Here's one for the Footy fanaticists. Incidentally, my favourite team growing up, Manchester United, has as its mascot, the patron Satan of Freemasonry,
'The Freemasons have always been a secret society, whose large role as builders of our current man-made world is undisputable. Anyone who has done their research into the history of this famous group of Brethren understand that some of the world’s smartest & most powerful men have been Freemasons. In fact, their unique mason marks can be found in just about every fabric, stone, media & even the games in modern society that we all love to play & watch today. One of these Masonic created games that we know of as an English national pastime, is the game of Football. The Football Association was founded on 26 October 1863 at the Freemason’s Tavern (Arms) in London. This English game of ball then gave rise to a modern-day gladiator type sporting event played by men in tights & pads, with fierce-looking padded Spartan like helmets in an arena known as American football.
Here is a brief explanation about the origins of football from 33rd Degree Mason, Christopher L. Hodapp who is the author of “Freemasons For Dummies,” & “Solomon’s Builders: Freemasons.” He says on his blog: “Association football was born in 1863 at the Freemason’s Arms Pub near London’s Covent Garden, at 81-82 Long Acre. Six meetings were held at the pub to decide on rules & structure, & the meetings ended with a split between the new Football Association (“soccer” is said to be a truncated version of “association”) & the proponents of different rules that became rugby.
The Freemason’s Arms pub was built in 1860, & is still open today. It began life as the Freemason’s Tavern, which originally stood where the United Grand Lodge of England‘s New Connaught Rooms are today on Great Queen Street. London’s Freemasons’ Hall is literally right across the street.” The first game played in the states was at a Princeton-Rutgers football game in 1869 that was held under England’s “Football Association” rules, better known in North America as soccer. Later in 1874 the rules changed more to be like English rugby.
Both Freemasons & football players use special signals like that of the master mason sign seen on the above left, & the sign a referee makes for a goal. Masonic orders & football leagues are special societies for men only who wear special uniforms & have meetings, rituals under a highly formalized set of mysterious rules.'

run the world – but now the shadowy organisation is planning to rule the football field.
This week, the organisation’s Grand Master, the Duke of Kent, is set to grant a warrant for the first Football Lodge – a place where members meet – in Hampshire.
Players, managers & referees who are Masons will gather four times a year to listen to guest lecturers from the world of football as well as perform a series of Masonic rituals, though the organisation claims that many of the stereotypes, such as secret handshakes, are false….
Freemasons are also responsible for Premier League team Manchester City playing in blue. In 1894 the club was in a financial crisis & was bailed out by Masons, who asked that in return the team wear the Masonic colour of blue.
A petition to form a Football Lodge will be considered at this week’s meeting of the Grand Master’s Council.'
- Daily Mail, 8 November 2015
'ENGLAND star Adam Lallana's dad has become the founding master of Britain's newest footy-themed Masonic Lodge.
Long-standing freemason David Lallana has vowed to use The Football Lodge in Southamptron, Hants, to help the sport's grass roots.
The lodge - number 9921 - will meet four times a year in the Masonic province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight.
It is the fourth specialist lodge formed in the province in the last four years, following the launch of a scouting lodge, rugby lodge & a motorsports lodge.'
'History – Anfield Lodge & Football!
There is a strong link between football & Freemasonry. The first rules of football were drawn up by the new Football Association in six meetings at the end of 1863 at the Freemasons’ Tavern on Great Queen Street in London, now the New Connaught Rooms next door to Freemasons’ Hall. After the first match under the rules, in January 1864, a toast was drunk – how very masonic in itself – to ‘success to football, irrespective of class or creed’.
Many of the founding fathers of famous football clubs were Freemasons, none more notable than John Houlding, a brewer from Liverpool who owned the land on Anfield Road where Everton football club, founded in 1878, played from 1884 to 1892.
When they moved to their own ground at Goodison Park, Houlding filled the vacancy at Anfield by creating a new football team: Liverpool FC. Of the original six directors of the club, four were masons. Houlding, who also served as a Tory MP & Mayor of Liverpool, founded Anfield Lodge, No. 2215, & had been Master of Everton Lodge, No. 823, & Hamer Lodge, No. 1393….
But Sir Alf Ramsey & Joe Mercer were not the only England managers to be Freemasons.
Don Revie took on the job in 1974 after Mercer’s brief spell as Ramsey’s successor. Revie played for five clubs in his career, most notably for the strongly masonic Manchester City from 1951 to 1956…'

The thought police moved in on football years ago, it's now being used as the main vehicle for the Political Correctness Brigade in their crusade to END NATIONALISM amongst many other things.
This is from 6th April 2019 by the BBC;
'Raheem Sterling has been hailed as "an iconic British sports star" & "a trailblazer" after being named sportsman of the year at the 2019 British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards.
The England & Manchester City forward was praised for repeatedly speaking out against racism in football.'
If you ask me, most of the football hooliganism during the 1980's was orchestrated for the purposes of bringing us to the point we're at today. It was then, a series of disasters hit English football teams, in particular the above mentioned Liverpool FC. Firstly, there was a catastrophic fire at Bradford City's Valley Parade ground, West Yorkshire in the north of England on 11th May 1985 killing 56 people. 18 days later at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels, Belgium, 39 Juventus fans were crushed to death following crowd trouble at their game versus Liverpool. Then on April 15th 1989, 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death during a match at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. As someone from the north of England, I've already noted on my Blogs the frequency with which these disasters seem to hit this part of England compared to down south, for instance Manchester United are almost as famous for a 1958 plane crash in Munich, which wiped out most of their 1st team members as they are for their footballing skills, & incidentally, also in Aug 1985 there was an horrific plane crash at Manchester Airport killing 55 people. Coincidence? Possibly.
Some might say I'm clutching at straws & these things are merely coincidence, & to implicate Freemasonry is slanderous & wrong, but I doubt many Liverpool fans will concur. The Hillsborough disaster was the fault of the South Yorkshire police, nor was the Valley Parade fire an act of God according to new research; 'Author Martin Fletcher claims the devastating fire was not an accident & has revealed a sequence of other blazes at businesses owned by or associated with Stafford Heginbotham, the club's chairman at the time.'
As for the Heysel tragedy; 'The blame for Heysel was initially laid entirely on Liverpool fans, & 14 were later found guilty of manslaughter & jailed. However, an investigation did concede that some culpability lay with the authorities, & the crumbling state of the Heysel stadium.'
- BBC News 29 May 2015
If I remember aright, the blame was immediately placed firmly on the fans at the time, for all three.
Early in the 1980's, the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe was caught, he'd terrorised the north of England for 6yrs murdering many women in Yorkshire & Manchester (see my Blog on York/Jack The Ripper for the Masonic connections etc..), Sutcliffe was from Bradford. Whilst all this was going on, the supposedly worst paedophile in British history, BBC celebrity, Yorkshireman & Peter Sutcliffe confidante, Jimmy Savile
was on the loose, Sir Jimmy, who was on a couple of occasions brought in for questioning by Yorkshire Police regarding the Ripper murders would frequently visit the Ripper in prison after his capture,
as it 'appens.
Immediately after Hillsborough the British government urged all Football League stadiums to comply with government regulations (not Law) that they should be seated, it was precisely then Rupert Murdoch & Sky TV moved in & the money men took over football & immediately games began being scheduled along prime-viewing times. Nowadays, a decent footballer can cost a club somewhere in the region of £200 million (222 million euros), nice eh? After Heysel, English clubs were barred from European competition for 6yrs, apparently for a crime they did not commit….in Brussels. When commenting on the Liverpool/Juventus game, respected English footballer & coach Dick Howard poignantly stressed, 'You just wonder, you know, whether they come to watch soccer games? You know we've had many instances this last season, where really it's been a case of specialised, aggro groups that have gone to games specifically to cause problems.'
Yet the Englishman still loves his football, so does the Scotsman, & religiously at that, despite it being outrageously nobbled.
If the issue of racism in English football is being grossly exaggerated then the subject of bigotry in Scottish has been vastly understated on the whole, at least by the media. It is an issue, but one most up there are prepared to tolerate. Up until 2011, the Glasgow clubs Celtic (nominally Catholic) & Rangers (Protestant) dominated the Scottish League (a Masonic term) for decades. Rangers however were made insolvent in 2011 because of financial irregularities & were duly relegated to the lowest Scottish division (they've since clawed their way back to the top). Rangers FC themselves suffered a tragic crowd/crush in 1971 when 66 fans died after a Celtic derby game, the cause of incident remains disputed.
Both Ronaldo & Lionel Messi (the two finest feetists on the planet ever probably) have recently received huge fines for improper income tax dealings….Now if it were true, & not a couple of show-trials, or if it were anyone else, like Rangers, both these superstars
would have been sent down;
'Football star Lionel Messi's 21-month prison sentence for tax fraud has been changed to a fine by the Spanish courts. The Barcelona star must pay €252,000 ($288,000, £223,000), equating to €400 for each day of the sentence, the court said in a statement. Messi, along with his father Jorge, was found guilty of defrauding Spain of €4.1m between 2007 & 2009. His father's 15-month sentence was replaced with a €180,000 fine….Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has cut a deal with a court in Madrid over tax evasion charges, accepting an €18.8m (£16.6m) fine.' - BBC News
(7th July & 25 May 2017)
(Certain numerologies are ringing out at us with
these football stories......Messi-ah/Crist-iano?
Just a thought)
It's difficult to say whether Scottish football suffers from a bigotry or a sectarian problem, because I know many, many fans from both Rangers & Celtic & I can't think of anyone offhand who goes to mass on Sunday. With the incredible sums of money involved in football these days, I find it hard to believe Rangers demotion was anything other than a heavy-handed reminder to its fans to cool it with the anti-catholic/Irish or whatever slurs.
'We look to a time when intolerance will cease', warned Freemason Manly Hall in the 5th of his Astrotheology lectures, after rattling off a train of socialistic prophecies somewhere in the mid-1950's, all of which are now in the process of becoming fulfilled.
The latest mayhem in English cities is an inexplicable massive rise in knife-crime. In the last few months there's been a spate of fans running on the pitch & attacking or threatening to attack players, prompting the usual scare-mongering BBC commentators to sob,
'It'll only be a matter of time before someone gets stabbed.'
Perhaps it will, but as Dick Howard tried to stress during the Heysel disaster, it won't be a football fan doing it.
The ordinary English people must be among the most tolerant on the planet. When the hordes of migrants began entering Britain from the West Indies & Far East in the 1950's, yes there was dissent, abuse even & the isolated attack or two, however, the vast majority, if not altogether welcoming, WERE EXTREMELY tolerant, Raheem Sterling should be made aware of this fact, if he's not already. What he should do is watch videos of Merv Hughes sledging England cricket players to see what honest abuse actually looks like. I suffered a few painful blows at the hands of West Indian immigrants growing up in Manchester, from having my face spray-painted as a 7yr old by a grown man, to having £1000's worth of musical equipment robbed twice by the same gang in my late teens. Incidentally, when we (our band) found out who'd done it & where it would be, we told the police who promptly tipped off the gang before they raided the West Indian nightclub where our gear WAS, as a matter of….'Race Relations'.
We never got our gear back, & none of us turned into racists (whatever that means), nor would it have even entered our heads to become one, it was just another lesson learned as far as we were concerned, so I'm sorry, I don't buy this racism in English football yarn, there's too many other fishy goings-on simultaneously that neatly fit the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto for my liking, so it's just another Psy-Op in other words. Incidentally, when my eldest brother died 2yrs ago, it turned out he kept a diary as a teenager, in it, much to our surprise, he explains he belonged to an organised Manchester City football hooligan outfit in the late 70's, perhaps he was told to keep a diary? In any event, keeping a diary & belonging to a City goon-squad didn't square with his character to my mind, at all, & because of his involvement in this, he was sent over to relatives in Ireland for a couple of years, only to return a morose, pessimistic alcoholic for the rest of his days.
The English Football League is a Masonic creation. The House of Commons, Buckingham Palace & now the English Premiere League all have their own Masonic Lodge. Freemasonry is a religion, just like Judaism or Islam, a Lodge is where people go to worship, although in Freemasonry most of its members aren't aware of the religious aspect. Some might seriously question my implicating the Craft in the above disasters, however, if one understands the goals of this religion & its association with fire (Alchemy), it's history in the region of Yorkshire, the Ripper murders, York being the spiritual home of Freemasonry etc ('York Rite') & it's connection
to the football clubs involved, the picture becomes somewhat different when we begin to study the history of the Craft.
Here's my hypothesis, with the advent of mechanisation, these 'Clubs' (another Masonic term) were set up to entertain, distract the attention of an increasing numbers of idle (not their fault) adult males in the newly created cities populations, & it's the same today incidentally only a thousand times worse. Football is a highly addictive drug & the populace of the UK needs it's fix more than most as there's less & less culture to be found around as well as honest work. The same type of tragic incident of this magnitude doesn't hit the same football club within 4yrs. Less & less blame is being afforded to Liverpool fans for the Heysel disaster & so it should, no football supporter goes to a game, especially a European Cup Final…...to kill anyone! Nor does lightening strike twice (or 3x if you count the Ripper Murders, & I do) in the same place (South Yorkshire) within the same time span, mind you,
anything's possibly with the Brotherhood of Death;
'A police station at the heart of operations after the Hillsborough disaster is due to be knocked down….The Hammerton Road station was the base for the force’s F Division, led by the Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield. The station was also where Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe was taken when he was arrested in Sheffield in January 1981 after officers spotted stolen number plates on his car.
Once taken to Hammerton Road police station he managed to hide a knife in a toilet cistern before he was transferred to West Yorkshire.'
Margaret Thatcher came to power in 1979 & suddenly unemployment skyrocketed, as did football hooliganism.
'They were two of the bitterest landmarks of the 1980s, but the connections between them have not previously been fully appreciated – the Hillsborough disaster, 23 years ago this Sunday, in which 96 Liverpool supporters died, & the "Battle for Orgreave" [South Yorkshire] five years earlier, the most violent episode of the coal miners' strike…..After both Orgreave & Hillsborough, South Yorkshire police – under its chief constable, Peter Wright, who died last year – was accused of the concerted fabrication of evidence against the miners & Liverpool supporters respectively.....
After Orgreave, South Yorkshire police claimed they had been attacked by striking miners, & prosecuted 95 people for riot & unlawful assembly, offences that carried potential life sentences. All were acquitted, after defence lawyers argued that police evidence was false, fabricated & that an officer's signature on a statement was forged.'.
The bitter Miners Strike occurred in the auspicious year of 1984(-85) & was seen by many as a betrayal of Britains workers by their government. The war against the Church, the State & the Mob began long ago in Britain, & here's how the then British Prime Minister Margeret Thatcher reacted to the above-mentioned 'Battle of Orgreave' during Question Time in the
House of Commons;
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the vast majority of the British people, never mind their political persuasions, are deeply shocked at the ugly scenes of violence on the picket line at Orgreave? Does she agree that that behaviour is representative, not of the true tradition of British trade union lawful picketing, but of the rule of the mob? Will my right hon. Friend [Communist identification mark] take the opportunity to praise the British police for their courage & dedication & for their discipline in combating a difficult situation?
The Prime Minister
I agree with my hon. Friend that the scenes at Orgreave yesterday had nothing to do with peaceful picketing, either under the law or under the rules laid down several years ago by the TUC. However serious the strike—& it is serious—the consequences of giving in to mob rule would be far graver. Thanks to the courage of the police, yesterday's attempt failed...'
Sir Jimmy Savile would on occasion spend Christmas with the Thatchers whilst Margeret was in office.
Orgreave, on the outskirts of Sheffield was for many the abiding image of the Miners Strike, which in itself symbolically marked the end of an era for Britains industry & thus Britain as a nation. Little did the striking miners know that their own Trade Union representatives, who organised the picketing, co-ordination etc were & are, being Marxist Socialists, dedicated to the destruction of the nation state, & if they are Masons, which is more than likely, the destruction of the family unit, religions (save theirs; Paganism) & the enslavement of what will be left of the…..Mob.
The fire at Valley Parade occurred
11 months later.
Football fans have always expressed a fond empathy for nationalism in Britain & events like Heysel only worsened it's already tarnished reputation amongst the nations so to speak.
Nothing happens by accident in Politics said Woodrow Wilson, & the above events are evidence of the Establishments war on us, who they refer to as the 'Mob' or the 'Masses', or the 'Rabble', the 'Profane', the 'Great Unwashed' or in Marxist terms, the 'Proletariat'. The fact that the Yorkshire Ripper was 'captured' in the same building the South Yorkshire police were using as their headquarters on the day of the Hillsborough tragedy only furthers my belief these events were contrived. It's like here in Jersey, the now famous building for child abuse; Haute De La Garenne, was used in the 1980's as the police headquarters in the TV crime series 'Bergerac'……
we're expected to buy this crap.
The feeling of disbelief is succinctly summarised in the Wikipedia page of the judge who presided over the Bradford City Stadium Fire,
Sir Oliver Bury Popplewell;
'On 19 October 2011 he [Popplewell] sparked fury by calling on the Liverpool families involved in the Hillsborough disaster to behave more like the relatives of victims of the Bradford City stadium disaster. He made the comments in a letter to The Times following the Commons debate on 17 October 2011 calling for all Cabinet papers on Hillsborough to be released. He said: "The citizens of Bradford behaved with quiet dignity & great courage. They did not harbour conspiracy theories. They did not seek endless further inquiries".
His letter was published by the Times sister paper, The Sun, which is boycotted on Merseyside, the day after it was revealed to Parliament that senior policemen had changed the evidence of junior policemen whose evidence contradicted the official version given to the press by police spokesmen. Popplewell was widely criticised for his comments, including a rebuke from a survivor of the Bradford stadium disaster.
In April 2015 Popplewell expressed the view that it was "bizarre" to suggest that the Bradford City stadium fire was anything other than accidental. This was in response to the publication of an article in The Guardian newspaper of an extract from a new book "Fifty-Six: The Story of the Bradford Fire" by Martin Fletcher, revealing new information about 8 previous fires allegedly connected to the Bradford City owner & chairman, Stafford Heginbotham
(who died in 1995),
Popplewell later qualified his remark & suggested that the police should look into the “remarkable number” of fires allegedly connected to Bradford City’s then chairman “to see if there was anything sinister”.
'When the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; & when the state governs, he is ruled by fear. Before men can live together in harmony & understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom, superstition into an illuminated faith, & fear into love.'
- Manly Hall
Would you credit it? During the Miners Strike on July 9th 1984, York Minster went on fire….
Eee, ow's yer luck?
Ah, but lets get back to the Beautiful Game as it's known. As a homesick Mancunian, I admit I still watch the odd game of my old team as a way of keeping connected with the folks back home, though I wouldn't consider myself a fan any more, & I've got to admit also, I'm a wee bit proud that northern clubs are continually the more succesful football teams than their southern rivals.
In any event, as a precursor perhaps, of what the Germans did during WWI, from the entry for Football in the
Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961) we read;
'A Scottish writer reports that the Anglo-Scottish War which began in 1297 was not taken with a proper seriousness by either party; King Edward I's foot consisted of 2,500 levies from Cheshire & Lancashire, of whom the Lancastrians were old opponents of the Scots raiders & had to be restrained by orders from their commanders from playing football with instead of fighting
their hereditary enemies.'
