Prescot Cables v Ramsbottom United Programme

This programme was unusual, in that I used a couple of pages to write about a very personal subject; my own mental health. I was inspired, at least in part, by the Australian podcast By Association. I've been subscribing to this show since they collaborated with The Blizzard (who also have a fantastic podcast).

By Association ran an episode about an American whose long-distance support of Tottenham Hotspur is a coping mechanism for him. This had a strong connection with me and I wanted to express some of the nuances of my own personal and sometimes complex relationship with football. It took me a while, but eventually I found a way.

There were lots of positive reactions to the article and I think that makes me happiest of all when I think of this issue, which was pretty good anyway.
