Desperate Times Call For Radical Solutions

One of the things that has surprised me the most about the tone of this week’s coverage of England’s travails in the media has been the level of surprise at the state of the game. Has everyone really been blinded by the lights to such an extent that they couldn’t see what was going on?…

My Football Club Re-Visited

It’s funny how writing this blog ebbs and flows (no pun intended). A couple of weeks ago, I was really struggling to find things to put up on here and now I haven’t got enough time to write as much as I’d like. Over the weekend I downloaded 800mb of terrible football songs from all…
