    there will be at least 15 english people that are just slightly more than mildly concerned about it ..... the manager, the starting 11, and the 3 potential substitutes



    international football just hasn't cut the mustard with us brits since '96 - we don't even have a cultural footballing identity anymore (which is probably our problem)

    not usually a fan of yahoo's "journalism" in any way, but i thought this one was worth sharing .....

    to coincide with the release of star wars 8, they prepared a fantasy football xi of star wars related footballers - i've whited out the proper names for any names not so recognizable

    jar jar toure = ya ya toure
    jabba the hutton = alan hutton
    lando donovan = landon donovan
    c3 pirlo = andrea pirlo
    john obi wan mikel = john obi mikel
    princess weah = george weah
    ewok origi = divock origi
    millenium falcao = radamel falcao
    r2 boruc = artur boruc
    steve sithwell = steve sidwell
    chewbacary sagna = bacary sagna

    some of these fall a bit flat - i'm sure we could come up with some better suggestions - han kwang-solo perhaps (couldn't work out a way make hope solo work)? - darth crooks? - qui-gon jimmy hill?
