Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day


The first Sir Bobby Robson National Football Day takes place today as we mark 150 years of The FA.

What is a club in any case?

Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.

It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.

It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

– Sir Bobby Robson

Finished Fullmetal Alchemist 1



So a while ago as part of the manga reddit exchange, I was sent the first Fullmetal Alchemist book. Having not really been into Manga but loved various Anime I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy it. What I discovered was quite the opposite, I loved the manga! While reading I found myself making up my own voices for the characters which was completely new and something I hadn’t and couldn’t have experienced with Anime.

A short post because I’m terrible at reviewing things, all that you need to know is that I really enjoyed it!
