On July 7th 2018, Taste of Football was born. The creation of this blog was driven by our passion and love for the beautiful game. We believe in producing content that is readable, informative, relevant and most importantly meeting the standard of quality that the reader demands.

From in-depth opinion articles to the latest transfer news, our website displays a wide range of content that appeals to a large audience for the world’s most popular sport.

Alfie Ashton (@AlfieAshton10)

Alfie Ashton is an 18 year-old student, currently taking a gap year.

You’d have to travel many a mile to find a more deluded football fan than this fella. Forest through and through, Alfie loves to contribute with a piece of writing once a month or so.

His passion as an avid football follower seeps into his work and his knowledge of the Football League certainly comes in handy. He is a loved member of the team, even if he only contributes once a decade.

This football-writing phenomenon may churn out articles at the speed of an F1 Mclaren, but there is no doubt that when I go through one of his works of art, that the man knows his stuff. He has told me that he doesn’t actually support a team but just has a passion for the game (He will convert to Notts County, you have my word).

You can see this passion all through his writing even with his sophisticated style. How he is able to rave about niches that the average Joe wouldn’t bat an eye at is beyond me. He is eloquent and knows how to tell a story. Karan can simply be described as the true cornerstone of our growth as a blog and we are all extremely happy about the work he puts in.

Ah, Mr Detail. Football Manager genius. Give him the job of managing Parma and he’ll tell you everything down to what toilet paper they use within minutes of signing.

There’s no doubt that Indy could easily do a job in the football writing world. His mesmerising way with words may have occasionally got lost whilst we had a minute audience, but now I am happy to say that his fantastic work is being rightfully seen. An invaluable member of the five-man team that makes up Taste Of Football, and we can all just hope that he doesn’t ditch us for the gym.

Please can someone tell me how this man gets views? He could write an article on sawdust and one hundred people would read it. This life-long Notts County fan has an incredibly pure love for the English game. It is as if his mind has been delicately placed onto a website and that is what is so great about his articles. The raw, colloquial way in which he conducts his words and feelings over a player/team give his posts a unique quality, something we love.

It’s inevitable that at some point he’s going to write an article that literally no one reads. Heck, he pushes the boundaries (Who the bloody hell is Ben Heneghan!?). It doesn’t matter though as everyone who is lucky enough to stumble upon Sam’s greatness will enjoy what they find.

The ‘Creator’ of Taste Of Football. These boys have been with me since day one, and are the main reason I am still doing this.

A Notts County fan since I skipped the Champions League for a Tuesday night v Crawley Town and I have to say I’ve been glued to Meadow Lane ever since. The72 threw me away like I was Civard Sprockel after Mansfield at home, but I have come back stronger (Unlike Civard), writing better articles and making the decision to go on my own adventure.

It’s all down to the boys who help me write the articles, who DM the twitter accounts, begging for them to share our work (Karan, mainly Karan). These guys are the reason why we are growing as a football blog that started in July 2018 and as of August 2019 has over 220,000 site views. Needless to say, I am proud.

Special mentions:

Michael Pawluk (@steezvy) 

What else is there to say other than he is such a talented individual. Michael is the man behind the aesthetics of Taste of Football, a crucial aspect of our blog’s success. The interface of the website, the Twitter banner and some of the featured images are just a few examples of what Mikey has done for the blog. None of us can match his artistic ability.

If anything catches your eye on the website for how good it looks, it’s definitely Michael’s doing. Without him, we’d have a Twitter banner made on PowerPoint…

Sam Fortescue (@samfortz) and Alex Nolan (@Alexnolan00)

These two passionate football fans, even though they’re not officially part of the team, have been supporting the blog pretty much since the beginning. Not only are they always liking and reading the posts (even if no one else wants to), they are supplying the best ideas for articles at the right time.

We’re genuinely grateful for their generous contributions to the site and are certainly a part of the blog’s success.
