The roster of senior appointments at the Football Association from among the ranks of television executives in recent years indicates just how influential  its on-screen presence, and the billions in earnings this generates, has become for the game.

Fred Martin: Scotland’s 1954 World Cup ’keeper

When a lanky teenager from Carnoustie joined Aberdeen as an inside-forward in 1946, there could not have been the merest ghost of a notion that he would go on to become the Dons’ formidably athletic last line of defence as they were crowned League champions for the first time in their history nine years later.

Parkinson's game plan is wrecked by Michu and Hernandez

Bradford City did not try to make Swansea City look good. They came to compete rather than entertain, to stay in the Capital One Cup final for as long as they could given the obvious gulf in class between the two teams.
