The Grip Of His Hand is a short film about fathers, sons and football by my friend Paul (a regular contributor to Bleacher Report and one of the Man Utd fans behind United Rant), and it's really rather lovely.

I haven't yet taken Stanley to St James' Park, as his attention span is still somewhat short and his desire to sit in one place for any length of time somewhat non-existent. It'll happen at some point, though, and when it does, I'm sure it'll be emotional. Thus far, we've managed Abingdon Utd a few times, and he's derived more enjoyment from dashing about in the stand and on the touchline and (on one occasion, when he was less than a year and a half old) snacking on some berries from a bush that thankfully didn't cause any ill effects...
