I see Premier is going back to five subs. I always thought four subs was the better solution across the board.
Playing against England in the 1986 World Cup, Maradona’s first goal was scored with his hand and later became known as the “Hand of God.” His second goal that day is often described as the greatest individual goal ever scored, and has earned the sobriquet the “Goal of the Century.”
After the game, Maradona swapped shirts with England midfielder Steve Hodge, who has owned the jersey ever since. The shirt will soon be sold for the first time over, with bidding opening at Sotheby’s on April 20, while also being on display at Sotheby’s New Bond Street gallery in London.
You're not wrong, but I don't have a problem with this. That's a tradition, not a rule. And I certainly would consider not doing it for my rival.
It's not remotely the same thing...football teams shake hands after a game anyways.How would we feel if the Montreal Canadiens or Boston Bruins refused a handshake line after a playoff series?
That's terrific. When he hits "Southampton" at the end [chef's kiss]must enjoy with the sound up. safe for work, but too bizarre for work, maybe.
This is what the PM had to say about scheduling the friendly:But hey, no problem playing in a tournament built on slave labor.
Thats just weird from Trudeau. Maybe it’s a sign that , with the NDP agreement in the bank he’s moving to shore up the Grits right flank (sorry for the political digression)This is what the PM had to say about scheduling the friendly:
"“This was a decision by Sport Canada, Soccer Canada. I think it wasn’t a very good idea to invite the Iranian soccer team here to Canada,” said Trudeau when asked by reporters about the decision to grant the Iran delegation visas. “That’s something the organizers are going to have to explain.”
I haven't seen him make similar comments about Canada taking part in the Qatar World Cup.
Soccer Canada should stick it to their political overlords and play the game anyway in Bermuda or something, any venue available on a week's notice. I bet a few fans would change their flight plans. Bermuda has a NL home game vs Haiti the night before, their national stadium holds 8500. Bahamas are away the night of the 5th, stadium in Nassau holds 15k. Doesn't look like Iran has any other friendlies scheduled, either. Make a nice apology and let them have a few days on the beach after the game.That would make sense - the reasoning seems to be an amalgam of the Islamic Republic not allowing women into football matches (against which most of Team Melli has spoken out on IG/Twitter), the downing of PS752 (a direct result of USA sabre rattling, but I digress), and general "these specific people are bad" sentiment. But I do see this as very much a politically-motivated reversal of course to MJY's point.
It is what it is, the IR has already been paid by Canada - so the only people hurt here are Iran's national team, the Iranian diaspora that had already made travel arrangements, and Canadians that are conscious of hypocrisy.
Not a banner weekend for French football stadium security.
Now joint-most with PSG, and the last one was in 1981. Relegated in 1984, 1996 and 2001 with three-season exiles each time. Did manage to finish fourth just before the pandemic. It's a big enough club for them going down to be quite a big deal, but it's more like when Mike Ashley's Newcastle went down than anything genuinely shocking.Not a banner weekend for French football stadium security.
I don't know hardly anything about Ligue 1, but I know Saint-Etienne have the most titles out of any club, so it would seem to be quite the downfall for them to be relegated.
Certainly interesting. I loved Gattuso as a player, disliked his sexist comments very much and was thrilled he didn't get appointed to Spurs, but I think he will add entertainment value to Valencia and La Liga.Valencia are hiring Gennaro Gattuso as coach. Gattuso was on the Spurs radar last summer before sexist comments he made were publicized.
