Snaps ahoy and the vibe this week comes from Chemnitzer FC's home game against Kickers Offenbach which was played in late April.
“My most recent and challenging project has been a book on grassroots football entitled AMEN. 15,000km through ten countries in Southern Africa and West Africa. AMEN remains true to finding beauty and joy where others may only see deprivation. AMEN above all else, captures the strength of the human spirit.”
Our man Danny Last took in the sights and sounds of Dynamo Dresden v Energie Cottbus at the Glücksgas Stadion recently.
David Bauckham loves the FA Vase. He put in a 600-mile round trip from East Sussex to County Durham to capture the magic surrounding Shildon AFC's semi-final second leg with Tunbridge Wells which ended with the visitors booking a Wembley date for the Final in May.
Many will have read about IBWM editor Danny Last's travels around Europe and beyond in search of football, but few will know about his other obsession - Ultra and fan graffiti.
Noted, again, for events off the pitch rather than those on, the Rome derby took place last weekend and our man in Rome, Adam Lloyd, was there once again with camera in hand.
Over the last twelve months, Gabriel Uchida has emerged, to our minds at least, as one of the best football photographers operating anywhere right now.

It’s always a pleasure to feature an artist that we’ve enjoyed watching soar over the last three years, and that’s exactly what Sligo based Dan Leydon has done.
During 2012 the final chapters of my homage to the Råsunda Fotbollstadion was written. On the 22 November the stadium’s main tenants, Swedish league team AIK Stockholm, said farewell to their home of 75 years with a Europa League tie against Napoli; a game that showed almost every spectra of the game we love, including a last-minute goal which meant AIK lost 2-1.
Adopting a style very similar to the UK's own resident photographic genius Stuart Roy Clarke, Belgium's Jurgen Vantomme finds the beauty of faded glory in the small and mediocre clubs of his homeland.
A player in football who leads attacks or brings other players on the same side into a position from which they could score.
“It isn't always your choice of camera, but the photographers eye, that counts” so the Guardian Camera Club state in an effort to make those of us who don't much fancy splashing out an arm and two legs on multiple lenses feel better about themselves.
Please be upstanding as we roll out the red carpet for Hampshire's finest, Paul Paxford.
