Gawd, I hate this time of year. No football on TV. No football on the radio. Nothing in the papers about football.
Andy Cole, Robert Earnshaw, Joe Garner, Mickael Darnet and Guy Moussi have all walked in the door at the City Ground over the summer. Everton were held to a 1-1 draw last week, and we've had a string of wins in the pre-season friendlies.
It is now beyond doubt that we will be playing Premiership football in 2009-10 (and in the Champions League a year later).
14 days to kick off - Reading (h) - 10/8/08. 1.15pm.
