Visiting Vincent: RSC Anderlecht v Charleroi 8 December 2019

“Where do you want your statue Vincent Kompany?!” spluttered Gary Neville from the television gantry. The talismanic Belgian defender had just put Manchester City ahead against Brendan Rodger’s Leicester side with a quite stunning strike. That iconic moment, on the penultimate match day of the 2018/2019 season, would prove decisive in an utterly captivating two-horse … Continue reading Visiting Vincent: RSC Anderlecht v Charleroi 8 December 2019

Supporters’ Trusts and Rogue Owners: a Case Study

Had it not been for a chance encounter last month in the south side of Glasgow with Killie Trust Chairman, Jim Thomson, I highly doubt that I would have found myself writing this feature now. Nevertheless, the world works in strange ways and proverbial doors often open when we least expect them to. An inspired … Continue reading Supporters’ Trusts and Rogue Owners: a Case Study

LA Galaxy v New England Revolution, 2 June 2019

I have never seen anything like this. I’m at Dignity Health Sports Park in Los Angeles, home of MLS side/ franchise LA Galaxy. There’s a gleaming Toyota pick-up truck proudly mounted in one corner of the stadium, putting the red double decker at Hamilton’s New Douglas Park to shame. There’s a pair of artificial, larger-than-life … Continue reading LA Galaxy v New England Revolution, 2 June 2019

Cliftonville v Coleraine 7 May 2019, 19:45

Earlier this month I made the short trip across the water for a few days in Belfast. Somewhat conveniently, Belfast-based Cliftonville were playing a play-off semi-final at their unassuming home ground, Solitude, against Coleraine on the evening of the day we arrived. Realising both the importance of this game and the modest ticket prices, we … Continue reading Cliftonville v Coleraine 7 May 2019, 19:45

Kilmarnock v Rangers 19 May 2019, 15:00

I remember sitting in the Frank Beattie Stand at Rugby Park as Kilmarnock succumbed to a woeful 4-0 defeat against Ross County back in August 2015, leaving Ayrshire's most successful side sitting bottom of the table five games in and destined for yet another season fighting relegation. The players looked disinterested, the fans had almost … Continue reading Kilmarnock v Rangers 19 May 2019, 15:00

1. FC Kaiserslautern v 1860 München, 28 July 2018

For most people, the thought of embarking on an eight hour round trip across a border with multiple train connections and the inevitable malfunctioning air conditioning system on a stifling summer's day to watch third tier German football is far from enticing. However, in late July last year I decided to do just that to … Continue reading 1. FC Kaiserslautern v 1860 München, 28 July 2018
