The Monday Morning Timewaster Project
So, it’s Monday morning and the thought of sitting at your desk and staring out of the window for another five days is getting on top of you, right? Well, we have something that might just kill the best part of this morning, at least. We’ve got six of the best links – something to read, some pictures to peruse and even a video – for you this morning, to help you idle away your morning. Just don’t let your boss catch you, or there’ll be hell to pay. If you have any suggestions for this feature, feel free to drop us a line using the Contact page, which is linked at the top of this page.
– There is, of course, no peccadillo in football that is too slight to have a website devoted to it, and those amongst us who love this periphery will squeal with delight at Floodlight Fancy, which is no more than pictures of floodlights.
– If you’re looking for a football match to visit in London but don’t know where to start, things can start to get quite difficult. Fortunately, you can always look up The London Football Guide and find out exactly who is playing and where. Regularly updated and with its own Twitter account, this is an essential site for anybody in London at a loose end on a Saturday afternoon.
– Staying in London for a moment, our good friend and photographer David Bauckham was at the Essex Senior League match between Sporting Bengal United and London APSA. His photographs are always a delight.
– Now for some video. This YouTube should be an essential for any football historians, and this series, documenting all the goals known of to have been scored in front of UK television cameras certainly looks fascinating. It’s unlikely to be exhaustive, but there will be plenty of forgotten gems to be seen in here.
– Meanwhile, erstwhile Twohundredpercent contributer Dave Boyle went to the United States of America, and came back with this report for The Guardian on the tribulations currently facing supporters of clubs in MLS.
– And finally, Adventures In Tinpot’s Kenny Legg visited the recent match between Hereford United and Swindon Town. As ever, his report contains little detail of the match itself. And rightly so.
