But I love the football that brings people together across religious divides, geographic divides, political divides. I love the fact that for ninety minutes in a rectangular piece of grass, people can forget hopefully, whatever might be going on in their life, rejoice in this communal celebration of humanity. The biggest diverse, invasive or pervasive culture that human kind knows is football and I love the fact that at the altar of football human kind can come worship and celebrate. x

So I guess we needed a statue to commemorate the most infamous headbutt in modern soccer history.
And here it is, just outside Paris’ Centre Pompidou modern art museum.

We proudly present the winner of our “What PowerPoint did AVB present to the Burnley board that so confused them?” competition.  GFOP Hans Janowitz is the genius behind this piece of work. May we forever be in the dark on how he lifted the presentation from Andre’s laptop.

After all the criticism which surrounded their home shirt, Manchester United have launched the away strip! It’s quite clear which jersey fans will be buying this year, don’t you agree?


I think I’ll still be buying the home shirt.

Remember how Japan’s women’s soccer team won the World Cup last year? Well, apparently it wasn’t good enough for them to fly first class with the men’s team to the Olympics this week.
The women’s team was assigned seats in premium economy for the 13-hour flight to Paris while the nation’s under-23 men’s team was up front on the same flight.“It should have been the other way around,” 2011 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year Homare Sawa told Japanese media after arriving in the French capital. “Even just in terms of age we are senior.”The Japan Football Association said the men fly business class to the Olympics because they are professionals.


Fuck that shit.
