Merry Christmas !

A very Merry Christmas to all

At this festive time it is worth making the effort to thank all the people who visit the site and comment on the various issues and articles. It is really appreciated and I enjoy reading your insights, reactions, views and reading your opinions!


The great thing about soccer is that despite the fact that we all believe;we would make a great coach, we all believe we know what players do right and wrong, we all believe we know how the game should be played,we all believe our opinions about players, coach's, refereeing decisions, goals, saves and games are absolutely right, we are all drawn together in an unfettered love of the game.

We can disagree about absolutely everything and yet we are united within the soccer family. We may have completely different opinions about the game than and we might even be able to have heated debates and argue about tiny details, but if you love the game, I have a lot more in common with you than I don’t.

See you in the new year !

Anyway, enough of this. As most of you are aware my wife and I are in the Arctic and our time here is drawing to a close. We will spend Christmas in Nunavut with our oldest daughter Melissa, and we will spend the New Year in Ontario with our other three children , Lori, Mark and Allison . Then it's back to St. John's where I will back at Senior Men's soccer in January getting soccer ready for the 2012 season.

I really do wish you and your families everywhere a very happy, healthy and safe Christmas.
