE world cup using the help of countries like Switzerland and Russia just 21 years after the terrible losses of WW2, with people sitting in the audience who had actually witnessed WW1, that is a real achievement for the inventors of the game, don't you think so? Germany could have never done this (and it didn't, fortunately). Was that good? All in one sentence?

Now the players, hmmm, there was once a good goalie, Trautmann, oh wait, that was one of them damned Krauts, in recent times, there was this singer, something like spice woman or so, good free kicks, oh no wait, it was her husband but they went off to Spain to get a healthy tan.

Indeed Kirkie, but none of the English teams can hold a candle to the might of Scottish football. Obviously Celtic and Rangers would both walk the English Premier League, but I think it goes further than that, with even little Berwick Rangers showing their English cousins how football should be played.

The thing is, Kirkie, that you're now cut off from the Great British love-in in World Cup qualification. That limits your chances somewhat, because you'll be playing just another international side, rather than the evil Sassenachs, the devious Welsh, and the peaceable Northern Irish.

It can't be water. It is too thick and you can see that it is oozing out of the front, not just being absorbed into the fabric.
