Merry Christmas Eve Eve Eve everybody! We’ve began (begun? began? I never know) our busy festive period of eating and drinking and watching football, and it’s started rather well on the one hand. On the other, transporty hand, it’s not going quite so swimmingly, waking up as we have this morning to the news that [...]

Good riddance to 2010-2011!

Words, words, everywhere, and not a clue which to use. It’s the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold is not there. I was adamant at the start of the season there would be one, two, three or four. As the season progressed, I thought just the one would do. Then one stepping stone [...]

I’d hoped that, what with the season being over and all, we’d have nothing further to complain about this season. Certainly no more disappointments, except for when the only goalkeeper Wenger manages to sign is Graham Stack or Rami Shaaban.

So that’s that then. I have The Carpenters’ Goodbye to Love stuck in my head. If I was bright enough to know how to embed music into a post, I’d stick the track on for your hearing pleasure as you read.
