LESS INSIGHT THAN MATCH OF THE DAY BUT MORE SWEARING THAN SCARFACE
We are creating a new series of podcasts about football fans, why they love football, the clubs that they support or specific memories that ties them indelibly to the sport.
In a world increasingly governed by money, broadcasters and corporate sponsorship the supporters are in danger of being forgotten or being replaced by VIP match day packages.
We wanted to create something to document supporters and the passion that they have for football, so we created My Story.
We are looking for fans to tell us their story. Why they love the club that they support, why they support a particular club or games/seasons that have left them with the passionate memories that football is capable of producing in us all.
After sharing this idea on Twitter, we had a incredible amount of interest from people offering to talk about their love for football and their clubs.
If you would like to feature in this series and share your story with us, we want to give you the platform to tell it. Email us at email@example.com or message us on Twitter.
All are welcome.

A few weeks back Colin, the creator of Counter Attack, was kind enough to send the lads a prototype copy of the board game to play test. They had been chomping at the bit to experience Counter Attack ever since they came across it on Twitter.
Colin and Kieren played it last weekend with Kieren's brother and nephew, Elliott and Leo and it did not disappoint! In teams of two they went head to head in what turned out to be a battle of opposite tactics and some woeful defending at corners. There was some silky footwork on display alongside clinical challenges and one team desperately resorting to route one football in a bid to win the game.
Counter Attack is sensational. Why are you still reading this? You should be clicking the PURCHASE COUNTER ATTACK HERE button NOW.
If you are a fan of table top football games or football manager simulations then trust us when we say, this is a must! The design of Counter Attack means that it is fluid and dynamic to play as well as requiring you to be at your sharpest tactical best to beat your opponent.
Thankfully, the Kickstarter is fully funded now because the football world needs this board game. Counter Attack is a truly unique and very well executed experience.
Colin and Kieren had the pleasure of interviewing Colin about Counter Attack for this podcast.

Despite being fully funded you can still order your copy of Counter Attack until the 18th of May. It is around £30 and that is serious value for money.
The first rule of Football Fight Club is that you do not talk about Football Fight Club......

The guys at Old School Football were kind enough to send us some shirts to have a look at and we were blown away. We received a 1972-76 Juventus shirt and a 1905 Chelsea polo shirt. The quality of these items is incredible. We are not talking a t-shirt that has had a print put on it. You can feel the quality as soon as you open them up. Each order is hand checked before it is sent out and the attention to detail and care that these garments have received is clear with one look. Alongside football shirts there is also Polo shirts, scarves and hoodies. For any rugby fans you will also find plenty of retro rugby stock to look over.
The guys at Old School Football have generously given us a discount code to pass onto you, the podcast listeners. Until the end of May you can use the code HALFANDHALF10 at checkout to receive 10% off the items in your basket. There is already free UK shipping so combine that with our code and that Juventus shirt looks like an absolute bargain!

The Half and Half Scarves Podcast has teamed up with the After Dark Podcast Network. Look them up on Twitter and Facebook and start enjoying some of the podcasts they have in their army.
Welcome to the Half and Half Scarves Podcast. This is what happens when a bunch of mates get together to talk about football and the clubs they support. A shambolic mash of stats, unqualified opinions and chat about the game we love. In short, some miserable sods who hate half and half scarves and your half time skinny lattes.
The podcast is made up of four mates that all support different clubs:
Drew (West Ham)
Each week they discuss their clubs results and all of the action from the Premier League.
...and all of the places that you like to listen to your podcasts.
