Best Photographs of 2014


Around this time each year I sit down and try and sort out my best 13 photographs of the year to make up my annual calendar. Not easy. This year is easier than some. These are the said photos. Each has a reason for being there and each has a story. Please feel free to share this post and this blog with your friends and colleagues.

Lewis Emmanuel ex-Brentford player jailed for armed robbery Skelmanthorpe post office


Not many Bees fans will remember him as he had a loan spell back in 2007 for 2 months. His claim to fame that I just about recall was that he ” got lost” on the M25 and missed an away game at Morecambe. Brentford manager then was the infamous Terry Butcher.

A few more folks will have heard of him today as he has been jailed for 8 years for his part in an armed robbery in Yorkshire. Together with an accomplice they entered the post office masked and ordered customers to lay down on the floor including a 3 year old girl with her mother and grandmother.  Essentially held up a post office with a fake firearm. The end of a football career for him. He clearly had good talent at some stage as he played for many decent league 1 and occasional championship teams, but spent most of his career in and out of Luton town.

The story is an unhappy one as reported of a player clearly with talent who went the wrong way. His defence counsel said some of the biggest losers in all this will be his 3 children aged 10, 5 and 4 years.
