Sitters!!


1) Identify the guy being arrested!

2) what is this island and put fundae!


3) The X were _______ football players of the late 19th Century who moved south to play for clubs participating in the English Football League during the period when football had become professional in England but remained (theoretically) amateur in ________

The origin of the name was based upon the distinctive _______ style of play – described at the time as being “combination football” – which was centred upon a passing game with greater teamwork as opposed to the individualistic, dribbling style common in England at the time. It was this distinctive style of football – which has been described as "changing the nature of soccer" – which had become the hallmark of the __________ game of the era. The ability of the _______ players, their apparently superior technique, and the nature of their play impressed English spectators during the _______ – England international fixtures which had been taking place since 1872 and led to a great number of ______ players moving south to play professionally for English clubs once this became legal in 1885.

This trend was, along with professionalism generally, bitterly opposed by much of the ________ footballing establishment and media. The latter saw the X described as “Traitorous wretches” and “base mercenaries” in the press with the ________ Football Association blacklisting players known to have played professionally. However professionalism was eventually established in _______ football in 1893 although _______’s most powerful club and founders of both the passing and international game, Y, initially refused to participate in the new professional league (not joining until 1900) and remained committed to the amateur principles even after entering into competition with professional clubs. They remain an amateur club to this day.
