Toon fans, would you like your thoughts to be featured on Metro.co.uk?

As some of you may already know, I am currently the Newcastle United blogger for metro.co.uk, the website for the free newspaper distributed in London and several other major cities throughout the UK.
Anyway, I want to prepare a piece over the next few days for my Metro blog which features the thoughts of my fellow Newcastle United fans about what the coming season might bring for the club, whether it’s about Alan Pardew, how well you think we will do in what remains of the transfer window, where you think we will finish or whatever.
As it won’t be an epic piece overall as it is word limited, so it would be great if you could keep your entries to around 50 words. To give you an idea, the paragraph preceding this one is 58 words, so something slighly shorter would be fine, or about the same about the length if you absolutely must, but definitely nothing over 60 words please. If you don’t have Microsoft Word or something similar with a word counter and can’t be bothered to count the words one by one, you can find an online word counter here.
You can just submit your thoughts via the comments below if you want to, or alternatively, send them in by e.mail using our contact form. If you could put the nom de plume you would like to be known as in the piece before your thoughts, whether it’s your real name or a nickname, that would be great. Also, no swearing and nothing libellous please. Due to the word limitation I mentioned above, I can’t promise to include all of them but if I am inundated with good ones, I might just do two pieces instead of one.
Finally, although this for for the website, I have been told that sometimes my work will be used in the newspaper itself, which has a circulation of over 1.3 million!
Many thanks in anticipation, WT.
