This blog has been going for a while now and our group has seen some good times, along with many more bad times – but there has always one constant positive, the Craic in this ‘room’. We have Toonsy to thank for setting this site up and it’s unfortunate that he does not make it on anymore, hopefully all is well and we’ll see him soon.
Can I take this opportunity to gently encourage our past writers to join the cause and begin to contribute regularly again. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I miss those contributions. For a long while we had a diverse group of writers, from NUFC and his stats, Premandup’s look at finances etc, the bloke who lives in Dubai or Qatar who produces humorous anecdotes? MarkToon and many more.
Its good to see the likes of Kim chipping in these days too and it would be great if more people wanted to have a crack at it. Don’t worry if you have strong opinions, the more debate the better – lets kick this blog back into full swing again! If you have ideas for a series of stories, go for it! I used to run a series based on our fringe players for example. We could have series on our youth players, coaches, players we have sold in the last few years, players we have been linked to in recent years – how have their careers panned out?
We will still be the Toon Army long after Ashley has gone, so lets get the place buzzing again. If you can remember the names of past contributors and what was unique about them – comment below. Lets see if we can prize them out of their hiding places!
