I liked him in the Mummy movies.  But what's that got to do with soccah?  You mean John Doyle's favourite game? :soccer

He was brilliant in 4 Weddings and a Funeral.  

I don't get the soccer bit, though... :?

Oh, dear! I gave you the wrong link up top. That's John Hannah, who I was writing about elsewhere.

I meant to link to the Guardian's notice of the death of Alan Ball. Shame -- yesterday they had a good photo of him, but I don't see it now.

Who's calling footie, soccah. I played keeper in a Grad league at Western. Actually broke my leg in a quarterfinal game.

I like soccah! I'm a wretch at it, given I have a body built for running into people, but I do enjoy playing and I've really improved.

Oh, and go TFC! I'm going to see their game against the NYRB I hope.

TFC has won its last two games and places DC United tomorrow.

I hope Chelsea pulls out the FA Cup tommorow and Liverpool kicks butt on Wednesday.

Deep down, I want to see Milan win. At the surface, I hate Milan after the whole Serie A scandal. Boo! So, go Liverpool.

Mind you, I loathe Chelsea. I don't find many Chels fans legit, unless you liked them pre-Abram era. I just can't want them to win. And they have my boy.

Right now though I'm waiting for my Karpaty Lviv jersey to come in. Go Green Lions!

BMO Field is channelling Montreal's Olympic Stadium:

Quote
TORONTO -- Toronto FC is making emergency repairs to BMO Field because bolts and fasteners have fallen from the new stadium during games.

The team's fans have quickly gained a reputation for their boisterous support for the new team. Fans have been stomping on the all-metal floors of the stadium and some reports say that caused material to fall.

My favourite FA teams are Liverpool and whoever is playing Man U. It just happens to be Chelsea.  :D

Noi rossi :redflag: tifano per Roma FC. I fascisti tifano per quelli mascalzoni di Lazio FC.

Help me here, Lagatta.  You are a Roma fan and it tends to be the Communist team and the fascists tebded to support Lazio because it was considered a masculine team. Did I get the essence

Everything except the "masculine" - "mascalzoni" means "scoundrels" - the fachos would of course say the same of Roma supporters.

In reality both teams are capitalist enterprises with overpaid players and extremely rich owners, but they are famed as the teams of the left and right in Rome.

There is a current Lazio player who is known for fascist salutes, Holocaust denial and assorted racist shithead comments...
