Come on! Get into the new season! Links and videos!

I'm not going to lie, this 2 Good 2 Bad clip has it quite right.

The brand spanking new 2009/2010 Premier League season couldn't have kicked off with more drab and dreariness. While everyone else is feverishly typing up long drawn out first weekend EPL match reports, I cannot help but notice the obvious lack of excitement and energy in the air. The look on Roy Hodgson's face is pure misery, after what, the first game!

It seems though as if everybody is slowly rolling out of bed, half bleary-eyed half still dreaming of summer transfer fantasies, not wanting to wake up to an entire 40-week season. Can we not just fast forward and skip ahead to the good bit of it? Even with all of this hullaballoo, many still think it's still going to finish the same old Manchester/Liverpoool/Chelsea/Arsenal. For example, here. And here, here, and even Yahoo! Answers. Why go through all the long drawn out bit when we already know how it's going to finish. Oh, wait. There's always that one guy...

Check out Kirk's new tattoo. Yes, that is the Champions League trophy inked on his right gun, accompanied with the legend "Manchester City 2011 Champions League Winners".

Bradley expains his tat: "While I was in the pub one night I was saying how I thought we'd win the Champions League next season and my friend turned to me and said 'If you're so sure why don't you have it tattooed?'

Yes! Why not have something ridiculously untrue permanently tattooed to your arm. Though really, he's only predicting a top four finish for City this year. The Champions League 2011 business, well he might be onto something.


You know what I mean. But, I for one refuse to take the new season with such dreariness (with exception to that City fan). Come on! Get excited! We are the cusp of a new beginning. This is a fresh chapter in history, a chance to write your names in the permanent ink of triumph or failure! (pun intended)

With intentional naiveté, I await the unknown surprises that may unfold. Maybe this is the year Fulham and Villa get into Europe. Or as Drogs has promised, this could be the season that Chelsea play entertaining and attacking football. Let us welcome the overexpectation of failure, like any true lillywhite.

This could be the season I no longer have to be tortured by horrible mindless UEFA Champions League commentary from Tommy "The Onion Bag" Symth.

Most importantly, this season holds the promise that Jimmy Bullard can finally quit acting like such a buffoon on and off the ball, and properly fulfill his tactical responsiblities.

How could I expect any less? It is after all, a new season!
