SMHB is, like the greatest duos, defined by contrast. For every lithe and winsome Kylie there’s a coked-up Jason Donovan lumbering along right behind them. This blog is much the same, except there’s two Kylies and no misshapen blokes who used to be on Neighbours. Think on that readers, two Kylies. Brilliant. Here is what we’re about.
‘Football is the ballet of the masses’
Interesting football news and features from around the world. Informed reports and the occasional reflection on classic games, players and moments. We aren’t really into novel-length essays on whatever Gabriele Marcotti’s said is good this month, even if he is wicked. This is a celebration of intelligence, passion and beauty in football, wherever it occurs.
‘Football is Joey Barton masturbating in a library’
It’s ugly, stupid, violent, narcissistic and pretty horrifying to people who aren’t enjoying it themselves. Football is sports’ redheaded stepchild, a rag-tag collection of villains, clowns and the mentally ill, and it’s brilliant. Fewer stats, but more photos of Peter Crouch dressed as a penguin.
