About Us

Hello! My name is Mark Finlay and I have a passion for football/soccer that has been with me ever since I went as a young boy to watch Southport FC in what was then the English 4th Division.

Having no real skills myself when it comes to playing the game, and never having been involved on the coaching side either, I still feel as though I am a part of the sport possessing a love of the beautiful game that allows me to not only express my opinions but also let others follow what is happening with the teams they support, and especially so when it comes to transfer windows.

To borrow a line from a former shoe salesman Arrigo Sacchi, who never played football professionally yet later went on to manage Serie A giants A.C. Milan and the Italian national team.

When once asked about his qualifications to manage the team Sacchi replied: “I never realised that in order to become a jockey you have to have been a horse first.”

We try our best to stick with facts from reliable sources and do not speculate on any possible transfers unless there is sufficient information to back it up.

When the transfer window is closed we bring you news of all the top-clubs in Europe as well as our opinions on players and teams.

David Bradford
Spurs supporter since the 1967 FA Cup Final between Spurs and Chelsea. It’s the first game I remember, and as a Londoner I had to make a choice; I chose Spurs, they won 2-1, and have been my pleasure and pain ever since. Highs watching Hoddle, Ardiles and Perryman at the Lane, lows seeing the team relegated in 1977, and a whole spectrum of successes and failures along the way – but always with the incomparable style and glory that is Spurs.

Kingley Aje


Hello! My name is Kingsley. I am the owner of writtenoffside.com among other football blogs. I have a passionate love for the beautiful game of football. A love that has been with me since I was 7 years.

Although not a good player myself, I was more into running long distance races until a negligent supposed nurse killed my athletic career with an injection that is badly injected. Although I couldn’t play football ( as I never had the skills needed ) and neither could I run, I have always been a sport man regardless. My passion for football got me writing about the beautiful game.

Blogging has given me the opportunity of expressing myself and giving others the opportunity of knowing whats happening in the world of the beautiful round leather game.

I started my first blog in 2008 ( soccerfanbase.com/blog ) and purchased writtenoffside.com from the previous owner in January 2014. On all our blogs, we try as much as possible to offer reliable transfer news articles, opinions, match reports and what have you.
