TTUâ€™s Goodreads: 04-01-13
Here at TTU, weâ€™ve all headed back to work this week. Helping to ease the pain have been a number of well researched and written articles, as youâ€™d perhaps expect on the back of a holiday season which for many provides the kind of time and space which is unattainable in and around normal working weeks.
As weâ€™re wont to do on this site, our recommend list begins this week with another list. Headed proudly by our very own Rob Langhamâ€™s post on Speaking Out on the Internet, this selection of articles represents a fine yearâ€™s work by professionals and mere enthusiasts alike and will have provided a neat distraction for any reluctant worker heading back to the office this week.
The quantity of coverage generated by Two Hundred Percent is quite staggering. With articles such as this â€“ from Ian King â€“ however, they prove again that rate of postage neednâ€™t come at the expense of quality. Here, King – in the manner of one Scroobius Pip â€“ takes us through a sequence of 10 rules that goalkeepers should adhere by, no doubt tickling a few bellies along the way. Taken from #10, â€œNothing on a football pitch says â€˜Iâ€™ve given upâ€™ quite like a goalkeeper with their shirt untucked.â€ Quite.
So Henning Berg was a bit shit. But that doesnâ€™t absolve the Blackburn board â€“ whomever that comprises these days â€“ of responsibility for his appointment or the continued open-air, all-out shambles that the club insists on portraying itself as. One of the latest episodes, a live interview with Roversâ€™ Global Advisor Shebby Singh â€“ will have done little to allay supportersâ€™ fears and embarrassment. Mark Chalcraft followed up with a nice prÃ©cis here.
