While Massimo Cellino spends the summer searching for new players and a man to lead them, football fans will have the World Cup as a welcome distraction from the usual frustrations of waiting for news and trying to imagine what our squad will look like on opening day.

    Where have you been TSS? Your well written and reasoned articles have been sorely missed. We’ve been left with the gloomy and dictatorial Lee Chapman’s Sofa (Clarke one nil) and the ever more sycophantic readership of Life, Leeds United, The Universe and Everything.
