Day 88

The Premiership Starts

Yes, yesterday it was back to business in the English Premiership and there were some very interesting scores. Two to pick up on were Blackpool’s 4-0 win at Wigan which is just about as amazing a dream start as they could have fantasised about and Chelsea’s 6-0 drubbing of WBA.

In the Championship, surprise team Millwall continue to push on and heads the table with a 7-0 goal tally equalled exactly by another surprise team – Q.P.R. At the bottom, it is Proud Preston but I do not expect any of those three positions to last for too long.

Just a plug for my team – Gillingham are unbeaten in the league! That said, they are out of the Carling Cup and four points behind table-topping Torquay.

Good Luck to all.

I took a couple of hours for myself today to think through the next few weeks and the push to the “finishing line” and strolled around Bristol Centre. It’s nice when you are not fully loaded with panniers and everything. I took the opportunity to pass by Ashton Gate the historic Bristol City ground and it was duly ticked off as ground 64….. without too much ado.
