Here at FourthOfficial.com, you won’t find your regular statistical detail, neither will you want your customary injury updates. What you will definitively find is the truth, completely unfiltered, presented to you by raw and opinionated threads that are weaved together into a collection of words. Transparency is the over-arching principle of the portal and we operate on this very trajectory with a plethora of sports, including Football, Motorsports, Tennis and even Basketball. Equipped with a fine mix of renowned Malaysian journalists and a select number of highly acclaimed international sports writers, FourthOfficial.com is definitely the place to come for the absolute truth. Football will be the primary focus for the time being, while the presence of other sports will slowly grow within the site as we move forward. Within the football team, we’ve got vast array of writing arsenal, with everyone of them coming from a unique background within the sports media industry. Moreover, we’ve also secured the services of world famous journalists in the form of Uli Hesse, James Eastham and Paolo Bandini.
Our articles will offer unique perspectives that aren’t available anywhere else. Generic news is already available in plenty of other websites, so what we do at FourthOfficial.com is take a deeper look into every situation that exists in the sporting world, and go deeper into it. The deeper we go, the more truth we uncover. We don’t beat around the bush and we certainly don’t advocate horseplay. The only thing we do with sports, is call it as it is.
