Mark Perryman's *Philosophy Football* (Penguin 1997) has Shakespeare
lining up as midfield playmaker (hem hem) alongside Sun 'The Art of War'
Tzu  - a fearsome combination of creativity and strategy - which is just
as well, as I'm less impressed by the forward line - Umberto Eco and
Gramsci through the middle, and Oscar Wilde and Bob Marley (!) playing
wide.

No, but this might be:  "It ain't over till its over,"   L.P. (Yogi)
Berra

Yes. The Yogi Berra statement is profound.  Like Irish bulls his
pronouncements are pregnant with hidden meaning

Besides, a soccer game is not necessarily over when the final whistle
blows

Can not the Disciplinary Committee suspend a player later on for several
games?  etc., etc

The quote about football being more serious than life or death is by
Bill Shankly, late and lamented manager of Liverpool FC I think you'll
find.

John Ramsay recalls this anecdote:

Naive reporter, after a Manchester United game: "Why does soccer have to
be such a life and death matter?" Manager of United: "But you don't
understand. It's much more serious than that."

That was Bill Shankley (1913-1981 manager of Liverpool FC), surely? As
quoted in The Sunday Times obits October 4th 1981 (and elsewhere).
