    Re: World Soccer XXVII: The REAL Football

    Charges have been brought against six people in Hillsborough Disaster

    The full list of individuals and charges are:
    Mr Duckenfield, 72, faces manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 men, women and children
    Sir Norman, 61, faces four charges of misconduct in a public office relating to alleged lies he told in the aftermath about the culpability of fans
    Graham Mackrell, former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary, will be accused of breaching Health and Safety and Safety at Sports Ground legislation
    Peter Metcalf, who was a solicitor acting for SYP, is charged with perverting the course of Justice, relating to changes to witness statements
    Former Ch Supt Donald Denton and former Det Ch Insp Alan Foster are accused of perverting the course of justice
    So it seems two for the disaster itself, Duckenfield and Mackrell, and four for the "alleged coverup".

    People are being told not to comment on the case on social media due to "Do NOT comment anywhere publicly (including on Reddit) whether you think any of the defendants is guilty/innocent. Your comments could be used as evidence by the defence of perversion as justice (ie claiming they cannot have a fair trail, as people already believe them to be guilty/innocent. If this happens, the court case could be thrown out." r/soccer has been pretty vigilant on this, it's crazy.

    Unless I'm mistaken, we will have an non-MLS team in the US Open Cup Semifinals. Congrats to Miami and FC Cincinnati.

    We need to bring back the ethnic teams: New York Hakoah, Brooklyn Hispano, and the immortal Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals.

    Well, we do have this. And this. And this. And this. And this. And if we really get into it: this, this, and two more I can't get photos for.

    I mean, even if one is fake we still got plenty to go around.

    Actually the two most successful are Bethlehem Steel and Maccabi Los Angeles with 5 each. I'm pretty sure Maccabi Los Angeles still exists and Bethlehem Steel is used now for Philly's USL team.

    For MLS, Chicago and some other MLS team have 4.

    Re: World Soccer XXVII: The REAL Football

    Gold Cup starts tonight with Honduras vs Costa Rica (not a bad game to watch TBH) and Canada desperately trying not to lose versus French Guiana. Of course, Canada may have already won because, in true CONCACAF fashion, French Guiana is insisting on playing Florent Malouda despite being ruled ineligible. Ah CONCACAF.

    From the article:
    FIFA theoretically wouldíve been O.K. with Malouda playing this month. The Gold Cup isn't their tournament. But CONCACAF isnít O.K. with it, and the key can be found in section XV. a. of the Gold Cup regulations. It reads:

    Each participating Member Association shall select its national representative team from the best players who are nationals of its country and under its jurisdiction, and are eligible for selection in accordance with the provisions of the applicable FIFA Regulations.

    That last clause is the issue. Although Malouda can appear for French Guiana because it isnít in FIFA, CONCACAF chooses to conduct its biennial championship according to FIFA's eligibility guidelines. Malouda is cap-tied to France in FIFA competition and since the Gold Cup is contested under the same rules, he's unable to play for anyone but Les Bleus in either. CONCACAF doesnít consider a playerís eligibility until game day. Nothing stopped French Guiana from adding Malouda to its roster or bringing him to the USA. But if he steps onto the Red Bull Arena pitch in uniform, Les Yana DÚkÚs will forfeit.

    Because it's CONCACAF.

    They played him last night against Honduras and tied. CONCACAF is reviewing the matter so it will probably end up 3-0 Honduras.

    ...except that US and Panama are tied on goal differential, the first tie-breaker; US only in first by scoring more goals overall (2nd tie-breaker). That means that first place in the group will be determined by who can outscore the opponent by more goals, Panama over Martinique or US over Nicaragua. Conceding two goals last night could easily cost us first place.
