End of Season 2010-2011

10 May

So ends the first season of You’re Supposed To Be At Home!

This blog began in the gardens of The Swan & Cemetery, Bury before Colwyn Bay’s game against FC United. I had recently returned from travels around Europe and was telling my fellow seagulls about the trip, where one said “You really should start a blog on it!”. Two months on-and-off grafting and a few bob spent on a domain name, and You’re Supposed To Be At Home was born. It seemed fitting that the FC United vs Colwyn Bay FA Trophy game was the first game to cover.

At the time, I didn’t expect to cover that there’d be one other game to cover between the two sides, but at the end of the season, I did. Evostik Premier Playoffs Final, where Colwyn Bay won and gained promotion into the Conference North.

For this blog, this is a good thing, as a whole new section of grounds to visit next year and a lot of content. But for me, this has been probably my busiest season. I’ve counted 28 games seen live (with an extra one abandoned), across 22 grounds, 10 competitions and 4 countries. I’ve one game already planned (more on that soon enough), another one on the cards and a few other sports I’ll likely cover as well.

But what of this blog for the close season? I’m already clamouring for friendlies, and there are a few games I’ve written match reports which I’ve yet to add (including a 0-0 draw at Burscough, our trip to Buxton, Woodley Sports vs Chester City, a trip to a fan club in Manchester that’s not FC United amongst others), but may save them when I’m forced to go to Ikea or something.

So, on that note, I’ll throw this open to you. What do you think I should do during the close season?

  • Leave it quiet for the close season, interacting with facebook & twitter?
  • Accept Guest posts? I do already accept guest posts, but don’t really whore myself out on them. But if anybody fancies posting about a ground or a match you’ve been to – get in touch!
  • Post the match reports?

Let me know!

In the meantime, I’ve a few posts written on various things, which I will post – so it won’t be completely quiet during the close season. If you haven’t already: like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.

Roll on the friendlies!
