So the annual curtain raiser at Newcastle Town has been and gone, who were the players who got hat-tricks I wondered as I got back from a day out... none it seems. In fact, we were beaten…..and only scored one goal.

It's all too easy to panic and start quoting statistics pairing pre season form with that taken into the league, but this fan is trying his best to remain as level headed as possible.

After weeks of Cricket/Rugby/Golf/Darts hogging the back pages, Football is now making its way back to its rightful place pushing these stopgap sports back through the pages to sit nicely alongside the adverts for the Dirty DVD Shop that is closing down.

James Whittaker James Whittaker is a football writer and ardent Stoke fan. Having moved to Leeds as a youngster his father refused to take him to his local Championship winning side and instead insisted he chose the Third Division team of his forefathers, Stoke City. Since then there has been no looking back and having been brought up on a diet of Dave Rowson, Kyle Lightbourne and John Gayle, is now embracing the dizzy heights of the top flight for the first time in his life. Fiercely loyal, though always welcoming sensible chat and debate, you can find him on Twitter @ESPN_Stoke
