TTU Awards 2013-14

The uneasy interregnum between the regular football season and a major international tournament is once again amongst us and we’ll be taking our now customary break from proceedings as events unfurl in Brazil. First, however, we shall be running a fifth set of annual installments of our TTU Awards. These will get underway later this morning and will stretch over the next few days with blog founders Rob Langham …

TTU Awards 2012-13: Young Player of the Season

When we announced the winner of the loan signing of the season on Tuesday, friend of the blog and author of The Long Way, A. E. Greb mischievously commented that Wilfried Zaha could perhaps have been in contention.
