Technically it’s actually Tuesday morning, so the Monday Night Link-Up is running a bit late. But to make up for it, here are two interesting links instead of one. Firstly, an unusual article by Elliot Tucker for The Run Of Play. This is not the first time I’ve linked to a Tucker article, a few weeks back I was equally amazed by his brilliant description of Dirk Kuyt. This time, the subject under the spotlight is Argentinean football. While I don’t know nearly as much about Argentinean football as I do about Dirk Kuyt, this article is further evidence that Tucker is able to write about football in a way that I’ve never even seen before. I actually prefer the Kuyt article, but this one is still worth a read, so please do:

And secondly, Raith Rovers were recently crowned champions of the Scottish 2nd Division. Hailing as I do from Fife, I used to go to quite a few Raith games as a kid, so I’m always happy to see them do well. But although it’s probably not huge news for the football community, it was for a certain significant UK figure, none other than the Prime Minister himself. Gordon Brown is also a Fifer, and a keen Raith fan. His article on their return to successful ways is well worth a read:
