Has everyone been reading this in The Guardian? Great series of articles from a real pro (who's identity is kept secret, you'd never have worked that out). One of the most interesting sets of football articles I've read for a long time.

I especially liked the one on pundits. We all know our pundits are inadequate, but just how inadequate are they?

The one on wages echoed what we've all said here a lot of times. It's stupid to blame the players for high wages, any worker will go for the best salary they can.

First one was on social media.

Very interesting.

It's one of the reasons I like Clarke Carlisle of Burnley.

I read the one on Andy Gray but I didn't know at the time it was part of a set of articles. Good reads :beer:
