I blog when I go abroad, and occasionally when I do stuff in the UK too. There's a nicer interface over here.

Is that what we call a crowd?

7 points from 9 isn't a bad return for the last game of 2006/first two games of 2007. Yes, I'm back watching football again. A few badgering emails from the Dons Trust convinced me to head to the first, as they wanted to take a photo of me and a bunch of other recent Dons Draw winners. Duties done, piss poor weather and a dreadful first 10 minutes made me think staying away might have been a better option after all. But we ended up winning 3-1 and a mate offered me a free ticket to a game in late January -- in the Presidents' (or President's?) Lounge, no less. Then on Wednesday I went to Bromley away and saw another 3-1 victory in possibly the most unpleasant weather I've attended a game in since Barnsley away in February 1998 or so. 1-1 away at Ramsgate yesterday completed my hat trick. Fuck me what an appalling ground. Not sure I'll make 38 games on the trot (my previous record) but 4's looking a reasonable target.

"President's", I'd've thought, unless the club has more than one, which seems a bit odd.

Well, club presidents come and go. The lounge could contain photos of past presidents...

I think it's probably presidents' if it's anything like Macc which has a lot of "vice president" members - anyone can become one, it involves buying a more expensive than average season ticket, sitting in the stand, turning up in a suit and grotty tie, and standing around boring for England about old Macc glories. Oh and generally being old and rather dull. I'm sure it's not like that at AFCW....
