As Andy from Scotzine told me the other day it seems I have been “pimping” myself out this week. I thought I would put a little collection of links together in case any wandering visitors want to look at some articles.

The first article was done for the superb website The 72 Football in his continuing series of looking at different nations lower leagues, being a big fan of France’s Ligue 1 football I took it upon myself to delve in the deepest depths of the France football system. Hopefully you’ll find what I put together rather interesting.

My next piece was written for SpanishFootball.info in collaboration with David Cartlidge. With Spanish side Valencia CF moving to sign Adil Rami of Lille, David contacted me and asked, with me being a huge Lille and French football fan, would I write a piece about Adil with his strengths and weaknesses. I duly obiligied.

Next on the list was my weekly SPL column for the wonderful World Football Columns. After a short winter break I put a piece together detailing the week’s events in Scotland but also having a look at the current league reconstruction talks that have been taking place. So If you want a little Scottish update, why not have a look. It’s also a great site.

Another piece I wrote this week but has yet to be published is for the superb 1st Eleven. A number of writers were asked to put forward their Team of the Year, before the gala event UEFA will put on to announce theirs. I have been informed at shall be up soon. Keep your eyes peeled.

The offers of work are flooding in (not) but I will be keeping myself busy with the Asian Cup, little reviews each day from that. And maybe a historic Lille piece that I have in mind.

Oh and the podcast.

This week saw my debut post on the very popular website In Bed With Maradona, a collection of some of the best football bloggers out there, very honoured to be part of the site, I will be contributing a piece every month, and look forward to scouring the depths of World Football for interesting stories.

Please have a look at my first contribution featuring the Ukrainian striker Vasiliy Sachko, on a scoring streak with FC Vorskla.

Hope you enjoy the piece, let me know what you think?
