Today Sparkster.net is officially 1 year old.

The first blog entry was made on this website back on 26th April 2004. It doesn’t seem that long to be honest, looking through the archive a lot has been covered over the last year…

May 2004
This month saw Leeds United’s relegation from The Premiership and Chelsea’s fall out from The Champions League. I bought a new PC and got a 1mbps internet connection.

June 2004
Not many entries this month. It was Euro 2004 and Alan Smith’s transfer to Manchester United.

July 2004
Leeds started shipping out all their old players and bringing in new faces although they failed to deliver my new shirt. Ahmed went crazy on Big Brother 5. My Sky+ broke (for the first time). I bought a new fan for the summer and saw Shrek 2.

August 2004
Leeds won The Whyte & Mackay Cup and started life in The Coca Cola Championship. I got scared by lightning and spiders. There was a surprise eviction from Big Brother 5. I won some money betting on the football and had a problem with spam.

September 2004
I tried out dumping Sparkster.net for a solely football blog site LUFCBlog.com. It didn’t work very well…

October 2004
I caught a bad cold and stayed in watching Aladdin and That Peter Kay Thing on DVD. I upgraded my mobile phone to a Nokia 6230, buying a memory card to go with it (which I nearly damaged). England beat Wales. Leeds beat Preston. I got Fifa 2005 for the Gamecube and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation 2. I watched Shark Tale and Layer Cake at the cinema.

November 2004
I went to the dentist and had a bit of trouble. Got scared in the cinema toilets after watching The Grudge. Leeds United looked to be in the money but ended up selling Elland Road. They then beat QPR 6-1 which I watched live. They then lost 1-0 to Rotherham. I watched a bit of rugby and planned a Christmas Single for Leeds United.

December 2004
Watched a fair few films at the cinema. Leeds had some very good and very bad results. They also got their arses sponsored. Clyde Connelly from Dream Team killed himself. Peter Kay made a new advert for John Smiths. There was some crap Christmas TV and a review of my favourite films.

January 2005
Leeds had some good games. Man Utd got lucky. Celebrity Big Brother kicked off. John McCririck missed his Diet Coke. Jackie Stallone scared us all. Ken Bates said he wasn’t going to buy Leeds. Ken Bates bought Leeds. Busted split up. I started (learning) to drive and suggested Vinnie Jones as the Leeds manager.

February 2005
I got attacked by a spider. Had a fight with my PC. A Welshman chopped his knob off. Some woman we’ve all forgotten about sailed somewhere and came home. Leeds signed Rob Hulse. The Chav population rose. Everton fans attacked Man Utd players and it was very cold.

March 2005
Delia Smith got pissed. Michael Duberry got sold. Michael Scumacher spun out. Man Utd crashed out. Peter Kay got to No.1 (at this moment in time he still is!). Sky annoyed me. Harry Kewell got fat. I liked The Kaiser Cheifs and had an invasion of woodlice. My work got published.

April 2005
You’re reading it.

Now I’m very tired and it’s far too late to check all this for spellings and grammar like I normally do. If it sounds like David Beckham wrote it, I’m sorry!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
