Hello ladies and gentlemen,
I started bombarding the blogosphere with my thoughts and assertions at the back end of 2011 though with my life getting busier I have somewhat neglected this site while populating others. Nevertheless it seems only right to introduce myself and tell you why I decided to become the latest nobody to throw himself into the internet’s ever-growing morass of unsolicited personal opinion.
My name is Phil and I have been known to offer my point of view on any given subject whether it has been requested or not. Said viewpoints are often – though not always – delivered with a certain amount of vehemence and accompanied by a gentle shower of spittle, which I hope satisfactorily explains the title of this blog.
Over the years many associates of mine have suggested that I share my unedited thoughts with the world via a personal blog though my line of work has largely meant that I have been writing restrained versions of them for my employers – sometimes under my own name but often under a pseudonym. However, circumstances changed and with my long-suffering wife having endured two years of listening to me admonish some bloke on the radio or express disdain for the latest refereeing howler, I decided it was time to give her a well-earned rest and unleash my thoughts on the rest of you instead. The ploy obviously worked as she is now my wife.
As a passionate football fan and season ticket holder at Chelsea Football Club, the vast majority of posts will inevitably be about the ‘Beautiful Game’ in general and West London’s premier club in particular, but – as I am an all-round sports geek – you should expect some opinions on anything else I have been watching lately. From time to time I may also veer into the arena of current affairs to offer my tuppence worth on the world at large and while I might be slightly less-informed in these areas do not think it will hold me back from offering a sweeping generalisation on the topic.
I hope you enjoy what I write but even if you don’t – in fact, especially if you don’t – please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section so that I know exactly where I should stick my opinions and what to do with my day job.
Shouty Spitty Phil
