George - Bio pic

Name: George Pacitto

Hometown: London

Team supported: Tottenham Hotspur

Footballing hero/sporting hero: Ledley King/”Fat” Ronaldo

My name’s George, and logic tells me that because I was born in Fulham I should support them. The problem is I like a bit of excitement in my life. I had a Spurs shirt stuck on me when I was 2 and never looked back, despite the turgid 14th-place finishes up until 2007.

I’m interested in football (if I haven’t made that clear) but also follow Formula 1, athletics, and Rugby Union.

Name: Jamie Connor

Hometown: Dublin

Team supported: Liverpool FC

Sporting heroes: Robbie Keane/Xabi Alonso

I have supported Liverpool ever since I can remember. Call me a football hipster if you want, but I am a proud Real Oviedo shareholder. I play Championship manager 01-02 and like most Liverpool fans, I live in the past. I have quite strong views and I love a good argument.  I write on my own football blog and tweet regularly on my Twitter @jamiec4036

By the way, this is Liverpool’s year! (Optimism keeps me sane)

Sporting Heroes: Steven Gerrard/Ronnie Whelan

Hi, my name is Kevin and I’m from Dublin, Ireland. Always supported Liverpool (I blame my Dad for the years of pain and despair). I also have a keen interest in football from across the globe. Apart from football I occasionally watch golf, tennis and boxing. If you’d like to read my personal blog the link is and to follow me on Twitter is @kev92kelly.

Name: Tom Dorsett

Hometown: Warrington

Team supported: Fulham

Sporting Heroes: Andrea Pirlo/Sean Davis/”Gentleman Jim” McGullion

To coin a phrase from a poem written for my 18th, by my good friend Ash – “From the very first day that mum and dad had ya, they raised you to be black and white like a little Fulham Badger..” and in a nutshell, that is about it when it comes to yours truly.

Fulham-mad, (part-time Carlisle United given I’m part of their media team currently) fan, with a rather large penchant for the Smiths. I’m also the author of a Fulham-related blog; and can be found on Twitter @TtotheAtotheD. Enjoy the show.

Sporting hero: Paul Scholes/Muhammad Ali.

Hi, my name is Michael Garvey, I’m 21 years old from Morecambe. My favourite football teams are Morecambe FC and Manchester United.  I’m also into Rugby, Cricket and Boxing. That’s about it really! Give me a follow on twitter @garvey_michael

Jak - Bio pic

Name: Jak Harris

Hometown: Carlisle

Team Supported: Carlisle United

Sporting Hero: David Beckham/Zinedine Zidane

I am currently in my 2nd year at UoC, starting last year following 10 months spent in America.

I have a big interest in sport and in particular football, my aim is to specialise in sports media and end up working for a footballing magazine such as FourFourTwo.

In addition to being part of the Pitchside team I will be working down at Carlisle United in their media department joining Harry and Tom who are carrying on from their work last year.


Name: Harry Barker

Hometown: The toon

Team supported: The toon army (as well as Deportivo La Coruna)

Footballing hero/sporting hero: Shola Ameobi/Djalminha/Cristiano Ronaldo/Andy Murray

The names Harry, don’t wear it out. I’m basically fanatical about football and tennis and have controversial views on both. My Sporting highlight was Sunderland getting relegated, twice…only joking. Murray winning Wimbledon has to top the list.

My favourite ever team was the Deportivo team from the early 00’s boasting names like Tristan, Djalminha, Pandiani and Valeron. I also have a family based support for West Ham United, Plymouth Argyle and Swansea City. As a Rugby Union fan my allegiance is a Welsh one thanks to my Dad.
