Firstly, I would like to sincerely welcome you all to my very first blog, I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read these words.
The start of my journey is just around the corner, as in just over a week I will travel to Middlesbrough to witness their match in the FA cup 5th round at home to Oxford United. As the time draws closer the nerves and the excitement continue to build inside me almost as if they’re involved in a tussle to overtake one another. Why the build up of emotion you might ask?! Well, I have never attended a football match as a neutral before, and the challenge of remaining impartial throughout both excites me, and scares me immensely. I know there will be a number of you that yearn to know which football team I follow but that is of minimal importance, as this is all about me being neutral and that alone thrills me.
I’m looking forward to interacting with fans broad and wide, up and down the country to obtain their views on not only their own team but thoughts on football in general and the direction in which the sport is heading. It will certainly be a thought provoking process comparing the views of fans as highly as Chelsea or as lowly as Newport County. Everything I encounter whilst on my journey will be documented right here in this blog so be sure to check back for regular updates, you can also follow my Instagram page to keep up to date with my movements.
I’ll keep this first one short as I’m certain I will have plenty to discuss in the coming weeks, months and years. Once again I’d like to thank everyone for taking some time out of their day to read my blog.
