The Feindouno Affair E-mail
Written by Hiral Bhatt   

It has been an extremely sorry sight to see Pascal Feindouno move to Qatar after the circus that was his transfer to Al-Sadd. Its not so much the transfer that is the problem, but rather, the fact that not a single club within the major leagues in Europe thought it wise enough to make a move for Feindouno. Granted, Feindouno's occasional histrionics will not enamour him to all (his red card ans suspension in the Nations Cup cost him dearly), and he had stagnated slightly at St Etienne over the last year. But that is because he should have moved a year ago.

Feindouno is an absolutely superb player, an offensive midfielder in its purest form. Creative, athletic able to score goals and run an offence. His loss to the growing, increasingly important arab leagues is a major loss to Europe. We can only hope he makes his return soon. He is only 27, at has his best years ahead of him.

Here Woodward gives NAS readers a sneak peak at the introduction of Black People Don't Play Soccer?
