Dulwich Hamlet vs Carlisle United, fans prepare for historic FA Cup first round tie:
This 90-second video fulfilled the mobile journalism requirement of my NCTJ diploma portfolio, and features fans of Dulwich Hamlet and Carlisle United speaking ahead of the Hamlet’s first FA Cup first round match for 21 years.
The journal article consists of 3 volumes:
- Volume 1: 2001-2007
- Volume 2: 2008-2012
- Volume 3: 2013-2019
*Volume 1: 2001-2007 is now fully published (https://simrjwright.com/2019/06/16/levy-at-spurs-a-critical-assessment)*
A heavily researched, highly detailed and unhurried opinion piece, my forthcoming journal article critcally assesses the entirety of Daniel Levy’s reign as Tottenham Hotspur chairman. A fitting inaugrual WordPress entry for myself, the piece takes both me and other Spurs fanatics down memory lane, particularly regarding playing staff. Indeed, a principal hope is that it’ll invoke sentiments along the lines of: what a player he was; as well as the odd: oh f**k I remember him, he was absolute trash!
Whilst on a more analytical level, I review his long-term ambitions, various successes and failures and, most extensively, the historic lack of contingency in regard to Levy’s managerial and player recruitment strategies. The latter a topsy-turvy journey which, since Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment in 2014 (10 years on from the true beginning of the turbulence), has stabilised markedly.
