The Observant Alternative

The alternative opinion on news, live from the journalists, media professionals people.

The beginning…

Do what? Written a blog before?! Nah mate, first time ever! WOW..what an adventure to start now he said, and to be completely fair, I don’t disagree!!

For precisely three weeks, I have sat here and pondered, and quite frankly, dithered at times in putting pen to paper – actually, I can’t stand ditherers either!

Why?

They just annoy me and they turn up and appear everywhere, it’s like they are a different breed. The worst ones are when you are trying to get out the house quickly in the morning, or when you’re late for something that had been pre-arranged, but hadn’t been pre-arranged with me in the first place!!

Anyway, I had the theory in my head that I fancied a bit of change, and not my wife just to add, but that I wanted to write and blog. I even knew what I to blog and write about as well.

I haven’t even told anyone, that I wanted to do this either – which is a little bizarre in itself!

So, off I went and called my little brother, who happens to be a bit of a whizz at all things technological and all the IT stuff! I mean, anyway, what the hell is IT?

Premier League Review – Matchday Six

So, oddly, two lunchtime games this week, which we have never had before. Let me start with this week’s awards ceremony, which is both difficult and interesting. Worst Team – Man Utd, with that squad of players and their ability, they should have beaten Villa at home. Furthermore, what planet is their manager on? Best team – Brentford, they played so well against a Liverpool team that are in great form right now. They deserved a point, if not more from this game. Villain of the Week – There are three options for this, its difficult. Joel Matip was utterly

Premier League Review – Matchday Five

Is it just me that quite enjoys the Friday Night Game? But before that, let us start with the awards ceremony, shall we. Worst Team – Norwich City this week, because they were dreadful against Watford and Watford aren’t that much better in terms of quality. Best team – Chelsea. They went to Spurs, got overran in the first half and Tuchal had the invention to change it and change the game. Villain of the Week – The ‘model pro’ Harry Kane. Where was he AGAIN?! Hero of the Week – Sadio Mane for grabbing his 100th Liverpool goal. Without

Blog 15: – Being a Parent:

Not a parenting blog, but a parenting post…. When I was deliberating about my next topic for a few days last week, my son happened to give me the breakthrough! Listen, I am acutely aware not everyone is a parent, so this post will contain absolutely no interest for some, but it will for others and as normal, I hope it strikes a chord as per. It never ends does it? There is always something! There is always some little drama with our kids, no matter how fool proof you think you are. They un-intentionally annoy us, don’t say they

Reality TV

Just before I get right in to one, I think it maybe prudent to ask some questions and possibly advise people to have a word with themselves to be honest. How many times do you ever get asked, if you watch some sort of Reality TV dribble? How honest are you when you answer that question? If any men answer yes to those questions, then you need to go and do something manly like build a shed and be quick about it. I have spent many a year or season, if you want to be pedantic about it, in a

Deliberately No subject: – Version 1

Seriously, just stop…. I have pages with listed items of what I intend to write about in the future, and the difficult thing is picking the one thing that has got my heckles up in that particular moment. I am also increasingly concerned, on a more serious note, that I have written about everything that has irritated me and not really spoken about serious matters, that we are facing in the world today. Mind you, this isn’t a diary!! Is plastic in oceans a really serious matter, or Global Warming for that matter? We, the world, are mindful and conscious

Premier League Review – Matchday One

Right, first off, this one may be slightly longer than initially discussed with my Marketing and Communications Manager, but I wanted to get the point across on my first review and be able to set the scene adequately. Each week, I am aiming to give Observant Alternative View of the weekends Premier League, in the form of a satirical review in part of course. I am going to give some awards out each week too for. Worst Team – Arsenal Best team – Brentford Villain of the Week – Ederson for costing Man City a point Hero of the Week
