Right, formalities first. Merry Christmas and all other greetings of the season to our readers out there. We hope you were all properly stuffed over the festive period and got nicely pissed watching the umpteenth re-run of Morcambe & Wise no the gogglebox. Also, spare a thought for those less fortunate than yourselves at this time of year. Such as those in the occupied territories over the border in Carshalton.

It’s hard to believe that this time one whole year ago I was at pretty much my lowest point in my life, and I mean seriously low. A bout of taking amitriptyline for migraines brought about a serious side effect of anxiety and depression – I am not afraid to admit it.

So who would've thought that we would still be in two cup competitions after Christmas and neither of them being my beloved Surrey Senior Cup. Normally, if we have a run in one of the FA tournaments, the other seems to take a backward step and we're usually dumped out in the qualifying rounds. But we're a proper Conference club now, so it's only one bloody match to make both of the first rounds.

Well what a funny old week it's been for the U's. Not only have we had to bear witness to a Sutton team concede six goals at home in embarrassing fashion (I'm sure the last time that happened was probably against K's in the Charity Shield at the arse end of the 20th Century), but we also were fortunate to see the boys make it the third round of the little known FA Cup after a last gasp goal from Deacon against Cheltenham.

For all our moaning lately about the FA Cup, the shit draws, the lack of respect paid by top level clubs and the fact it's all about the money these days we do, deep down, still love the old pot. However, Coventry was 27 years ago now. And it's 22 since we last dumped out a FL side and reached the 3rd round. So the CV is looking a bit dated now and is in need of some freshening up.

To begin my blog I would like to say how saddened I was at the departure of Ross Stearn or in my case Rossi. As loyal readers will know and gather Rossi was my favourite player; even more hard hitting than the departure of Harry Beautyman. I would like to go on record to thank Ross for his time at Sutton United and a more personal thank you for the signed shirt (won by auction) and signed photo (birthday present from Natalie). However, I realise footballers move on and so must we as a team. Good luck mate!
