So it was that 1992 began with Manchester United comfortably ahead of Leeds United at the top of the last First Division table before the introduction of the Premier League. This weekend’s continuation of our story of this season starts with the traditional New Year’s Day’s fixtures, but the FA Cup also breaks up this...
The Scottish Professional Football League’s CEO, Neil Doncaster, is either stupid, or thinks everyone is. This is the logical conclusion to draw from the SPFL’s breath-taking decisions on the Scottish Championship’s fixtures for Saturday May 2nd. At first glance, Sky TV televising Hearts v Rangers and moving the game from Saturday to Sunday is nothing...

It’s difficult to know where to begin with all of this, of course. At first, the headlines can only make one’s stomach turn. The Valley Parade of May 1985, which claimed the lives of fifty-six football supporters from two football clubs, already occupies a particularly dark place in the history of professional football in England...
The concept of being mathematically relegated means that they’re not quite down yet, of course, but last night at The New Den Wigan Athletic took their biggest step yet towards the precipice. A two goal defeat against the similarly embattled Millwall yesterday evening means that the bell is tolling for the Latics’ time in the...
