Tier 3 rule change paves way for Non League football return

A limited number of fans in Tier 3 areas will be able to spectate non-elite sporting events, according to new guidance from the FA. The FA has announced that a limited number of spectators will be permitted to stadiums currently under Tier 3 restrictions, helping to pave the way for the return of Non League Football as soon as January (in theory). “We have today … Continue reading Tier 3 rule change paves way for Non League football return

Titus Bramble Championship GW8: 2020: A Draft Odyssey

Gameweek seven was an oddity of our times. The wildfires of chaos that typify our modern life were extinguished by the forces of rationality and reason. Real Shepperton beat Karius Fan Club, Muschampions ground out another win, the Red imps fell back to lesser ways and an imperious AVERAGE performance brought Sporting CSB back to earth. Whether or not the Titus Bramble Championship can turn … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW8: 2020: A Draft Odyssey

Whitehawk FC appoint Ross Standen as first team coach

Titus Bramble Championship GW7: Draft finds a way

Gameweek six was one to forget for a great many reasons: The goals dried up, all the big lads blanked, Real Shepperton lost, VAR decisions ruined ties and the spirit of fair play was seemingly abandoned for a weekend – all equally awful occurrences. The Titus Bramble Championship was not safe from the chaos of real life and threw up a stomach full of bile-covered … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW7: Draft finds a way

Titus Bramble Championship GW6: Life in the Draft lane

Gameweek 5 eh? What a week that was. We had highs, we had lows, we listened to Underoath at 3am, it was a real time I’ll tell thee. The week that is has now become that which was, so a recap is surely in order: Karius Fan Club kept up their tradition of losing to absolutely everyone as they fell to AVERAGE, the footballing equivalent … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW6: Life in the Draft lane

Titus Bramble Championship GW5: The Draft Who Loved Me

Remember Draft? Remember how good life was before the fun-vacuum of the international break rolled in and fucked everything up? It often seems incomprehensible that we ever felt happy, that we ever woke up on a Saturday with a heart full of hope, a Skybet account full of cash, and stomach ready to be full of lager. Lo, Christian soldiers rejoice! Cry Hallelujah for Draft … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW5: The Draft Who Loved Me

Pressure mounts on the Government to admit football crowds

The #LetFansIn campaign has gained considerable traction in the past 48 hours with a slew of high-profile clubs throwing their weight behind the cause. With clubs from the UK’s seventh tier of football and below having successfully welcomed fans back to their grounds (with social distancing measures in place) teams higher up the pyramid are putting their weight behind the #LetFansIn campaign. Just this week … Continue reading Pressure mounts on the Government to admit football crowds

It’s (almost) come home

Ring the bells, dance in the street and rejoice. Non league football is admitting fans – albeit at reduced numbers and with social distancing measures in place. In one small way football has come home. The incumbent Tory government has got football very wrong, very often. Since the Covid pandemic kicked off we have had; Matt Hancock, the world’s smarmiest prick (Undercurrent Awards 2020) scapegoating … Continue reading It’s (almost) come home

Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 03 October

Whilst the Premier League saw perhaps the most absurd weekend of its history it was pretty much service as usual down in Sussex Non League. First off, they say that the more things change the more they stay the same, and it would seem that such is correct, for whilst the world is changing at an ever greater pace, Lewes FC are still absolutely rubbish. … Continue reading Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 03 October
