Non-League Picture of the Month: Things you'll only see at your local ground



Simon Langston: Maidstone United 1 v 0 Dagenham & Redbridge 

Just look at that picture above. Isn't it glorious. 

There are few things in life more magical than a shed end and a portacabin cafe. Going to a non-league ground can be like stepping back in time, where flopping on the ground is met with a "get up" from your own manager, and where Bovril is still 30p.

Quick Take: Titans' AJ Bell experiment provided the blueprint for success, are BAFA listening?


No One Said The World Cup Is Fair

By Nathan Powe
The World Cup is a brutal mistress, she promises great rewards but sometimes all you get is an early flight home or a broken vertebra.

The Quarter-Finals have been completed and we're left with heavyweight clashes as hosts Brazil face off against Germany and the Netherlands are set to take on South American powerhouses Argentina. For many these Semi-Final draws are ideal, the two big local nations are there and two major European teams have made it through. However there are millions around the globe who have been enthralled only to be left disappointed as new found favourites have fallen. It's not fair, but hey, that's football for you.
