That's not particularly surprising of course. What I found a bit interesting was ...

No word on what he will be discussing, ...

Hello

I've decided to set up a blog where I can occasionally write longer pieces than what is allowed on Twitter (at least without having to write 32 separate Tweets). This blog will be mostly focused on news/analysis/opinion of various legal happenings in the Soccerverse. Mainly United States soccer, with a sprinkling of FIFA-based nonsense where ...
