By SEAN RUBIO

With Champions League semi-finals getting most of the attention today, there is not a whole lot to pass along to you.  That being said, there are two great reads about lower-level English clubs, as well as some of South Africa's neighbors helping to pitch in for 2010:

Southern African Power Pool offers support for 2010 World Cup [AllAfrica]

Tears of joy for AFC Wimbledon [Guardian]

Red Star Belgrade board quits as clubs nears collapse [ESPNSoccernet]

A look at Burnley's coach Owen Coyle, and their dream season [BBC]

Alfio Basile offered to replace Mark Hughes as Man City coach [MadAboutFutbol]

Think Basile would be a good fit at Man City?  Sad to see a former European champion seemingly destined for complete collapse?  Happy to see AFC Wimbledon promoted for the fourth straight season?

    I have always followed AFC Wimbledon’s story and they plight of their fans who had their club stolen from them…one of the best kept secrets in football that could have a tremendous movie about it if they in fact make it all the way to the league in a few years.

    Love the recommended reading. I appreciate it.
    Wimbledon story has movie all over it, but studio heads in the US will change it to baseball, and it will star Jimmy Fallon.

    That Wimbledon article was good. But this (from the Guardian) really had me in tears.
