December’s football watching began with a trip to Windsor Park, a place where I would spend four of the five Saturdays during the month, to see Linfield scrape a 1-0 win over Dungannon Swifts.
Postponements would then frustrate my football watching, as Linfield’s trip to Carrick was postponed, as was the FA Cup Replay between Crewe Alexandra and Blackburn Rovers, which I had planned on attending.
The reason for this was that I was in North-West England to see Manchester United take on AFC Bournemouth, my first visit to Old Trafford of the season.
I then headed to Windsor Park on successive Saturdays to see Linfield take on Warrenpoint Town and Cliftonville.
That was then followed by a Boxing Day trip to The Oval, the less said about that, the better.
After that, it was back to Windsor Park to see Linfield take on Crusaders. The less said about that, the better.
