    Earthquakes, floods, and here I am thinking of Christmas and still my barbecue has not been fired.

    What a week!
    Many cancelled appointments, Leonard Cohen dies, Rory returned to the UK missing the international fixture versus New Caledonia and many annoying factors that life throws up that does not augur well for a happy existence.

    It was good to hear from the Manukau Leader journalist Alan Apted early in the week. He was interested in the reasoning behind my decision to sign a new contract for the 2017 season with the Manukau City Football Club. The reason was simple. I enjoyed the season plus I informed him that with a few additions to the same squad it was not unrealistic to think that in twelve months time we may be celebrating once again.

    What was happening around St Luke's on Saturday afternoon that made the roads almost gridlocked? Was it the Indian festival that reduced Sandringham to a standstill? Was it pre Christmas sales at nearby St Luke's shopping centre? Or was it the home game of Auckland City versus Tasman United at Kiwitea Street?

    What this week has driven home to me is there is life after football or rather there is life alongside football.

    The big news for me this week was the unbelievable turn out in the Australian "A League" derby game between Sydney West Wanderers and Sydney City. A crowd of 61,880 is just the boost the "A league" needs at a time when television contracts are due. There is no way advertisers and sponsors can ignore a support base of that magnitude. Then I start reflecting on crowd support here in New Zealand. Quickly followed by two headache tablets.

    It's out of season for me and Manukau City but life and football goes on. Many people ask me what do I find to write about. I write about life and football. Easy. Or facetiously I answered I could write about two flys climbing up a wall.

    I thought my morning was speeding by and then saw in my diary 25th September, Daylight saving starts New Zealand. I lost that hour somewhere?

    You can guarantee it happening, the football season ends and I catch a dose of flu that for a week has put me out of action.

    Both players have been instrumental in our success. They are a coaches dream, diminutive yes but dynamic and talented also. So we have many reasons to keep the foot on the pedal and win.
