I am a young writer, 24 years old, with a keen interest in football and making my own way into the exciting world of football journalism. I am a massive Wigan fan, but my passion for the game takes me to any game I can make, and I watch huge amounts of games from all around the globe on TV or streams alike - LA LIGA , BUNDESLIGA and even the relatively unknown boundaries of the South American leagues in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. Obsessed? Pretty much. A football addict and I hope to spread my enthusiasm to anyone who reads my articles. Any comments, I can be contacted on my email address, and am always keen to contribute my views and discuss all things football! I am also part of a the footballspeak which is an up and coming site for a wide variety of football fans. You are more than welcome to sign up and be part of this rising name.
