THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

On Friday August 5 Philosophy Football are hosting an eve-of-season party. Expect to be entertained and inspired in equal measure. Headlined by the brilliant comedy and biting commentary of Mark Steel, with poetry from the legendary Attila the Stockbroker. Opening the show is one of the hottest names in spoken word, Skint & Demoralised, while 2 Tone legend Rhoda Dakar will be filling the dancefloor late into the night with a DJ set.

The evening opens with a roundtable discussion "Football, Finances and Own Goals". Panorama's Andrew Jennings talks about his investigations into FIFA corruption; Kris Stewart, one of the founders of the club and their first chief executive, recounts the AFC Wimbledon story; football academic and co-author of The Football Nation John Williams offers a critique of the Premier League monster; and Aditya Chakrabortty, economics writer on the Guardian, makes the case for a "Rooney Tax".

The event is presented in association with the PCS trade union and WSC at the recently refurbished theatre-pub the New Red Lion, 271 City Road, London EC1V 4LA. Nearest Tube Angel. Show starts 7pm.
