It is, apparently. I daresay I'll be able to remember it by the time we get to June.
Italian football is on its winter break and Serie A doesn't restart til the 13th January. Instead I went to Chelsea-Newcastle last weekend, which was an inadequate substitute (it was surprisingly poor, Chelsea winning scabbily from a blatantly offside goal after a lot of scrappiness and awful passing). Still, CB was mostly happy, and that's the main thing.
In the meantime I have spent the last 10 days being ill, boringly. I shan't share the details with you. Today I feel alrightish but it could be another false dawn.
Hope you all had a good NYE and are full of optimism and enthusiasm for the New Year.
