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.
It’s happening. It might be nice if it weren’t happening during the raw single digits of a Saturday morning, but I’m telling myself that the exhaustion and disorientation will help me understand what Man Utd have been feeling during the last two months of their championship run. Anyway, I’ll be around during the game, leaving a lot of comments.
Let’s experience the significance of this moment by leaving a lot of comments.
