The Kop Final

As some of you may well be aware, I’m somewhat averse to any person or organisation that attempts to describe themselves as “The Heart & Soul Of Football”. One of the small pleasures of this season was watching Arsenal fans looking more and more crestfallen as their own brand of football looked toothless against mediocre…

Birthday Birthday Birthday!

In all the excitement of the play-offs and the anniversary of Heysel, I forgot to mention that this little blog passed its first birthday on Monday. Time, I think, to thank you lot for bothering to read it. It has been, I have to say, quite a year. Your votes helped to send me, of…

I’m Really, Really Sorry…

They sat in the…

Breakfast Of Champions

This time, it’s definitely the final weekend of the season. I promise. I know what you’re thinking here – “How can we trust him on this? He said it on the last day of the Football League season, he said it on the last day of the Premiership season, he said it before the FA…

Derby Day

You know what? I think I deserve a night off from insightful football writing. In fact, I thought that just over a year ago, and have been keeping it up admirably ever since. Ho ho. Actually, after last night’s European Cup final gubbins, I could just do with an evening in front of the television…
