Well, it's good to be back! I've been away for a season - did anything big happen while I was gone? - and I'll be in-shape and prepared for the new kick-off just as soon as I've shed the uniform of the alter-ego that Lady B likes to refer to as 'Captain Olympic'.
For indeed, Blagg IT Ltd has a contract with LOCOG to keep an eye on West Ham's future park, and I'm helping London2012 run smoothly with some nifty PC moving and some intricate under-desk cabling. Who needs 100m training when you can bash your head on the underside of a drawer all day?
As you'd imagine it's a bit hectic currently, but just a soon as the world's largest jamboree has left east London and things return to 'normal' - although personally I don't things will ever go back to what they were in this corner of the World's greatest capital city - I'll be back with an outlook for the Mighty West Ham's return to the division that they surely belong in.
In the meantime, I thought I'd start this season off with a glance back to the last and my feelings on the Hammer's season in the Championship that culminated in one of the best day's I ever had following the team, the Play-off win over Blackpool.
Right, uniform on - I'm off the the Olympic Park - those TV pictures don't transmit themselves, you know....
