joe90's Author Profile

Hello there! I’m Joe, a football-loving amateur writer/blogger trying to play my way into the packed midfield that is Sports Journalism. I write regularly about Aston Villa here at FootballBlog, and try to cover many other issues affecting the global game that are otherwise missed, or simply glossed over, by the mainstream media. I love wingbacks, Emile Heskey and Non-League football, once spilt curry on David Bentley’s shoes, and secretly wish I was old enough to have seen Glenn Hoddle play. I also write, post, and contribute elsewhere on all things football related, sometimes under my own name, sometimes as joe90, and sometimes as my footballing alter-ego fiveinmidfield. Though essentially a Luddite by nature, I am now trackable on Twitter, and up-to-date links to all my ramblings can be found at If you like what you see there I urge you to visit
