You have done such a great job with your articles on this site. I have read several of them and they are all good. You have some great insight. depuy recall
How often would pieces have to be written? I wouldn't want to commit myself to something not knowing whether I could devote enoug time to it.
On a different topic, what do you think of Newcastle's season so far? I thought they would struggle, but I can't see them not going up now. I'm not so optimistic about West Brom. We are so inconsistent.
Hey Patrick, thanks a bunch for the kind words. Where are you going to be coaching? That sounds pretty exciting, and I must admit, I'm a little jealous! It's a dream of mine to one day coach a high school team and get them playing Wenger-ball.
Hi then, hello again! This is a celebration of the Bleachers on my milestone article. Hope you have a chance to give a look.
All the best!
My heartwarming st....never mind.
You've got email
I am stunned the US has made it through to the next round. Playing Spain and their historic streak - gee what a bonus 8^O
I have a freshly minted article looking at the Dodger/Angel series of the weekend. Hope you have a chance to check it out.
Cheers Patrick, I certainly count you as someone who knows what they're talking about. Stadiums can be a little coarse but I'd much rather be at Goodison than a gentrified stadium like the Emirates. The only way to clean up football support is to take it away from the working classes which the clubs and the FA would probably like. I like the tribalism in English Football. I think it harks back to municipal pride of Victorian Times. People in England Love their cities and nowhere more so than the north where the wealth and technology generated made Britain powerful (something southerners like to pretend didn't happen).
Ha ha. I won't be going to any barrios in the near future. I just found out my girlfriends pregnant about a week ago so I've firmly had my wings clipped for the next couple of years!
Bit of trivia you might already know about Goodison. It was the venue of Garrincha and Pele's last competitive game together.
For your consideration, a slide show from Dodger/Phillie game on June 6th:
Thanks for your kind words Patrick. I like to think of myself as a five tool player when it comes to sporting appreciation.
Witnessing a season of Rinus Michels leading and Johan Cruyff playing for the LA Aztecs gave me a deeper appreciation of the meshing of the boys on the pitch.
