Diego Maradona R.I.P – 1960 – 2020

Thursday, 26th November, 2020


Yesterday came the sad news that Diego Maradona passed away due to a cardiac arrest. He was 60 years old.

Michael 84 - Football Shirt Friday Newcastle Shirt

Today is football shirt Friday!

I’ve been wearing football shirts quite a bit lately, but today is a special day. Since it’s officially Football Shirt Friday 2020, I thought I would mark it with a special shirt.

It’s my Newcastle United Away shirt from 1996-97.

This isn’t a new shirt, it’s not a reproduction. It’s my actual shirt I wore in 1996. It still fits!

Apple TV+ Review - Is It Worth It

I got Apple TV+ a few months back when I bought my new iPhone SE. It’s a nice little bonus that Apple has given us, to watch their new subscription TV service which is £4.99 in the UK.
