To be honest I’m a bit underwhelmed by the home and away kits for this season.. It’s great Spurs and Under Armour are honouring the 10th anniversary of Bill Nic’s passing through the shirts, but I won’t be rushing out to buy either this year (I really dislike that collar on the home kit). In the end that’s just personal preference though, and who cares really, as long as we honour Bill Nic through the football on the pitch that is all that really matters. Roll on the start of the preseason games tonight and the season not long after that!
I’ve been keeping one eye on The Open during work these last two days as it’s easily my favourite golf tournament to watch. It’s good to see some low scores but great that the wind and weather is starting to play it’s part to make it a true links golf experience. Can’t wait to see if McIlroy can stay strong over the weekend or who, if anybody, can put a good run together to challenge.
Finally finished both of the books I bought for my holiday that was about two months ago now (for only a week long holiday, I knew I was being ambitious). But in the end it doesn’t matter how long it took me because both are brilliant reads on two footballing greats.
15 years ago today this album came out. I can’t remember how old I was when I first heard it, but it was the first album I remember buying myself as all my friends had as well, and this is track one that had me hooked on this band from first listen. It opened my mind up to new music, genres and bands, inspired me to learn drums and play in bands, and for that reason it will be always be one of my favourites.
The Album Leaf performing ”Window” and a new Untitled track from a forthcoming untitled album (due out in 2015). I know it’s a long way out but I can’t wait to hear more new music from Jimmy. The Album Leaf’s show a few years back at Thekla in Bristol is still one of my favourite gigs I’ve ever been to.
