You fancy yourself as a bit of a footballing oddities historian.
Prove your knowledge of the game and online research skills by creating entertaining and comprehensive lists on imaginative topics.
Dig up old and obscure news articles, photos, audio and video to construct definitive selections.
It’s great if they somehow relate to a recent event, but this is not essential.
If it’s fun, frivolous and football then it’s probably suitable for our website.
We have a focus on English leagues and try to promote the particularly funny over the repetitive and mundane flow of news from traditional football websites.
All we ask is that your submissions have not been published or submitted for publication anywhere else.
Please get in touch, we really want to hear from you!
