I can't believe it's that time again already but here we are. As I write this the final round of Premier League games has just got under way and there's little at stake for most London clubs with none in contention for the title or battling to avoid the drop.
Below this we're well into the Football League's play-off season with the first legs of all the semi-finals (bar York v Fleetwood) having been completed.
QPR and Leyton Orient, the two London clubs involved, managed to draw their away legs at Wigan and Peterborough to put them in a decent position ahead of the second legs this week.
Personally I'm off to the QPR v Wigan game on Monday. The last time Rangers made the play-offs in 2003 I actively avoided going because I simply couldn't take the tension. On this occasion my attitude has completely changed and I'm not sure why.
Maybe it's because I'm that much older, wiser and a bit more jaded. Maybe it's because our last spell in the Premier League was such a joke. Don't get me wrong, I'll be overjoyed if we make it up but if we don't I won't be devastated - in all honesty, we are a Championship club while someone like Derby or Brighton are probably better set to sustain top-flight football.
Anyway back to the blog. This edition covers everything for the rest of May as there really isn't that much on. To bulk things up, it has become the trend at this time of year to also include some Step 7/Level 11 football from the Middlesex County and Essex Olympian Leagues. I've also added a few matches from the FA Women's Super League. Beware though, games at Step 7/Level 11 can move or have kick-off times changed and confirming such info is often tricky. There are also a few friendlies, testimonials and charity games.
Also, despite the match being played just outside the M25, I received a request from the Amateur FA asking to help them promote the title deciding match in the Southern Amateur League between Winchmore Hill and Old Wilsonians. It's being played in Potters Bar and it's free to get in so if you're in north London on Tuesday evening, this could be one for you.
Anyway that's it from me for the summer, enjoy your World Cup and hope to see you back here again in July when the pre-season friendlies get going.
Got any questions about visiting London? Don't hesitate to ask - be they football or more general travel/touristy queries.
It should also be noted that the top four levels are for fully professional teams. Level 5 has a mixture of professional and semi-professional teams, while Levels 6-10 will see most players paid but it will vary from no more than travel expenses at the bottom, right up to several hundred pounds a week at the top (e.g. clubs in the Conference South).
