The Cutter would like to wish its readers a very merry Christmas and offer a sincere thank you for everyone who has read our witterings and interacted with us on Twitter these past twelve months.

We’ve fought some worthy fights, published content we’ve extremely proud of, and been fortunate enough to interview a wide range of people from the football world and beyond.

We’ve got some exciting plans for 2016 – and particularly the weeks ahead – but that’s for another day. For now godspeed and we hope your team triumphs on Boxing Day to complete the perfect Christmas.

The Cutter is closing up shop until the 27th to get stupidly drunk, eat far too many mince pies, and watch several Bond films.

There are however a plethora of ace articles and features to enjoy from our archives in the meantime.
