November got off to a dramatic start, as I headed to Mourneview Park to see nine man Linfield come from 2-0 down to get a late draw against Glenavon.
I was back on the road a few days later to Ballymena to see Linfield record a 4-1 in win.
Up next was a trip to Windsor Park to see Northern Ireland record a 4-0 win over Azerbaijan, before continuing Linfield’s road trip with a 4-0 over Dungannon Swifts before a midweek date at Windsor Park for Northern Ireland’s last game of 2016, a 3-0 friendly defeat against Croatia.
I was back at Windsor Park for Linfield’s only home game of the month, a 2-1 defeat to Cliftonville.
The following weekend, I went to see my first and second games at Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho as United manager, doing a double header of games against Feyenoord and West Ham United, with a trip to Bury (via Broadhurst Park) sandwiched inbetween.
As a bonus, I even got pictures of stickers left around Manchester by Feyenoord fans.
