So what is everyone´s expectations with the upcoming World Cup? I´m concerned with the possibility of protests, as tensions continue to grow in Brazil. And it´s an election year, with our president and state government being largely criticized, not least of all due to hosting the WC AND the Summer Olympics of 2016 in a country where health care and education are falling apart, public transport has reached an all-time low, and security is constantly at risk.
All of that doesn't stop the U.S. from hosting events. ;)

Have Liverpool blowin' it? We can only hope so.

I was hoping they were going to win the English league, as they have played the better footie all season, but then their supporters were giving it big over the Easter weekend.

"It's our's" and "It's coming home", then the killer "We only need to beat Chelsea". Well they f**ked that up today and they still need to play the not so mighty Magpies. Oh it would be so nice to beat them on the last day of the season to deprive them of the title.

I'll wake up in a moment.

Man City have won it today, and deservedly so IMO. Man Utd won't be playing European football next season, which is quite funny to think.

City came back admirably during the second half of the season and fully deserve to be champs, agreed.  They have a fantastic manager as well.  I would've ultimately loved Liverpool to have done it but it was so close and that fateful slip from SG was all it took.  Better luck next season guys.

Ok i'm dumbfounded - I watched the premier league this whole season for the first time.  I'm hooked.  However I just saw a HBO Real Sports episode highlighting the insane racism shown by European fans and it made me furious.  I had no idea such blatant racial hatred against black players existed in Europe. Certainly they weren't highlighting this on the highlight shows. Pelting the black players with bananas / doing monkey call chants / chanting the "N" word.  :wtf:
I'm not so naive to think this stuff didn't exist, but to see this allowed in the stadiums is quite another thing. I don't think this is happening with premier league teams but for any club to allow large sections of Neo-Nazi's leading the racial hatred is unacceptable. I do believe each club owner should be responsible for the conduct of their fans and if they don't do anything that team should be relegated.  Each league should have a promotional ad campaign snuffing this s**t out.  If the clubs can't solve it then they should be shut down :facepalm:
