About me, about the blog

My name’s Martyn, and I’m a newspaper reporter based in the UK. In my spare time, I catch as much German football as I can. So, here at Defensive Midfielder, you’ll find tactical reports for 1. Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga matches.

Football writing-wise, I’ve written features for When Saturday Comes, In Bed With Maradona, and The 72. I was also lucky enough to feature alongside 99 other superb football bloggers in The Guardian’s ‘100 to follow in 2011’ list.

To get in touch, please just leave a comment. All comments have to be moderated before they go live, so if it’s something you’d rather keep private, your message won’t be posted for all to see.

If you like what you see, you can also follow me on Twitter.

Enjoy the site!
