Well, league wise, at least it is in Scotland. The Charity Shield (I still can’t get used to calling it the “Community Shield”) is over and we’re only a few days away from the kick-off in the English Premiership.
The Summer dearth of football hasn’t actually been all as bad as I had first feared it would be. This season I have more than Liverpool and a fantasy league team to consider – I’ve just bought a football team.
To be more accurate, I’ve actually only purchased a membership of the MyFootballClub Trust that is currently in talks with four clubs (one of which is rumoured to be the mighty Shaymen themselves – Halifax Town, my hometown team).
