On the 26th June, the sixth Women’s World Cup kicks off in Germany. It is twenty years since the tournament started, during which time the women’s game has come on significantly, particularly in terms of its public profile. However, women’s football – particularly women’s professional football – is still very much in its infancy....

It’s a question we at Twohundredpercent barely ever ask because it’s demonstrably so stupid, but – can football save the world? Although it’s not the sort of question we’d ask, it is now sadly the sort of question we have nevertheless answered, as Dotmund presents this sub-Boy’s Own adventure starring one of the world’s most...

It’s been an unusual season, but one which nevertheless has had a familiar outcome. Manchester United continue to sweep all before them in the English game, and no referee or journalist seems able to stop them. Ahead of their European Cup Final on Saturday – their third, lest we forget, in the last four years – Dotmund has been profiling some of...

Tomorrow, as you probably know, is the FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Stoke City. Editorial discretion prevents Dotmund from saying who he will be supporting. However, historical facts are indiscreet things indeed and as your correspondent has discovered, the shirt on your back may prove to be the very thing keeping you from your ambitions. Click for...

It’s the long-awaited Mungo season finale… but will it be the last Mungo ever? Almost certainly not, is the answer. However, things look to be changing for both our hero and Heart of Clachmaninshire, although not necessarily in the same direction. Dotmund has complained endlessly about doing this all season, as ever. This time, though, he’s...

It’s the end of the season which means today’s Mungo is the penultimate edition for a while at least, so be sure to drink it in. With Mungo incarcerated in the Tower of London for calling the future King of England a very bad thing in jest, Heart of Clachmaninshire’s hopes of avoiding relegation have received a major fillip. But Mungo McCrackas...

Mungo time. With Heart of Clachmaninshire in their most precarious league position yet, the best thing that could possibly happen – Mungo being unavailable to play – is happily precipitated by events elsewhere. But will he make it out of the Tower in time for the run-in? Dotmund draws Mungo with his feet. Click for full-size There’s more of...

If the reason we all love sport is (as is often suggested) because of its unpredictability, then a lot of people must be in the same position as Dotmund and celebrating a new favourite footballer: Mario Balotelli. Will he be brilliant? Will he score a hattrick? Will he get sent off? Will he start a fight? Will he be able to get his bib on? Our plucky artist...
