Uzbek Club at the Heights of Scandal!


A new scandalous video has emerged which has cast doubt on the future of one of the minnows of global soccer. During an after-match interview, one of the players on the club decided to be extremely forthcoming regarding recent allegations, and it is only a matter of time before the league officials take action.

This shocking video is presented below, followed by a translation of the relevant questions and answers.



Steve Dassidot, the player seen giving the interview, plys his trade for the Uzbek club Pakhtakor Tashkent. When the French-born player gave this interview to a reporter for a Paris news agency, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini must have both had an aneurysm. Allow me to take you step-by-step through the outrageousness.

5 secs in - We see Dassidot's line for the game; CSC (contre son camp; i.e. an OG) in the 47th minute and 58th minute)

25 secs in - After being asked about scoring 2 OGs, Dassidot admits that the club president of the opposition paid him off, and that it was difficult to resist the offer of $4000 on the table

55 secs in - After noting that these were his 3rd and 4th OGs this season, Dassidot states that his tactics have allowed him to move to 3 different clubs this season, ensuring future financial opportunities

1:10 in - When the reporter asks why Tirec had such a horrible game, Dassidot replies that their coach had instructed them not to pass to him

1:20 in - Dassidot says that Tirec slept with the coaches wife the previous night, and the coach was determined to ruin his career

1:30 in - Dassidot notes that the referee, who is the cousin of the club president, gave Tirec a red card just as instructed (at this point in the video we can actually see the ref come out of the locker room with money in his hands)

1:35 in - the reporter notes that Tirec's red card was completely undeserved, and Dassidot agrees, noting that it was he, not Tirec, who called the referee "a son of a whore"


Overall this is just an unbelievable video. There are allegations of match-fixing, bribery of referees, and inter-club shenanigans which cause much consternation for the proper officials. Stay tuned for more news as this story continues to develop!

I'm telling you Beckham will end his career in their league.

And in more infuriating news
"Liverpool will be without the services of Emiliano Insua for the next month due to his participation in the Under-20 South American Championships with Argentina in Venezuela."
WOOOOOOO just when I thought Dossena was gone, they give him an opening!

Suddenly aware of moneymaking opportunities in the Uzbek league, Titus Bramble has submitted a transfer request.

Juventus wishes to join the Uzbek league.

Great sketch.

Upon further review, I caught the two guys in towels making out. Man-on-man kissing never needs translation.

Even without the translation, that vid is awesome - watching a ref walk into a clubhouse, accept cash from some type of coach/club official, and then walk out while pocketing the cash and slapping the interviewee on the back for his two OG's is high comedy. Then again, this being in Uzbekistan, I have to say I'm not really surprised - those communists always understood that politics and bribery were two sides of the same coin...

Oh wow, I wish I could speak French. Nice spotting of the makeout session casually going on in the background Andrew. Can you imagine if that happened in an american locker room.
