UPDATE (20-10-2022 19:10):  I have been meaning to do another update as it still bothers me greatly that I am unable to keep on top of all the e-mail's I receive. The number outstanding is still over 400 and although I don't like to admit it, many of them will remain unanswered, which is a great pity. I have befriended a lot of great people over the period I've been working on my blog - the 10th anniversary comes around early in the New Year.

My wife and I are in poor health and that's not going to change. I think it's safe to say that where we're at at the moment is as good as it's going to get. My wife is my priority, her happiness and well-being is more important to me than anything. I still enjoy adding new checklists and other items to my blog, even though I have less time on my hands these days, it's still something I enjoy doing.

I must apologise to everyone who has written to me and not received a reply. I would like to say that that situation will change but I know that's very unlikely. Not being able to answer my e-mails is an on-going source of frustration and concern

If you have new information, updates or amendments relating to posts on my blog please use the 'Comments' which can be accessed at the bottom of each of them. I am not on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any of the social media platforms so leaving a comment is the easiest way to contact me at the moment. I do keep on top of these as often as I can and 99% are actioned within 24 hours and I have no outstanding comments at this moment in time.

Take care, stay safe and apologies again to everyone whom I have disappointed,

Alan

  4. Best wishes to you and your wife Alan. Your website has been invaluable to so many over those ten years. Amazing to think it's been that long! I remember the first postings and how informative it all was. Great work and keep well, both of you.
    best regards

    ps the big trough the top 20 stick their noses in isn't all that but I'm glad to have seen a season or two in my lifetime in the top tier. Too many cards to chase though! Keeping it simple and picking up just one of each! https://brentfordfcmemorabilia.wordpress.com/brentford-fc-trade-cards-2022/

    1. Hi Paul,

      That's very kind of you, it's amazing how quickly the time passes.

      I know what you mean about Brentford, I feel the same about Cardiff City. I saw one game when we last played in the First Division in 1961/62 when I was 10. There were some good times after that, usually in Europe but during the really bad times in the 1980's and 1990's I never thought we'd ever get back to the top tier. Luckily that first season in the Premier League there was only one set of real cards issued and I managed to get many of the parallels as there were only about half a dozen variation back then. Now it's dozens of parallels for each release. In a way it makes me glad that we are now a long, long way from ever getting back in the Premier League. We're more likely to end up going in the opposite direction!

      Take care and stay safe,
      Alan
