Quick work there, rgos. Only the 3rd anniversary too. Work must have started the next day [or perhaps even before the “crash”…]
IS there a list of the 189 or 193 or 196 Dutch citizens, with their ages?August 6, 2017 at 2:26 pm #850291

A particularly silly psy-op in London, involving a burning plastic waste bin on a subway train, brings out a brilliant line from an unruffled crisis actor who “escaped” in the panicked rush up the “only staircase” [Grenfell Tower allusion….]
“…it was like Hillsborough, kind of…”
Your psy-op confirmed.October 2, 2017 at 6:26 am #850832
Faking injuries of footballers is an easy way to weight the result – how can we ever know who’s really suffering from a groin strain, broken leg or….. the effects of a car crash. Try this fake looking one for size…
Seems like we have a pre-wrecked Chrysler Cruiser placed neatly against a traffic column, with the result….
Sergio Aguero is facing a long lay-off after the Manchester City striker was injured in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday — less than 48 hours before Saturday’s clash with Chelsea.
Reports in Argentina this morning suggested Aguero will be out for at least two months after suffering fractured ribs when the taxi in which he was travelling hit a pillar.
City confirmed Aguero was today travelling back to Manchester to be assessed, before he is officially ruled out of the game against title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
City did not confirm what injuries the 29-year-old sustained but if they are serious, it would be a major setback for Pep Guardiola.
Or perhaps just to keep this bent sport in the news.
“The City forward was in Holland on his day off and has sustained injuries. He will return to Manchester this morning and his status will be checked ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Chelsea.”
Dutch police confirmed two men were involved in a car crash in the De Boelelaan area of Amsterdam and were taken to hospital.
Good old Dutch police. Ever helpful. Any other “injuries” at Manchester City? Certainly.
The news of Aguero’s car accident comes a day after City announced that left-back Benjamin Mendy had ruptured knee ligaments and would be sidelined for a lengthy spell.
France international Mendy, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he joined City from Monaco for £52million, was set to have surgery today after seeing a specialist in Barcelona.
Losing Aguero would be a huge blow to City.
Boston Marathon style “surgery”? Place your bets now please….

Mmm, superstar Messi’s best mate Sergio Aguero. Or should I say, Sergio Agueroooooooooooo!!!
a central figure in one of English football’s most dramatic, all-time, staged moments when Manchester City won the league for the first time in 44 years.
From 1 min, 28 secs for the injury time winner.
A fair observation on football injuries I’d say xileffilex.
Just as Manchester City go odds-on favourites to win the League their star striker is apparently injured. Oooh, the drama.
I sometimes think some ‘agent’ players are kept in cotton wool ‘injured’ for years practicing set pieces and then rolled out when it’s time.
Looking at Aguero’s car there did remind me a bit of the blue Vauxhall from the (football referencing) Lee Rigby attack. Worth a mention, maybe.
Man. City won the league following the Rigby attack four years ago.
Blue teams have won the league since then.
We’ve been in an unprecedented ‘blue’ phase (never before four blue teams on the trot ) in English football history, as it goes.
So, anyway, Agueros car. Blue bumps in to blue and white.
Blue and white wins, I reckon.
Bonus moment. Talking of Argentinian footballers and Lionel Messi. This moment really made me laugh.
It’s actually harder to miss than to score for Messi on the rebound, but he does.
I think it’s one of those rare little moments when the fix exposes itself a little. It’s a bit embarrassing. For a moment it’s obvious.
Then the game carries on.
