Middlesbrough v Burnley Riverside Stadium / FA Cup 3rd Round / 9th January 2015 Sexy. That’s how I used to think of Middlesbrough in my youth…well, the football team at least.

Leicester City v Swansea City  The King Power Stadium / Premier League / 18th April 2015 When I think of Leicester, happy thoughts don’t exactly flood my thoughts. My only visit to the city came back on the first day of the 2009/10 Championship season. Like the start of all football seasons, optimism was in … Continue reading

Burnley v Swansea City Turf Moor / Premier League / 28th February 2015 “You are fucking brave coming in here…” Welcome to Burnley. This was my greeting to the Lancashire town back in 2011.

Lost in…Manchester (Manchester City) (Again)

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Etihad Stadium / Champions League / 2nd October 2013 Rarely do I write a second blog about a ground.
