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 had a major reshuffle at the end of November 2013, with the intention of broadening our coverage of the game.
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 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 during the 2006 World Cup finals. We rather doubt that they would feel the same way about us nowadays.
This site is now written by seven people:
Ian King began writing Twohundredpercent in May 2006. He lives in Brighton. 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.
Gary Andrews has been writing, broadcasting and podcasting about football-related odds and sods (and occasionally proper stuff) since 2005. His usual areas of interest and lower and non-league in the UK, general football culture, broadcasting and technology’s relation to football. May occasionally write about Australian football if feeling so inclined. Supports Exeter City and Sydney FC. Unused to success.
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.
Terry Duffelen used to be the editor of the erstwhile football satire website, The Onion Bag. He got into the Bundesliga after going on a stag weekend in Cologne in 2004 and now watches more German football than English. Find him on the Sound Of Football podcast on Mondays and the Talking Fussball Extra podcast most Fridays. Despite being a season ticket holder at Whyteleafe FC, Terry still considers himself to be a Crystal Palace supporter.
Pete Brooksbank supports Boston United and was the writer and editor of impsTALK, the curiously-named Pilgrims fanzine that charted the lows and further lows experienced by the club during its disastrous and unintentionally hilarious five year stint as a Football League club. He continues writing under the impsTALK banner for the Boston Standard. He’s also written for When Saturday Comes and BBC Radio 4, although his ultimate ambition of getting a letter published by the Guardian’s Fiver remains tragically unfulfilled.
Neil Park is a Chelsea fan, a Milan fan, and a big fan of Italian football in general. A penance for this, he follows the fortunes of Bedworth United, although not as assiduously as he would have liked to of late. He is also becoming disconcertingly fascinated with red wine, and he also has a pseudo-masochistic lifelong ambition to meet Alessandro del Piero, purely so I can say that he has.
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.
