    Memory Lane Why Do I Support Southend?

    http://theseventytwo.com/football-league/league-2/2011/03/23/a-supporter-writes-iain-macintosh/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter It's been so long since I've posted, I think there's a danger that Cricko will move this to 'Ex-Shrimpers', but I thought I'd whack this over here in case...

    St Pauli Article

    Picked via Slipperduke's twitter feed (@iainmacintosh) I know they've been discussed before on here, but it's always good be reminded of their awesome support. Article adds an interesting slant on how they've carved out their own niche in the market driven world of modern football. Hope they...

    Shameless Plug

    As some of you know I spent most of last year, the bits inbetween freaking out about my wedding and writing for two different newspapers, clattering out four new sports books. My temples are considerably greyer as a result, but these books are now out in shops. Many of you answered my pleas...

    Foul Mouthed Wenger. Sort Of.

    Journalists and football managers have a fractured relationship. After all, it's difficult to cultivate friendships with a group of people who will praise you one week and actively seek your dismissal the next. I know that I'd be less inclined to enjoy Carlo Ancelotti's company if I opened up...

    Honeymoon Rage

    It should be really simple. All I want to do is to find a honeymoon. I'm actually a very easy-going person. I am a very nice person. I don't want much. I want sun. I want luxury. I want all-inclusive. I don't give a **** where I go. Anywhere hot. I don't give a **** when I go. Any time after...

    Deadline Day Drama! (sort of)

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours. Here's how his day panned...

    All I Want For Christmas Is....

    Football Manager 2009 Review

    I have a confession to make. My name is Iain Macintosh and I'm a Football Manager-aholic. It started with the original Championship Manager, way back in 1993. It took 45 minutes to load and there were no real player names, but it changed my life. The first football management game that didn't...

    It Could Be Worse, You Could Be Steve

    This is something a little different, it's for a magazine given to professional footballers. I'd be interested to know what you think. Football, as you'll probably know better than me, is a game of stark contrasts, subject to swift changes that are rarely polite enough to warn of their...

Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...
