If you tolerate this then your fans will be next

Feb

Football hooliganism is still rife in England and it baffles me why we are not banning those caught for life.

In an age where our every move is followed by CCTV cameras it seems the only reason that these so called “fans” commit such disgraceful acts is that they can get away with it.

Six years ago my brother was handed a three-year football banning order, along with twelve others, for an incident inside Carrow Road, the home of Norwich City.

Jake's pants get national exposure. Again.

Feb
18

As you know, we like to keep close tabs on our former CfJ students as their careers begin to flourish on the world journalism stage.

Occasionally, we (almost) wish we didn't. Especially when that career involves parading their underwear in the pages of national newspapers.
