Rob Pratley

When not found watching almost any European football coverage, Soccer Saturday, EFL Review on Quest, or the English Premier League, Rob enjoys crying passionately at repeats of Chelsea's Champions League Final triumph because it is so emotional. An avid football fan, he has an opinion on every team, every league and every player - from Perry Ng to Tammy Abraham, to Mark Creighton, Kim Jin-Su and Aarom Kuhl. Outside of writing for It's Round and White, Rob is a Black Belt at Tae-Kwon-Do and has an impressive collection of accidents and injuries.
