About

Twohundredpercent started its life in May 2006. It is a website about the politics, culture, financials and history of football. It thinks that tactics are very delicious mints. We have a podcast that comes out once a week and is available through Itunes, Soundcloud, or to download and listen to at your leisure.

This site was a gold winner in the When Saturday Comes Webwatch awards in 2009 and 2010, and a silver winner of the same in 2011. In 2011 and 2013 it was nominated for and in 2012 won the Football Supporters Federation Writers Awards Website Of The Year, and also won the Editors Choice at the 2008 Soccerlens awards. In 2006, oddly enough, Twohundredpercent was for one week only The Sun’s Website Of The Week. We rather doubt that they would feel the same way about us nowadays.

This site is now written by three people:

Ian King began writing Twohundredpercent in May 2006. He has also written for, amongst others, Pitch Invasion, FC Business Magazine, The Score, When Saturday Comes, Stand Against Modern Football and The Football Supporter. Ian was the first winner of the Socrates Award For Not Being Dead Yet at the 2010 NOPA awards for football bloggers. He lives in West Sussex.

Mark Murphy supports Kingstonian and is a former chair of the club’s supporters trust, the Ks Trust, although he also holds a candle for both Tottenham Hotspur and Celtic.

Ed Carter is a professional cartoonist, whose career started when he was voted Britain’s Young Cartoonist Of The Year at the age of seventeen. He lives in Lancing, West Sussex, and supports Brighton & Hove Albion, for all of our sins. He draws for money, and is available for commission work.
