So the season has started, too early for our old fashioned point of view (despite our fist accumulator win) for it is still the summer holidays. Then again English Summer is about as predictable as my footy predictions and makes about as much sense as your average football pundit.
Now for our rant….not only such a n early start to the season but the Community Shield hailed as a major trophy please establishment go back to having a less competitive and more Charity competition and played August Bank Holiday as a season opener.
Oh how we do pine for the old days, interesting pundits like Clough, Allison and the like, no Champions League but the European Cup – knock out from the start with no doggy lives into the Europa and the Cup Winners’ Cup for the holders of the respective nations cup. As for this Premiership, Championship business – it’s the top four divisions so does it not make more sense to call them 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th??
Well rant over now for the promised lighter side of the game,,,,,,,,,,,,
