Hi, it's me. Yes, you may remember me. I used to write things on here. Not, perhaps, overly insightful things, but things - generally known as words - nonetheless. And then it went a bit quiet. So, er, yes. Sorry about that. Things got a bit busy, then I decided to take a short break, then I changed jobs. And, in between that, I spent the best part of a week writing a lot of articles for Pitch Invasion on fan ownership and Supporters' Trusts in football.
All the articles are collected here - and if you're interested in this aspect, please do stop by there, have a read and leave a comment. It's less about on-the-pitch, than off-the-pitch business and cultural aspects, although the game itself obviously informs things. I did several interviews for this and the answers were completely fascinating.
The articles, individually are:
A break from me writing as Terry Duffelen explores the Bundesliga fan-ownership model.
An interview with Brian Burgess, ex vice-chairman of Brentford, long-standing member of Bees United and Supporters' Direct board member.
And that's that. I think that's more words than I wrote for my dissertation. Maybe I should do another degree on this topic.
Anyway, I'm now back, I'm slowly setting into the hugely enjoyable new job, my Macbook - which died last Sunday - has come back to life and I have a host of posts in my head.
So expect the next post on here sometime in May.
