Egyptian Unrest Spreads to England

Thanks to my daughter playing club soccer and us watching the World Cup games last year, I've become a big soccer fan. We subscribed to and have been watching English Premier League games. Upon consulting a friend who's an experienced fan, we decided to root for Newcastle United as their colors are black and white, just like our Maximum Leader.

Honestly, what else could we have chosen?

Newcastle play decent football and are in the middle of the pack in the league. They recently traded one of their top goal scorers and then yesterday had another of their strikers go down with an injury as they lost to an inferior team. Naturally, this set off a firestorm of criticism on the Newcastle United blog, leading to this suggestion that fans use techniques honed in Egypt on the owners ...
agreed dan we need these 2 cockney spivs out cairo style
Cairo style?!? The rioting hasn't even played itself out and already there's a term coined. Meanwhile, in Newcastle, it looks like they're ready to storm the gates.

Or maybe not.
