My mum's matter-of-fact declaration, delivered to my five-year-old self on a cold December evening thirty years ago has been running through my mind of late.

277. Tim Corbyn

Being born in a small non-league town called Worcester, there was very little local football to really get into. We have always been brushed off as not being part of the West Mids, so I had no interest in Villa or Brum. When I was 7, my best friend was redshite and I was a nobody....Read More

I was born and raised a 'red' by a pair of armchair 'reds'. In fact my whole family were particularly stupid. I felt so alone and lived under a cloud feeling I didn't belong. It always felt wrong somehow; who in their right mind would follow the shite? I felt uncl...Read More
