For Fax Sake 2

For Fax Sake

It’s been a pretty bad last few months for football in Yorkshire, to varying degrees. In May, Sheffield United were relegated from the Premier League and, since then, Leeds United have sailed close to...

A Right To Free Speech

For as long as football has been played, the running of clubs has been a political issue. Right the way back to the nineteenth century and the division of the game into amateurs and...

Radio Free Europe

I know that I’ve been neglecting you all over the last few days, so here’s a bit more Baker & Kelly, from the start of the 1998 World Cup. Plenty more of these to...

AFC Sudbury 6-0 Wivenhoe Town

What more pleasant a way to finish a weekend in the country could there be than to spend a warm, sunny afternoon, at King’s Marsh, watching the Ryman League Division One North match between...

Gone But Not Forgotten (Part 5) 5

Gone But Not Forgotten (Part 5)

England played a friendly last night, apparently. To be honest, I had better things to do, like reading up on the history of New Brighton FC, who graced the Football League for thirty years...

A Recurring Dream

Indulge me a moment here, and take a moment to consider your job. Try to imagine that you go into work this morning, and you find that your manager has been sacked. One or...

A 1998 World Cup Preview

You may or may not be aware that, when I am on a late shift at work, everything goes a bit haywire on here. I don’t normally get home until about 9.30, and then...

Your Sunday Evening Listening Choice

In the parallel universe that those of you listening to these MP3s are living in, it’s the very end of the 1997-98 football season, and Danny Baker & Danny Kelly have got a special...

Robbing The Rich 1

Robbing The Rich

I wouldn’t much want to be Rob Styles for the next forty-eight hours or so. It’s a bit early to confirm what on earth was going through his head during this afternoon’s match between...

Shoreham 0-1 Horley Town 0

Shoreham 0-1 Horley Town

I guess that I started to think that this was a bad idea on the train from Brighton to Shoreham-by-Sea. There didn’t appear to be too many people travelling west, but, at every station...

A Few Photos

I don’t really have much time to post much up on here this evening so, in lieu of words, I thought I’d nudge you in the general direction of my football photos on Flickr....

WATCH THE FOOTBALL.

There is something fundamentally beautiful going on here, courtesy of Mitchell & Webb. Keep it in the back of your mind and you’ll never be able to take Sky Sports seriously again. WATCH THE...

The Road To Wembley Starts Here 2

The Road To Wembley Starts Here

It’s probably fair to say that Shoreham-by-Sea will never be described anywhere as a “football hotbed”. Six miles west of Brighton (although in a different county – the boundary that divides East & West...
