Widely-respected Guardian writer Barney Ronay knows all about park football, having written the brilliant book Any Chance of a Game? after suffering for years in freezing changing rooms stuffed with psychopaths and oddballs.
Celso de Campos Jr is a São Paulo born writer and journalist. Back in 2002, he wrote his first piece for FourFourTwo - a small Brazilian Championship preview.

Damian Hall was a FourFourTwo staffer way back when the legendary Nelson Vivas was playing for Arsenal. Now a freelance journalist, he’s also contributed to Australian FourFourTwo, Champions, When Saturday Comes, The Gooner and written a very small book about The Arsenal. Not bad, he says, for someone who still types with two fingers (if he’s really in a rush). His proudest football moment is coming on as a sub for Forest Green Rovers youth team and sliding around in the mud a lot as they lost 8-0 at home to Swindon Town.
Bundesliga reporter (and left back, by trade) Daniel spends his time overlooking the river Isar out of his München apartment window, surrounded by fans of the 'Manchester United' of Germany; Bayern München. Whilst simultaneously revelling in Fabio Capello's dramatic downfall, he enjoys keeping abreast of all things Bundesliga, particularly hoping someone - anyone - can beat Bayern to the league title.
David Hall is editor of FourFourTwo magazine - you can harangue him on Twitter @FourFourTwoEd
Declan Warrington is a freelance sports journalist for The Guardian, The Observer, insidethegames and ESPN Soccernet. He cut his teeth at The Sun, and other publications he neglects to mention, and also contributes to Boxing Monthly.
The story of Ed Malyon is a sad one, when he isn't in rehab for his serious addiction to Football Manager, his heart is breaking due to a yearning for the bitter savour of a Fernet and Coke. He overcomes this sadness by watching absurd amounts of Argieball and football in general, whether it's Crystal Palace or Crvena Zvezda, he'll have an opinion. Read his blog Valderramarama or argue with him on Twitter.
Ed Wilson is a regular contributor to When Saturday Comes, mainly writing about the Championship. He is also an occasional contributor to The Gaffer website. He can be contacted on Twitter at the rather ill-advised address @NobbyNutkins.
Aged 18 and still cutting his teeth in the world of journalism, Eliot had the “pleasure” of being given an almighty David Moyes stare in his first accredited post-match press conference. Away from the English leagues, and Bury FC, he enjoys football in the former Soviet Union and edits the Slavic Football Union website as well as contributing to Goal.com, SB Nation and a number of newspapers/magazines who, for some reason, still want to hear about CSKA Moscow’s latest left-back. You can find him on Twitter @EliotRothwell.
When he's not snowed under at work unofficially helping punters make a quick buck, Emyr enjoys nothing more than making a pilgrimage to the Cardiff City Stadium to dream of life in the promised land with his beloved Bluebirds.On any given non-footballing day life for the man known (imaginatively) by friends as 'Pricey' revolves around: Good pubs (that's pubs, not bars),Yorkshire Tea, a not too healthy diet and mediocre five-a-side run-outs.Gascoigne over Pele, Springsteen over anyone, and Joey Ramone nailed it when he said "Oh New York City really has it all. Oh Yeah-eh." Correct.
Humorous but wholehearted, polished but readable, substantial but accessible, FourFourTwo is football's most insightful brand – with added F.U.N.

When not beavering away in the FourFourTwo.com engine room, News Editor Gregg Davies is invariably to be found at a smallish ground. He has been following his team around the lower leagues (and non-league) for decades. A former contributor to the Non League Today and Soccer International, Gregg has had the pleasure of chewing the fat with Martin Peters, Ruud Gullit, Marcel Desailly and Jeff Stelling.
Because you never know who might pop up
Hitesh Ratna is FourFourTwo magazine's Features Editor.
After being told by Alan Hansen in a dream to give up playing football on account of being rubbish, Huw focused on writing about the sometimes beautiful game instead. He is fiercely Welsh and a Spurs supporter, but concentrates most of his energy on internally debating whether he hates Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger more. Huw is not related to fellow FourFourTwo writer Gregg Davies, nor the marginally better footballer Simon Davies. He can, however be relied upon to regale anyone who will listen, and anyone who won't, about a goal he scored in 2004, which becomes more impressive every time (picked it up on the halfway line, took it past three players, chipped the 'keeper....)
Oh, and he reads Batman comics (hence the shirt).
