News From Around The World of Football

Here are a few articles from this past weekend that were of interest to me and that you will probably find interesting too:

  • An excellent article in The Times from the man who is on top of his game, Gabriele Marcotti. This time Gab talks to Pele at a recent GolTV press conference. Topics include what impact Beckham may have on America and whether soccer fans in the States know their sport or not.
  • Bad news for football fans in the United Kingdom. The 2006/2007 season in all four divisions in England resulted in record attendances since 1970. The bad news is that many football chairman will use this statistic to justify higher ticket prices. Lots of interesting stats in this article including the fact that the Coca-Cola Championship gets a higher average attendance than Serie A! Plus how the Premiership has the second highest average attendance in all of Europe.
  • Noel Gallagher from rock band Oasis is seen here sporting the new Manchester City home (and more importantly, the away strip, which I haven’t seen before). Plus Man City are rolling out a new parka. At least City has class off the pitch. Let’s see if they can hire someone with enough vision to get the team playing attractive football once again.

    Pele speaks the truth. The game is alive and well here at the grassroots level in the states!

    I don’t think we need to get too exciting about the Coca-Cola Championship having more fans this year than Siere A. Lets not forget there was about a few weeks when no fans were permitted to attend matches. Now if the trend continues next season…then it will be a story.
