I suppose I ought to start by saying that rumours of my demise are exaggerated! However, this post represents the start of me trying to throw myself back into that whole Wrexham FC thing!
Being the subject of a thread on Red Passion is a strange feeling, and an indication that I’ve not been churning out the podcasts lately. Time to explain, I think!
I’ve got one of those lovely things in the picture at the top of this post (not actual size!) It’s a polyp on my vocal chords and I’m going to have to have an operation at the end of the month to get rid of it. I am Wrexham’s Adele! (I should point out that it’s not a picture of my polyp by the way – I’m not quite THAT weird!)
Anyway, it means I’ve not been able to broadcast for a while, and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it’s knocked me back a little. However, I think it’s time to get back in the saddle and contribute to the Wrexhamosphere again, apart from the odd bit I’ve still been doing here and there. So I’m getting back to putting some energy into this blog, which I’ll be redesigning slightly in order for it to become the new website for the Supporters Association. (I knocked the old one on the head because, now we’re a fan-owned club, the official club site seemed a more appropriate venue for the podcasts, as the more content we can put on the site, and the more traffic we can push towards it the better. As a result, there wasn’t really enough content to put onto the old site to justify it standing alone.)
So, I’ll be putting more on here in future. I’d still be very happy to have other voices on here – check out the “Write for us” tab at the top of the page – and will look to broaden the blog’s purpose beyond the opinion pieces we’ve focussed on previously: I’m a big fan of Forever Betis, and like the way it gives a bit of a digest for fans who aren’t actually living in Seville, and will look to work a similar thread of centent into the blog.
I won’t be commentating again (fortunately the brilliant Alex Taylor is ensuring the commentaries go on) but I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, I’ll be boring you with my written opinion on everything!
