A great piece on football and community

A great piece on football and community by David Conn in today’s graun (hidden away in the Society bit). Good quotage (near the bottom) too in an accompanying piece. Interestingly the pictures used to illustrate the article (in the actual paper-based version, the graun never uses these images online for some reason) have a youth worker of african/carribbean extraction working with kids of african/carribbean extraction as part of project with Chelsea, above it is a crowd pic from Stamford Bridge which, as far as i can see, is almost entirely made up of white faces…

On a related theme, i found this, um, thinkpiece, if you will, about Celtic, “celticness” and the community of Parkhead very interesting, although i don’t claim to be any sort of expert of the issues it raises.
