Beyond the Field of Play is not just about what happens within the confines of the stadia. It also offers coverage of socio-political issues in football with a particular soft spot for the Italian & English game. While predominantly focusing on issues surrounding football any relevant or eye-catching stories in the world of sport may also be discussed.

Both your opinions and feedback are welcome so feel free to comment on an article where appropriate, or email at: beyondthefieldofplay@gmail.com

I am also Editor in Chief for Richard Hall’s website – The Gentleman Ultra which features on the Guardian Sport Network. This includes my guide to the Ultras of Italian football.

    • Yes but sport gives even the poorest of the poor a great deal of pleasure. In India for example – cricket – the street kids have a pile of stones for stumps, a piece of wood for a cricket bat and a ball and it’s amazing to see their fun and joy that they might not otherwise have – it also teaches them team spirit, social skills and a sense of belonging and pleasure that they might definitely otherwise have. Yes we must fight for basic needs but also provide fun and play especially for children.
