I've always been here, reading everything that goes on. I'm just really excited about what's happened in the last few days so I thought I'd quickly bash a few of my thoughts out. Hope it makes sense!
Still by far the best writer on SC! We are not worthy.

Great read again Ally. You were one of the main reasons I joined the community. I am not however convinced that Modric was keen to join Chelsea simply to play under AVB. I am sure the major pay rise and the perception that he had more chance of winning silverware and playing in the CL regularly was more of a factor. Hopefully AVB can talk to him and work his magic though.
You could be right. My hope is that he might agree with me in thinking Chelsea will continue to be as bad in the league under Di Matteo as they were after AVB's departure - his points and goals per game were worse than AVBs.

Pretty good. I had lost interest but Daniels stunning initiative has caught my attention again whatever happens. I also think the Modric thing has become boring and is something we can do without. There is always a line in the sand and beyond that point is something detrimental. We may have reached that point with Luka unless he outright rejects talk of a move and even then I'm not sure what has surrounded him this past year or so fits with the vibrant and positive future being constructed now no matter how good a player he is or any player like him. Some things are more important.

I love you sir, in a manly non-homosexual way obviously, for putting what I have said in so many posts on this site but in a more succinct, better-written way.

Great to read some nice articles from you again. It's been a long time since the last one. Hope the optimism with our new look team will inspire more from you.

Ally, I've missed you like Ade Akinbiye missed the net. Wonderful stuff.

What are you up to these days?

Allygold, Tottenham should employ you to speak to the players before a match. I'm much more excited about the start of the season after reading that!

Good to see you writing for SC again allygold.
Your musings welcomed me to this site many a moon ago and you've been missed during your break.
Long live the new Spurs revolution!

What I like the most about Ally is that people who are usually arguing the toss over stuff turn into calm Hindu cows when he enters the room

Your articles during the beginning of the Jol era were one of the main factors which made me sign up to SC, all those years ago.

Great to see you back. Keep it coming if you can.
THIS. It was those articles that made me want to sign up as well. My only internet forum with any posting. They were intelligent, fluid and are missed. Hope this is the beginning of a revival.

Great to read your work again Ally. Don't leave it so long next time eh!

I pretty much agree with all you wrote and as you say the excitement is building, especially now new players have started arriving too.

1600 words is hardly succinct. This is not to imply any criticism, whatsoever, of the article - merely the pedant in me.

Welcome back Ally. Thought you might have goon over to the dark side.
