Currently, my Tuesday and Thursday nights are set aside for the Worksop Town Under 19's trials, training and coaching sessions at Manton Athletic Club, until the Windsor Foods North Midlands Under 19's League commences at the end of August/beginning of September.
But I'll be fitting other games in whenever possible depending on work commitments.
I don't actually envisage going to nearly as many games as last season, nor blogging as regularly or as long windedly as I did throughout 2009-10. That ought to please some people.

New points of call for me during 2010-11:
Chasetown FC - Evo-Stik Premier
Nottingham United - CMFL Premier
Whatton United - CMFL Premier
Hucknall Town Unity - North Midlands U19
West Bridgford Colts - North Midlands U19
AFC Fylde or Market Drayton Town
Either or on 16th October v Worksop Town FA Trophy

Other business,
World Cup 2010 Overview:
In my opinion it was hugely disappointing.
Germany put in a few excellent performances, England didn't.
New Zealand went home unbeaten and did themselves proud.
Diego Forlan is a much better player now than he ever was while he was at Man Utd PLC.
Paul the Psychic Octopus hasn't ever had sex and his short life expectancy cycle means he will most likely be dead in 6 months anyway.
When a creature living out his last on death row at the SeaLife Aquarium in Oberhausen was the star of the show, it speaks volumes for the 'entertainment' on offer in South Africa this Summer.
Germany's 4-0 victory over Argentina (my tip to win the World Cup) was the best team performance I saw throughout the whole tournament.
And the worst? Well ... England against either Algeria or Germany had to be among the contenders for that award, ouch!
I clawed my way to third place in the WTFC Forum prediction league.
Err ... that's it really.
