Some great news for football fans of all clubs. The Guardian will be starting a new series of articles, called ‘Foul Play: The Seven Deadly Sins of Football’, with each supplement featuring sinful-tales of footballing misdemeanours.
They will be included in the Guardian and Observer newspapers for seven days, starting this Saturday (16 May), so remember to get your copy.
The supplements have been put together by a team of the Guardian and Observer’s award-winning sports writers, who have scratched beneath the shiny veneer of the modern Premier League era and discovered that the beautiful game has a secret history of the odd, the unexpected and the downright shady.
Here’s the complete list of the Guardian’s seven deadly sins of football:
16 May – Greed featuring David Beckham and Ashley Cole
