Soccer World On Hold
March 30, 2020. Yep, it's all shut down. Premier
League, MLS and GPSD - all
the elite leagues are in suspended animation for an indefinite period.
It's all been Corona'd. GPSD's initial match cancellation directive runs
to April 8th, but the GPSD board is
meeting today to decide whether to schedule an abbreviated spring
session, beginning in May. The idea of pushing the Spring Season into
the summer months has been rejected. The very real possibility is that
everything is cancelled until fall.
La Paz Tournament A Big Success!
March 20, 2020. Thanks in large part to organizer Mike Calder and the cordial cooperation of La Asociación Sudcaliforniana de Futbol (ASFA) (our La Paz counterparts) the La Paz Tournament was a very enjoyable experience for all players and significant others who made the journey. The last FC77 stragglers pulled out of Baja on March 17th according to Mike. He and Mary Anne are staying on for another three weeks or so.
Thanks to Old Nick's Richard and Tammy Black, you can vicariously experience the tournament through their excellent picture-taking.

The Social Network
For those who think web sites and even blogs are hopelessly old fashioned, your Club also has a FC77 Facebook page. Mark Zuckerberg will be so pleased!
Old School Soccer
March 30, 2020. As we mope about our homes, waiting for the virus all-clear, we need our soccer fix. This month, the Timbers have been rebroadcasting past matches on FOX 12 on Sundays at 3 pm.
The streaming services can provide some relief in the form of soccer-related content. The most recent is Netflix's dramatic 6-part mini series called The English Game. The setting is late 1870's England and we are watching football go from a gentleman's team sport to the sport of the working class. Worth a look.
