English football and the war to abolish the wage cap

SoccerLens at related • 0 views

In 1885, the Football Association announced to legalise the employment of professional footballers. Clubs could now pay their players a full working wage, quite in contrast to what had been the norm previously when teams were made up of amateurs.

Many clubs were enticed by the idea as it presented a lucrative opportunity to earn money; primarily from match day tickets, and immediately turned from amateur to professional.

In October 1973, Israel and a coalition of some Arab nations engaged in a conflict known as the Yom Kippur War. The discord commenced when the Arab coalition launched attacks on several Israeli-occupied territories on Yom Kippur or ‘The Day of Atonement’ – the holiest day in Judaism.

The fighting mostly took place in the Golan Heights, Sinai and the other areas under Israeli occupation since the Six-Day War in 1967.

The Rest

How I got into Groundhopping

The Groundhog at related • 0 views

I can't believe it took me so long to get into non-league football and groundhopping. Having always had a fascination for stadiaand a love of football it was a hobby just waiting for me. I used to get around the '92'following my team and considered myself a groundhopper then; but I realise now that in limitingmyself to the leaguegrounds I wasmissing out on some of the finer aspects of football aspects that have been diminishing fast from the league these last few decades

Watching non-league football is like going back in time to the football of yore (well the eighties in my case).
