Quick Throw: Midday Gallimaufry

At the risk of cannibalizing our own Backpasses... Several items of note. All worthy of mention sooner rather than later but maybe not worthy of a full post.

Setanta is in trouble and looking to open up "crisis talks" with the Premiership

Hyppia to Levekusen. Perfect. He's used to not winning league titles.

Arsenal groups backing Kroenke. Could be a fun summer around the Emirates.

I sense someone is going to start manufacturing a talking Rafa doll.

Oh, and kill some time at work. (Eh, I got 6 of 10 if you need a benchmark).

Best of luck Sami, would have liked to have seen him get a testimonial. Think we'll see him back soon on the sidelines though. Class act all the way and one of the alltime bargains.

It's not easy. A couple of lucky guesses (like I know about the non-Istanbul teams in Turkey) kept me from a 4-ish.

I think I may have gotten banned from posting on the soccer threads at the big lead, all my comments are now 'awaiting moderation'

Precious Roy said...

Well, we're totally okay with extremism over here.

Mike Georger said...

You guys probably know what 'in lieu' means too, or at least wouldn't pretend to know and use it incorrectly. So there's another difference.

in lieu of being allowed to post on UF, Mike Georger must now send all comments by snail mail

EbullientFatalist said...

You are okay with extremism at UF? Will we see the introduction of UF Ultras in Baltimore this July? If so, be original. No Lazio.

The NY Kid said...

Well, Precious is Italian, and I'm a PSG supporter, so...

Alors, pas "bienvenue", mais "au revoir" les ch'tis?

Minor in 19th French Lit, baby!

I thought my Religion minor was useless, but holy shit man.

I got 4 out of 10, 3 if you count the totally random dumb-ass Turkey guess I got right. And I over-thought two of them instead of going with my gut (which would have been right - first guess was Everton and Van Basten, but then I thought about them - stupid fucking brain...). Given that I only got serious about following football within the last 3 years, I'm actually kind of proud of that result...

** 3 if you DON'T count
