I am definitely coming down with the tell-tale symptoms of football withdrawal; mild depression, blisters on my fingers (from re-playing Metal Gear Solid for the 8th time, you know… when Ocelot tortures Snake and you have to franticly tap survive), and the fact that I seem to be enjoying tennis. There are no known remedies to this ailment, the only thing that is keeping me going in this dark period is the geomagnetic storm building overhead containing a soon to be “active” transfer window, and an impending joyous pre-season schedule.

It is summer, the time of year that association football fans scour for knowledge of any potential transfer targets their club may be after. Some rumours may be exciting, some may be slightly depressing and some may be so ridiculous; you would rather read news about the annual supporters’ cup in Scandinavia.

I hope that Owen Coyle is on his holidays in Mauritius, or Paisley, and perhaps enjoying an easy reading chapter based novel by Dan Brown on the beach, or on the Braes, and not taking notice of the managerial goings on of the Premier League. He has always said that if any of his players had ambitions to go onto bigger and better things, he would not stand in their way, and I can only assume his own ambitions are ruled by the same philosophy.
