Lou Flavius, editor

Co-editor at We Are Hooligans. A huge Premier League fan, and a staunch supporter of Chelsea FC. Apart from opinionated articles, I write previews and reviews, along with general Premier League news and rumors. The best moment of my life came in the form of a certain Didier Drogba penalty. Most of my free time is spent writing and playing FIFA 15.

Ben Clarke, Staff Writer

A City fan since the age of seven (which was before the Arab money I swear), I've written about sport for about a year thus far, and can't see myself stopping any time soon. In my 10 year spell as a City fan, it's hard to choose a favourite moment...It's either that 'Aguerooooo' goal or anything Elano did (damn, that freekick against Newcastle was a piece of magic).

James Sutherland, Staff Writer

James is a Chelsea, University of Louisville, and Baltimore Orioles fan. Follow him on twitter @thepitchview

Sihan Zheng, Staff Writer

Sihan is your local friendly sabermetrics nerd and sports analyst. He specializes in statistical analysis and the business side of sports, and considers himself to be an expert on soccer and baseball.

Joe Lingley, Staff Writer

I've been a season ticket holder at my local club Leicester City for more than half my life. I'll be watching Premier League football live again this year at the King Power after an eventful ten year absence. Football is such a thrilling sport and I'd like to think we've already made our mark with that fantastic 5-3 turnaround against United. Come on you Foxes!

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
