IS BLATTER THE MUBARAK OF WORLD FOOTBALL?

Joseph "Sepp" Blatter, President of FIFA

These last days when I read so much about cases of corruption related to football and then I knew that Blatter was the only one to be elected and that he finally was elected, well, all this reminded me a lot of some corrupted dictatorships like the one of Mubarak.

I cannot understand why real democracies around the world let the current FIFA die and create a new order for football. Who the heck is representing Mr. Blatter?

MUBARAK REGIME WAS FORCE TO LEAVE. Why is FIFA and Mr. Blatter still unchallenged? Sincerely, I have the feeling that mr. Blatter and his organization are laughing at us. Like Mubarak did with the Egyptians.

Thousands and thousands of people around the world fill the stadiums around the world but none of these seem to have the courage to challenge this outdated institution called FIFA. Well, who knows, his current survival is just a hint of the kind of people who fill the stadiums.


FOOTBALL UNITES ARGENTINA AND ENGLAND

Joseph "Sepp" Blatter, President of FIFA

😦 BLATTER REELECTED AGAIN 😦

These last hours something quite amusing has happened. When you think about England and Argentina it is easy to imagine a big rivalry in fottball.

These last hours however one of the Gods of Argentina, MARADONA has spoken against current FIFA and its curruption! As you may know almost all the planet has “undemocratically” chosen again Blatter for FIFA. Maradona is not happy with this.

The amusing thing is that the only national association who spoke against Blatter election was the FA. The Football Association (the English have the privilege to have this name for their football association!)

I know this is a crazy dream. But I would have loved that Argentina and England had decided to left together FIFA! The two rivals together just against an organization full of corruption!

Maradona and the FA, the God from Argentina and the FA from England, deserve all my respect.

ALL MY LOVE TO ARGENTINA, ALL MY LOVE TO ENGLAND. SHAME TO FIFA!


WILL FIFA TSUNAMI REACH FC BARCELONA?

Josep Guardiola

GUARDIOLA SUPPORTED THE BID OF QATAR 2022 AND THE SPONSING BY QATAR FOUNDATION

Josep Guardiola, the coach  the current Champions League winner team, FC BARCELONA, was a supporter of the bid Qatar 2022. Some months ago it supported to the deal with the Qatar Foundation which means that the new tshirt of Barça will show Qatar Foundation on its front (Unicef goes to the back, near the bottom)

AsQatar is a dictatorship where homosexuals go to jail and where woman feww rights and where Al Jeezera in Arabic censors gay issues and Al Jezeera in general likes to talk about Arab spring but not when it is so close, well, for all thses reasons I opposed the dealing with Qatar. Needless to say that people here just see Guardiola as a God so whatever he does or says it is right so the dealing with Qatar Foundation has few opposers.

Now we have this scandal in FIFA with accusations of brivery for Qatar 2022.

As Barcelona coach supported that bid and as barcelona will show “Qatar Foundation” on its shirt I just would like to hear an explanation from Bará and Guardiola.

I find outrageous that a club from barcelona is sponsored by a dictatorship which is homophobic, has few rights for women and, who knows, may be discharge of Qatar 2022 because of possible curruption.

I think Bará cannot stop silent anymore. WHERE ARE THE VALUES OF FC BARCELONA?


I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ABOUT FOOTBALL BUT I WOULD START BACK FROM SQUARE ONE

I do not understand much but all these last news about FIFA make me think that we should get rid of FIFA! And start all from scratch! Football cannot continue like this.

Anyway, it is not my business. I do not follow football games. But I feel it is a disgrace what is happening at the top.

I thought sport was a good thing …


MENTRE CATALUNYA DORM …

Mentre Catalunya dorm merescudament  després de que Barça guanyés la  Champions lluny de Catalunya s’està coent una escandalera que potser quans ens despertem d’aquest dolç somni de Champions ens agafi un mica de sorpresa.

Tinc la sensació que en els propers dies o hores pot haver una revolució en el món del futbol. Aquesta revolució podria afectar i molt al Barça ja que aquesta revolució podria embrutar i molt el nom d’un petit emirat anomenat Qatar.

Podria ser que en les properes setmanes l’escàndol sigui tan gran que Qatar perdi la candidatura pel mundial 2022. Si això passa i tenint en compte que Guardiola li va donar suport ja seria quelcom lamentable. Però el més preocupant és que el Barça, en uns dies, pot passar de lluir una samarreta d’UNICEF a una samarreta d’un lloc del món, Qatar, que pot estar sent la primera notícia a tots els diaris per haver-se provat que van subornar per comprar el mundial del 2022 i fins i tot per voler governar la FIFA.

Si mentre Catalunya dorm això passés el Barça es trobaria en una situació gens agradable perquè milions de persones estarien ofeses pel fet que Qatar no pugués fer el mundial del 2022. El món àrab estaria molt emprenyat i altra gent del món estaria emprenyada amb Qatar. I el Barça estaria al mig de tot per tenir publicitat de la Qatar Foundation.

Amb ho fàcil que hagués estat no portar publicitat de Qatar. N’hi hagués hagut prou en trobar reprobable, TAMBÉ …, portar publicitat d’un lloc que és dictatorial, homòfob i masclista.

Tinc la sensació que això de la Qatar Foundation serà el negoci que més car li acabarà sortint al barça. Ningú regala res. I menys Qatar …


TRENCARÀ EL BARÇA AMB LA QATAR FOUNDATION SI QATAR ES CONVERTEIX EN SINÓNIM DE SUBORN AL MÓN DEL FUTBOL?

Cada hora que passa el món del futbol se’n va embolicant, lmenys a les altes esferes. Això em fa pensar que podria passar que al final el mundial del 2022 a Qatar acabés no fent-se davant de possibles suborns. A la FIFA cada dia surt una notícia gens agradable.

 

Tenint en compte que Guardiola va donar suport a Qatar 2022 i que ha donat suport a que el Barça porti a la samarreta publictat també de Qatar em pregunto què faria el Barça si Qatar acaba sent sinònim de joc brut.

El fet que Qatar sigui una dictadura, que els homosexuals vagin a la presó i que les dones tinguin els seus drets limitats sembla que no ha estat cap problema per a Rosell i Guardiola alhora de portat la Qatar Foundation a la samarreta. Però què faran si Qatar cau en desgràcia per tot això dels suborns?

Si personalment ja em sembla molt lamentable portar publictat relacionada amb un emirat dictatorial, homòfob i masclista ja el fet que tot pugui fer també pudor a un emirat que compra mundials i on els suborns són el pa de cada dia ja no crec que em pogués indignar molt més.

 


Mohamed bin Hammam and the tshirt of FC Barcelona

First of all, let me congratulate current FC BARCELONA for winning the Champions League. I congratulate them for two reasons: One is for winning and the other to win it without still wearing Qatar Foundation on their tshirt.

Today I have read that Mohamed bin Hammam has been suspended by FIFA as they study some allegations of brivery.

Mohamed bin Hamman is not just related to football but also to Qatar.

The coach of Barcelona, Pep Guardiola supported the Qatar bid 2022 and he has publicly supported the sponsoring of Barça tshirt by the Qatar FoundatioN. He said that in Qatar there are injstices like everywhere (YEAH, HE IS RIGHT, IN BARCELONA, WE HOMOSEXUALS GO TO JAIL, TOO …) and that in QATAR people had freedom (freedom to go to jail if you are homosexual???)

I say all this because I find that it is not nice that Barça wears an ad from a dictatorship who puts homosexuals in jail and where the rights of woman are not precisely the best.

Just for thoses reasons I find that Qatar Foundation in the front of the tshirt is worng but now that I have read that Mohamed bin Hamman, from Qatar,  has been suspended by FIFA, I even see the deal between Qatar and Barcelona as a very hard blow.

Sometimes I try to see the things in the perspective of an international company like Barça. They have fans from around the world. It is obvious that their attachment with Qatar Foundation bring bring a lot of supporters from the Arab world. On the other hand their gay supporters to lose with this new tshirt are nothing in comparison with the number of new fans from Arab countries to win.

I understand that for a business is better milions of new Arab supporters than just three angry gay men from barcelona city annoyed with the deal.

But Barcelona headquarters are not in Qatar. They are in Barcelona! So I expect that a team that has its headquarters in barcelona complies with European rules. And I find it is discriminatory to accept a deal which would have never happened was Barceça a lgbt football team.

I am horriefied by the support that Barça has in catalonia and in other places. This club who believes to be “MORE THAN A CLUB” does not do anything to fight homophobia! In fact they just do the opposite: They have deals with Qatar.

And the worse is that now the shadow about Mohamed bin Hamman can make the new tshirt of FC BARCELONA even uglier.
