Exhibition About the History of Football in England at the British Library – 21 August to 17 December 2013

If you’re in London between now and 17 December 2013, then you might like to visit the British Library to see this terrific exhibition about the history of football in England.

The exhibition is to mark the 150th anniversary of The English Football Association.

We especially like the sound of the 20 diagrams that are needed to explain the offside rule. Tsk, 20 diagrams needed to explain the offside rule – that does seem a terrific number.

The feminist interpretation of the offside law
Hmm, we remember the feminist theory which states that women are in fact the best people to explain the offside rule (no need for any diagrams!), as it’s all about how relationships between people change in time and space (and, well, men don’t really do that kind of relationship malarkey stuff).
