The War Room
Rejoice! The War Room is returning for another helping of distinctly above-average football discussion and analysis. The four-strong panel of journalistic titans from last season's pilot event will reconvene at The George Orwell in Islington tomorrow evening for the mouth-watering clash between Napoli and Chelsea and we hope to see you there...
The Panel comprises:
Anchor, author, commentator, journo... a formidable sporting polymath boasting vast experience of broadcasting on the BBC, ITV, ESPN and Eurosport among others, and our host for the evening.
A limitless source of insider knowledge and robust opinion on TalkSPORT radio in England, Newstalk radio in Ireland, the BBC World Service, BBC Five Live, BBC London and BBC Scotland, as well as spying on the English for France Football, Hydra-like Philippe has also penned the definitive biography of Eric Cantona and is a pop star in his spare time.
Since gifting the world at large a working knowledge of football tactics with "Inverting The Pyramid" back in 2009, Jonathan has reeled off a series of similarly engrossing books (most recently "Nobody Ever Says Thankyou", a biography of Brian Clough) and established himself as a world football correspondent with a truly encyclopaedic grasp of the game.
Perhaps it's too late to describe Michael as a rising star of football writing. Zonalmarking.net remains the web's one-stop shop for tactical analysis but its presence can now be felt all over the internet, as well as in the pages of FourFourTwo magazine and the Guardian, all of which would suggest that he has well and truly arrived. The evening should present a fascinating clash of systems and he is guaranteed not to miss a beat.
