Scotland The Brave

Ever since their stunning win at the 1998 World Cup and subsequent permanent placement at (or near) the head of the European football table, I have found something disquieting about the pre-eminence of the French national team. I should point out at this juncture that I am a Francophile of some note. I love the…

That’s all, folks

That’s it from me, normal service will soon be resumed. I’m going to get back to what I normally do, and let this place get back to what it normally does – top-notch football analysis. However, until that point, I thought I’d finish with a ridiculous picture. Heh.

Winning ugly

Southwick 4-0 Broadbridge Heath Two clubs from the Sussex County League Second Division go to battle in the Sussex County Football Association Royal Ulster Rifles Charity Cup 2nd round. Not a glamour time, perhaps, but a match which piqued my interest. Firstly, I have traveled along the Coastway West railway line in and out of…

Oh to be in England…

… when the football season’s here! Here’s more Baker and Kelly for you, from the opening day of the 1998 Premiership season. I’m listening to the first one now, and I’m curious to know its whether I’m just so staggeringly out-of-touch or whether nothing ever changes in the sport that makes it still sound so…

The idiot box

This past week, I’ve watched quite a bit of televised live football by my standards. Both of England’s Euro 2008 qualifiers (Frank who?), plus England Women’s opening game in the World Cup against Japan. In all honesty, the latter proved the more refreshing experience, as the Chinese director chose to focus the majority of their…
