1. Crowd trouble at an England match and the English supporters are nothing but bewildered spectators. How times have changed. 2. Nothing signifies an ultimately disappointing draw is on the horizon quite like an early England goal. 3. Given Joe Hart's propensity to find touch with such regularity, he might have been the man to [.
Following discussions yesterday, Jakarta police have given permission for Persija's home game with
newly crowned champions Sriwijaya to go ahead at the Bung Karno Stadium on Sunday with spectators
Let's hope the game passes off peacefully.
Persija striker Bambang Pamungkas won't be lining up for the home team.
The U.S. Men's National Team's 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier match against Jamaica on Tuesday,
Sept. 11, at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, has sold out. Nearly 24,000 spectators will
be on hand to watch the U.S. at the home of Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, marking the fifth
sellout for MNT matches played at the stadium.
MLS's newest soccer-specific stadium is about to be unveiled.
Having played their first six games of the season at Olympic Stadium, the Montreal Impact are on
the brink of officially opening the doors to a renovated Stade Saputo tonight when they host the
Seattle Sounders. The stadium can hold more than 20,000 spectators, and each seat is likely to be
filledÂ on what should be a memorable night for Montreal fans.
The San Antonio Scorpions were minutes away from walking out of St. Petersburg, Fla. with a big
2-1 victory that would have ensured they stayed in first place atop the NASL standings.
Unfortunately for them, the Tampa Bay Rowdies ruined those plans.
The Rowdies scored twice in the final few minutes of their dramatic match with San Antonio, and
they claimed a 3-2 victory that seemed improbable to the 2,559 Rowdies fans that endured the rainy
conditions at Al Lang Stadium on Saturday night.
Luka, goodbye and good luck. I'll only remember the good times, and they were rich, plentiful
The finest midfielder to wear the shirt since Gascoigne, on his day he made the team humÂ with
energy and purpose.Â He was the link between defence and attack, taking the ball from the toes of
the back four and looking up, always looking up.
Amid Robin van Persie's transfer from Arsenal to Man Utd and Luka Modric's imminent move away
from Spurs to Real Madrid, questions are again to be raised over what exactly motivates footballers
and the choices they make. The life of a top level footballer seems pretty surreal â€“ taken out of
school early to end up being paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to play a game two times a week
in front of thousands of spectators with their lives lived in the glare of the paparazzi, it's
hardly your average life.
Over the weekend fans got to see some of their old idols take to the pitch again as Real
Madrid's legends squared off against a Manchester United legends side. Sixty-thousand spectators
were on hand to witness Real Madrid's 3-2 win over the Red Devils, and were lucky enough to see a
stunning goal from Portuguese legend Figo.
The Norwegian girls made it to quarter-finals of the U-20 Women's World Cup
yesterday, cementing their position as the tournament's surprise package. Admittedly, they felt a
little dispirited after their opening defeat to South Korea last week, but fought hard in their 4-1
victory over the Argentinians yesterday.
The USA women's soccer team has won the gold medal in the 2012 Summer Olympics. The American women
were victorious after defeating Japan 2-1 in regulation time in front of a record crowd of over
80,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium ...

Sepp Blatter was around to see his fondest dream of seeing women playing in "tighter shorts".
Yes, he really did say that as a way of attracting more male spectators amongst many of his other
pearls of wisdom.
The match underscored the importance of having a good goalie and in Miho Fukumoto, the Nadeshiko
The 120-minute long Euro 2012 semifinal match between Spain and Portugal was roughly equivalent
to watching someone slowly get a needle jabbed in their eye while a stadium full of spectators
quietly did the wave to keep themselves distracted. But the shootout that followed managed to leave
an even larger void -- more specifically a Ronaldo-sized void -- than everything thatÂ precededÂ
Four years of Spain's tiki-taka passing and possession heavy domination has left many football
fans (excluding all Spain supporters, of course) bored with the foregone conclusion that is their
success. But while spectators and opponents often forget that a bit of egalitarian belief and
discipline can, at times, get a result against Spain (see: the U.

city of Krakow hours after visiting Auschwitz concentration camp. Several of the Dutch players were
subjected to vile monkey chants as they trained in Wisla Krakow's ground in front of 25,000
spectators in the tournament's first case of [.
This article titled "Euro 2012: Manager denies working Republic of Ireland too hard" was written
by David Hytner in Gdynia, for The Guardian on Tuesday 5th June 2012 22.00 UTC
Giovanni Trapattoni has laughed off the suggestion from Aiden McGeady that the Republic of
Ireland's players felt "jaded" because of the intensity of their Euro 2012 preparations by saying
that the training camp in Montecatini was like a "holiday".
Denmark's noble attempt to overcome their difficult group draw ended in disappointment as they
lost 2-1 to Germany in their final Group B match, preventing them from advancing to the knockout
rounds after taking four points in their matches against Portugal and the Netherlands.
Denmark kept the Germans at bay for much of the match, but an 80th minute Lars Bender goal ended
the deadlock the Danish had been clinging to since Michael Krohn-Dehli equalized five minutes after
Lu-Lu-Lu Lukas Podolski's 19th-minute opening goal.
You'll often find 'one man and his dog' in attendance at mid-season friendly matches... but it looks like the dogs might have actually outnumbered the human spectators at a recent Galatasaray friendly. The canine crowd decided to mount a pitch invasion, with two labradors bounding around the playing surface with glee.
Without doubt Persib are one of the best supported clubs in the country. Yet they have woefully
lacked a decent stadium to show off in front of their fans. Siliwangi Stadium in Bandung only holds
about 22,000 while Jalak Harapat Stadium out in Soreang holds about 35,000 but is a bastard to get
to and from.
On Wednesday night at Boston's Fenway Park, 37,169 avid soccer spectators took in one of the most

Their Words "It just proves the incredible strength of football, and most notably of the UEFA
Champions League, whose thrilling games deliver the perfect show to stadium crowds and TV
spectators. This is thanks in no small part to the great collaboration between UEFA and the clubs."
UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino.
This opportunity was definitely not going to be missed. A once-in-a-red-moon chance to see our
Manchester United Team in training â€“ in the flesh! Time to perhaps experience our Club at work,
rather than the fine veneer â€˜on show' in a match. Tickets sold quickly, ours had been bought four
weeks ago on the first morning of sales.
PARKGATE 0-6 ROTHERHAM UNITED
Roundwood Stadium, Green Lane, Rawmarsh
Two games for me yesterday as originally I was going to watch some American Football, then a noon
kick off caught my eye between Parkgate and Rotherham United. Decision made and then it was a case
to what to go and watch at 3pm - a good friend of mine Rob Hornby got in touch to say he was going
to watch Glapwell v Shirebrook @ Clune Street in Clowne.
While the Ottawa Fury have much to celebrate after their 2-0 win against the Seacoast United
Phantoms on Saturday night, their opponents have to be disappointed with their current six game
It's been a rough few weeks for the Phantoms. Among the favorites to win the Northeast Division
after starting the season unbeaten in their first eight games (5-0-3), the Phantoms have gone cold
at the worst possible time and are winless since June 16th, seeing their record plummet to 5-5-4
(19 points) and a drop in the standings from second to sixth place.
Riding your bike through a park on a sunny day is usually quite enjoyable, but riding your bike
through the part of the park with goals and people passing a football around can have consequences.
And the video above features those consequences.
A person on a bike attempts to cut through a kick around just as the ball was passed right in
front of him.
Marketing is a difficult task for every business, organization and sports franchise. It takes
skill to not only create interesting and appealing advertising, but executing the campaign is
equally as difficult. Done well, it can change the fortunes of a company. Done wrong, it can make
you the focus of ridicule from consumers.
Good morning from a vaguely overcast, but more specifically hungover Edinburgh. I imagine this
weather would make for ideal marathon running, or it would at least be much more appropriate than
the glaring heat of summer we experienced last weekend, but that would've been much less fun for us
spectators, and we all know marathon running is really about the spectators.
