This Is Deep Play

Hallowe'en Special 2013



Loss, disappearance, death. A rambling wide-ranging discussion to kick-off series 2. Featuring extinct football clubs such as Nunhead FC and Middlesbrough Ironopolis, the Spectre of Marx, epochs in football, the similarities between squats and non-league grounds, the gothic horror of Roy of the Rovers and how death somehow seems more real in football. Concludes with a call to embrace morbidity in football.
