Many thanks to those who've taken an interest in this little obsession of mine, and whose comments (here and elsewhere) make the whole thing very worthwhile from my point of view. Thanks also to those - and you know who you are - whose writings on other sites and in other media give me a peg on which to hang my rants so often.
To celebrate a year of tragic blogging, I'm inviting all concerned to the Campsie Hotel (the friendliest pub in the western suburbs, and a true friend of Australian football) next Saturday night (July 7) from 8:30, to share some drinks and banter and catch the opening match of the Asian Cup later in the evening on one of the big screens.
Friend or foe, Foster or Fink, you're all invited. And if I've ever had a go at you over this last year on the blog, the first two beers are on me (three in your case, Mr. Foster).
In the spirit of the Asian Cup (and to aid recognition for those who don't know me), I'll be there in a Manchester United replica shirt.
Come one, come all.
Congrats anyway Mike - it's a great service for all us football fans still disgracefully starved by the mainstream media. Actually, all the various bloggers and website creators should be commended.
I'd love to go along to the Campsie, but that's a long trip from Tardistan!

For the hardcore Sydney north shore types, it seems even further for them. ;-)
Will touch base soon.
The Campsie's pretty big so you could mention it's the large room at the back on the ground level, with the pool tables. Campsie is a good option for me that night, so I'll try to make it.
Thanks mags, should've mentioned that.
Hope you can make it.
From the maelstrom of TWGF, to unofficial, watching games with you at the Campsie and Belmore, it's an absolute pleasure to read such thoughtful opinions from one who is so much more eloquent with the written word then I am. You bring forth angles I never consider on my own and know what a decent football debate is all about.
Here's to the next 12 months and beyond!
Wish you were here, i'm sure you do too, but I'll make sure we have a beer for you tonight.
Thanks to your blog for keeping me informed so well about everything football!
