It’s a kind of magic

Ask a person on the street to name ten sports played in Ireland, and you’re unlikely to find anyone who lists Quidditch amongst their top ten.

Doping of a different kind

Arsene Wenger described the economic imbalance in European football as “financial doping”. This imbalance operates on a number of levels.
