It’s that awkward summer slot where we cover an eclectic range of topics that we didn’t have time to mention during the football season, although we have been spoiled with an excellent summer of sport, the England football team excluded obviously. We invite Liverpool fan Joe Curran to talk about the Klopp revolution and what […]
As Euro 2016 begins, my mind is taken back to the summer of 2000. This summer was to be my first, and only, experience of a major football tournament as I, along with a mate, decided to apply for tickets in the ballot for Euro 2000 in Holland and Belgium and see where it got […]
Wednesday May 4 1949. A date unfamiliar to many football fans outside of Italy. A day that changed the course of Italian football forever and had a monumental effect on one team in particular.
Castel di Sangro is a tiny town situated in the Abruzzo region of Italy, and has a population of around 6,000 people.

There’s been a storm brewing for some time over WN5 and it’s not the sort which regularly floods that roundabout by Asda. It is a tale of somebody trying to do the right thing and solve a difficult problem, only for them to receive hate filled bile and contempt back in their direction from ungracious […]
So sang Gabrielle in the 1990’s, and they could come true for Leicester City this season in the ‘EPL’ as they sit pretty at the top of the table. It would be the biggest shock since Blackburn 20 years ago but you have to go back even further to witness this feat in Italy.

Of course we would ALL like to watch a Ajaxbarcabrazillianesque style of football week in week out but in truth it is the end result that matters the most. Forums, Twitter and phone-ins are awash with angry folk when their team suffers a defeat not with what the style of the 1-0 victory was like. […]
