    That's only because it represents New York and New York was named after the Duke of York and future King James II, an Englishman.

    Not the greatest grasp of history there, King James II had a Scottish father and was part of the Scottish "Stuart" dynasty (hence the spelling).

    Interestingly, despite the huge disparity in population, it was a Scottish king (the aforementioneds grandfather) who took over the English throne - not the other way around.

    And New York was originally referred to as New Amsterdam but was traded for the Spice Islands - a sale linked to the creation of the worlds first stock market.

    Knowledge is power, good stuff to read up on.

    Tenuous, I wasn't talking about his father.

    You Scots will try and claim everything, eh?

    This isn't Scot McTominay we are talking about here, friend.

    Scott McTominay is another guy with a Scottish name and a Scottish father.

    Do you even remember the point you are trying to make?

    I'm not sure why you keep bringing people's fathers into this.

    Typical playground arguing tactics, in my opinion.

    New Amsterdam weren't traded. It was occupied by the brits and renamed in New York. It was later re-captured by the dutch and were furthermore renamed into New Orange. This city were later traded for Suriname and the worlds first stock market is a kind of a joke. the only "thing" that they have traded there for over 100 years were slaves

    oh ffs, this thread :lol:

    to bring this btt which is "International friendlies":

    The German FA has announced today that Germany will play against Peru in a friendly in September. Not big news but it's only the 2nd time that both countries play against each. The only one before was at the World Cup 1970 where we won 3-1, thanks to 3 Goals from "the Bomber" himself.

    We probably won't have a manager by then, but nevertheless it should be an interesting one.
