Over the last couple of days, I have been plugging away two links on a variety of social media. I have just realised, however, that those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter or like Holding Midfield on Facebook are impervious to my plugging, hence this shameless post.
The first link is the e-petition for the full disclosure of all government documents relating to the Hillsborough disaster. Providing you live in the United Kingdom, there really is no excuse for you not to sign this petition. All you need to do is fill in a small form and check your email to help the families of the 96 who died due to police incompetence. At the time of writing, the number of signatures stands at 93,203, close to the magic 100,000 mark needed to make it eligible for debate in the house of commons, so your signature could be very important.
The second link is a bit more self-involved: I have a piece in issue two of Man and Ball magazine about cheating in Italian football, and how much money I earn from writing it depends on how many of you buy it. At just Â£1.95, it’s not going to bankrupt you, and there’s plenty of great pieces deserving your cash.Â Should you not be willing to part with your coin without testing the waters first, you can download issue one for free and see if it’s your kind of thing. Thought of everything, haven’t they?
So, yeah, get on that.
Update: Issue Two of Man and Ball is now free, so there’s no excuse for not downloading it.
