Columbus Brigade Threatens Treason Over Match Location


Reports indicate that U.S. Soccer may choose a non-Columbus site, likely Salt Lake City, to host the home qualifying match with Mexico on Feb. 11.  Fans in Columbus are not pleased. 

Fans left the following messages on Big Soccer message boards, threatening to openly root for Mexico.  One even threatened to place a pipe bomb in U.S.S.F. president Sunil Gulati’s car.

If true I hope the US lose and Bradley gets fired. He’s the worst coach the USSF has ever hired. – MFRONE

Am I being petty if I hope* the U.S. doesn’t win because they (USSF) screwed with the streak (and because I’m bitter I won’t be able to go now)? – west ham sandwich

I never thought I’d see the day I’d be rooting for Mexico, but taking this game out of the one place in the US that the Tri absolutely hate and fear is the most shortsighted decision imaginable. Where can I get a Mexico shirt cheap? … I think this falls to Jack Warner’s toadie Sunil Gulati.
 – Bill Archer

If this goes down, Mr. Gulati better check under his car for a pipe bomb anytime he goes driving somewhere. – DrunkandDisorderly

“It” Has a Sick Bachelor Pad

When your name is Sven-Goran Eriksson, you can’t live just anywhere.

The Mexico manager is reportedly renting an 11,000 square foot penthouse apartment in Mexico City.  The rent is $12,000 a month.

To give a Manhattan perspective, that is more than eleven times larger than the apartment I share with three roommates.

He has all of that room to think, yet still can’t break down the Reggae Boyz.

Saturday International Results 10/11/08

Romania 2 – France 2 Les Bleus returned from a two goal deficit, sparked by Yoann Gourcuff.  Has anyone successfully explained why Domenech is still employed?

Faroe Islands 1 – Austria 1 The first point for Faroe Islands in three years, against a team that pummeled France a month ago.

Jamaica 1 – Mexico 0 Huge upset for the Reggae Boyz.  Sven is tempering expectations.
