Have we ever had an Argentine at the club before?

Danny Bergara is Uruguayan.

And I think it would be disgraceful for anyone to fly the Argentina flag at NYS!

The Malvinas Were given to Argentina when they achieved independance from Spain by Spain. The British simply stole the so called falklands isles in the 19th century. Historically politically and geographically, the islands belong to Argentina.

F00king hell. Too late for yet another political debate as I'm going to bed. But we landed on The Falklands in 1690, a long time before the first Spanish.

We were the first nation to successfully establish a colony there.

The people of The Falklands wish to remain British - ergo, they are British.

The Spanish word 'Malvinas' is a corruption of the French word 'Malouines'. The original European settlers of the Islands were fishermen from St. Malo, France. Argentina has never ever had sovereignty over the Islands.

The Spanish settlers on the Islands were kicked out in ca. 1832 by the US Navy, not the Royal Navy. The British stole nothing. The islands were settled in the 1840s by British farmers and fishermen. Thus the Falkland Islands have been a British Dependency longer than Texas has been part of the US. Both territories were settled under similar circumstances.

If you believe that the Falklands are Argentinian, then you should also argue that Texas is part of Mexico. Should you wish to press home this point in any bar from San Antonio to Austin to Dallas to Houston, I suggest you come well armed and have your last will and testament in good order.

Extremely excited to see our first Argentine player playing and (hopefully) scoring at the New York stadium, but I must agree that an Argentine flag might not be the best idea in an English football ground given the current situation over on the Falklands and would be seen as poor taste by almost everybody I would assume.

Maybe a personalised song or some other thing to show our appreciation for Becchio if he bangs them in for the Millers.

We moved on from the Cod wars to fly the Iceland flag for Arnie so why can't we do the same here. Fish and chips took a real battering in the 1970s.

Cam, I think they actually outplayed us and deserved the win. If we'd have used our possession better and been more lethal in front of the net then it would have been a different story we were reading in the morning chip paper.

The cod wars aren't still ongoing though.

I went to Cuba last year and had the pleasure of debating the malivinas or Falklands with 2 argies. Although the debate could have gone wrong we concluded that many good men on both sides died needlessly due to politics and the unwillingness of politicians to talk.

Then they invaded. And rightly we defended. I pointed out to them that their politicians only ever bring the Falklands up to deflect issues. Sure enough they declared a nonpayment on bonds soon after. On the geography I said that Argentina is closer to Chile and we are closer to France so that is a non argument.

By the end of the fortnight we were calling each other hermano which means brother in Spanish. He was an Argie Malvinas veteran and I changed his views using dialogue. He changed mine too.

So will you be protesting that we have an Argentine player, or will you cheer when he scores? You certainly seem to have a conflict of interests with this signing.

Ellis appears to be a one man nation. Heseems tto like everybody being exactly like him.same colour same religion, same politics probably same jumper. Of course you can't have an Argie flag.i'm a bit concerned myself because my great grandad was Irish so he might want to send me back as well.

Of course I will be cheering when he scores! He will get my full unwavering 100% support, as does every Miller. I have NO conflict of interests with this signing.

My problem lies with their government, not their footballers. And that extends to their flag. I think it would be in awful taste to have their flag flying at NYS.

I have NEVER on here - or anywhere else - belittled someone or spoke unfavourably of someone because of their skin colour. But you just keep making those things up to suit your agenda. As I said, you are one of those people who claims someone is racist if they dare to speak out against Islam. That is fine, bothers me not.

I don't have a religion, I don't wear jumpers, and I love listening to different viewpoints regarding politics.

I love the fact some people agree with me, some people are at the othe rend of the scale to me, and some sit somewhere in the middle.

It makes for good debate. But it doesn't mean I wouldn't argue the toss and

Argentinian players were pictured holding up a banner saying "Las Malvinas belongs to Argentina" or similar just before the World Cup so I don't think it's "in the past".

I was surprised that sponsors allowed global commodities like Messi to get involved with that shameful stunt at the World Cup and more so that so little was made of it.

Cheer the chap on, not his fault and he probably doesn't give a fig but I'm in the no camp when it comes to putting up an Argentina flag. They have caused nothing but issues for us in that part of the world and are actively lobbying other countries to disrupt British shipping in the area.

Who is trying to force that opinion upon the world?

Is this roly telling yet more lies? You should be a politician, you lie constantly, you twist things to suit your agenda and you talk utter ****e. You would fit in well in the Labour party. Why don't you run for local elections, I am sure they will need some new councillors in the not too distant future.

The things I say that you call bullsh it are usually things that you don't understand, or have no knowledge of.

You have said I am talking rubbish when all I have done is posted quotes from the Qu'ran or Hadiths, things that are factually correct.

And then you have tried to twist every comment I have made into a racist one, despite me pointing out on several occasions that is not what I said.

And then you further this pathetic finger pointing by crying to the mods, "Oh please ban him."

Not a court in the land, even one supported by the pandering to the Muslim community SYP could convict me of any offence for anything I have said on

You discount the Holocaust as an indicator that your view that Christians are 'nicer' might be a bit off target, because it happened 70 odd years ago, but get hot under the collar over a conflict that happened 32 years ago.

32 years is short enough to be in the memory of most people, 70 odd isn't.

Plus, my view on that is also down to Argentina's continued stance on the Falklands - as highlighted by their footballers at the World Cup and their President, Cristina Fernandez in recent years. Bullying tactics.

Plus, I don't see the Holocaust as an act of Christianity. I see it as the actions of a mad man hell bent on world domination, who according to LOADS of leading historians and written evidence had given up his Christian faith and was in fact an Atheis
