Been reading throughout the day. It's fantastic, so much different content about teams and sports I'm interested in.

Seems like they're having daily Q&A's with podcasts being added. Early impressions: £30 for the year is an absolute bargain.

I've had it since last year because of other sports i'm interested in, worth every penny. I didn't know they were investing in staff for football mind.

Good to hear.

The app is slick as f***, like. But that quote Wullie highlighted doesn't sit right with me at all; it's absolutely lifting regardless of whether he apologised or not for it.

Doesn't take much to beat the Chronicle's coverage tbh. Yet more dull recollections of yesteryear. They f***ing love it.

Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

I don't love the app, like. Pretty clunky having to continually press the back button at times and stuff like only being able to delete everything in your bookmarks rather than individual articles. I can't seem to unfollow my subscriptions, either?

Edit, re the last point, found it (manage national coverage)

Signed up, this seems to have solved a huge gap in the market. Excited for what they do with the platform.

The guys behind it are the definition of douche Silicon Valley tech bros, but if they can get the product half as good as what they currently produce for the USA sports market, it's worth the every cent.

They were already producing some decent football content, but very top team centric - if anyone will do a good job shining the light on fatty, it's them.

Had a look this morning, and they're are loads of new articles.

Loving how bitter that snide Neil Custis is about the situation. Well funny.

Am I the only person who thinks the majority of football writing is complete gash? I genuinely wouldn’t dream of paying for it. You get zero tactical analysis from these people they barely understand the game imo
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Football journalism is typically awful and they somehow show more hubris than agents. They behave as if they're somehow integral to the game and the oracles of truth. In reality most of them can barely string an original thought together and know f*** all about football.

Each to their own, but disagree with this. Clearly there is some s**** football journalism, but there's some great content out there IMO.

The Chronicle’s content is getting worse. Click bait and filler nonsense.

And their website is the most un-user friendly experience ever.

I for one am just shocked that Lee Ryder wasn't one of the chosen ones.

Obviously overplayed his hand during the negotiations and refused to budge from his two Greggs vouchers and a 6 pack per week demands that Keith Bishop is currently paying him.  Definitely overpriced for a man of his... talents.

totally agree. paid way too much, way too much self importance. If anyone can tell me why either Custis brother deserves to comment on football then go for it

Custis is utter gash, but The S*n isn't journalism.

If you get no enjoyment from well written football articles, then fair enough.
