Hello and welcome to Planet Football. If this is your first visit, we hope it will be the first of many.
If you haven’t heard of us before, our aim when we launched in January 2017 was to celebrate everything that’s great about football. A lot of negativity surrounds the game nowadays, but we won’t add to it. We just want to make you smile.
Here, you’ll find tributes to great players and teams. You’ll find exclusive interviews, and you’ll find features about teams from all around the world, not just the top six of the Premier League. Oh, and you’ll find nostalgia too, lots and lots of nostalgia.
You won’t find any news articles because there are enough of those out there already, and you won’t find any knee-jerk opinion pieces 10 minutes after a game. We’re bored of all that and know we’re not alone.
As well as our longer articles, you’ll also find lots of short and less serious content too: quizzes, lists, videos and anything else we think might entertain you for five minutes on your morning commute or lunch hour.
We’re not snobs – just because we’ll read a 1500-word feature doesn’t mean we won’t watch the latest bit of Neymar skill too – and we think there are lots more like us. Hopefully you’re one of them!
Some might be surprised by Owen’s forthrightness.
