Introduction

Special Features || Tactical Analysis || Scout Reports || Ramblings || Debates || Lists || Guest Stars

When you eat, sleep and think football, starting a website just about seemed to be the natural progression. Easily outraged and passionately devoted, we find ourselves bursting with opinions most of the time.

OOTB was started on August 15th 2012 as a wordpress blog shifting to a more ‘professional’ website on New Years Eve 2012.

An ‘Outside of the Boot’ kick is a difficult technique to master, and takes a level of class & ability to execute. While none of us were able to recreate this on the football pitch, our writing and the articles published on this website will be something like that- special and classy. We will provide you the most in-depth and diverse football reading across the web.

Over the next few months we intend to expand this website much further and ensure that we provide analysis and opinions on football from all across the globe.

PS- The name “Outside of the Boot” was a random football cliche that just seemed to fit.
