football is radical

Σήμερα στη Νέα Σμύρνη, οι οπαδοί του Πανιωνίου και του Απόλλων Σμύρνης, αντί για κλωτσιές αντάλλαξαν κασκόλ.
-Ειναι περισσοτερα αυτα που μας ενώνουν παρα αυτα που μας χωρίζουν-
Saudi football team fail to observe minute's silence for London Bridge attack victims

Minute’s silence for London terror [victims], Saudi players wandering around like they don’t give a f***. Saudi fans shouting the whole time.

Some users claimed that observing silences ahead of football matches was not a part of Saudi culture. However, Saudi side Al-Ahli Saudi FC observed a minute of silence ahead of their Qatar Airways Cup match against Barcelona last year.

Absolute animals. Can’t even muster up the bare minimum of pretending to show respect for a single minute on live international tv.

Diversity in football : a blogroll

@footybedsheets : the blog of woc writer Shireen Ahmed. Featuring her work and international news about diversity and accessibility in sports.

@redcardhomophobia : the url is pretty clear. The blog covers homophobia in football and the initiatives to fight it.

@offsideplays : a blog to « expose the everyday occurrences of racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, disability and other forms of discrimination that take place in sport and physical activity ».

@footfeminin : in english despite the url, focuses on the history of women’s football. Expect a lot of old school black and white pictures and gifs.

@soccergenderandsexuality : exactly what it says on the tin. Apparently a school project, it’s a collection of external articles.

@footballisradical : covers « the frequent collisions between football and radical politics ».

@rebelfootball : focuses on political and social protests in football matches, with a focus on anti-fascism.

The last three blogs are no longer updated, but they are well worth a read, and most of their articles are still very relevant.


Hiii so i know i haven’t posted imagines for a really long time, but lately i have kind of been obsessing over punk one direction. hopefully im not alone in this bc i can really imagine it.
