The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.

We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.

Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.

Boarding the Fleet

200percent has been reading through some of the legal papers surrounding the organization of myfootballclub, and is not encouraged by what he has found. I can’t pretend to know how serious any of the irregularities he’s come across might be, although precisely for that reason I would be anxious if this group had just purchased the football club I support. (And that’s true even if the oddities reveal administrative mistakes rather than sinister intentions.) In any case, the report is well worth reading for anyone looking for more concrete details about the myfootballclub takeover of Ebbsfleet, or for anyone looking forward to the day when all our decisions are made collectively by a colloquy of javascript poll widgets.
