About ‘Izzett’

  Not your average football blog…


..nevertheless, if Manchester City is your team you might find a home among the denizens of Izzett, a sparky, quirky bunch of Renaissance people who are prepared to discourse on and debate such topics as ‘Is there life after death?’, ‘Where’s the best food to be found near any football ground?’, ‘Why extreme potholing is only for wimps’, ‘Did Virgil Tracy sleep with Lady Penelope?’, etc, etc whenever there’s a quiet day on the ‘News Now..’ front. If you find all this heavy intellectual stuff a bit daunting, you can just browse. 

Here’s a quick site tour
