The Sausage Sandwich Game

I like Barrow. I’m not sure why – it’s one of those irrational soft spots you develop for teams which have no particular rationale behind them. They just exist.

First and foremost, signing Bishop is a vindication of Morrell’s approach to the transfer window. His decision not to be rushed into moves, preferring to sign a player because he’ll improve the squad rather than rush into it simply because people are getting twitchy, was … Continue reading Bishop’s Move Vindicates Morrell

What’s in a Name?

Sometimes, when commentating, certain awkward situations crop up. There was one in the centre of Ebbsfleet’s midfield last night. Some names roll off the commentator’s tongue; there’s music in them.
