The Style Council Serie A Leaders  


I am an Italian football critic and an avid Style Council fan and like my favourite sport, the Council’s career is a tale of two halves. Paul Weller formed his new squad when he left his previous champion wining side, just as they were ready to topple the mighty Manchester United. The tactics were the same every match, there was talk of fights on the training ground and they played too many games. Although they had a wining formula, there was no width to their game and it was typically English - all kick and run.

Like many celebrated football managers, Bearzot was only a moderately successful  player, capped for Italy just once. It wasn’t until he put on a suit and strode the touchlines did he become football legend.

The hardest job in football has to be the job of the referee; they are paid (or in some cases not!) to keep the letter of the football law upheld. Sometimes, this can prove easier said than done. As a football fan, I’ve done my fare share of abusing referees: it’s part of the game, part of being a fan. But in the sober, non-football light, let’s be honest; it’s not an easy job.

Written by Paul Gallagher

Now I'm not a Motor Racing fan, the thought of 24 cars hurtling around tarmac in single file for a time,which then spring into life with the odd bit of dangerous driving and skill combined, didn’t appeal to a football fan like me, but watching the new documentary movie SENNA changed my opinion slightly.
