Claiming the England, US and Australia bids as accountable to their media and...– England blows whistle on Blatter - TODAYonline
I don’t blame Gulati. If we refused to roll around in the mud, good for him. He seems an honest man with a true passion for the game. I don’t always agree with his decisions, but I think he is an intelligent person and who, unlike re organization he was trying to persuade, has scruples. If anything, I now respect him more.

A lot of Disney fairy tales, most of which are lifted and adapted from the Brothers Grimm, feature frail female leads who in order to achieve their goal must rely on their man to save them.

I guess Tumblr exists so I can rant about Everton
In an effort to console myself in the face of absolute certainty that Tim Cahill is going to leave us this winter, I have convinced myself that other players will step up. Why?
