Yet another Fifa scandal breaks, but again the British media won’t report it.

By Tony Attwood

Now either you can think that this is another story that is being hidden from British football fans and others interested in corruption by the British media, or you may think that the British media take the view that British supporters are just not interested in fraud issues relating to Fifa.

Are you a victim of PPP? Don’t suffer in silence, take action!

By Blacksheep

I watched the FA Cup tie against Brighton & Falmer Albion in rather dreary modern pub close to where Tony and I usually meet to travel down to the Emirates. They had the game on their (biggish) screen and it was convenient for hooking up with the twins. There was no sound so […]

By Tony Attwood
