Alright, so here’s the deal. There are Sports blogs, and there are football blogs. There are also innumerable club-specific blogs. All of which brings us to this – an idea that, like most others, came about when half asleep at the desk staring into an Excel Spreadsheet at 75% zoom. What this one aims to do, is to provide a common forum for what is easily the largest aggregated fan-base in the BPL. Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. They are known as and are instantly recognizable as simply The Big Four.
The plan is to simply do what we have been doing for years now. Discuss and dissect every bit of news these four clubs generate. Transfers, match days, bar brawls, red cards, goals, injuries, – pretty much everything. Oh, and WAGs! Except, we thought rather than discuss it just amongst ourselves it would be so much more intriguing to talk to the millions of other fanatics in the world over the realm of cyberspace. I mean we’ve never been in an e-fight (the first rule is you will not break your keyboard).
So give us ten minutes of your time each day. Comment, vote, opine, pick a fight or just go crazy. As we say, there is only one big four and all others are pretenders.
1. What’s with the ‘za’ at the end of the name?
A. To understand this, you need to go back to long long ago, when there was Ferrari and Michael Schumacher. Lot of us who watched football back then, would inevitably have watched Formula 1 as well. And remember the chants of ‘Forza Ferrari’ in those good old days. We just thought we’d prefix ‘big’ to that, and remove the ‘Ferrari’ of course. A lot has happened since, of course – Kimi joined Ferrari and a lot of McLaren fans went “Riiight, do we go with the driver, or the team now?” F1 is just not what it used to be!
2. So why did Kimi join Ferrari?
A. Irrelevant. But if you still need an answer – to get to the other side.
3. What if I absolutely do not agree with what you write?
A. That’s the point.
4. But I already read espnstar.com and premierleague.com and all that.
A. That’s ok. So do we. But how many of them can really understand the pleasure of catching all those Chelsea-Barcelona games at 2 in the morning with the ‘B’ slot end semester on the next day. Or the midweek United-Arsenal fixtures with a team meeting at 9 AM the next morning. They really can’t. We can. We feel you.
5. Where’s the mandatory inspirational quote that will drive this blog?
A. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. If you are using this in your speech, please don’t quote us as the source. Also, A journey across England, or atleast 19 journeys across England every season, starts with a single step-over. This, you can quote us on.
6. This is so pointless, why is there even an FAQ section?
A. As Barack said, Because we Can!
