    I think they should just stop the league now and give the trophy to whoever is leading.

    Opening day is a banana skin, like Boxing day used to be.

    The bin dippers will be very disappointed.

    Great stuff!

    This should up the tempo of the 'Conte Flounce' rumours nicely.

    And Rooney's scored on 'debut'.

    The wheels have well truly fallen off the plastics cart.

    First Cahill for an early bath, now Fabregas.

    I bet the tiny totts will be looking forward to next weeks home game at Wembley

    This Brighton v Man City game is shite so far (25 mins )
    it's got that retard commentator who just parrots boring statistics one after another.
    And the pitch looks fucking tiny, narrow-wise at least.
    With Brighton parking the bus ....

    Now the stream has cut out

    As Harry said above, you can't predict opening day. The new clubs are on a high, the sun is shining and Fellaini hasn't been booked yet.

    Give it 2 or 3 months before Hudds are getting walloped 4-0 at Stoke on a wet Tuesday night and starting to wonder whether it was actually worth the wait *.

    *Disclaimer: this Wagner fella looks like he knows his stuff.

    Nobody seriously wonders whether it was worth the wait.

    Even relegation in the first season is a huge shot in the arm financially, allowing strengthening for the next time.

    Big betting favourites for immediate relegation, the club and fans will take any positives and favourable results they can get.

    Wagner seems a very switched on guy, correct. Has maintained good relations with the Bundesliga, so maybe a few more players from ze Fatherland might keep us up, who knows.

    Yes, it's not until about the third relegation, with the chairman declaring triumphantly that 'Premier league income with Championship outgoings' is the business model, that things can get a bit frustrating.

    Does it not get a bit demoralsing though, being whipped every week like some clubs have been, when 6 months before you were the ones handing out the thrashings?

    Admittedly, I speak from a cosseted position where my despair only went as far as late 80s mid table ignominy.

    I hope you do well. I'm a football fan first and foremost, but it also helps that your presence in the Prem is pissing off Leeds fans too.

    As I said...only after nigh on a decade of 'yoyo-ing'.

    The natural corollary of wanting to remain in the Championship is going to games wanting your team to lose, though.

    That'd be a bit pointless.

    Tosser in 'The Guardian' today thinks Albion fans were being sarcastic singing 'There's only one Gary Megson'.

    Research can be such a bore.

    I remember when some cub reporter filed a report about fans doing nazi salutes at Millwall and chanting "Sieg Heil".

    Someone had to explain to him that it was Brighton chanting "Seagulls".....

    Some interesting results in the Championship this weekend.

    Cardiff battering Villa and Forest winning 4-3 at Brentford to stay top with Warnock's Cardiff.

    Villa still winless. One of my best mates is a bluenose which will complete his weekend after a win for them.

    That is a tough league.

    He was a good midfielder back in the day. Hero at the Hawthorns, I presume?
