Ebbsfleet On The Brink?

The ongoing saga of Ebbsfleet United and My Football Club has long been a favourite chosen subject of this site. Their first round of renewals came around earlier this year, and the results were not encouraging for them. In spite of very vocal protestations to the contrary (not least in the comments section on here),…

The Promotion Jitters

Burton Albion lost 2-1 at Ebbsfleet United in the Blue Square Premier on Wednesday night.

Who’s Football Club?

Most of you will probably remember the little bit of investigation that I undertook on the subject of the My Football Club take-over of Ebbsfleet United towards the end of last year. Well, I thought that it was time for a quick update on how things were progressing for this peculiar little exercise in “fan”…
