I'm at a crossroads. For a long while I've resisted the urge to separate my daily blog postings from my football-related posts. Afterall they are part of my life here in Cambodia, even if many people switch off and scroll straight past my football output. However, I do understand the anti-football comments I receive and have been wrestling with the decision about whether to separate them for a while now. And I still can't decide (though I'm edging towards a 2nd blog solely for football). We're not yet into the full flow of the Cambodian football season, just a bunch of cup ties before the season starts properly in a few weeks time, so recent reports have been sporadic and usually at the weekends. Tomorrow for example, the Hun Sen Cup semi-finals will take place at Olympic Stadium with Phnom Penh Crown versus Naga and National Defense Ministry meeting Preah Khan Reach. I'll blog the results, as well as write them up for the Phnom Penh Post, and then make a final decision as to whether I should set up a separate football blog. As for the cup finalists, I'm in favour of a Naga versus National Defense final but I have an inkling that Preah Khan will prove too strong for the Army team in the 2nd of tomorrow's semis.

Sir, do what ya gotta do. If you think it is appropriate to create another blogs just to dedicate to football only, do so. I love your blog no matter what. I'm here almost everyday from long beach, cali, of course. I'm not a football fan myself. I just went straight to the meat and left the bone behind. Thanks for your loves and dedications to the Cambodian causes!

Decision made. I've set up a new blog for my football-related posts. I'll run it concurrently with my main blog for this weekend and then let it fly on its own next week.

Hi Andy

I've always enjoyed your blog, including the footie. Next time I'm in Phnom Penh, I'll definitely have a look at the local soccer scene. Last time I was in PP I was honoured to see a moto adorned with Arsenal's colours (yep, the pride of north London, my manor!). Keep up the good work!
