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.
And speaking of taking the tabloids seriously, the Mail has the goods on the shocking, one might even say pointless, escalation of hostilities between Guus Hiddink and Cristiano Ronaldo, which I deeply, deeply hope will become one of the signature footballing enmities of 2009. Guus thinks he only won Player of the Year because of his haircut!
