TTU Awards 2012-13: Crimes against Football

In a less competitive year, that podgy tosser Steve Evans and his nasty-piece-of-work sidekick Paul Raynor might have had this category sewn up, so tiresome is their relentless abuse of officials.

Similarly, Richard Scudamore and the Premier League would have been worthy winners, their blackmail tactics having once again divided the Football League’s clubs over the issue of parachute and solidarity payments.

TTU Awards 2012-13: Loan of the Season

Inevitably, Watford Football Club loom large in this first category of the TTU Awards. We’ve followed the Hornets’ link up to Granada and Udinese closely over the past nine months. First, William Abbs drew our attention to the project back in July; then, Matt Rowson helpfully introduced us to the dramatis personae, before Michael Moruzzi provided a spirited defence as the naysayers gathered and our own co-founder Lloyd
