Guilty, I support Reading.
One of my earliest memories is my dad saying to me;
“Never back 0-0. Always back no goalscorer, because if it’s an own goal, the bookies still pay out.”
What I mean to say is that since I was young, football has been a massive part of my life, initially watching Reading and playing for local teams. Now I coach at grassroots level and I love every second of it.
Too often in football, particularly in the media, we are subjected to negativity. We always hear about players doing the wrong things and we don’t often enough hear the good things.
That’s why I decided to start this blog. I want to bring the joy back to football. It is, after all, the reason we all fell in love with the game.
