Gareth Bale[edit]

  • (Reverted 1 edit by Jaceknow (talk): WP isn't the place to advertise YouTube clips. (TW))
It is not my clip. It seems to be an official Real Madrit clip

Bits and pieces[edit]

1 - Hmmmm... remember our intro-approaches discussion last week? Ovinod said "I'll work in those intros asap", not only has he not done that as of today (three days i believe since he replied) but also my/your message concerning that has been summarily removed from his page. Like i said, screw it, he can write bugger all to replace what he has removed or (for example) "Rui Patrício was voted Robocop of the century in the last eight World Cups" for all i care, completely gutted by this.

2 - Speaking of feeling gutted, was about to write another WP:FOOTY report but then visited the community page to find out ZERO replies to my last have been written ONE WEEK later (Ovinod does not count because i already knew his opinion), wonderful! So, i'll report to you directly: User:Royroydeb has started creating a new category, LIGA I FOOTBALLERS, when LIGA I PLAYERS (100% the same) already exists, care to communicate with him (he'll be notified of this of course, since i highlighted his name)?

Cheers, happy week --AL (talk) 23:00, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

  • In regards to AL's comment, when I meant ASAP, it clearly wasn't quick enough for him. It may mean a few hours, or 2/3 days, but clearly he's in a hurry, something surprising for someone who's leaving in 12 days. Anyways I have been bombarded with work and final exams these past few days hence why I haven't managed to accomplish what I promised. Also I am free to remove any content from my talk page, especially after we came to an agreement. Funny how he mentioned I removed your/his messages from my talk page, after all, he did the same with mine from his page.

Regards, --Ovinod (talk) 05:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

  • I clearly have jumped to conclusions about #1, i have already presented my sincere apologies to Mr.Ovinod, hopefully he'll accept them. --AL (talk) 11:57, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

More on item #1: i have seen two intros constructed by Ovinod, Hugo Almeida and Rui Patrício: to avoid my so-called repetitions he engaged in detail which should not be present in an intro, and also used nicknames in the text ("Quinas" being the nickname for the Portuguese team), which is completely wrong for an intro in my (and WP's i wager) opinion. I could not resist it and also contributed/cleaned (mind you Ovinod and Matty, i did not REMOVE anything like it was done previously to me, i COMPOSED), if i am reverted again now i give you both my word of honour as a (non)scout, i stay put. But please Matty, compare both versions.

Note: Ovinod has been notified of this follow-up on his page, like i should have done the first time around. --AL (talk) 15:09, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Naming conventions[edit]

Hi, thanks for letting me know about the naming conventions on WP:NCPDAB. Upon looking into this matter further, there appears to be thousands of articles which incorrectly do not use the comma. I have changed a few of these but as I do all my edits manually this is very time consuming. I was wondering if you knew any automated editing tools which could make this task easier.

Yeah, but I won't be here on the Wikipedia forever and I suppose that there will be at least one unregistered user that will ruin the pages at one point, and besides me and one other guy there is no one else looking up for these pages.

Doubt / Updates[edit]

1 - if no one can prove that Daniel Guerrero Gómez has played in the Hong Kong First Division League (, not only it is not reliable but even if it was it does not contain any data on that, or did not last time i checked it;, which i just added, also does not have anything), this article must be deleted right?

2 - have you had time to compare both intro versions regarding the Portuguese players yet? I feel like Ovinod has summarily decided to cease all conversation with me like soooooooooooo many users, makes me sad to end on that note but what can i do?

Happy Sunday --AL (talk) 01:30, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Ah, and when i asked "Do you have any proof Guardado will stay with Leverkusen?", received no reply of course. Seven days to go... --AL (talk) 04:04, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

More: 1 - checked FOOTBALLDATABASE.EU, it shows him playing for Kitchee but with blanks in the games/goals fields; 2 - thanks for having a look. But what i meant was looking at those AND mine previous, and see why they merited to be summarily removed; 3 - my thoughts too (loan return), but what i meant is why did i merit to be insulted? --AL (talk) 16:37, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Still regarding #2 (i commented on that with you, but never asked a direct question), and later will convey your response (YES or NO suffices) to Ovinod: If i create intros for players that are "word for word similar" (with the exception of the tournaments and the national teams of course), if it is done in my words like WP asks of us is it a wrong edit like Ovinod says it is (it's not repetitive if it's in DIFFERENT articles methinks)? I fail to see where.

Continues to move page after page after after page (like here, sometimes he'll get it right, most of the times i fear he won't. His "explanatory" summaries were 99,999999999999% of the times vague to say the least, now he does not even bother with them.

Reply / Other thoughts[edit]

1 - Regarding Juanfran (footballer, born 1985), game was annulled by FIFA. He did play and score, but stats do not count now, it's all in reference #20 (in Spanish, but it's A.O.K reliability-wise). Speaking of article, i see you've "met" User:Mateka9911, does not write one summary/PC update and, per his page, has had his share of warnings...

2 - What's your intake of José Luis Gómez Pérez's tag being changed by a fellow user? Were you notified of that?

3 - Still in honours and Snowman's approach, i'm trying not to be utterly nonplussed but it's difficult, Jordi Alba SCORES in the UEFA Euro 2012 Final and, since the honour was not referenced in the prose, it was removed? If you look into the current version of the article, i've browsed the web for some refs and will add some more today, but some wiki-rules are very difficult to understand (this meaning i never doubt Snowman's better judgement, he's just enforcing the rules, i am just saying some rules are W-R-O-N-G!).

Attentively (P.S. my abandonment of the project may take a little more than originally expected, i'm trying to remove in all (or most) of the Spanish/Portuguese footballers and replace it with, i'll notify you when i'm "ready"). --AL (talk) 23:09, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Getting beyond ridiculous now, he moved Bruno Pereirinha's page to "Pereirinha", it would be like moving Wayne Rooney's page to "Rooney", or Barack Obama's to "Obama". Ah, please note that Pereirinha is not a nickname, it's his REAL surname.

José Luis Gómez Pérez and other Lglukgl additions[edit]

Hi Matty, MYS "here".

I was talking to AL about the user mentioned above (he also created the page mentioned), and I have some questions to you:

1: José Luis Gómez Pérez isn't fully pro, but some other user removed the "nominated for deletion" template from him, arguing that he passes WP:GNG. However, he doesn't pass the WP:FOOTY, and he should be removed (I think).

2: Can we do something with this guy (Lglukgl)? He returned after a break, and is still doing some wrong edits, creating poor pages and all we told you before. After reading to WP:CIR, I'll not help this guy anymore, but I'll watch his contributions anyway, just to be sure that his additions will only "survive" if they are decent enough. Also, I told AL that he seems to be searching the whole WP for another poor page who wasn't created by him and point some errors (just like: "Look, the guy made a mistake!" or "The English of this page is as poor as mine!"). I think he's trying to justify his errors by pointing others, and I don't like it.

Thanks for your help, MYS77 18:23, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

On Spessato i added a empty section then i will complete that table.

On Kelic i added the correct caps and goals (season over ) according to soccerway →

Bryan Ruiz[edit]

Hello Matty, could you please have a look at the edits being made by Hawaiifive0 (talk · contribs) on Bryan Ruiz... Ruiz is not on loan at PSV any more and while I will admit that he will not be staying at Fulham, he's still contracted to them until they make an announcement on his future. Thanks, JMHamo (talk) 10:04, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Searching for photos[edit]

Hey, Mattythewhite. Is there a page where I can request photos of footballers? I really need photos for the players of my favorite team, FC Petrolul Ploiești, it's one of the best teams in Romania right now and I think that at least the important players should have photos. Most of the Romanian sport sites have the "all rights reserved", so I can't find any free-license photos. I would need the help of an expert. 8Dodo8 (talk · contribs) 12:06, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Blocking conditions[edit]

Hey Matty, how are you?

What conditions allows us to block an user? Vandalism is one of them, of course, but there's other conditions?

After reading WP:BLOCK, I saw some things that Lglukgl do that fills the criteria (overlinking, disruptive edits) and these two verses: "Blocks should be used to encourage a more productive, congenial editing style within community norms" and "persistent posts of unreferenced, poorly or incorrectly referenced, or potentially defamatory information about living persons" fill perfectly into his errors. And also, we've already started the blocking process in my opinion, we've warned him more than once.

Thanks, MYS77 01:38, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Speaking from the "wikidead": you should definitely have another go at Snowman and his summary removal of honours, even if sourced in the prose, last victim was Adrián López Álvarez, four or five were ref'd in the storyline but he removed them nonetheless, as the international goals (in this case "goal") chart, his goal against Serbia was ref'd ONE LINE above the chart, he could not care less.

No need to reply me, "reply" him for WP's improvement. I repeat, maybe a consensus was reached that said honours needed to be directly sourced in the due section (thus Snowman is only enforcing it), but this needs to be changed no? YOU are an administrator too and you say there is no harm in ref'ing honours in the storyline alone, something does not add up coherence-wise.

Regards, AL -- (talk) 20:56, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

  • My oversight, apologies to GS in order. Yes, now he has the custom of adding a tag, he removed them altogether in the past (but the international goal for Mr. Álvarez he did not tag, he removed, and it was ref'd in prose). Thanks for your help overall, and thank you GS as well. -- (talk) 22:44, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

If you want block me do it but before see this [3] page.--Lglukgl (talk) 21:22, 17 July 2014 (UTC) That is a distr.edit

Hey, I'm here again bothering you. Dunno why you didn't replied me, but that's ok. About the user above, he's still doing disruptive edits, and recently pointed his errors as my fault(?). I'll transcript his phrase below:
Hello Mys Yesterday you said go to sleeep so i made incomplete edit yesterday but tomorrow i will have complete these edits.
I know the WPlivescore but that match was orrible (Gremio-Goias) so the automatic score for a BAD BAD BAD match was 0-0. I added the result at the 80 minute.I told you once that i 'm a sudemerican football fan but that match was ORRIBLE.
On Portuguesa i haven't done vandalism or distr.edits i 've added the correct result + report + correct information. Ah is not Portuguesa - Ponte Preta it is Ponte Preta - Portuguesa. Ah in the future i will create AGAIN Passo Das Emas Stadium.
Also, Passo das Emas' discussion was pretty clear about merging, and I'm still trying to figure it out what's ORRIBLE (maybe is another language, I sincerely don't know but AL and I used to call this ANGLISH). Thanks, MYS77 01:18, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, and just to complement, it's not the first time he disrespects WP:LIVESCORES, I've already warned him but it seems it's better for him to point his errors as my fault. Thanks, MYS77 02:02, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

If he is interested he can see here →[4] why this mess? For the 100... time find a reliable reasons for block me (WP.Competency or other) but i'm not destroing WP with vandalism distr.edits MYS. --Lglukgl (talk) 01:38, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

No Worries, just as long as you no I made a mistake I really did think the deal had gone through, I myself get very frustrated when editors keep changing teams when deals haven't even be made and find myself constantly reminding editors about waiting until it actually happens (if it ever does.)

Honours in the 'Honours' section should be directly referenced as per WP:BLP and WP:V. There was a relatively recent discussion at WP:BLPN where that was confirmed by the experts, including another admin. GiantSnowman 11:51, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Matty, i knew that reply was going to happen, my query is why not re-discuss it? It makes ZERO sense to source that (example follows) one guy scored in the UEFA Euro 2012 Final (Jordi Alba) in the storyline, then remove the honour. -- (talk) 16:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)


I decide to make this an apology to you Matty as I was out of order doing that and I am sorry. This should be able to stay so that other people can apologise if they make mistake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Euanmorgan0710 (talkcontribs) 18:49, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

(don't forget to look up, to the message titled "Unworthy contents / moves", i also wrote new stuff there) 1 - mind boggling! I thought we were not supposed to write divisions of clubs in intros, and after what i saw Struway2 (a user beyond all doubt, i vouch for that) do in Vitorino Antunes i really don't know, what gives?

2 - did i do alright stopping this guy in this tracks (please see here in Fabrice Olinga? Not the first time he writes unencyclopedical stuff (origins of nickname) in several African players, even if ref'd. If you, reading his last version, think it's encyclopedical, then forgive my overzealous approach and reinstate the "goodies" please.

3 - vandalism rampant in Licá, don't know why (Portuguese obscure player, never harmed a soul), but some idiots who also must hate F.C. Porto (sound familiar man?) keep screwing his page, and now they (they? he?) have stepped up their game. Human garbage, pure and simple. --AL (talk) 01:03, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Cheers --AL (talk) 00:51, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

  • And another two mails. --AL (talk) 03:19, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

And this page move (Hallelujah, not YUCHENG48 now, but also without one word of explanation)? Fernando (footballer)?! Mate, i think from Spain and Portugal alone we will find 10/20 footballers with WP article. --AL (talk) 16:53, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

When you return from (hopefully it's only that) your wiki-break, please refer to Snowman to ask him about my reasons to leave forever (or visit WP:FOOTY, the discussion titled "Sergio Busquets and Míchel Salgado", for more "fun"). Nice to know you, bye and kindest of regards --AL (talk) 19:07, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Glad you returned, do you have any thoughts on this message and the previous one? Please reply here, and be cryptic when required (the mails situation), i don't want to enter WP as reader (it's very radical and idiotic of me to have said that i would never even do that) and find insults on my anon take page.

Other than that it's goodbye, have a nice one wikiwise or not! -- (talk) 14:40, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Yucheng48 messaged. The division was already present in that article, but you'd need to ask Struway directly for their reasoning. Agree with your removal at Olinga and I've watchlisted it, same with Licá. I've not been online much this week so sorry for being out of the loop, if there's something I've missed please contact me again. Mattythewhite (talk) 22:01, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the swift reply. You only missed the situation about our mail exchange, which resulted in a user being blocked, did you (and your joint investigations) reach any conclusions on whether the account and the anon IPs were the same?

As i'm out of the project, my doubt stems from sheer curiosity. Oh, and by the way, about the "Sergio Busquets and Michel Salgado" WP:FOOTY discussion, the blocked guy returned TODAY and was handed an harsher block whilst the other two main "offenders" were not, still refuses to acknowledge any responsibility and instead continues to complain about wiki-bullying by posses and cliques.

Cheers -- (talk) 23:44, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I also have been trying to get someone to convey to that blocked user (PANHEAD2014) that i have nothing against him personally, the run-in i had with him was just the last straw, it was HIGH TIME to leave because i was really stressed out (i have to acknowledge it had to be as much my fault as the others'). Have been trying that because if i wrote it myself he would accuse me (again) of harassment, but still to no avail, none of the people contacted think it would do any good. -- (talk) 23:54, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, due to being so busy I didn't ask the other users, but I see Fixed4u has been indef blocked anyway. And the João Mário situation is sorted now, I think. Mattythewhite (talk) 17:16, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

I see, thanks a million for all your assistance, kindness and hard work throughout the years. I don't know if i'll ever return, but most definitely am going to take a very long wikinap! Take care. -- (talk) 17:46, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Of course I hope you do return, but most importantly take care of yourself. Mattythewhite (talk) 23:39, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I have taken the league in which the players act, however, a user follows reversing and entering "La Liga" instead of "Spain", specifically in these cases: Tiago Mendes and Guilherme Siqueira. Still, this user is likely sockpuppets this account:

Luca Havern Picture.[edit]

I took the picture on 16 August 2011, away at Colwyn Bay. I think the 24th was the day I uploaded it. cheers, TheHydeTiger 17:04, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Grammar help[edit]

Back, but now "really back": Matty, i'm working these days, translating a book from English (proper, not US) to Portuguese. Piece is about 400 pages long, and i'm doing pretty well after starting last Sunday (was?), but now i'm stuck, browsed the web like crazy (including a site that contains links to the Oxford Dictionary if i'm not mistaken!) and found nothing...

Can you please tell me, in a nutshell, what does the idiom "Scuffed at the edges" mean? For further help, although most likely you won't need it, it refers to the city of London (being "genteel and scuffed at..."). Thank you very much in advance, keep it up here, there and everywhere! -- (talk) 05:28, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

P.S. I know this is not the place for this, if you can't help me i totally understand. -- (talk) 05:31, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
