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 Mirror is calling it for Sam Allardyce.
UPDATE: The BBC is saying only that Blackburn have “approached” Allardyce. Cowards!
SECOND UPDATE: This one’s official.
