Now, I know in advance that this will end up as a low-interest post because I’m not offering a splashy title about whom we’re going to splash some cash on in January, but maybe that’s because I’m trying to have my cake and eat it too. If you’re here reading this and read beyond this point, you might actually visit this little blog o’ mine more than occasionally, and you are therefore more inclined to give me the feedback I seek. If you’re not here, all the better for me because I’m therefore somewhat less likely to get the kind of feedback I don’t like. With that in mind, I’ll offer a brief, brief history of why I’m here (while you reconsider why it is exactly that you’re here) and then ask you to weigh in on a few issues. Let’s get to it, shall we?
I started this blog in frustration on the day after we signed Nacho Monreal—31 January 2013. He was our only signing of the winter window, and I was angry. I didn’t realise at the time that he’d be La Cabra. Perhaps more importantly, I was miserable at work and needed some kind of outlet. Things were going well, so well, in fact, that this blog was nominated to two “Best New Blog” competitions. Mine was the only one-club blog in both; I was competing against numerous committee-blogs that covered numerous clubs. Despite those long odds, I finished second in one and never found out about the other because they apparently never announced a winner. That could have been my big break. Ah well. Anyway, I found a new job and found myself with less time to write. That coincided with the last few years of Wenger’s tenure and all of Emery’s. Maybe feeling inspired by where we are now, I started writing again in mid-October.
There. I hope that was as brief as I led you to believe. Here’s where I want your help. Below is a Google Form with a few questions. It won’t collect your email or any personal information, but I do hope you’ll give it some thought. If there are other suggestions or critiques that come to mind, leave those in the comments-section below. Be tough but fair.
That brings us to this brief Google Form. It won’t collect anything from you beyond the responses you provide. In addition to the five questions, I hope you’ll consider offering any other thoughts, suggestions, or critiques that come to mind. Thanks in advance! Oh, you can view results after you finish, but you may have to scroll back up here after submitting your responses.
