Video: Soccer Honours Its Greatest Star

Earlier this month British Pathe announced that 85,000 videos from its archive were now available on YouTube. Given that the company covered football for many years, we’re hoping that there are a few hidden gems in there to be discovered over the next few months.

John Bull


A life-long Arsenal fan, John Bull can often be found watching (and talking about) the highs and lows of life at the Emirates. For Bull there is also life beyond the Premier League, however, and when Saturday comes you are just as likely to find him with a cup of tea and pie in the stands at Leyton Orient, where he is a season ticket holder.
