Red carpet for awards

It’s that time of year again to celebrate the efforts of football bloggers around the country and it’s been a busy year for me.

Yes I Can Explain The Offside Rule (YICETOR) has had a nip and tuck and looks shinier than a red carpet Oscar winner. I launched a new project in January called Football’s Fallen, which has brought some of the best bloggers and writers in the country together. To add the finishing touch to this exceptional year I’ve been given any supporter’s dream job of writing a weekly fan’s column about Sheffield Wednesday for the Sheffield Star.

This is a year to celebrate and both my blogs are eligible to be shortlisted for awards. Blogger of the Year for the Football Supporters Federation, The Football Blogging Award’s Best New Blog for Football’s Fallen and third time lucky as Best Female at the FBA’s.

In 1982, both players also turned their talents in the recording studio. With the Albion, Foster had a stab at singing on ‘In Brighton’ / ‘The Goldstone Rap’.

Fozzie also featured in the official England World Cup Squad song: ‘This Time (We’ll Get It Right)':

Believe it or not, a whole album of songs was released:

1982worldcup

As noted by Derek Hammond and Gary Silke in ‘Got Not Got':

The FA’s resolute refusal to acknowledge disco, punk or even New Romanticism was partly tempered on the ‘This time We’ll Get It Right’ LP, where Justin Fashanu’s frankly astonishing ‘Do It Cos You Like It’ predated the thrust of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Relax’ by at least a year.

Google - Brazil Painted Streets

Taking a snapshot of the World Cup emblazoned streets of Brazil and bringing to you wherever you are, Google has utilised street view in a rather beautiful way.

I would urge you to check this out.

You can pick a number of streets from all over the contry. Get stuck in and take a peak. It’s a great sight!

Google - Brazil Painted Streets 1

Google - Brazil Painted Streets 2

Google - Brazil Painted Streets 3

Google - Brazil Painted Streets 4

Similarly, if you like that…you can also take a look inside all the stadiums being used throughout the tournament in the same way. Just head over here for these.
