Touchline Views is a football blog which aims to cover the various aspects and facets of the beautiful game. The blog was originally founded in July 2009 as part of the now defunct twofootedtackle blog network but has been running by itself as a separate entity since July 2010.

We are always open to guest bloggers and new ideas. Feel free to pitch those ideas to myself via Twitter (@walsh_i) or leave a comment below.

  1. Ahoy there Ian,

    Love your blog! My name is Jon and I work for Absolute Radio. I hope you don’t mind me getting in touch, but I wanted to discuss an opportunity for Touchline Views which we’ve got coming up during the Euros. Anyway, see what you think…

    What would you say if I wanted to give you some free guaranteed coverage (with a link!) on the Absolute Radio website, maybe some retweets from Ian Wright’s Twitter (401,000 followers!), and the possibility of briefly talking on Ian Wright’s ‘Rock and Roll Football’?

    We’re doing something special for Euro 2012, and we’d love it if you could be involved Ian.

    If this sounds like something that would interest you – give us an email back and let me know when you’d like to talk. We’d love to talk on the phone if at all possible.

    Best wishes,

    Jon Buchan
