Broadband was switched on in my house this week, despite a letter from Sky confirming my switch on date as August 22. The letter was headed 'It Just Keeps Getting Better.' It didn't. It also explains the rather irregular posting here, which I hope will now improve.
Anyway, my return to the UK has brought a refreshed love of football. Now I can have an opinion on people like Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andriy Voronin with greater conviction, now that games are kicking off at 3 and 4pm rather than midnight.
Great piece from Lawrence Donegan in The Guardian yesterday. This guy took a year off work to become a caddy for a journeyman golfer on the European Tour, in order to write the excellent Four Iron In The Soul. That was after doing something with some shitty 80s band - the Flying Pickets or someone.
Anyway - he made a good point. People who are responsible for talking to the media at the top of our sports think that all readers of back pages are stupid. Kenyon, Avram Grant, Brian Ashton, Ron Dennis etc. Worth a read....
