1Sunderland.com - The End
Friday, 03 October 2008 17:29

This is perhaps the hardest thing I've had to write on 1Sunderland.com... after over a decade, it's time to hang up the keyboard.

Okay, so that was a really corny way of saying it. In the past few weeks I've found it harder and harder to find time to update this website, and in line with a maxim I've held throughout my life "do it properly, or don't do it", I've made the decision to walk away.

Effective immediately, 1Sunderland.com and the SAFCnewsletter will be done - after over a decade of being online (under various names). I'm not very good at saying "goodbyes", and to be fair this isn't really a goodbye... more of a "see you all later." I'll still be going to Sunderland games, still be writing for ALS, but as far as doing daily updates, match reports and all of the work associated with 1Sunderland.com, my time is up.

In the near future I'll be starting up a blog, some of it Sunderland-related, but it will be nowhere near as comprehensive as 1Sunderland.com was. The site will remain online for the archives, as will the FTMforum.com message boards, which shall remain active.

There's plenty of people I'd like to thank for the last ten years, and I apologise in advance: John Dunnill (for the brief period of time we ran SAFCnet), Tom Henry (for taking care of the forums in the past, present and hopefully future), Steve Berry, Jonny, theamazingmute, superkev61 and all of the board moderators... Waterclear Solutions (for the FTMforum sponsorship), Brett (for the tip-offs), Martyn McFadden, AiFo, Adam Robson... and finally, anyone who's ever visited 1Sunderland.com or e-mailed me, all I can say is thank you for making this all worthwhile.

I'll be back someday...
