The Story

Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.

7

When I returned home from travelling, I looked at Palace’s next five fixtures and thought to myself, if we can possible get seven points from those games, we’ve got a good chance of staying up. Four games have gone and we’ve got ourselves twelve. I’m still not celebrating until we’re mathematically safe. Forever the pessimist.

Even though Palace have done some great business in this window, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t most excited by the Ozil signing. A player I’ve wanted to see play in the Premier League for so long now, and what makes it even better is that it won’t be for United.

Premier League

There’s always a great sense of excitement on your opening day of the season, but when it’s your opening day of the season as a Premier League club again, it’s just that little bit more special.

Even though I’ll be out the country for six months of our Premier League season, today’s fixture announcement has excited me greatly. The last time we played Spurs at home in the top flight, we beat them 3-0, so a repeat of that result would be the perfect start to the season.

That lad must have been born offside.

Fergie

I’m boycotting the internet today in fear of seeing the words ‘José’ and ‘United’ used in the same sentence. I always thought I’d celebrate the day Fergie finally decided to bow out and end his reign of incessant gum chewing and pedantic watch tapping, but seeing as it sets United up for an almighty coup de grâce to Chelsea, by hijacking the Special One’s potential move home, it could end up being a bitter sweet day on the football calendar. 

Clearing out my old house back in my hometown as mother is downsizing. I’m by no means a sentimental person but items like this remind me of better times.
