Return to The Front: Simon Martin

Simon MartinSenior Writer IJuly 11, 2008

It's been four months since I last wrote for Bleacher Report, and it has been far too long by far.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank a lot of people. It was a difficult time I worked in, and a difficult time I worked through. So many people helped and supported me, and I pay this tribute to them knowing I am a better person and writer for it.

So, my list starts with Zander Freund of B/R - a great inspiration, a great leader and his words of comfort and encouragement have not gone forgotten.

Next, to my friends at University - Kaylee, Nick, Alex, Erol, TJ, Talib, Dom, Ted, Jo, Tim, Edmund, Clare, Milly and Rachel - you have all been amazing friends. Thank you.

So why now? Well, I figure now is as good a time as any. It's before the start of the Championship season (the season I will be focusing on this year), and I will be picking up on my threads again - such as the greatest players and the refereeing threads.

I'm back in gear, ready for the challenge and eager to be as controversial as possible all over again!

I'm back!
