The more eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that this place has been quiet again this week, and I do apologise if you’ve missed your daily fill of football talk because of it. The truth is that I’m struggling to motivate myself to write here at the moment, and so I’m going to give myself a little time off from this and hopefully come back refreshed in a week or two. There are a few reasons for this…
Firstly, I’ve not long clocked my third year of university and am currently having a (well-earned) rest back home in Nelson and to be honest, my brain is enjoying just being able to relax for a while, and trying to force myself to engage in writing articles of the standard that I try and maintain on this site is just not that appealing at present.
On top of that, real life is getting in the way a bit too, as though I’m currently neither studying or working I’ve a lot on my mind given that my family is gearing up for a change of cities which involves big move so I’m also trying to make the most of spending time with friends in the Nelson region before we head off to pastures new and so I’m finding it hard to devote time to this site.
Finally, and perhaps most of all, I’m not enjoying football as much as usual at present. Everton’s season is turning into a bit of a nightmare with injuries pretty much destroying our ambitions and threatening a scrap in the lower echelons of the Premier League. Given the strength of my obsession with my beloved club, it often seems more sensible not to dwell too much on football at present, because it only ever seems to darken my mood!
So in all, I think I just need a bit of time away from They Think It’s All Over… to recharge my football-writing batteries. I’m not sure how long that will take, but I’m sure I’ll be back in action sooner rather than later and certainly before the busy festive season. I hope you’ll continue to check back occasionally to keep up with my progress and I’ll see you all soon. All the best, Adam.
