Eight Years Later

Eight Years Later

As it does, Facebook sent me an anniversary reminder and today it was to say that eight years ago today I cycled to the last of the 92 clubs. It was West Ham United at their old ground, Upton Park. It made me look back over the years and I took stock. I am delighted to say that I am still in touch with many of the people who made that trip possible. I also have to spare a thought for some who have gone to the Great Stadium in the sky. Thanks to all of you.

Some things never change. I am still as crazy about football as ever. This week I was at Norwegian level 3 and Norwegian level 4 games in Oslo. Gillingham go from bad to worse and I can see this season being a “challenge” ….. as most have been since 1965 when I first watched them. Manchester United, CD Torrevieja and Real Madrid have all dropped points this week and now it’s time to look forward to some exciting games as United travel to West Ham at their new London Stadium, Real Madrid have to bounce back from a 3-0 thumping in the big Madrid derby and Gillingham will hope to get something from the long trip to Shrewsbury.

Whatever happens, I will enjoy the weekend and I hope that you will too.
