I'm a director of Maidenhead United Football Club. For ten seasons one of my roles at the club was to produce the match programme. The aim of this blog was to write football related articles for publication in the match programme. In particular I like to write about the representation of football in popular culture, specifically music, film/TV and literature. I also write about matches I attend which generally feature Maidenhead United.

Actively Passive

Despite many viewings and a detailed explanation from a Gooner work colleague I am still at a loss to understand why Everton's goal was allowed to stand at the Arsenal on Tuesday night.  However in a way this made the evening by cranking up the atmosphere and forcing the game to turn into a right battle between two determined teams with the skill to match.  Unfortunately Arsenal's lack of a solid 20 goal a season striker again told against them as countless chances went begging until the introduction of Bendtner and Arshavin, coupled with a change to 4-4-2 and last melted the Toffee defence and instigated a swift comeback to overturn the deficit and claim the points.
Sincerely hope Everton continue to prosper under David Moyes, if only he had the funds to add two or three players to turn them into a consistent top six outfit.  Also glad to see that Marouane Fellaini is as cool as mo' fo' live as he is on the small screen.

Although undoubtedly a good manager, Moyes strikes me as a serial moaner. Think he’d be a good replacement for Fergie.

Likewise, Fellaini is a top player but some of his tackling leaves much to be desired.
