In the Interim the Grand Blanc Youth Football program will be playing our 3 home games outside of the Grand Blanc community.
Participation in soccer within the greater Kingston area has grown exponentially in recent years, but there has not been a corresponding increase in the number of available soccer fields. As a result, the fields are severely overused and in very poor condition. Clubs will have to limit enrollment in soccer because of the shortage of fields.
Christian Kisuka and family fled the Democratic Republic of Congo and are living in Glasgow. They are still waiting for a decision on his asylum application five years after having fled the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with his mother and sister.
Kisuka is quoted as saying, "We had to leave the Congo because it was dangerous and they were shooting people.”
Kisuka has been compared to the Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba. After starring for the Scottish Premier League side's under-17s and scoring 46 goals for his Glasgow-based youth team. But he is unable to take up the two-year contract Aberdeen FC (AFC) want to offer him until a decision is made on his immigration status.
Christian Kisuka has been described by Leonard Taylor head of AFC youth policy “one of the best youth football players in Scotland at his age”. Ross Mathie, Scotland's youth coach, stating that Christian would be picked for the country.”
Kisuka is quoted as saying, "I would love to represent Scotland one day and am becoming fed up because I have seen other guys I have played football with signing contracts at Aberdeen and other clubs while I have to wait for a decision.

Following on from a children's football tournament held at New Barn Playing Fields, Shaw, Oldham (5th and 6th July), Oldham council have fined the club £1,500 for repairs they have had to make to the playing fields (reseeding).
Over that weekend over 60 teams took part in the tournament and I feel that the council have let the children of the borough down by imposing such a fine.
The NRL won't listen to the fans...they think the game is in a perfect state, when week in week out teams are getting robbed by shoddy refereeing decisions.
It is only worried about teams in Sydney when it is the NATIONAL Rugby League.
Ben Cousins (as an AFL football player) has been deregistered as a player for bringing the game in to disrepute.
Ben has not been charged with any criminal drug offence but has admitted he is a user but did not affect his sport in any way.
Ben returned to Perth WAFL football club for club training on August 4th to endevour to return to a team enviorment.
He has served a 12 month suspension and can play in 2009 if he passes certain health tests.
People are getting bored with the half time shows that the NFL have been putting out recently since the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake fiasco. Nobody watches the game anymore.
If the Jonas Brothers were to perform i can gaurantee and amazing turnout of the likes that the NFL have never seen before.
The Jonas Brothers are super hot right on the charts and the small screen and you can trust them to not pull anything stupid on stage. They would never do that to their fans.
Every day is a Habib Beye day! He's the saviour of the Mags back four, the most committed member of the squad (and he didn't even want to come), the new Rob Lee, and the only member of the current squad I'd consider putting on the back of my shirt.
In homage to our fantastic right back, we think we should rename our coastal town in his honour - Whitley Beye!!
*P/S don't forget to leave your e-mail adress to be kept informed on the movement's progress!!
Granville Soccer have decided to cancel Rounds 10 and 4 after they have been washed out.
Many teams need these two games as they face easier teams and need the points in order to progress to the semi finals.
We are signing a petition to signify a peaceful demonstration against Granville Soccer's decision.
In 2003 around 100,000 Celtic fans travelled to Seville, in Spain to watch their team play in the UEFA Cup final. Even though their team lost, the Celtic fans were so well behaved, UEFA presented them with an award in recognition of this – the first time it had ever so.
Fast forward to the 2008 UEFA Cup final in Manchester, and the disgusting scenes that were broadcasted across the world of so called football fans rioting, attacking Police and assaulting rival fans in the stadium and in the centre of one of the busiest and culturally diverse cities in Europe.
Ranger’s fans have not only brought shame and disgust on their club, but on the whole league, and by association, every other SPL club. After the last 2 ‘Old Firm’ matches, Celtic Fans have been targeted in attacks by Rangers Fans, which have resulted in 1 death and one Celtic fan being hospitalised indefinitely.
Celtic fans are tired of being connected to Ranger’s, simply because they are located in the same city – just as you wouldn’t accuse Fred West’s neighbour of being a mass murderer simply because they lived next door to him, Celtic, Hib’s, Hearts and other SPL fans don’t wish to be tarnished with the same brush as Rangers Fans.
Point Cook Soccer Club Inc was formed on 27th Dec 2007 by dedicated parent volunteers due to the need of the community for access to the sport of soccer within the region of Point Cook, to not disadvantage families who have little time or ability to drive outside of Point Cook.
The club tried unsuccesfully to gain access, on ongoing basis, of existing facilities within the City of Wyndham.
Whilst not optimal to our ever growing community's needs, we have sourced an alternative facility. In doing so we have established a membership base of at least 49 members (children, girls & boys, aged 12 & under).
This figure would, undoubtedly, be much greater if facilities were in place, as many children are forced to travel outside of Point Cook to other overcrowded clubs. In some cases children are turned away from these overcrowded clubs unless they show competitive prowess & ability, & bring skill advantage to the club.
Point Cook Soccer Club's objectives are to offer the community of Point Cook & surrounding areas the opportunity to play soccer in a safe & enjoyable environment and to provide the experience and enjoyment of playing soccer to all, irrespective of ability or background.
For years Glasgow Celtic and its supporters have been found guilty by association due to Rangers Football Club and their fans' behaviour.
Up until now most of this has been swept under the carpet by the Scottish media to defect the damaging image of Scottish football, however recent trouble has emerged from Manchester, and only now is the whole world sitting up and seeing what these animals are actually all about.
This club until recent years would not sign a catholic player, are linked heavily with sectarianism, racism and are even happily chanting songs tarnishing a dead legends name.
In 2003 over 200,000 Celtic fans crossed Europe by car, boat, bus and plane to head for Seville for the UEFA cup final against Porto, we lost that game, but over the whole period of time the Celtic fans were there, there was NOT ONE incident of trouble and only 1 arrest made.
Indeed Celtic fans won an accolade of admiration from the whole world and of course a special award from UEFA due to their good behaviour. However when you look at Rangers recent final, 42 arrests, rioting with police, looting shops and opposition fans being stabbed not to mention the rest.
It is on this note I demand action be taking by immediate effect to ensure the name "OLD FIRM" is replace by the typical CELTIC V RANGERS or vice versa. I will also be using this petition as a sign of encouraging UEFA to ban Rangers football Club from all European tournaments with immediate effect.
This club will forever destroy the image of Glaswegians, the city of Glasgow and of course Scotland as a whole.
As football fans i would encourage all people to spread the word and try for once to get free of the tag OLD FIRM, by my opinion and thousands more. WE ARE GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION.
This petition will be posted to UEFA, the SFA and PETER LAWELL.
Yours in Celtic
The passing of a true Celtic legend should be marked by the renaming of the lennoxtown facility to remind everyone who enters the doors what it means to play for our club.
195. Stop BFC PRICE HIKES
BFC board introduces price increase and banding off games (i.e. Silver, Gold and Platinum all with different price bands)
LAck of fanzones for Rangers fans travelling to Manchester for UEFA CUp Final 2008.
South African President Thabo Mbeki has continually failed to deal with Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe and has simply overseen the destruction of the country.
Recent elections have shown mass support for the MDC despite this Mugabes regime continues to suppress the will of the people and President Mbeki has colluded in this process, unless the South African President is aware that his support for Mugabe is not only distasteful but carries financial consequences no action will be taken to deal with Mugabe.
In Holland & Germany girls can play competitive football against boys without age restriction. In the UK girls must stop playing in boys league games at the age of 12 regardless of how talented they are.
My team has 3 girl players all of whom have played for 3 years in a boys team who want to keep playing next season there are other girls in the same situation.
The FA have organised a trial to see how girls cope in boys matches at ages 12,14 & 16 yet many local leagues are reluctant to take part without any valid reasons that I have heard. Sky Sports are supporting girls playing in the boys game you can do the same.
Please sign the petition and let the girls play, its 2008 you know !!
russia is a disgrace to the champions league and the final should be held in wembley; reasons why,
1)russia isnt even in europe.
Although dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states and carries a felony charge in most, there are still a few states in which it is not taken as seriously.
If you live in a state where dog fighting is a misdemeanor, please contact you local SPCA or ASPCA...
At West Middlesex we have a lot of great sports to participate in but some or none of which grab a lot of attention.
The soccer programs not affiliated with the school flurish with students, of our district, whom love the game of soccer.
The cool thing is that the studnet body at our school can support another sport.
Soccer is a fun way to get out, have exersice and be a member of our team and school athletics.
The current final 8 series is a joke, a mediocre team can scrape in and still make the finals.
It appears to be based more on marketing and revenue factors rather than reward for consistent effort in a season.
Since the A-league was first introduced into the Football scene, it's broadcasting has been dominated pay TV companies. This has effectively ceased any progress the World Game may have had in reaching the standard of opportunity, popularity and grandeur it has in the rest of the world.
This is not just doing damage to the credibility of the sport, but is hindering the true Australian spirit from embracing the sport that is Football. Remember the World Cup of 2006, remember the mark we made on the world, and remember that we, as Australians, can do even better.
Racism in soccer is alive and breeding successfully across soccer stadiums in the Americas and Europe. From Nazi flags to White Pride banners and discriminatory language towards colored players.
It has happened to Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto'o, Carlos Kameni, Rio Ferdinand, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ronaldinho, and dozens, if not hundreds more. This needs to stop.
There are rumours that Peter Crouch will be allowed to leave Liverpool FC this summer. This would be a tragic waste of human resources. If you are unconvinced please witness the following show-reel:
We all love El Nino, but there's nothing like a bit of Crouchy magic. Get them moving together - just imagine - Torres doing the macarena and the big man busting out the robot!
Don't let him go to Portsmouth, Aston Villa or Everton - he'll be the one scoring the goals against us next year and we'll be left wondering what could have been...
The Cougar Board is not allowing Tanner or Jared Monroe to play Cougar football in the upcoming 2008 season. The board is refusing to abide by a signed letter from the Monroe Parents.
The parents have agreed to the boards terms, they will not coach or be team mom, they will not send mass emails if boys are allowed to play, and they have already sent out a mass apology as requested by the board. However, the board refused to honor the letter.
The Cougar organization is a public youth sport program and needs to honor the right of kids to play football. Censor the parents not the kids!!!
Please help get the boys back in the Cougar program. Please stand together in unity and let the board know we will not accept children being kicked out of our program.
West Bromwich Albion Football Club has a proud heritage dating back 130 years to 1878. We are five times winners of the F.A. Cup (1888, 1892, 1931, 1954, 1968) and the only team to achieve promotion to the first division in the same season as winning the F.A cup (1930/31).
It sullies the image and reputation of this great club to have to play in a kit defaced by corporate sponsorship.
Quote from Straits Times: "Football fans will have to pay more to get their weekly fix of quality matches on TV, but that's the reality they will have to live with."
Is it a reality we have to live with? Perhaps, but not without a fight nor a say!
We paid, without making a fuss, for additional fees to watch 2006 World Cup. Unwittingly and unwillingly, we again obliged with StarHub raising from $15 to $25 a month. Can you predict what is going to happen to Euro 2008 and subsequent years?
This trend has to stop! As an individual, we are nothing. Collectively, we can OVER-POWER the service providers. I quote an extract from the recent Taiwan President election, "... The people are the masters."
If we (the subscribers, the pay-masters) show the service providers our unity, we can get back both EPL and Champions League, at the current rate of $25 per month.
Sign the Petition and Inform your friends today! With enough signatures, we will send a CLEAR message to the service providers
Rushden and East Northants Council plan to intergrate The Pemberton Centre and Splash Pool into a single leisure centre on Manor Park - the site of Rushden's existing rugby club.
Andy Mercer, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, says: "This is terrific news for Rushden – the new centre will replace the Splash Pool and Pemberton Centre, which both need upgrading, but which are short of space for expansion. It will provide state of the art leisure facilities for Rushden, Higham Ferrers, Irthlingborough and the surrounding villages."
210. Save NFL Films
"We created a way of portraying the game," Steve Sabol said 2 years ago. That "way" has helped turn the NFL into an $8 billion-a-year cash cow that has left baseball and college football and every other sport in its dust.
That "way" has helped the Sabols and NFL Films win an impressive 92 Emmys over the years, with another 14 nominations announced earlier this month. But the layoffs earlier this month of 21 NFL Films employees was the latest indication that many in the league may think that "way" has outlived its usefulness.
There is a belief by many that the league is phasing out the quality filmmaking that NFL Films has become famous for over the years. Steve Bornstein, the former ESPN chief who was brought in by the league to run NFL Media, which includes the NFL Network, NFL.com and NFL Films, has shown less and less interest in Films' signature programming, according to several league sources.
He has indicated, the sources said, it's too expensive to make and that there isn't a market out there for it anymore.
BULLSHIT NFL! YOU GAINED A LOT OF MONEY FROM THOSE TV CONTRACTS, AND RECORD CONTRACTS etc.
