The Public Gets What the Public Wants

From Boothferry To Germany world cup

A 6-1 victory represents England’s best ever match result in World Cup competition and much cause to celebrate. The British press have been pretty low-ball up to this point. The Three Lions went into the cup with far less expectation than is normally the case. But England have objectively been one of the stronger teams so far in the competition, and with heavyweights such as Germany, Brazil and Argentina faltering, we seem to be steadily returning to the old pattern of delirious dreaming overshadowing rational expectation. How many “Football’s Coming Home” social Continue reading

The Steeple Sinderby Wanderers FA Cup Run

Hull City Wembley

J.L. Carr’s “How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won The FA Cup” published by Penguin Books is an enjoyable short story that chronicles the success of fictional amateur side Steeple Sinderby Wanderers as they nonchalantly decide to compete in the Football Association Challenge Cup and proceed to lift the trophy at Wembley the same season. The geographical location of Steeple Sinderby is ambiguous but the club’s players, employees and associates are all village folk from the English back-country.

It may be far-fetched but the narrative is witty and glorious in its representation of the unglamorous reality of 1970’s English Football as seen by players and fans alike. The book is filled with classic lines Continue reading

From Boothferry To Germany’s 2017

From Boothferry To Germany blogger

We take this moment to laze back on the couch, picking a bit of tinsel out of a glass of gifted spirit and making a toast at FBTG HQ to a fantastic year. When we make that toast, we extend it to You.

2016 was our dawn and in many ways FBTG experimented to find its feet in its first year.

The year has seen a mind-numbing amount of highs for us, and we Continue reading
