Young Guns - 8/10
(Nice artwork and looks to be a good story)
On the Bench - 10/10
(Some lovely artwork by Nick Brennan and a strong, funny storyline makes this comic strip one of the best!)
Football Mad Dad - 8/10
(Not too funny but some nice artwork all the same)
Acer & Kaos - 6/10
(What on earth was this about, two chavs who play football, probably one of the worst in the comic. The 'slang' is awful and doesn't work and choosing Comic Sans as the font was not a wise move, no offence Karl, you're a great artist and a great guy, but I've seen better stuff by you...)
It's a Funny Ol' Game - 9/10
(Don't like the look of the footballer/main character in this strip but I imagine this was deliberate, however on the whole this strip was good, funny, nice artwork by Karl as well.)
Pele the Parrot - 5/10
(Oh dear, worse than 'Acer and Kaos', why? Because of all the puns! The artwork itself wasn't bad, certainly not good either but not bad, but the puns ruined this strip... WHY SO MANY PUNS?!)
The Fanshaws - 9/10
(I like it a lot, sure the artwork isn't fantastic, but this strip feels classic, good fun and entertaining)
Captain Soccer - 6/10
(Bad artwork, bad storyline, not good.)
Junior Ref Julie - 10/10
(I love this strip, it feels classic, it's funny and the artwork is AMAZING!)
50,000 Years F.C. - 9/10
(Nice artwork and funny gags, a good page!)
One Day... - 2/10
(What the what?! What on earth is this ABOUT?! I didn't get this so it sucked.)
Team Europa 2501!! - 10/10
(The artwork is fantastic, really interesting storyline as well. Very promising!)
Ask the Ref - 10/10
(Ha ha! I love Ref Jokes, always make me laugh!)
You're not Singing Anymore - 5/10
(The artwork is ugly, the storyline is boring. Not good.)
