Cardiff in the news. Malky was a racist.

http://prosoccertalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/20/malky-mackay-and-iain-moody-investigated-by-fa-for-sexist-racist-and-homophobic-text-messages-while-at-cardiff-city/

According to the Daily Mail, Mackay and Moody were under investigation for eight controversial transfers – totaling around $75 million – made by the duo while at Cardiff in 2013. As part of that investigation, Cardiff hired Mishcon de Reya to perform an investigation into the transfers, which revealed that $4.5 million was withheld in payments due to agents.

The investigation also turned up 70,000 text messages and 100,000 emails in connection to alleged wrongdoing related to transfers. Mackay and Moody were told that Cardiff were in possession of these messages, which have since been passed along to the FA as per rules requiring clubs to report any matters that may constitute ‘aggravated misconduct’.

Below are bullet-points of the alleged remarks, which contain sexist, racist and homophobic language:

In July 2012, Cardiff signed South Korean international Kim Bo-kyung, but when Moody informed Mackay on July 12 that ‘five of the b******s including the player’ were arriving for talks, the reply from Mackay’s phone was: ‘Fkn chinkys.’ A further message says: ‘Fk it. There’s enough dogs in Cardiff for us all to go around.’

In reference to the prominent football agent, Phil Smith, a text states: ‘Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers’. The Israeli club, Maccabi Tel Aviv, are also referred to simply as ‘the Jews’.

A football official at another club is referred to as ‘a gay snake’ and ‘the homo’ and someone who is ‘not to be trusted’, while a French player is someone ‘who struck me as an independently minded young homo’.

An exchange with a young player who has a female agent makes reference to a sex act and states: ‘I hope she’s looking after your needs,’ the player is then told. ‘I bet you’d love a bounce on her falsies.’

On August 16, 2012, a list of players proposed by a French agent is forwarded, stating to Mackay that ‘he needs to rename his agency the All Blacks’. A separate text in reference to a list of French players states: ‘Not many white faces amongst that lot but worth considering.’

In a separate exchange a picture entitled ‘Black Monopoly’ is sent, with every square a ‘Go To Jail’ square. Of one African player, it is stated: ‘Doesn’t look like a good cv. And he’s Nigerian.’

"My uncle is from Trinidad, so, ever since I was 7, I grew up listening to Soca, the genre that's from there. It's my favorite sound. So, we put a band together and we would play Soca … and then I would go up and play my little pop songs (laughs). It was fun!"

http://www.idolator.com/7530699/meghan-trainor-all-about-that-bass-interview

So, I have a lot of different genres, and then my uncle is Trinidadian. He came into our family when I was seven. From seven years old, I’ve been studying soca and calypso and reggae. So with that, with the disco, with the old-school, with the pop — I think that’s what you got right now.

Goals By Caribbean's Caesar, Picault, and Laing Highlight International Performances in NASL Week 6 Action
 
NEW YORK (August 18, 2014) - The international stars continue to shine in the North American Soccer League (NASL) as Caribbean players Trevin Caesar (Trinidad & Tobago), Fafà Picault (Haiti), and Lance Laing (Jamaica) all scored key goals for their respective teams in Week 6 NASL Fall Season action.
 
Within two minutes of coming into the game as a substitute, Trinidad & Tobago international Caesar scored for the visiting San Antonio Scorpions in their 1-1 draw against Ottawa Fury FC at TD Place on Sunday. The result kept the Scorpions even on points with Minnesota United FC atop the NASL Fall Season Table, and put them just three points away from first place in the NASL Combined Table.
 
On Saturday, Week 6 action kicked off with Jamaican international Laing notching FC Edmonton's first tally, which sparked a 3-2 comeback victory over the Carolina RailHawks at WakeMed Soccer Park. English midfielder Ritchie Jones also scored for the Eddies, who snapped a five-game road skid with the win.
 
Picault, who has been called up by the Haitian National Team for a friendly next month, scored the equalizer for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in a 1-1 draw against the Atlanta Silverbacks at Lockhart Stadium. Uruguayan midfielder Martin Núñez played provider on the goal, setting up Picault in front of the net.
 
Rounding out the standout performances from Saturday's Week 6 encounters was Brazilian midfielder Daniel Mendes, whose goal helped extend Minnesota United FC's 10-game unbeaten streak in a 5-1 win over visiting Indy Eleven at NSC Stadium. Former Brazilian WorldCup winner Kléberson had the only tally for Indy in the loss. Meanwhile, defender Tamika Mkandawire, a native of Malawi, scored the eventual game-winner for the Tampa Bay Rowdies in their victory over the visiting New York Cosmos. Bulgarian forward Stefan Dimitrov found the net for the Cosmos in their first loss to the Rowdies since 1984.
 
Every week throughout the 2014 Season, the NASL puts its international stars - both coaches & players - under the 'NASL International Spotlight,' which focuses on the league's overseas connections.

Greetings! 

This is Mrs. Andre and we are thinking about getting a beginner steel pan for our daughter (age 3 - and well I am sure Mr. Andre will be playing with it too - ha ha ha).  I can't find anything else comparable on the internet.  Do you guys think this thing is worthwhile?

nice article on former England int'l Ricky Hill. used to watch him play back in the day.

http://www.rowdiessoccer.com/news/detail/uuid/fsfsinvq3m4q17fh14gubxbrd#.Uv08FGJdVPI

When Albert Johansson died homeless, penniless and abandoned by his family in West Yorkshire two decades ago, almost no one in Tampa Bay paid any heed.  But the obscurity of his death cannot negate the global impact of his life.  Indeed, Johansson’s trailblazing odyssey on the other side of the Atlantic half-a-century earlier triggered worldwide ripples of repercussions that still, to this day, reverberate through the soccer field at Downtown St. Petersburg’s Al Lang Stadium.

“I was just 5-years-old, watching a small black and white TV.  The year was 1964,” recalled Rowdies head coach Ricky Hill.  “I still remember it like it was yesterday.  I asked my older brother, ‘Who is that?  Who is that?’  I was so excited!  Albert Johansson was the first soccer player I had ever seen who looked… like me.”

Albert Johansson shattered England’s racial barrier and became the first person of African heritage to play in the FA Cup final.  Ricky Hill was – and of course, still is – of African heritage himself.

“Watching that soccer game forever changed my life,” Hill added.

It forever changed Tampa Bay’s sports history as well.

Coach Hill’s story began a generation earlier: “This has never been reported anywhere, but my grandparents were originally from India,” he revealed.  “My family name is actually ‘Sukie.’  But after immigrating to Jamaica, they worked the land that belonged to a gentleman named Mr. Hill.  Mr. Hill didn’t have any children of his own, so before he died he asked my grandfather to adopt his surname.  And that’s how our last name became ‘Hill.”

His father grew-up in Jamaica in a large, sprawling family with four brothers and five sisters.  “He was the only one who married a black Jamaican,” Coach Hill reminisced.  “All the others married Indians.  So even during family gatherings, my household always looked, well, a little different from the rest.”
In the aftermath of World War II, England was in ruins, its population decimated.  Third world immigrants flocked to the island nation to help it rebuild.  Among the many immigrants were Coach Hill’s mother and father....
