My love for football has somewhat diminished again,well not diminished but been put on the back burners for the last year,mainly due to work and also due to me spending more time with isla,although she does enjoy coming footy with me,its more so so she can overload on sweets,fizz and burgers and generally run me ragged chasing her around the place,which ulitmately leads to me not watching as much footy as i would like.
Arsenal look to be on the up,having won the Fa Cup last season and back in the final this season and although their league form is still below par,a late run of decent form has at least seen us put pressure on leaders Chelsea who we play Sunday,although even a win would probably still leave us too much to do,barring a Chelsea collapse but you never know,at least there are signs though of competing at the top level may be a reality next season with 2-3 top signings in the summer,as for our performance in europe,apart from one pathetic game against Monaco at the emirates i believe we would now be in the semi finals ffs.
Hornchurch lost the play off final to Lowestoft last May and this season it got worse and worse and didnt get any better,despite every now and then a result giving us hope of getting out the mire,we were sadly relegated down to the Ryman one North,not the end of the world as some fans would have you believe and i for one,think it may just be what the club needs to get going again,at least we get the biggest derby in world football next year AFC Hornchurch v Romford FC the enemy!!!
As for my birding which was the main reason for starting this blog,the last year it has suffered somewhat but im starting to get back into it a bit,but hard making time with work.
spring is well underway,here are some pictures of the last few days
