My eyes started to water the second I read about the passing of Sir Bobby Robson this morning. Yeah, I got to shake his hand once when he was handing out medals and awards at a tournament I played in. Not sure if he actually saw me play. However, even without that moment, I’m sure I would have reacted the same way.
What a busy time. In case you are the 2 visitors I get to this blog that aren’t my mom, I just moved again. Ok, it was only cross town but with everything that’s taken place the last few weeks, it may as well have been a much longer move. Anyway, between that, school and work (can’t forget to pay the bills) I’ve just not had the time to really post lately. So, I’m gonna share a few thoughts though I’ll probably forget half of what I wanted to say.

I read the other day that FIFA had finally done the right thing and given World Cup medals to all those who were on teams but didn’t play in the finals. Reading about it reminded me of the petition Ipswich fans are signing to get Kevin Beattie a UEFA Cup winners medal from 1981. Beattie was the was the heart and soul of the Ipswich backline back then. If it wasn’t for him, Town probably would not have made it that far in the Cup that year. He was fantastic …
In 2000 Ipswich finally reached the EPL via the playoffs after several years heartbreak. They did this under the guidance of George Burley who’d been in charge at Portman Road for over five years and a squad of players who reminded fairly much the same season-to-season by selling only a couple of players to bigger clubs (like Keiron Dyer to Newcastle) to insure the bills get paid. Their first season back in the EPL Ipswich finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup. This again was done with much the …
I woke up this morning and I’m not sure why but I was thinking it’s a long break until we get some more MLS. It’s not like Baseball which gets in the news all winter–often for the wrong reasons–MLS has little to no news to keep us occupied. At least we still have foreign leagues to fill the void. Oh, and I supposed I should congratulate the Orange Smurfs (AKA Houston) for another title. Personally, I’d love to see Dwayne DeRosario wearing Blue at …
It’s been an interesting week on the MLS Coaching front. Of course, LA now have a Dutch coach….a coach who I idolized as a player. The guy was awesome. My hope is that he can introduce Total Football to the HDC.
I was fortunate enough to group up in the Total Football heyday. While I lived on the other side of the North Sea, Bobby Robson had brought a taste of Total Football to Suffolk in the late 80’s when he signed Arnold Murhen and Franz Thijssen. The think of love …
