“If they want their son to be a professional footballer, they send him out to the street.”

Soccerati’s own Sangyfarha on why Club America fans mean more to US Soccer than American Chelsea fans:

Anti-Chelsea Postgame at The Lodge

Where better to celebrate a victory drown your sorrows than at a tiddie bar filled with fans of the team you were unsuccessfully rooting against? Add multiple vodka tonics and a penchant for violence and you’ve got a winner … but not before a Chelsea fan tries to make nice by offering up his Samsung blue in exchange for Sangyfarha’s red. Fortunately a drunken Syrian steps in to broker the peace.

A poetic statement on football’s international diversity and an American trying to come to grips with riot mentality and a conflicting desire for women in 8-inch heels.
