My name is Emily, I’m 31 years young and live in Manchester. This naturally means that I support Manchester City- from long before the money appeared. I’ve had a season ticket at the club for many years. I started supporting them in the 80s and have definitely paid my dues!
I’ve got a degree in Sport Journalism and have written for MirrorFootball, News of the World (remember them! Ahem), Football FanCast, King of the Kippax and FourFourTwo magazine. I’ve also worked for Nuts TV, Setanta Sports, BBC Radio Manchester and Key 103 Radio. My last media job was as Communications Assistant at Manchester City.
Other passions include drinking, travelling the world, aviation (geek) and obviously socialising. I have two blogs: www.footballpundette.blogspot.com and the much fluffier, ruder www.thisgirlielife.blogspot.com. Give them a read, you may like them.
Life heroes include Janet Street Porter, JK Rowling, Karren Brady and my mum, Glynis. Football heroes include Kevin Keegan, Roberto Mancini, Shaun Goater and Georgi Kinkladze. Will watch any football, any country, any level.
