Football writer? We’re here for you…
It’s fair to say we’re living in a very difficult time and many of us have a lot of time on our hands while we do our bit for the NHS by staying inside. The lack of football has also made a lot of us very bored – but why not at least fill that void by submitting your football writing to our platform?

We will consider all types of articles; from thought-provoking opinion pieces to player profiles, to tactical analysis and beyond – if you’re a football writer looking for a platform with a global audience in its millions then please take a look below for details on how to get published and details on the types of content we’re specifically looking for.

Content we’re looking for
We already have an array of different and creative content strands, and we’re particularly looking for submissions of the following.
All we ask is that the subjects are purely English football-related only…
In the Pipeline – A look at the next generation of talent breaking through, whether that’s academy players already at English clubs, those doing well for England youth teams or reported transfer targets.
Performance In Numbers – Looking at the statistical performances of current players and transfer targets. These can range from individual games to season-long form and can analyse individuals on their own or compare to a relevant contemporary.
Player Zone – Articles focused on one specific player, highlighting strengths and weaknesses, looking back on their long careers or questioning whether they’re on the cusp of greatness.
Opinion – A generic opinionated article on anything about the beautiful game in the UK. Whether that’s your take on what should happen to football during the current Covid-19 outbreak or why you believe your club’s manager should be sacked/given a new contract – this is your chance to get whatever you want off your chest.
Big Talking Point – There are always big talking points in football? Have your say on the day’s big talking point by giving your view.
Transfer Opinion – Even if they do find a way of completing the season, there’s still a transfer window coming up thick and fast this summer. Transfer Opinion articles give you the chance to have your say on the players you think certain clubs should be targeting, and those you think they should be looking to offload ahead of next season.
Chalkboard – Chalkboard articles look at players who could arrive and slot straight into a certain club’s tactic system, whether that’s to improve a certain area of the starting XI or to succeed an outgoing star player.
Transfer In Numbers – These articles give a statistical look at transfer rumours. Is the player improving the side, or would his transfer fee be better spent elsewhere?
Predicted XI’s – This content strand does exactly what it says on the tin. With the transfer window coming up, what do you think a certain club’s starting XI could look like at the beginning of next season once their transfer business is completed?
