First ladies

E 37

A wise once said, “If you want to have done something right so let women do it”
The first team girls in Liverpool Football Club Ladies
they won this week the english soccer league for the second year in a row.
Last match day was exciting three teams had the chance where LFC was the black horse.
Success doesn’t happen by itself – it must be canvassed.
So well done, girls – or ladies – first ladies.

There could have been better attendance of the onlookers – the ladies had deserved it.

Excited mood from Anfield in connection with the men’s team match
let’s hope the ladies’ success has or will inspire the men to follow up.
You’ll never walk alone.

Travel Theme Red (Anfield)

With excellent inspiration from Ailsa’s blog just look “Where’s my backpack

my version of the theme of the challenge “Red” 

Anfield, the real home of the “red-men” from Liverpool.

(credit this image: “thisisanfield.com”) 

Part of Liverpool, Merseyside England, with Stanley Park in the center 
behind seen the blue fort Goodison Park (Everton FC)
and in front of the red fort Anfield (Liverpool FC) 
Anfield is the oldest of the city’s two great soccer facilities
and Everton FC oldest of the 2 soccer clubs.

The short story:
(link to the long one at Wiki and at LFC homesite)

Anfield was originally owned by John Orrell, a minor land owner who was a friend of a member of Everton FC John Houlding – Everton FC, who previously played at Priory Road, were in need of a new venue owing to the noise produced by the crowd on match days – so therefore was Anfield established in 1884 and Everton FC leased in for a small rental price – some years later, the rental price raised up a few hundred british £ – that was Everton FC dissatisfied with and negotiations to purchase the land at Anfield from Orrell escalated into a dispute between John Houlding (which was chairman) and the Everton F.C. committee over how the club was run 
this ended up in Everton FC terminated the lease and established Goodison Park
and John Houlding, who in the meantime had become owner of Anfield, left Everton FC.
as a consequence of this disagreement..

And John Houlding was left with an empty stadium,
and decided to form a new club to occupy it
the new team was called Liverpool FC and founded in 1892.

Liverpool FC’s traditional colors are red, but initially the team played wearing blue and white jerseys – at the beginning of the 1900s they began to play with red shirts and white shorts (the colors of socks changed over the years from black, red and white) – during manager Bill Shanklys time the famous all red attire was introduced.

Before a Europapean match against Anderlecht in 1964 came Bill Shankly into the locker room and asked the squad wear a pair of red shorts, who would match the red jersey.

The idea was that it would have a psychological effect – would “make” the players larger and more dangerous from the opponents view and make them nervous.

Shankly liked what he saw, and when the players suggested that they should have red stockings too, was the classic Liverpool-born costume.

and so the “Red-men” was born.

Racisme fås den også i sort..?

Ofte virker det som visse ord bli’r modeord og måske nærmest bli’r voldtaget eller manipuleret så meget at selve ordet mister al sin værdi på grund af en nærmest hjernevask af det på gældende ord – listen er lang af ord der har været gennem vridemaskinen – velfærd, ytringsfrihed. sex, danskhed, solidaritet, ydmyg osv.

så de efterhånden er kommet på listen over klicher 

og stærk på vej over på listen over floskler hvis de ikke allerede er der 

næste ord i vridemaskinen: “racisme”…?

Især engelsk fodbold er blevet skueplads for racisme

eller er det måske mere

for  er der gået popsnmart mode i ordet…?

en kendsgerning er det i hvert fald at såkaldte autoriteter

i det her tilfælde det engelske fodboldforbund FA

vist har mistet sin autoritet

sport er jo ikke altid sort.hvid i kampens hede

ordet “racisme” er vel også et ord

der for dem med skjulte agendaer

kan tigge om manipulation

og lamme selv sport
