HRVATSKA 1 : 4 ENGLESKA

Zagreb, Croatia

Above: From the high-brow UK daily, The Sun, a great shot of the scoreboard in Zagreb, Croatia last night. The Jamnica mark evokes a strong European nostalgia.
The English victory itself? A formidable Italian Job!

Above: Again from The Sun, a shot at the new owner(s) of The Manchester City Football Club. A more or less jingoistic response to the realities of the modern game, where teams are bought and sold as baubles for the super-rich elite. Local or national identity can no longer be ascribed financial value. In the larger game, modern owners look to the world as a fan base (and sales target).

Quo vadis, Domine?
