Lowry’s Going to the Match expected to fetch £8m at auction

Painting done in 1953 of crowds outside Burnden Park being sold to raise money for footballers’ charitable foundation

They stream towards the turnstiles, stick-like figures instantly familiar to anyone who has looked at a painting by LS Lowry.

In the foreground, their coats and hats are distinct. In the background, beneath the tall chimneys of a long-gone heavy industry, the people are a blur. But all of them have a common purpose: going to the match.

Dion Charles inspires Bolton rout as sorry Sunderland are hit for six

If Sunderland’s recent past is littered with embarrassments, this was another candidate for the title of a historic low. They can seem to be slumming it in League One, but they slumped to their heaviest ever defeat in third-tier football.

Their afternoon was summed up when Danny Batth, with a finish that was both unwitting and unstoppable, donated Bolton’s fifth goal with a spectacular diving header.

Boxing Day 1963 goal feast is famous but what happened two days later?

The results on 26 December 1963 – 66 goals in 10 games – are celebrated every year. They are only half of the story

By Richard Foster for The Football Mine

As the frenetic Christmas schedule swings into action, players in England are very much in the minority among major European leagues in readying themselves for the customary glut of games squeezed into the tightest of holiday schedules. While the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 are embarking on a winter break, Premier League and Football League clubs face the prospect of three games in a week, starting with the traditional Boxing Day fixture. Until the late 1950s, there was even a full programme of games on Christmas Day itself, as one of the few public holidays that allowed working people to attend matches.

Boxing Day has become enshrined in English football culture as a much-loved curiosity of the fixture list. One reason why Boxing Day matches gained popularity was the extraordinary events of 1963, when 10 matches in the First Division produced a scarcely credible 66 goals, a feat that is still commemorated to this day. What fans may not know is what happened in the fixtures that followed two days later on 28 December. Many of the games were rematches from Boxing Day and there were some stunning turnarounds.

Without a regulator with teeth, my beloved football will destroy itself | Alison McGovern

Rewards at the top are extreme, so people take crazy financial risks with clubs’ futures while fans can only look on in horror

If you are reading this article, you probably already care about football. Perhaps you protested against the European Super League or felt the pain of Bury, Bolton or Wigan fans. You have heard the football rumour mill grinding: the Crouch review is on its way and, with it, the potential for major change.

Here’s a common story. Some people inherit houses, some even still inherit titles. I inherited football. My grandad got a free ticket to Anfield in school and 55 years later he took me. My life has been counted not just in school years and, every so often, elections, but in football seasons. It is how my family functions.

The power of perceptions and PR in football management

Football is a results business but it is also a branding exercise. And, once you have a reputation, it’s hard to shake it

By Chris Evans for The Set Pieces

“I won’t ever be going to a top-four club because I’m not called Allardici, just Allardyce,” joked Sam Allardyce nearly a decade ago. He was the West Ham manager at the time and was fielding a question before a match with Manchester City. He quickly qualified that what he said was “tongue in cheek” but there was a ring of truth to what he said. Allardyce had a PR problem, an issue that has only exacerbated in the nine years since he made that jibe to the roomful of reporters. Many other managers have struggled with the same issue in recent years.

Even if manager PR is not a tangible thing, there is no doubt it affects coaches’ job prospects, especially in an era when the sheer mention of a club being linked with a new boss can inspire a huge reaction online. Terrace opinions have always influenced the game, but social media only magnifies perceptions, whether they are factual or not.
