Well, this is bittersweet.

This week I took up a position writing full-time about Liverpool Football Club, my boyhood team, at my boyhood newspaper. I’ll be writing nerdy tactical/data stuff, goofy/fun stuff and anything everything in-between at Liverpool.com. Basically, what I’ve been doing here over there.

Leaving mid-season, during Inter’s pursuit to end this decade-long drought sucks. But it was an opportunity I could not turn down.

I’d like to thank everyone who has read and engaged with my stuff during my brief spell at the helm. Your interaction and enthusiasm for the tactical pieces as well as the nonsense has been excellent. And thanks to the people upstairs who gave me complete freedom to write whacky things and technical thing rather than churn out transfer gossip.

Inter is not for everyone. But it is for me. I hope to return to doing stuff (anyone know where I can get a book deal?), particularly as we get close to the end of the league campaign.

In the meantime, as the company looks for a replacement, I will continue with the upkeep of the most important stuff — live threads, any serious breaking news etc.

Thanks again to you all,

Ollie
