Sorry Jordan, none of this long weekend jiggery pokery. It's back to business.
Community Shield goes to City. Not watched the game but some nice goals all around. Pantimillol. Ivanovic red-card...debatable. But to use a cliche, you can see why it was given.
But apparently he's not banned for first team games :s https://twitter.com/henrywinter/status/234950398769774592 this isn't normal is it? Idk.
Carling Cup got underway this weekend, which is odd in itself. Sheffield United victim of a giant-killing, so to speak.
Elsewhere, City continue to ruin football by signing Rodwell, and Sturridge, Hart and the Ox are out of Wednesday's friendly against Italy. I'd completely forgot that there was one on.
Rangers get their campaign underway with a 2-2 draw at Peterhead.
Are we excited for the new season or thoroughly disenchanted? As ever I'm a bit meh atm but come Friday night I will be like a kid on christmas eve, as I always am.
