February Chill by Paul Thurlby

Over the weekend, The Guardian published an opinion piece by Barney Ronay entitled: “English football should snap out of its obsession with February chill.” Essentially, it was all about how a bit of cold is good for society and good for football, including, as Ronay puts it, forging “a stadium culture of glorious outdoor collectivism”. We’re in total agreement, as … Continue reading
