Sounders are almost late '70s Cosmo like. Impressive.

Sounders are the benchmark there is no question. Over 42K average per game is nearly double the second highest average in the league.

Course all for not as they will bow out in the single game knockout vs the 'Caps....(awaiting blowback).

To recap the weekend from my perspective.

Thank you Chivas USA.

Finally Cagliari gets a win - thank you Torino.

46 and counting for Juve.

Spurs keep rolling along.

Messi 2 - 2 Ronaldo (oh ya plus another 20 decent players played too). Most impressive is that Pepe almost lasted the game before a yellow card.

I know the Cosmos would get huge crowds. It is a shame the league could not maintain momentum. I believe there were some serious league management problems too.

Damn just tried to link to some youtube videos and it didn't work -- will try again later.

I went to games with 75,000 to 80,000 people. It was amazing. I just remember the girls in their short shorts and they were hot.

Ha! I was an avid Shoot reader too. Seems that magazine went downhill at some stage? Or did we grow up?

Mine was delivered to U.S. (by boat, I think!) and typically arrived a month or so after publication. I devoured that thing, as it was my only connection to 'Eurpoean' footaball in the pre-internet days. Is it still around?

haven't really bought jerseys in a long while save some ebay stuff from indonesia or thailand some 5 years back, but a new study by a leading sports & marketing research agency has revealed the top-selling club football shirts from the world’s two biggest sporting brands. Compiled by Dr. Peter Rohlmann, these figures show the yearly average sales encompassing 2007-08 to 2011-12

Shoot changed ownership and also changed style completely. It may be a monthly now or even a quarterly, more for young kids I think. It used to be very well written and some of the big stars of the time had personal columns. Reading Shoot is how I learnt English as a young teenager in a frozen Swedish backwater. The magazine was amazingly sold by a local tobacco shop in my small city and i had my copy reserved every week for years. smile.gif
