I’m going to be a dad for a second time. A thought, I feel, that is more worrying than being a dad to one. There’s so much that you have to do as a new dad, from what I remember, but now I have to do it with another one hanging off my elbow? Surely, that’s not fair!?
Yes, before you say it, I know lots of people are recruiting their own battalions ‘from within’ but I will not be going that far! I always said I’d stop at two, preferably one boy and one girl. Although, ultimately, that isn’t important, just so long as they both realise the importance of football.
