Hello everyone, no need to sit down because this is going to be pretty quick. So I wrote so much about the World Cup before it started but did not write anything here once it kicked off. I did not write a word about the World Cup on this blog for one reason only: there was no need to. The event surrounded us all. Even in places like the USA and India where football is as popular as a Colposcope, every man and their dog were Facebooking or Tweeting about the World Cup.
Today I just want to share my excitement at the imminent start of the European footie season. At 11:30 GMT on Saturday, Spurs vs City kicks off the Premier League and with it the life comes back into me. And into you, my friends. I’m not ashamed to admit it, the big three European leagues (Premier League, La Liga and Serie A) + The Champions’ League provide us the best of club football across the world. You also know it so why shouldn’t we celebrate the start of these competitions? This season promises a lot so I think we have much to look forward to.
If you’re in Accra on Saturday 14 August 2010, then join me and a group of friends to “officially’ welcome the season. And don’t forget to bring the wives/girlfriends to see what’s going to relegate them to second place for the next nine months.
