Lucky, I agree with you on most of your post.
I've been to Jester's matches, it's flippin' hot and humid even at 7:00 p.m. IF MLS adopted the "rest-of-the-world" football schedule it might be bearable, but April to November? Would be difficult.
The Jesters draw about 1,000 people per match, or ...

This is sort of the trend in Europe, too. Of course that's at the professional level and they're adding office blocks, shopping malls and hotels to their stadia. Anyone who doesn't is "missing out on revenue streams" or "out dated" etc. as these areas are open even when the stadium has no event....

We're going down, unless this Greek striker can score like he does at Olympiakos.
Poor Mark Hughes, was decent at Fulham, but left because FFC has "no ambition" so he goes to QPHaHa and gets the sack, now to Stoke where he's in the shite like Fulham is (we weren't when he left.)

I like it, as I am fond of collared football shirts, always have been. I grew up in the 70s and 80s and seen my share of people "dressing up" in v-neck velour shirts V-neck kits always remind me of those days. Yes I look back fondly on my youth, but not some of the terrible clothing styles.

That's partly true Homey. I admin. a Fulham group on Facebook. And every few days, someone takes a swipe at us Yanks. Then we hammer them using all the proper footie jargon; following that I usually post the "Not this shite Again" meme and tell them to sod off. They often back down, a little bit.
