TTU Awards 2011-12: Crimes against Football

Of course ‘crime’ is an emotive word — not least in the current climate where ‘innocent ‘til proven guilty’ is, perhaps rightly, followed to the nth degree as a principle. Hence, events of February 8 proved that a certain Serb is by no means a tax evader although he’ll be grateful that no members of our judging panel were called to jury service that day.

TTU Awards 2011-12: Best Ground

This year’s award for Best Ground just has to go to Brighton’s AMEX. The wait may have been long and tortuous for the Seagulls but their new stadium is a strong addition to the 72’s roster.

Brighton have basically been immune to any sort of criticism for a couple of years now. Their League 1 team of 2010-11 was wondrous; they’re gradually becoming one of the UK’s foremost community clubs; the easy transition last season from the Withdean to Falmer was the kind of move that the majority of football supporters will only get to realise in their imaginations … the list goes on…

TTU Awards 2011-12: Best Kit

Last year, the comments section in this category combusted at the suggestion that QPR’s Celtic aping green and white away kit was the best of the 144 or so outfits on offer to choose from. A day later, we were engulfed in yet more hot water when citing ignorance of tradition as a reason to dislike Southampton’s Peruvian impression.

So it might seem hypocritical to honour Erreà : …
