Us vs The Other Lot. Billy The Dog takes a good look

By Billy

Neither of our regular pre-match correspondents has delivered the news of the day, and Tony is going dancing tonight in some far-off town (he’s just an old jiver at heart and apparently they have clubs around where you can throw women across the room and not get arrested or something), so I am […]

An Arsenal perspective on Hillsborough

Sitting in my house in Nova Scotia I have been consumed reading about the results of the enquiry into Hillsborough and the Liverpool FC tragedy.

Pest control: Fifa and its internationals

By Tony Attwood

Internationals are a pest because…
