• Footballing Blogosphere: IBWM

    In what hopefully will be the first in a recurring series, Iíll be taking a look at the best of whatís out there in the blogsphere for the football fan.

    In Bed with Maradona

    In Bed With Maradona, or IBWM as it is also known as, has become a firm favourite of mine. The Guardian sings its praises from the rooftops claiming ďan outstanding variety of football stories from around the world and throughout the ages are told hereĒ. High praise indeed.

    You wonít find news stories or transfer gossip here. Nor will you find any pictures of WAGs or recycled stories from Sky Sports News. In fact, that is probably why I enjoy the site. The content is off beat, breathlessly switching from an article onthe McDonaldization of football to an investigation into Roger Millaís career after football, with a homage to Jacques Derrida somewhere in the middle.

    Content is king online and IBWM is absolutely brimming with it. The site operates a free submission model where if your piece is good enough, then it goes up. It appears to have become a lightning conductor for this type of quirky football writing and the site is teaming with articles you could just spend a day passing the time with.

    For anyone with a interest in the game beyond the confines of the pitch, I would thoroughly recommend jumping into bed with Maradona here.
