Not to drag OTP into the thread, but I wonder at point events unfolding in Ukraine could conceivably begin mounting pressure on FIFA regarding the 2018 WC.
King, who sits on both the Homeland Security and Intelligence Committees, said global response should also consider relieving Russia from hosting the 2018 of the World Cup.
Maybe he doesn't even know about Torino's meeting with Swedish minnows Brommapojkarna in the EL qualifiers.
"After the last six months I spent in the Premier League with Crystal Palace, I enjoyed the experience, but I had a bit of a here-and-there-and-everywhere summer. I ended up at Milan for a couple of days and I stood in the San Siro and I thought that it was an unbelievable feeling so I thought I was in a dream. After that I went to Portugal and had a few days away with my family and luckily enough I met Steve Bruce in Portugal and the rest is history. I had a coffee and a cheese and ham toastie with him and that was it, I was signed. I felt this time now in my career, the opportunity that I think that Hull City can give me will be fantastic - again it is another opportunity to play in the Premier League."
dispense some solomonic justice.
LA, Toronto or Houston, with special credit for Toronto if you want to see Michael Bradley or LA if you want to see Donovan.
So what's the deal with the South American players who refuse to report to the Ukraine? What the hell will FIFA/UEFA do about that? Will they blackball them?
Not a big deal, but I try to correct this when I see it because it drives my Ukrainian friends up the wall. The name of the country is Ukraine. Not 'the Ukraine.' Russians call it 'the Ukraine' because they want to imply that it's a geographic region rather than an independent country.
Hmm. Must decide if this is a bug or a feature...

How many Ukrainian friends do you have?
I thought that 263 was going to be a photo of Haydon Womble, Wimbledon's environmentally aware mascot
"He likes the ball into feet, he will tell you himself he isn't going to run the channels.
"He just wants the ball into his feet and chest so he can pin defenders and get runners off him.
"You can't get into a physical scrap with him, because you will end up fouling him or he is just going to throw you.
"...Sometimes we could be just as well letting him have the ball and see what he is going to do with it, because he is not going to run and get at you, he is going to look for runners."
1: Manchester United and Liverpool are the big draws. United’s average audience was 1.4m people per match and Liverpool’s was 1.31m. This is in-home TV viewing but clearly indicative of popularity. No other team averaged as many as 1.2m people per game.
2: Sky remains the main player in audience terms, although with a 20-year head start this is to be expected. Sky have somewhere north of 11 million pay-TV customers and more than 7 million of them subscribe to the sports channels. Their average PL audience last season was 1.2 million people per live game. BT Sport’s channels can now be accessed in around 5 million homes, either directly from BT on TV or via apps, or via other means, for example as a bolt-on to Sky or part of a Virgin package. BT’s average PL match audience last season was 562,000 people per match.
3: While these figures will no doubt seem extremely small to many observers, they demonstrate two things; first that pay-TV is not about ratings primarily but about getting viewers to pay for premium exclusive content they cannot get elsewhere; second that having paid for exclusive content, those viewers will want to see the ‘biggest’ and ‘best’ teams most within their subscription packages. That is why, for example, Manchester United were among the most-shown teams (25 of their 38 PL games were live on TV), as were Liverpool (28 of 38), Chelsea (25), Arsenal (25) and Manchester City (25). Less ‘attractive’ teams were shown much less often. Fulham and Cardiff were on TV just eight times each, with Norwich, Hull and West Brom just nine times each.
Thank you. I grew up in front of you. You drafted me out of college and brought me home. You never turned your back on me while I learned the ins and outs of the professional game. You’ve provided the most loyal fans in MLS. You’ve made Sporting Park the best stadium in the country. You supported me with the U.S. National Team like I am one of your sons. You’ve reassured me that I am right where I belong.
15.00 BST Where did it all go wrong for Andre Santos? Was it the moment he criminally decided to swap shirts with Robin van Persie at half-time? Or was it when he decided to stop defending?
Globo Esporte is reporting, rather alarmingly, that the former Arsenal left-back has mutually agreed to terminate his contract with Brazilian side Flamengo following a recent incident where he was attacked by the club's fans due to a string of poor performances. Left-back, anyone?
The court papers allege the fans were kept on their coach for four and a half hours, the time it took to complete the 160-mile trip back from the Stadium of Light, as police blockaded sliproads and service station entrances.
