Arsenal’s marking on that throw in was a joke, 2 at the back post wide open. Leno stuck in a wrestle, but no one comes to help. 🤯

Ugh…in the opening 5 minutes, Arsenal look like the team that was promoted to the Premier League, not Brentford. 🤦‍♂️

Arsenal’s first half against Brentford was a disgrace. There’s going to need to be a few changes at halftime, be it tactics or personnel, for the Gunners to get back into the match.

Today, it was announced that Newcastle and the surrounding areas will stay in lockdown for another week as the daily number of positive COVID cases are still too high. So I guess that gives me at least another week of home schooling fun. Yay…

It hasn’t all been bad though, I’ve been able to dedicate more time to the projects I’ve been working on. I’ve been able to dive into Saga: Compendium One, which is so good. I’ve also been able to spend some time playing with the video we’ve been capturing at New Lambton FC, which I’ll start sharing on New Lambton’s social media in the coming days.

At the moment, I’m guessing we’ll be in lockdown for at least 3 weeks. Hopefully I’ll be wrong!

This is one of my favourite shots this season, it’s of Tyson Cummings making some room for himself in the box against South Cardiff FC in the late afternoon sun during their Northern League One, Round 5 clash at Ulinga Oval, South Cardiff. New Lambton went on to win this match 4-1.

The end of the first week of lockdown in Newcastle isn’t too far away, however, with the rising numbers of local cases I can’t see it ending this week though. It doesn’t make a huge difference to my every day life during the week, the biggest difference comes on the weekends when there’s no football on, at least it’s letting me catch up on the backlog of editing that’s sitting in Lightroom currently.

Hope you and yours are staying safe wherever you happen to be.

I’ve noticed over the past couple of weeks that the advertising on Instagram has gotten even worse, it’s like scrolling through the old Sky Mall magazines, but the ads are so cleverly disguised, in most cases, that they appear to be someone you’re following.
