Some Soccer News for Oct 8, 2015

Sepp Blatter (90 days suspension), Michel Platini (90 days suspension), Jermome Valcke (90 days on top of already existing open ended suspension) and Chung Mong-joon (6 year suspension) were all officially suspended by FIFA this morning. They are high ranking officials from the executive committee and upward. All crooks.
-Platini is also the head of the European body UEFA. Will UEFA honor this suspension?

Don't get too excited about all this news though. Right after suspending those people FIFA put Issa Hayatou in charge. Sahara Reporters tells us that he is another scum bag of the highest order of sleaze.

In addition to all of that Swiss investigators are said to be hard at work digging deeper into the bidding for the 2022 World Cup which was awarded to Qatar.

Rob Harris of AP, the best at FIFA coverage, fills us in on everything that has happened today since the suspension where handed out.


The German rock star and foosball manager Jurgen Klopp, formerly of Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e. V. Dortmund, has left the tour early with his band Kinderwageneitsche to take over the helm of coaching Liverpool Football Club in Liverpool England.
-You will never walk alone. (TM)
-I wonder what cologne he wears.
-Does he shop at MeUndies? Or Bombas?
-He will be formally introduced in Liverpool on Friday morning.


With a spot in the Olympics on the line:
USA v Honduras - Sat Oct 10 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy UT. Kickoff is set for 2pm CT.

I was kind of hoping Mexico would lose to Honduras last night, so there would be a winner takes all US/Mexico semifinal in the Olympic Qualifiying on Saturday afternoon as a warm up for the US/Mexico match that night. Oh well.
