THRU BLACK & WHITE EYES – Enough Already – 15/Apr/15


It’s not often that Newcastle United can surprise me these days and after a wholly predictable and routine defeat to Liverpool complete with inept defending and barely a threat in attack with the brain-dead sending off the team’s “leader” Sissoko, I had a kind of comforting warmth that the club had no shocks left.

true faith : POSTCARD FROM BRAZIL – Support #BoycottSpurs


“I love football, me, John.  You know?  I mean, I properly love it.”  I’ll never forget those words till the day I die.  They were said to me calmly, earnestly and truthfully – I will never doubt their honesty.  They weren’t uttered under the floodlights of St. James’ Park or on the coach to an away match.  They were said quietly, over a pint, whilst standing on the sidelines at Filtrona Park as the speaker of the words watched wistfully as South Shields FC and North Shields FC played out an FA Vase derby on an international friendly weekend.  It … Continue reading
