Billericay Town: The Only Way Isn’t Necessarily Essex

Glenn Tamplin was background noise to my summer, merely the latest wealthy narcissist ejaculating wealth and narcissism over a non-league football club before the narcissism proves insufficient once the wealth runs out. Tamplin, the owner of Isthmian League Billericay Town, initially seemed little different to over-ambitious owners like Canvey Island’s Jeff King, Grays Athletic’s Micky Woodward and Hornchurch’s Karl Williams… even when he made himself Billericay’s manager (King did likewise at Canvey.

Football League Review: Sunderland & Villa’s Purgatory

Five games into the Football League Championship season, there are surprising faces at the top of the table. Cardiff City sit at the top of the pile with five wins out of five following a narrow but deserved win against Queens Park Rangers at The Cardiff City Stadium, with Ipswich Town sitting in second place in the table despite seeing their strong start to the season stutter following a home defeat at the hands of Fulham. The top of the table, however, isn’t really where the genuine interest rests in this division. The real interest comes at its other...
