For the first time ever, women football players will feature in a videogame through EA Sports' FIFA 16!!





Some reactions from the lady footy players themselves + More detailsCollapse )

Honestly, when the other girls talked in other languages, gave me goosebumps! Twitter + the entire social media sphere's been going nuts about this for the past few hours, beware of the sexist jerks tho!
 
 
 
 
 
telegraph.co.uk's rundown on the FIFA scuffle as it is now

so far elections are still on for Friday UEFA is really pushing hard for them to be postponed until the air is cleared. However Asian groups are giving the go ahead so we'll see (given interpol's investigation into Asian gambling rings... well, who knows)

telegraph.co.uk's s play-by-play as it happened the swiss are supposedly going to question blatter within days however seeing as how he is a slimy slimy snake he will likely slither off to somewhere safe

(and even if he was indicted... he could always be replaced by... platini who is justifying Blatter's run because "he's afraid of life after football" boo hoo)

but even if these folks are arrested it's a really deep rabbit hole

the story on Chuck Blazer that someone else in the comm found</a>. The way I am reading it the IRS were able to come after him for income tax evasion. That led to finding out about the other people that were arrested today who and the FBI could indict because they had American bank accounts (on American servers) where they were hiding their own money. Meaning it's technically punishable in USA.
 
 
 
 
 


'Dave' seems a strangely appropriate nickname for Cesar Azpilicueta. His style is founded on such a deliberate lack of flamboyancy that there is an aptness about the moniker given to him by his Chelsea teammates. Anything polysyllabic would seem superfluous.

An interesting article not just about Dave, but also about defending.Collapse )

di Matteo's out. from the sound of it he volunteered as opposed to Schalke showing him the door

ironically the U-19 team has won the German Championship so... I expect there will be a lot of players being sent elsewhere soon

from the same article:
Thomas Schaaf has also left his post as Eintracht Frankfurt head coach.
