The idea for Ghostgoal largely grew out of frustration at the frame of discussion for football in the mainstream media. An obsession with refereeing decisions, injuries and endless discussion about the Big Four while tactics, the existence of the game beyond these shores and frankly all sorts of other things that get us excited about football were summarily ignored.
Thankfully, as soon as we started writing, and engaging with fellow fans through our Twitter site, we found there were like-minded folk out there happier discussing Lionel Messi than Lee Mason. Hopefully this site can be our small way of fighting back.
