Welcome to the new home of Dirty Tackle

(Louise Turnbull)

Longtime DT readers are surely used to sudden changes with the site, but for those who are newer to the fold, take a deep breath and believe me when I say that something wonderful has just happened.

After parting ways with Yahoo Sports in late 2014, DT returned to its original form as an independent WordPress site (albeit with a less visually shocking design).

This is what DT looked like in 2009! Seriously!

The WordPress site was always just a temporary stopover on the path to the next major iteration of Dirty Tackle and in partnering with Howler and doing it here on Medium, we have found that next major iteration. And I couldn’t be happier.

For the last two years, George and I have been working towards this with the dream of building a unique and diverse hub of independent football coverage. Establishing this new home for both Dirty Tackle and Howler Magazine is the first step towards doing that.

The last two years worth of DT archives are all here and going forward it will be business as usual, just as it was after our previous moves. So, yeah, welcome to DT version 4.0. Please spread the word as far and wide as you can.

Thank you for your continued support of football nonsense.
