Hello. Thanks for visiting. My name is Chawupi Kalinga. I’m a football fan and though I do enjoy the game an awful lot, I try take neither it nor the people who make a living from it too seriously. I plan to include here posts on a variety of topics from the world of football. I live in England but hope not to run afoul of the temptation to restrict my posts to the Premier League. I’m a translator by profession and hope from time to time to mine the Italophone, Francophone and Hispanophone presses for stories and details that might not have garnered much attention in the UK or the broader Anglophone world. I also at some point plan to start looking at topics in Japanese football. I lived there for a time and curse myself for not having followed the local game more closely.

I hope you enjoy what you find here and will be kind enough to pay a return visit once in a while. This site is still young and in a process of growth and transformation. It shall likely alter somewhat in form in the not too distant future and I shall be returning to this page to acknowledge in shifts in purpose, focus and tone.

I would like to point out that some of what you find here is intended to be satirical in nature and SHOULDN’T BE TAKEN TOO SERIOUSLY. In addition, I do use many pictures that I have found on the internet. If you are the owner of any of these pictures and would like me either to remove them or credit them properly please be kind enough to let me know.

I can be reached at luxuryplayerblog (at) gmail (dot) com. Congratulations, queries and lucrative contracts are all welcome.

With that done, let me wish you happy reading!

    Kosuke Kimura is a well loved Japanese player for the Colorado Rapids. My favorite MLS team. He’s had some national team call UPS, so hope there’s more to come.
