Of Course He FJM’d Something

So this was super low-hanging fruit. So much so that I really considered not doing it. Instead I was going to FJM the comments on the same piece, because that’s even lower-hanging fruit.

We wrote a lot of words, some of them alright

Unprofessional Foul has been a beautiful thing in my life for a long time. I have a lot of friends as a result of our communal comment-sectioning in David Hirshey’s columns on Deadspin — and then the ‘stache ended up being one of the groomsmen in my wedding some years later. UFers have an almost […]

L’Affaire Valbuena

Although the story broke a while ago, everyone is still talking about “L’Affaire Valbuena.” Need to catch up? Confused from the start? Simply here for the titillation?

Divorce, Anger, Sadness: The Manchester United Story

  None of us would be here if not for the journey, and none of us knows where the journey will lead us from here. As I look back at the time since Unprofessional Foul shut its doors, I see a roller coaster of emotions, changes left and right, new love and massive sadness. The […]

The Good, The Bad, The WTF

Let’s not kid ourselves. We don’t really get to do these anymore. As such, I am dispensing with any notion that we might present a “good” or “bad” here and going straight to the WTF. That is what you want, right? Actually, I don’t care. Here we go. Welcome to Unprofessional Foul’s new venture, the […]

Sunday Bootroom: Party With London Bongo Edition

Saturday Bootroom: Bleeding Eyes Edition

I spent some time looking at the fixtures for today, and the first thing that happened was my eyes hurt from all of the gripping matches. Liverpool-Stoke? Citeh and Birmingham might be the best match in England today. Ick. Late...

The Bootroom: Premier League Kickoff Weekend!

Are we really about to start another season of the Premier League?? (Suck it, Barclays!) Sure enough, we are! Just think, this morning every single team has a mathematical chance at winning the title.  All, except for Burnley....

Thank mercy none of these games are in 3-D

Your Freezing Cold Saturday Bootroom

Great; my reward for waking up early is the chance to see the Reds screw up a trip to Molyneux. Can’t wait! Watching them under Kenny is a marginal improvement—the players seem to care more when they lose with Dalglish,...

Saturday Bootroom: It’s Finally Here!

Listen up kids, the EPL (suck it, Barclay’s!) kicks off this morning and for most of us this represents a spiritual reawakening after the dark times of no football. How excited are you about the opening of the season? Did...
