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.

“The English Jesús Gil”

It would, of course, take the Guardian‘s La Liga correspondent to begin questioning Daniel Levy’s tenure at Tottenham.

UPDATE: The Telegraph follows suit, even more pointedly:

Somehow, despite a CV that reads more like the script of a disaster movie, Levy remains at the helm at White Hart Lane, where no doubt he will take credit for the improvement Redknapp will engender (well, it couldn’t get any worse). And you thought the City of London was the only place where incompetence was so richly rewarded.
