Hereford United – Fan Initiatives Gain Momentum

Another week with many developments at Hereford United (1939) but the only result has been increasing polarisation between the club and the fans. Here’s John Perkins with another update from this summer’s crisis club du jour. Changes at the Club The club increasingly operates in isolation but there were a few developments that showed they were still continuing with their plan (whatever that is). First of all, Tommy Agombar pulled a Stephen Vaughan type sleight of hand on club ownership.

The 200% World Cup: Brazil 2014 By Numbers

Our resident obsessive-compulsive Dotmund has been busy drawing other things biting other things, and so has let World Cup artwork slide. Which is a relief to everyone. However, his real love in life is lists and attempting to ascribe numerical order to chaos. This is because he’s an idiot, or has too much time on his hands, or both. Here is his guide to this summer’s shenanigans from a numerological perspective.  0 There have been no teams who failed to score at the 2014 World Cup.

It was a defeat that many had seen coming. Lacklustre in the group stages and a little fortunate in each of their two previous knockout matches, this had not been the Brazil team that the country had promised itself for this tournament. The nature of Brazil’s capitulation at the hands of Germany last night, however, was a jolt to the system for everybody who witnessed it. Unbeaten at home in competitive football since 1975, Brazil were humbled in front of their own crowd by a team that handed down a salutary lesson in how to play the game. This...

The 200% World Cup – Brazil vs Germany, LIVE!

Good evening, sports fans! Anyone else get the feeling that World Cup semi-finals have a tendency to be somewhat understated? After all, this evening in Belo Horizonte we have two of the historical superpowers of international football locking horns for a place in the World Cup final, and the world seems less than over-excited at the prospect of it all. Perhaps we’re all footballed out after the sheer glut of matches that have been sent our way over the last three weeks or so. Unlike some other knockout competitions, it feels as if the semi-finals are relatively underplayed. Perhaps...
