    "Momento del pitazo en el que los jugadores del Lara y Anzoátegui no se movieron en solidaridad con los hechos que ocurren en el país"

    Loose translation: Moment of silence held by players from Lara and Anzoategui after the kickoff to show solidarity and recognize what is going on in the country.

    As Benfica today clinched their 4th consecutive national title, a special congrats goes to Fejsa. He has now won 10 consecutive league titles (3 Serbian, 3 Greece, and 4 Portugal)

    Congrats to @Tony the Pony

    I had no idea it had been so long since Feyenoord won the Eredivisie. Losing to Excelsior last weekend must have been an awful moment, especially with Ajax's form, but Kuyt to the rescue.

    That's remarkable. Granted he picked the right clubs in the right leagues, but damn.

    There was a match-fixing attempt for a game between two prominent Swedish clubs. One of the players who was approached went to the police and the game has been postponed.

    It's always a little disconcerting to see stuff like this. The Swedish league ain't the EPL, but it's not exactly the Romanian second division either.

    Yep, the former Premier League Champions were edged out on goal difference by 2-time European Champion Nottingham Forest.

    The worst 20 seconds of football ever played?



    Even @teddykgb can't defend City on this one.

    Chuck Blazer has died.

    No word on whether he left all his ill-gotten gains to his cats.

    Africa Cup of Nations expands from 16 to 24 in 2019 and moves to June and July - doubtless delighting European clubs, who lost African stars to the tourney during the season for significant periods of time.

    Iran has banned captain Masoud Shojaei and midfielder Ehsan Haji Safi from the national team for life.

    Their offence? They played in a Europa League playoff game against Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv for their Greek club Panionios.

    FIFA forbids political interference in football matters, so it will be interesting to see how this is handled. Iran has already qualified for the 2018 World Cup.

    Benfica playing Rangers on Oct 6 in Hamilton, Ontario. Seems random, especially the date. Although there are a lot of Portuguese people in Toronto who would make the 1-hour trip west

    Benfica had scheduled to play Chapecoense for their Eusebio Cup match in July. The CBF forced Chape to withdraw. Benfica had looked into holding it in Toronto before the preseason ended, but the timing didn't work. The earlier start to the season didn't help. So this will likely be billed as this year's edition of the cup and as you mentioned there is a large Portuguese population in Ontario. Not to mention southern Jersey fans will make the long drive to Hamilton.

    They got a good crowd at BMO when Benfica played Celtic during '09 preseason. That match had both sides playing mostly with reserves. The large Scottish population is just as much of a targeted audience. Not really a random proposition when you look at who the match is being sold to.

    Thank you, that all makes a lot of sense, I forgot about how many Scottish fans are here. The randomness for me is mostly the date, it's odd to see a club friendly in October.

    A friend up here posited that the organizers on the Hamilton side are affiliated with the upcoming Canadian Premier League (CPL headquarters are in Hamilton) and they want to get more games at the location to build local interest

    In a piece of hilarious international ineptitude, France had a 0-0 draw against Luxembourg at home, despite outshooting the visitors 19-2, owning 74 percent of the possesion and completing 500(!) more passes; and also having a team of superstars playing a bunch of Sunday-leaguers. Luxembourg actually had the best chance to win the game imo on a counter late that just missed hitting off the inside of the post and clanging in. It's a fun match to watch; especially if you like watching Paul Pogba butcher opportunities from outside the box:



    With Sweden beating Belarus 4-0 today, France leads Group A by a single point. Sweden closes against Luxembourg and at the Netherlands, who got waxed by France 4-0 earlier this week. France hosts Belarus and plays Bulgaria.

    How are there Revolution fans left? It just consists of getting spit on time and time again.

    Easier said than done to just drop them after bring a fan for all these years, especially since they're our local squad. I have preferences in other leagues, but following a team in Europe isn't the same to me. So we soldier on, sinking deeper into irrelevance with every passing year.

    Yeah, I’m sorry.

    Have some friends that are pretty hooked, it’s rough. I keep t lying them to pulla Charlton or Blackpool.

    If we had 3 tiered professional pyramid with pro/reg, would that have changed Kraft’s attitude?
