Hi there, I am Scott Johnston (Third from left, top row). TheFootyBlog.net has been around since late 2009. In its original form the blog would have a lot of written content about all things football. Now its main use is to show off original filming content by my production company Full Time Films.

I will add some more written articles but that will be based on the media and on how to film sports related content.

Now a bit about me. I’m 29 years old and I love football, although I have been known to moan about it from time to time (nearly all the time). I have always been interested in all aspects of the game from coaching to the stadiums and from memorabilia to the media coverage of the game. I have been in production for more than five years now and wanted to combine my two loves.

Our Stirling Albion Blogumentary which was featured on the Guardian website. You can view our very own TV Channel HERE. A few of my other videos have been kindly recommended by STV Sport.

I am very proud to have had the Guardian put this blog in their ‘Our favourite things this week’ on various occasions. As far as I am aware I am the only blog to be recognised for a written article, a video and a podcast.

You can email me at scott@thefootyblog.net with any information you wish from me.

I was also a regular contributor to the GibFootballShow Podcast, I had a weekly a column for World Football Columns plus have made contributions for The Scottish Football Blog, Scottish Football ForumsFrench Football WeeklyScotzine and Singaporean website Just Sports.

I used to produce and co-host ‘TheFootypod‘ with American Brent Atema where we had various guests each time. Some guests have included ESPN’s Derek Rae and Janusz Michalik, US World Cup legend Alexi Lalas and Zonal Marking editor Michael Cox.  We were voted one of the top ten podcasts by Aussie website The Diagonal Run. You can still find old ‘TheFootyPod’ episodes on iTunes.

You may have heard me on the American radio station World Football Daily and I have had work published by STV. I have also featured on Sports Tonight Live usually talking about Scottish Football. I’ve been a guest on BBC 5 Live‘s BBC Booted show with Mark Chapman and European football writer Andy Brassell. Plus my comments were featured on Norwegian news site Dagbladet.

May I take this chance to thank you for visiting my blog and hope you visit regularly from now on, it should be updated many times during the week. I’m also on twitter and you can follow me @Thefootyblognet.

We are now on Facebook.

You can also leave any general comments on this page.

TheFootyBlog.net was voted by the public as the best Scottish Football website in 2010 and was nominated for the Best Scottish Football blog in 2011.

Thanks for reading.

Scott Johnston

  6. Hiya,

    1. The Website has been up and running for just over 3 weeks now.

    2. No match reports as I am only one guy and haven’t enough time to do match reports. I am planning on going to certain games and covering different aspects of them.
