A new passion and a new home

Increasingly disillusioned with the Premiership, Manchester-based Toon fan Jonathan has developed a passion for the wholesome delights and disappointments of lower league football, even going so far as to travel the breadth of the country to watch his adopted team Stockport County contrive to "snatch a draw from the jaws of certain victory" at Boston. His two-part report on the trip can be found here and here, and it's marvellous stuff. If you're a fan of Hobo Tread, you'll love it. And if you're not, why not?!

From new passions to a new home. Bank Holiday Monday saw Coventry fan Dr Migs pay his first visit to the Ricoh Arena: "Despite a building site feel to the surroundings, the important things, i.e. the view, the seats and the atmosphere, are excellent. The acoustics made a wonderfully reverberant sound that vibrated your chest during the songs and chants. I also got to touch the brick with my name on it in the Arena's wall. Cue new lucky pre-match ritual". It wasn't all good though...
