André Carlisle writes some, tweets a lot and tires not to let soccer ruin his life — and he often fails at all three.

Also, like any dejected wannabe columnist in this era of digital media, he also has a newsletter called No Love in Fear — though he’s no quite sure what he’s doing with it yet. You have been warned!
