Welcome to Steele Sport

Steele Sport is a personal blog by Lewis Steele, sometimes featuring guest writers to cover niche topics.

Lewis is an aspiring sports journalist and an MA Journalism student at the University of Sheffield.

Steele Sport is a blog aiming to cover football in all corners — every league at every level, the aim is simple: produce insightful and engaging content for the reader to develop their knowledge on a matter of sport.

At Steele Sport, you can find regular tactical analysis pieces, which strive to dig deeper than the surface and note that what you may see with the naked eye watching at the game, or on the TV, is not necessarily the full picture. In fact, Talking Tactics sole aim is to point out things you may not have noticed, or discuss the behind-the-scenes work that has gone in to make the results on the pitch possible.

With opinion pieces, the message again, is clear: engaging. We will not write pieces along the lines of “Opinion: Mourinho needs to DROP this player!”, nor will we write opinion articles for the sake of that opinion being controversial: “Here is why X player is better than X player”.

As for match coverage, be it a review in terms of the talking points or a simple, old-school match report, the aim is: if you haven’t watched the match, come here and find out all you need to know. At the end of each match report, or preview, I will offer my verdict, because, after all, this is a blog, not a news site.

Here at Steele Sport we strive to cover as much as possible, with the limited time that is available: all big five leagues, the EFL, women’s football, youth football.

Lewis also covered the World Cup 2018 with on-the-whistle match reports and opinion pieces in a daily ‘Russia Review’ feature. As well as this, Lewis did a detailed preview of each group and wrote opinion pieces on joint-blog, Pomona Futbol, ran with journalism graduate and friend Isaac Johnson.

Steele Sport is hoping to branch out to cover other sports other than football in the near future.
