Hi, welcome to Hew Football!

As co-authors of this blog, we aim to ensure that everyone in the footballing community derives maximum enjoyment out of the sport.

In doing this, we hope to raise awareness of the issues and problems facing the sport, by providing academic analysis of the Laws of the Game, footballing decisions, and other football-related matters meriting serious discussion.

We believe that the best way to identify and resolve the core issues faced by the sport is through intense, detailed analysis of its underlying rules and policies.

As childhood friends, we believe that we can contribute in a meaningful fashion to topical debates in the footballing community – especially since one of us (Wan) has played at the best football clubs in Hong Kong for over a decade.
