With today’s match report written and online it’s time to say goodbye. After 15 years on the interweb RedWeb is pulling up the drawbridge and snuffing out the candles. It’s over. Finished. La Fin etc. For those paying attention you will of course remember that I said this once before. Indeed. That was many moons ago when Philliben and TGR had drained every ounce of enthusiasm from my body. The arrival of RedWebToo/Dinamo i.e. Deena, relit the fire. That fire still burns. It always will but not enough for me to continue.
Looking back it’s been an interesting journey. From my first offering written in good old Microsoft Front Page and hosted on FreeUK (I believe you can actually still find the odd page somewhere), through the short lived Rivals franchise, stopping, starting, Deena, photos, professional websites, Stirling Observer, the campaign, the trust, the exec, the end. Been tiring at times. Many an evening spent at the keyboard. Much midnight oil burned for midweek games. However, I’ve always known people were out there who appreciated our efforts. For that reason I have carried on this long.
Why now? Well it’s simple. I want to do other things with my Saturdays. Want to do other things with my brain. Still going to watch the Albion. Just not as often. My love for writing will continue though. Just moving onto the world of creative fiction. “Isn’t that what you always did I hear you cry?”. Perhaps on occasion. For the most part though what you got was what happened. Spiced up with my own opinion but the facts none the less. If my words painted a picture then whether it was a picture of despair, desperation or delirium then my job was done.
Ah well. Time to go. If you wish to keep reading my words then you are more then welcome to follow me via my WordPress blog. On here you’ll find a mix of subjects. A lot of my creative fiction thoughts will be on here but plenty of other things too. From time to time there may even be an Albion match report if the mood takes. So perhaps it’s not as all over as it seems. Well, it is for RedWeb. That’s for sure. The forum will remain for now but the match reports and photos section is complete. Thanks for reading and hopefully enjoying what we produced.
All the best.
Paul & Deena.
p.s Mon’ the Beanos!
