Another sizzling summer of success has seen the mercury in the sporting barometer soar to the dizzy heights of last season. England are beginning to get a stranglehold on the Ashes series. The Aussies might be down but they’re never out and stinging criticism back home looks set to stir the tourists in to rambunctious Antipodean retaliation. Chris Froome overcame the loss of Sir Bradley Wiggins by storming to victory in the Tour de France. This apparently left a bemused Gallic cycling audience scratching their heads. Typical – like London buses you wait over a century for a British winner then two seem to come along at once. Talking of long waits, Andy Murray finally got the Wimbledon monkey of British backs by crushing all opposition and looking like the natural champion he is. The piles of strawberry and cream washed down with rivers of champagne made for a rip-roaring summer.
With so much summer action the average sporting fan would be forgiven for taking his eye of the ball. Oh wait! Hold the back page! The football season is about to explode in to life for another season of delight and torment. The Football League Championship gets under way this weekend with the Premier League due to kick off a fortnight later. Competition in the Championship is sure to be as fierce as ever. This season it features slumbering giants like former European Cup Winners Nottingham Forest, past Football League Champions Leeds United and previous Premiership winners Blackburn Rovers. All are vying to blaze a return to their glorious days of yore. And if football’s about to kick off that means rugby union isn’t far behind!
