Don’t you just hate this time of year?

Posted by John Beech on June 25, 2009

And I’m not referring to the closed season. There is after all some football to follow. A certain Confederations Cup result was certainly memorable – will the tabloids run with ‘End to 59 years of heartache’? This year is especially busy with insolvencies to follow – another on Monday perhaps?

No, what I’m referring to is a very specific fortnight. The time when a headline such as ‘Match-fixing allegations at Wimbledon‘(1) sets me thinking ‘What have the lads at Kingsmeadow been up to?’, only to discover, to my relief, that it’s an entirely different matter.
