Há muito que a Índia anseia por fazer com que o futebol se torne um desporto popular num país que é o segundo país mais populoso do mundo, o sétimo maior em área geográfica e onde o críquete é que dita leis e tem maior número de praticantes e de seguidores. A estratégia para conseguir dar ao futebol um maior destaque foi a de, semelhança do que sucedeu em tempos com os Estados Unidos e o Japão, contratar "craques" de renome mundial para jogarem no país, de modo a suscitar interesse sua volta.

For the last few years, I have felt unable to speak too much about the ‘Invincibles' side online with other Arsenal fans. This is because I have found that the mere mention of that sobriquet invites fierce critique of the current squad. Possibly Arsenal's finest ever assembly of players have, for the last ten years, ostensibly been forged into a stick with which to beat contemporary Arsenal.

This is one of those weird mornings for blogging. Everything that needs to be said about Swansea has already been said so there's no need for any further analysis or navel gazing in that regard. I don't need, and I'm sure you don't either, to read about the players needing to keep going or putting things right or showing a response or having to keep fighting or sneaking into John Terry's house and putting a funnel up his nose and blasting 5000 fire ants into his brain .

'Twas the 11th annual 'Match Against Poverty' last night, with Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo once again assembling their stellar teams, chock-full of legendary names, to square off in the name of charity.

As always, the rosters were absolutely stellar with the likes of Robert Pires, Youri Djorkaeff, Paolo Maldini, Steve McManaman, Ruud Gullit, Christian Vieri, Hidetoshi Nakata, Fabio Cannavaro and Jamie Carragher all turning out for the occasion making Luis Figo's dressing room "group selfie" (okay, we know it's not actually a selfie) a thing of exquisite beauty and putting Ellen DeGeneres' paltry Oscar night ensemble shot to shame.
