  • Okay, we know that this is well past it's sell by date but we didn't know that 'Doing a Yaya' was a real thing...until now.
  • Something to Raise our Dampened Spirits As a nation the English have sometimes been guilty of too o ften blaming the interference of lady luck for our footballing short comings. But once in a while th is attitude is well-founded, case in point - a certain Hand of God. What if things had been different?
  • The Managerial Series - Jurgen Klopp

  • Something to tie you over... As a means of getting away from the spreadsheets for a while, here's something I made earlier... Jurgen Klopp in the style of Craig Redman. Instead of spouting some no n-sensical bullshit about the man, I thought I would just share with you my three favourtie Klopp Gifs. Enjoy...I think I'm becoming...ready for it? A Klopptomaniac!!
  • Buy a Girl a Drink First.... The now common footage of Harry Redknapp poking his head out of hi s car window on a cold January evening has only helped to cement the image of the wheeler-dealer gee zah. I've a feeling that this is not the real Harry Redknapp. No, deep down he is just an old slapper, that old girl nursing a G and T in the corner of a tobacco stained, dirt trap local who has confi[...]
  • A Rose By Any Other Name... Sam Allardyce is a funny old bugger. On several occasions now he has joked that if he had a more foreign sounding name he would have been managing one of the top four b y now. Chances are however that he has never reached those heights because he has made his living as somewhat of a route one merchant.Hold it Hammer fans. Before you leap to the defence of your ex[...]
  • The Managerial Series - Steve Bruce

  • Never has such talent been scuppered by such unfortunate features... He had a glittering career as Manchester United captain. He led Birmingham City to the Premier League. He repeated the act wit h Hull City (Tigers) and has had a pretty blinding start this season. Alas, Steve Bruce's footballing acumen has recently been overshadowed (possibly forever more) by his looks.Partly thanks to th[...]
  • The Managerial Series - Arsene Wenger

  • Behind every good man... Historically, we at The Away Strip have been huge fans of Mr Wenger wh ilst not looking too fondly upon Steve Bould's "I told you so" face. However, that is slowly changin g.Not that we adore the beautiful brain of Wenger any less but perhaps we have judged the assistant manager book by it's cover.It was probably a rocky start between the two men. About 11 month[...]
  • There is something unbearably sad behind those eyes...  A direct descendant of the infamous Dut ch pirate Admiral Cornelis Jol, it is no surprise that Martin Jol is viewed as one of the hard men o f football management.The proof is there, Spurs fans fondly recall his squaring up with Arsene Wenger and he recently challenged anyone who boos him to meet him in the car park.Yet others ha[...]
  • The Managerial Series - David Moyes

  • The first in our Managerial Series - The Ailing Soul of David Moyes Edvard Munch's 'The Scream' i s an ode to the soul and a musing about the kinds of inner torment that can afflict even the best of us. It is something that David Moyes can relate to. Munch was inspired to paint his mellow, foreboding masterpiece whilst beholding the beauty of the fjords in his native Norway. A moment of existen[...]
  • Sir Alex Ferguson Retirement Homage

  • A belated farewell to one of the greatest football managers of all time. The 2013/14 season is now in full swing, David Moyes is the new Manchester United manager and yet it still feels hard to move on. The reign of Sir Alex is the kind of footballing phenomena that, like England winning the World Cup, Roberto Carlos' free kick and Joey Barton's french accent, may not be witnessed again in our li[...]
