9 Jun

The Mittens of Disapproval Are OnJack Warner bought some prime time on Trinidad and Tobago television last week to air a message he called “The Gloves Are Off” threatening to air FIFA’s dirty laundry. So was John Oliver gonna let that go by without comment? Hell nah. His response to Jack Warner? “The Mittens of Disapproval Are On” Brilliant.

Sepp Blatter and FIFA: E:60 Reports with Jeremy Schaap

20 May

sepp I’ve been meaning to get this up for the past week, but if you haven’t yet seen the documentary Jeremy Schaap did about FIFA and Sepp, you really do owe it to yourself to watch it. Here’s a link to the ESPNFC site where it’s available in 5 parts.  Prepare to be even more disgusted than you probably already are with this man and his organization. The corruption is so deeply ingrained in FIFA that one has to wonder if it can ever be cleansed. May 29 will see Blatter seeking his 5th term as president at the FIFA Congress in Zurich.  Can anyone beat him and remove this cancer from the beautiful game? It remains to be seen. When FIFA is involved, as we all know, money talks. And the money trail and lack of transparency detailed in this documentary is jaw dropping.

The 6 outfield players who didn’t start worked out with Gareth while Marcelo & Cris trained on their own. We have a Champions League match against Liverpool on Tuesday. Continue reading
