  • Question and Answer

    About the strip / kit of Blacksnape FC. Before we start this post, I’d like to update the match information. We were hoping for a final pre-season friendly match today against Speccysavers United (one of those teams who have been taken over by a corporate owner… well a bloke with a glasses shop), but unfortunately […]

  • Spotlight on… attack!

    Hello world-wide-web once again! And welcome to some pre-season analysis of Blacksnape FC’s attacking prowess.

From the performance last season the attacking third was the most in need of improvement, if you don’t consider needing to drastically […]

  • Spotlight on… midfield.

    MF – Konnor Fenton MF – Jack Crompton MF – Nikos Nikolopoulou  MF – Paul Beamish MF – Stuart Waddicor Here we are again, safely back from the pub to ponder over the midfield and give you the benefit of our wisdom. Old Doug probably shouldn’t have insisted on the double brandy for the road, […]
