We here at CultFootball HQ are still quite new to the footy blogosphere. We were poking around Twitter a couple weeks ago, looking for soccer-related feeds to follow, and came across Off The Post (on Twitter here, and also on Facebook here), and we’ve since become a big fan. Like us, they have a healthy sense of their own importance (their subhead: “The best football blog on the planet!”).
What we like is their idiosyncratic take on the sport, such as their “Top 5 [or 10] Conclusions” series.
Or news reports like this:
West Ham’s pre-season friendly at Peterborough was given some extra, erm, bite by the presence of Mike Tyson. The cash-strapped boxer was in Peterborough for a £100-a-head Evening With The Baddest Man On The Planet.
He went onto the pitch at half-time wearing a Peterborough shirt and told the crowd through a loudspeaker: “I’ve never heard of Peterborough before but as soon as I heard it was West Ham I thought, we’ve got to really give it to them.”
He obviously didn’t see much of West Ham last season!
