Sympathy For The ECB

By |April 1st, 2020|Categories: Talking Points|37 Comments

When our former co-editor Maxie and I established this blog long ago, Maxie wrote on our 'about' page that TFT was generally 'suspicious of authority but supportive of our players'. I never imagined that ten years later, in the midst of a global pandemic, I'd write an article supporting the [...]
