Ben McAleer
A die-hard Spurs fan, Ben has been around football since the famous days of Neil Maddison, Phil Stamp and Ronny Rosenthal.

Matt Quinn
Blogger of the year in 2009. Since then I've been in the rather unforunate position of working on a market stall selling multi coloured sparkling socks. You're more likely to find me appearing on Dragons Den than Dexys Den in the near future.
Mike Moore
As the official lower-league reporter here at Dexy's Den, I like to look further down the league standings to a place where football isn't all egos and multi-million pound endorsement deals. It's just more fun and more enjoyable!
William Abbs
Aspiring football writer, perspiring sales assistant.
Marc Sibbons
Recent graduate of BA Hons Journalism, Marc loves football like his own family. A passionate Spurs supporter who also enjoys travelling, a good ol' pint down the boozer and PS3 with the lads.

Gossip Gordon
Geeky Gossip Gordon is the man-boy charged with outing the next big transfer transfer rumours on Dexy's Den. His blogs tend to be light-hearted but don't let that fool you - in just three months he's already managed to upset an army of Nigerians, a Leicester City manager look-a-like and probably anyone who watched The One Show. When not engaging in this frivolity, GG spends his days writing for a techie magazine and picking his nose. He has freelanced for Four Four Two, Calcio Italia and a load of other publications you've never heard of.
Keith O'Connell

Michael Wade
Freelance journalist and talkSPORT webmonkey Michael Wade is a dribbling simpleton, a Reading fan and an unashamed lover of the lower leagues in that order. As such the inner machinations of top-flight football puzzle him - this is demonstrable by his claims that Mick McCarthy, Tony Pulis and Sam Allardyce are misunderstood football geniuses who play the game the right way. He aspires to appear on the Sunday Supplement alongside Messrs Custis and Woolnough and has thrown his weight behind ‘Arry Redknapp to be the next England boss. He also thinks there are too many foreigners in the Premier League.

I'm a 22 year old University graduate in Sports Journalism. From Hemel Hempstead, I'm a geographically striken Newcastle United fan thanks to my family ties. I tend to think I was tricked into supporting the mags' when Shearer, Ginola, Ferdinand, Asprilla and so on made us title contenders. Those pro's toyed with my football naivete, and shame on them. I play semi-professional myself when I'm not nursing and injury, which is always. I love to read and write, I've always been a fan of Henry Winter too, his articles in the Telegraph will rarely let you down. I do have my own blog ( but now look forward to adding some of my views to Dexy's Den!

I need a passport to enter the UK, but if you think I cannot speak about football (or any sport) with intelligence, then I'd love to debate issues with you. Canadians know more than just hockey. @acrossthepond8

It's hard to be an Arsenal fan these days, but if it can teach you something, it will be toughness. I'm just a guy who likes to write, supports Arsenal, and loves football. Going to Brunel in September to study journalism.

I'm a 24-year-old BA Journalism Graduate attempting to call himself a journalist, though I'm not quite there yet... I'm a Man Utd fan, so I probably won't be making many friends on here, though I like to think I am far less biased than the majority of United fans that people love to hate. I'm a huge computer game fan too which is my main writing specialty. I might be utter turd at actually playing football, but I will more than likely whoop you on Fifa. Add me if you like (PS3) Kezwar, and follow me on Twitter, @Kezwar

As you will able to tell from my blog I am a passionate fan who will always be there every week to give my support to my team, win or lose (mainly lose). I have played football all my life, been a FA Referee and managed a university football team for two years.
