The End Of An Era
And so it is, life goes on.
A bit of a Damien Rice track there. Great album that I recommend to all!
So, at the end of The Incider Isssue 18, the curtains are coming down on an era of my life that'll look back on with fond memories.
It's been emotional.
Funny to think back almost two and half years ago when this all started, and I was a mere graduate coming back from, of all places, Plymouth.
My support for City since then has grown more and more by the day, to the extent where now I have done this site, helped out on the rivals site, BCFC pics and not forgetting OTIB which is now part of the day job!
So what next, what is life going to involve after The Incider?
For me, it'll be the start of a winding down process.
I'm tired of making the effort for some lowlife idiot to take a swipe at something that I've put my evenings' energies into.
I can recall many an issue of the Incider going long into the early hours of the morning only for someone to slag it off in the morning. True, you can't please all of the people all of the time, but to me, you'll never please some people any of the time.
If you think this site was about self image, then you are deeply mistaken. There are far worse City fans who go about trying to do that .There are some who'll bang on that this site is under the control of our board of Directors.
Laughable? I nearly pissed myself. Let's go and look back at some of the interviews, articles and sketches. Is that something the club would want to associate with? I doubt it.
This site is, and always has been, about the three of us having a laugh and sharing some articles and jokes with the rest of you. By the end of this Issue I'm sure I'll not be alone in breathing a sigh of relief that it's all over. Sure, some people will even manage to take a pop at Issue 18. But some things will never change.
So, next time someone wants to take a pop about The Incider, go tell the world, go tell anyone.
But don't tell me because, frankly my dear, I won't give a flying f..
Goodnight. God bless. Keep The Red Flag Flying High.
