    I notice that the furore over Rwanda has disappeared rather sharpish.

    Looking for news about the quality of England’s referees, I ran across a list of 50 jokes about football.

    https://inews.co.uk/light-relief/humour/funniest-football-jokes/

    This was among them:
    > God and the devil were having an argument, and Satan proposed a football game between heaven and hell to resolve the dispute. God, in his eternal goodness, pointed out that it wouldn’t be a fair match because all the ‘good’ players go to heaven. The devil smiled, replying, “Yes, but we’ve got all the refs.”

    With respect to reporting on Arsenal versus other clubs, a number of the jokes have [insert team here] in them, so are generic. There are a few that are specialised to a specific team.

    To close things out, there are jokes about FIFA (on the Internet). Here is one:
    > “Investigating #FIFA for corruption must be like searching Dunkin’ Donuts for donuts.”

    Well well well

    Olympique Lyonnais just announced they stopped all negotiations with Liverpool. Can’t wait to see how the media are going to try to spin it…

    By the way, even though the OL statement doesn’t (as expected) give the reasons behind this decision, according to reliable sources, Liverpool tried to lower the transfer fee AFTER the medical took place.

    Wow, just wow.. The people running Liverpool really are an utterly shameless, snake-like bunch. Can you even imagine the reaction in the media if Arsenal even attempted to pull some of things that Liverpool have done in the transfer market? We would never hear the end of it.

    Of course the media wouldn’t report it, but I can only hope that Liverpool have/get a well-known reputation for conducting themselves in such an underhanded and slimey manner, making many clubs refuse to work with them.
