First and most importantly a lifelong Chelsea FC and general Premier League fan. Appreciation and interest in all European football with a keen eye on the running and successes of English Premier League Clubs. From tactical analysis to a club's sociological impact, high level football is my passion and takes up all of my free time.

Fortunate enough to been to games all across Europe and develop a wide range of opinions and viewpoints on many different aspects of the beautiful game. In the middle of a Law degree so expect reasoned and objective arguments. Known by my peers for my original and left-field ideas about the game - backed by hard statistics and evidence.
