Well 2015 is coming to an end and on a personal and football footing I cant say I am sad.

On a personal note and in a lifetime of bad years 2015 goes down as one of the worst in so many ways, a few highs but oh so many lows that it brought me to tears of desperation on more than one occasion.

And then in June Annette and I moved in together and the world really turned against us giving us 6 months of pure hell, well 4 months is more accurate.

We stood strong and wondered if it would ever end but guess what, it did.

2016 sees us move into our new home and everything's going right, decorator finished yesterday, carpets go down on the 8th and we join them on the 12th. I have lost over 2 stone and I even won two bottles of wine in the free draw on the bus last night.

On a personal note 2016 I know will be a great year.

Football, well sitting 7 points adrift at the wrong end of the table is hardly encouraging and 2015 saw our usual dodgy buys and annual change of manager, not the best of years but, not unlike my personal life I enter 2016 with hope. Will we stay up, no idea but in Sam I believe we have the right man to rebuild us and stop the rot and I certainly don't share the he will walk view.

So a good start will be to kick 2016 off with 3 points, that at least will be a good start and I will worry about the end at a later date.

Good luck to every single one of you who reads this, I wish you luck. I pray for good or improved health for you and your family, I know many have their concerns, won't name names but you know who you are.

Above all I wish you peace of mind, something hard to achieve but wonderful when it is and of course a contented 2016.

Football will be what it is, not life and death for me more an enjoyable few hours out with good people and some good friends, I try not to let the team spoil that.

Yes, it's certainly a character builder being a Sunderland supporter but regardless of our passions, it is only a game of football after all and there are many more important issues in life.

2015 has seen some awful events across the globe that have made us all aware of our fragility, but I know we shall enter 2016 in  the same indominable spirit as ever.

Happy New Year to all and I hope you enjoy good health and lots of happiness in the next 12 months.

That's Life!!

A roller coaster of positives and negatives that always sets us and our emotions many a challenge. 2015 has been no different, though maybe one or two more challenges than I would want.

I am sure that 2016 will be the same and fortunately we don't know what lies ahead. I hope that all of our Sundermad friends and their families have a happy and healthy New Year.

Hope to see you soon to celebrate another great escape!!!

cheers

Just as in 2015, in 2016 we will all face challenges in our personal lives, and witness natural and man made tragedies in the wider world that remind us. if we needed reminding, how precious life is, and how it should be treasured.

Football is a diversion really but, my view of SAFC's current predicament is that there is always hope until it is mathematically impossible for us to be saved. We have been here before and survived, so the club needs to hold their nerve, be positive and look forward, as do our supporters.

Paraphrasing JFK's famous Moon speech "We choose to support SAFC not because it is easy, but because it is hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win ..."  Very Happy

Happy New Year my dear friends. Hoping and wishing that 2016 brings health, wealth and much happiness to you and yours, and a football team that is worthy of our magnificent supporters.

2016 lets hope the world becomes a safer place and this year brings better times for our beloved team. On a personal note one of my daughters is getting married and the other is having her first child so i will be a grandad for the first time.
Happy new year everyone 2015 was a pleasure.
