“Brainless, Betraying, Cretinous”, screamed The Sun this morning, and so it was that their much-anticipated slating of the BBC after last night’s Panorama began. It took a twin-headed approach – firstly, an apparent “voice of the fans” piece of garbage which was either written by or ghost-written for Ian Wright. It is an article so…

The Second Round of the FA Cup should be a time for the supporters of an Evostik League Premier Division club to be celebrating, but, as we have discussed on this site before, FC United of Manchester are not like other clubs and this week has, if nothing else, been a harsh education in the…
