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.
In addition to being one of the best football bloggers on the internet, Tom Dunmore of Pitch Invasion is also a generous soul, and he has kindly invited me to write a weekly feature for his site. This week’s post is a field guide to the recent whirl of corruption investigations in English football: I try to sort out who’s investigating whom and why, a pressing question now that Harry Redknapp has tasted prison more recently than 50 Cent. Check out the post if you’re interested, and check out Pitch Invasion in any case. You’ll thank me later.
