Living The Dream

One final personal post (well more a plea!) before something more serious, it is my blog after all!

My friends and I have entered an O2 competition which requires us to obtain as many ‘likes’ as possible on our team page in order for us to fulfil our dream of gracing The Emirates Stadium turf with our silky(ish) skills:

 As I write we are currently sitting in 7th place with 862 votes (following a brief spell in top spot), please click the link above and press ‘like’ to boost our chances.  That is all you need to do, it couldn’t be simpler.

 This would mean the world to the eight Bedfordshire based lads who make up the ‘Flitwick Gooners’:
