It’s not yet New Year’s Eve but we’re up and off early in the morning to catch the New Year’s festivities way out west. This, then, is just a brief one to say farewell to the old hag of a year that has a day and a bit left to go as the world and its spouse starts to turn its attention to the unsullied and promise-laden new one that’s about to be born at midnight tomorrow.
Personally – and not just for football reasons either – I’ll be more than glad to wave goodbye to 2014, a year that I can’t in truth say that I’ll look back on fondly. From a football perspective there’s nothing to add at this stage to all that’s been said already and nothing to be gained from another bout of hand-wringing about what might have been. So instead I’ll confine myself to directing a simple hasta la vista in the direction of the soon-to-be-gone old year while hoping for better things, in so many ways, in 2015.
In terms of logistics over the next few days, I don’t plan to be online much (if at all) between now and Sunday so the first post of the new year will probably be a brief report on our opening FBD match which, in case you need reminding, takes place on Sunday afternoon. Football action to talk about again? That, at least, should make for a positive start to 2015.
Happy New Year all.
