Thank you to regular drinker Pangloss for contributing a thought-provoking (and decidedly radical) piece as a response to a healthy discussion in the last drinks. The relationship between supporters of club and country has changed a great deal in the last thirty years. Pangloss presents an option that I am sure will provoke a healthy […]

Unable to catch the action due to an obscenely early start to my golfing Friday, I am so grateful for one of ours, Dr Faustus for sharing a unique look at Arsenal’s win against the MLS All-Stars. I owe you, my friend. Thank you. The year is 2070. There is a football match being held […]

Another Ned classic, for which I am enormously grateful. The one reason why I wish I was around, and a Gooner, three years prior to the arrival of ‘holicdad. My Pop must have been spitting feathers. Thanks Ned, you are a star. Regular sufferers of these histories may remember that I said at the tail […]

A big apology is due for the somewhat haphazard nature of the blog in recent days. I had no idea Cornwall was such a mobile broadband black spot. Anyway, something seems to have improved the wifi situation in the hotel. Can atmospherics really be the reason? At least that means I can now share a […]

Once again my thanks to one of ours, North Bank Ned, for a guest piece on something of an overlooked anniversary. A hundred years ago our last season outside the top flight had drawn to a close, and the first enforced interruption of the Football League by a world conflict had begun. Ned looks at […]
