At the home of the beautiful game

One of the perks of a project I've been doing recently, is a chance to chew the fat about this brave new world with some old mates

And to go to some really interesting places (thanks, Surinder for the pic).

When you look into an empty stadium (such as the home of the BG), it's clear that the players are only the overture for the fans – the real stars of the football experience

Which just gives me a chance to revisit this bit of tribalismjust listen to and watch the crowd

    Next Saturday should be good…hopefully not a replay of the fixture last year! 😉

    Methinks you are falling for some sort of loyalty bias – the stands might be empty because of the quality of the team has caused the people to herd in another direction.

    Beautiful game? Hoof it long to Crouch and hope he gets a touch? Thats what you did at the Reebok. Taking lessons from the Allardyce school?
