About

Purpose:
After enjoying, or suffering, through several weeks of football (soccer), we try to look beyond the punditry and add more comprehensive analysis than what one gets during the half hour segments with ESPN FC (or MNF SkySports if you’re British). We cover a variety of  topics ranging from tactics, transfers, players to watch, and occasional topics of interest.

Favorite Teams:
The writers for this blog are Tottenham and Manchester United supporters, respectively, and have rooting interests in other leagues as well.

Why call this the Prawn Sandwich Brigade?
Because me and my co-author appreciate a healthy dose of irony. There was a famous quote from former Manchester United player Roy Keane who criticized a very dour Champions League atmosphere at Old Trafford in 2000.

Away from home our fans are fantastic, I’d call them the hardcore fans. But at home they have a few drinks and probably the prawn sandwiches, and they don’t realise what’s going on out on the pitch. I don’t think some of the people who come to Old Trafford can spell ‘football’, never mind understand it

Of course, this is symptomatic of  many big clubs across Europe not just Manchester United, so what we’re trying to show is that football is no picnic.

What’s a Prawn Sandwich?
Seriously? It’s a bunch of prawns put in between two pieces of bread and garnished with typical sandwich ingredients.  Actually it’d be easier to show you.
