It's been a while but we are back and ready to go for the new season. We've done some tough
training and fitness work and now we're ready for the off.
So, the season starts this weekend, and this is the traditional time for predictions, so here we go:
First managerial casualties:
Gary Megson, to pave the way for Big Sam's return
Swiftly followed by Paul Ince as Blackburn sell all their good players and/or the media hound
him out of the job
1 of the 3 promoted managers to be shafted Derby-style. Which worked out well.
First Red Card:
El Hadji Diouf spits the ball into the net with some powerful phlegm, and celebrates by beating a woman stewardess. Keane is disappointed but these things happen in football.
First verbal Assault:
First Tabloid-Mooted Lawsuit:
Gary Neville & Wayne Rooney celebrate a goal in front of the Kop, a class action suit for mental distress is considered by Scousers
First Tabloid 'Sex Shame' Expose:
Distraught by his failed Liverpool move, Gareth Barry, asks Frank Lampard for advice on jazzing up his love life, with predictable consequences
