Feature articles in this category:

Bend It Like Beckham - Two Perspectives (2/2) - Anjana Gadgil (UK female), August 2003

Bend It Like Beckham (2002) is a hit film which chronicles the struggles of a young British-Asian teenager Jess. Despite the ambitions of her family Jess doesn't want to end up as a solicitor or doctor. Instead, she wants to emulate her hero, David Beckham, and become a footballer. The film has been a major hit in the UK, and surprisingly, quite a big hit in the USA too. Here we have the perspectives on the film from a female British writer and a male American writer.

Kit Designer, Darran Medley - Simon Inglis, October 2001

'When designing football shirts you're dealing with a property which is culturally important to so many people world-wide.'

Stadium Architect, Derek Wilson - Simon Inglis, September 2001

"Fans have to be able to say, I know where that is, I recognise that stadium. Or there's my football club. I belong to that."

Architectural Modeller, Alastair Gaff - Tony Grimes, September 2001

'The old grounds may have been gloomy and draughty but they had real character.' Being born and bred in the magnificent Scottish capital of Edinburgh, you would expect architectural modeller Alastair Gaff to have an appreciation of historic buildings. Yet it is not castles or churches which get Gaff excited - it is old football grounds.

Footy On Film - Phil Minshull, October 2003

Football and films have both been part of popular culture for more than a century but their paths have only just started to cross regularly. Phil Minshull looks at the recent growth of films about football.

Performance Poet, Rosemary Dun - Simon Inglis, July 2001

'"You don't understand, about boys and football ..." announced my - soon to be ex-boyfriend, with a sneer. So, No I don't understand. But I could have if all of you had let me.'

Painter, Laura Green - Simon Inglis, July 2001

'People who are interested in football are very rarely interested in art.' Or at least they were until the recent emergence of a rather unusual 22 year old artist, Laura Green. Laura is so enamoured with football grounds that during her last four years' training at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, in England, she has painted little else.

Children's Author, Bob Cattell - Simon Inglis, November 2001

'To me as an author what is interesting is how young players cope with pressure. Will they buckle under or pull through?'

Football Philosopher, Mark Perryman - Simon Inglis, November 2001

'Football is, to me, a symbol of popular internationalism.' Fast talking Tottenham fan Mark Perryman wears many hats, one of them a woolly 'bobble' hat (as last seen on English football terraces circa 1965).

Football Music, Jim Phelan - Simon Inglis, December 2001

'Friends in the record industry told us, "Football and music? Forget it! The two just don't go together." But we decided this stuff had to be heard.'

Photographer, Ian Beesley - Simon Inglis, June 2001

'I am a fan first, photographer second.' As Simon Inglis reports Ian Beesley sometimes found himself cheering while other photographers were busy snapping the action!

Playwright, Clifford 'Olly' Oliver - Simon Inglis, June 2001

"Football is where the real theatre is, but for it to remain relevant it has to adapt." The struggle against racism in British football - on and off the field - has turned up many champions, but none as committed as 44 year old playwright Clifford Oliver.

Web Cartoonist, 'Ormondroyd' - Simon Inglis, June 2001

"Football writes its own humour because the characters involved are just so funny." We all take football far too seriously. That is the belief of Fulham supporter 'Ormondroyd', whose hilarious 'virtual match reports' on the web have attained cult status amongst English football fans.
