Health Update - 25 July, 2013
Last week I had a battery of medical tests completed, and they still show my PSA count as undetectable, which indicates the prostate cancer is still under control and there is no trace of it in the body.
And I have completed the two years of hormone treatment since the prostatectomy, so it now gets into an interesting period, according to the specialists, but I hope not too interesting.
What does this mean to you the reader - it means the blog will continue for at least another six months - until I get my next set of tests.
Hopefully by then Newcastle will be in the top six
What Is A Football Club?
“What is a club in any case?"
“Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.
It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes."
“It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city."
“It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
