Livin’ The Vida Copa

In case you hadn’t noticed (and if you’re in Britain you can almost certainly be forgiven this), the Copa America got under way in Venezuela last week. I’m not sure why the British press ignore this – after all, there’s precious little happening in the football universe at the moment, and the quality of football…

Footballers Dressed As Ducks

Now then. NOW THEN. I promised you ducks dressed as footballers, and here’s the first two. Can you work out which one was done by me, and which was done by proper artist/cartoonist Little Dotmund? The first correct answer wins an oven ready goose, dressed in a Racing Santander away shirt.

Hugh Johns

I stand to be corrected on this, but unconfirmed reports are stating that the former ITV football commentator Hugh Johns has died at the age of 83.

City Of Dreams

I occasionally feel as if the football world is living in the last days of Rome. The lead piping that drove the Empire mad is being recreated by the strange band of investors that have decided that Premier League football is the place to be, and the poisoned water is money, which will slowly but…

A Bridge Over Troubled Water

As I briefly mentioned last night, in the summer, the “silly season” kicks in. As parliament breaks up for the summer, news desks run out of stories to print, and the assorted hacks start looking elsewhere for items to fill up the column inches, and stories that would never otherwise be allowed near our hallowed…
