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.

Topple Every Statue

I’m pleased to announced that—thanks in part to readers just like you—we came home with a pretty decent haul from the inaugural EPL Awards sponsored by EPL Talk. Specifically, we won the People’s Choice award for Best EPL Blogger (me), and the Editor’s Choice awards for Best EPL Blogger (still me) and Best EPL Blog (this blog). We failed, however, to figure in the race for Best EPL Goalkeeper (Thomas Sørensen of Stoke City and Denmark). Next year, I guess.

Many thanks to everyone at EPL Talk, and unsafe levels of “super-thanks” to all of you who voted. Let me know if you ever need someone to administer medicine to your cat while you’re off parasailing in Antigua. (I could also take in your newspapers so that thieves will not know you are gone.)

See the full list of winners here.
