They say you can never go back. As last season approached its dramatic denouement, giddy with excitement I decided to pick the best Manchester United XI of my time going to football matches (1988-present).
Harry Redknapp has barely had time to roll down his car window and chat to Sky Sports News about his departure from Tottenham, and the debate as to who will replace him at White Hart Lane is already well and truly underway. Below are six possible candidates to replace 'Arry...
He brought good players, good football and good results, but the time was right for Harry Redknapp to leave Tottenham Hotspur.
Like a Belgian waffle and ice cream, or Belgian chocolate seashells (Guylian, preferably) and myself, Eden Hazard and Chelsea should be a perfect match.
Roy Hodgson selected his England Squad yesterday. As I had feared, there were a few controversial selections.
Arsenal talisman Robin Van Persie is set to begin talks over a new deal at the Emirates this week. Following high profile departures in January, Arsene Wenger has made it clear he wishes to extend the prolific Dutchman's tenure in North London beyond the end of his current contract.
Only three months to go to the new season. And we really can believe, again, that QPR are in the Premier League.
Most of us lower division football fans can now relax and start thinking about next season. Start hoping. And planning. We're mostly aware of which players are leaving our club and everyone is after a solid centre half and 20 goals-a-season forward we all think we need to be a decent side next year.
In 2004 a bronze statue of Jack Walker was unveiled outside Ewood Park in tribute to the man who transformed the fortunes of his team.
It's hard to think of an instance in Premier League history of a team's season being composed of two such contrasting halves, but Tottenham Hotspur have a knack of being unpredictable. After an all-conquering first half of the year the wheels didn't so much fall off Tottenham's season but were smashed and burnt.
The assumption with Rooney is that he has to do something special to remind people of his talent - the overhead kick against City or a hat-trick at Bolton for example. Has he truly fulfilled the potential he once showed? Potentially, but not necessarily in the way people expected.
Clint Dempsey is having a remarkable season. The American international is the fourth-highest goalscorer in the Premier League in 2011-12, with 16 goals (so far) for Fulham, and he has scored a further six in cup competitions.
The growth in live broadcasting of British football has brought increased financial rewards for the elite clubs, but has also resulted in a host of ridiculous kick-off times that have left match-going fans in the lurch.
For fans of Manchester United, last night's 2-0 win away at Blackburn was a cause for delirious joy, taking their team five points clear at the top of the table. For everyone else it was a cause for grudging admiration and jealousy of a side that, despite being incredibly average at points this season has an unparalleled ability to produce results.
The Premier League would be a much lesser place without the maverick. From the kung fu kicking of Cantona and hoarding bashing of Temuri Ketsbaia, to the loveable madness of Di Canio and Ravanelli, English football has always been peppered with players who will either leave you in the lurch or fire you to a glorious victory.
Yes, it's time to say good-bye to another Chelsea manager. AVB's departure means it's now mathematically easier to list who hasn't managed Chelsea under Abramovich than who has. So what went wrong?
