Join The FSA

Extra Time!

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

As this is a post-Fans’ Parliament special newsletter we thought we’d start with a warning on what can go wrong when something goes right – and then you get a bit carried away in your celebrations. It could have been worse though – he could have been set on fire like Corinthians were. More than a little scary that one.

One guy who definitely wasn’t celebrating this effort was Nam Il-Kim. If his club has an own goal of the season competition – like a certain team we know who shall remain nameless – then he’s a winner. You would hope.

Thanks to the Dirty Tackle blog as well for this fantastic video of a ref somehow ending up on the receiving end of an awful tackle.

And to round off the 2008/09 Premier League season check out this video which shows a birds eye view of every ground – see how many you can guess. It’s not as easy as we thought it would be!
