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

Titus Bramble Championship GW4: Draft, by M Night Shyamalan

Sunrise, sunset. All good things must come to an end and nothing gold can stay. Luckily draft is neither good nor gold so it is back for another Gameweek packed full of intrigue, outrage and arguing over assist accreditation. Before we cast eyes forward to our gloomy horizons we must cover what happened in GW3, or as the papers will have it, the week that … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW4: Draft, by M Night Shyamalan

Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 26 September

Over the weekend many of Sussex’s non league teams held their first Covid-secure league games, and it would seem successfully so. Club staff and hardy volunteers all did their bit to ensure that games went ahead in Whitehawk, Lewes, Eastbourne, Peacehaven, Burgess Hill, Horsham, and Littlehampton but to name a few, and for this they deserve enormous credit. Undercurrent was at Lewes v Brightlingsea for … Continue reading Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 26 September

Titus Bramble Championship GW3: He who drafts last, drafts longest

Gameweek 2 was the perfect reflection of our current lives – chaotic, bloated and largely miserable. In amongst the rubble of our former lives three entire days of football took place and with them came an absolute shedload of goals. In what quickly became the Battle For The Bale, Sporting C.S.B trounced Karius Fan Club and set an early contender for “Largest points haul of … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW3: He who drafts last, drafts longest
