New satirical football site from one of our own

If CaughtOffside isn’t silly enough for you, our good friend and former COS writer Josh Widdicombe has just kicked off his own website, The Gaffer. It’s a rather amusing piss-take of the world of football and we’re wishing him luck, although after getting a sneak preview of the site we doubt he will need it.

Founded after a chat Josh had with some mates about how there is no purely fictional site mocking football like The Onion mocks US news and sport, The Gaffer is already getting quite a bit of attention on messageboards and counts Danny Baker among its fans.

To get started, read about the new Euro 2008 yellow card moving too much in the air, the permanant black armband on the new Liverpool kit and how Gareth Barry has sold out in the news section.

They’ve also got some solid parodies of the player/ex-player diaries on the BBC and others, with Kevin Nolan, Agony Uncle Gary Mabbutt and a special England Euro 2008 wallchart.

So do check it out if you get a minute.
