Monday, 2nd March 2015
by Raedwulf
''The one thing I've found surprising about all the recent column inches and online discussions is that nowhere have I seen any version of one of the common dismissals. "They're not true fans"; "they're not real fans"; "they're not proper fans"...''

Thursday, 26th February 2015
by Raedwulf
''"Man offended on behalf of someone else reports incident he didn't see or hear", wrote Staff. It sets up the expectation that the article is going to be wholly dismissive of the current kerfuffle about some idiotic chanting at White Hart Lane last Sunday. ..''

Where are they now?
Tuesday, 28th October 2014
by Raedwulf

Reffing Hell...
Monday, 7th April 2014
by Raedwulf
''I hope Hammerhead doesn't mind me quoting his lengthy and well argued post on Staff's Liverpool match report as the basis of this opinion piece. I've had in the back of my mind for some time the notion of writing something about refereeing...''

A little more Mauricio!
Thursday, 27th February 2014
by Raedwulf
''I must admit, when I indulged in a little "blue sky thinking" I didn't expect to produce a lightning bolt that would blow up a powder keg! Perhaps I should have finished with a couple of questions to make the intent of my previous article just that little bit clearer...''

Just one transferro, give eet to me...
Monday, 24th February 2014
by Raedwulf
''Mauricio Pochettino has to be the man for the job. If I can have just one transfer in the coming close season, whatever it costs, bring in Pochettino. What you do with Allardyce, I'm indifferent to. Kick him upstairs to a Director of Football position if it's cheaper, or just sack him; I'm really not interested...''
