The Croatians I knew around Lidcombe were all soccer mad.
Hence why Liverpool FC is my obsession and my number 1 sporting team. I even named my son after my favorite Liverpool player, Robbie Fowler. When people say Robbie Farah's mood depends on how Liverpool plays, I totally get it cause I'm EXACTLY the same way.
One of my brother's Irish Pommy in laws from LIverpool had a funeral of a young guy and it may have been conducted in a church but it was a Liverpool FC funeral. All the paraphernalia was Liverpool, a scarf draped the coffin on the way down. He was outfitted in their gear. The flowers were their colours.

I named my son after Charles Darwin and now as an adult he loves it.
Mmmmmpphh. I am going to let that comment about genetics and darwinism go through to the keeper
he is a bigger chess champion than I am if that answers any questions

Likewise, I'm a Liverpool supporter, but the Tigers are my number 1, rest of the family are all soccer mad

I used to love the Serbian "chess" cafe at Cabramatta - one of my favourite hide outs in Sydney. Bet $300 a game and even riots sometimes. Their rugby league team lost to Filipino team a few years back - was a great game by the Pinoys.

In that era an Englishman could virtually just step off the boat as a tourist and stay here. We got many a good tradesmen via the TPP.

Good times BFF. Love the chess cafes. Cabramatta was plagued with crime in the 90's unfortunately (see 5T, Paul Newman, heroin, Serbian/Vietnamese gangs). Times are changing though, and by all accounts, Cabramatta is enjoying a revival due to a clean-up of the area and hipster culinary reviews..

Love my Filos. Delightful people.

I was their from 2,000 when it was still on - didn't worry me, I would dob the dealers into cops and they would be yelling out they would kill me when being marched out by the cops. All the Viets would dob me into the dealers to clear themselves. I had to hassle the cops about a dozen times to come when business was hot- it gave me the impression that they may have been on the take. My unit did somersaults in price once the place was cleaned up.

If someone was dying in the street many people just ignored them (it was usually an unfortunate Aussie, never seen a Viet.). The Viet unit owners would dob me in to the dealers for dobbing them in to the cops so they would not cop the flak. I had a knife stabbed into my front door once but didn't care poop about that.
