2 Days Until the Season!

  As we’ve awaited this moment all summer. Well I say summer, as British weather has been grim at the minute.

As just two days remain until the football season gets underway, every football fan is excited, and ready to watch their team preform for the 1st time this new upcoming season.

As fresh faces are in our squads and maybe some teams have new managers to look forward to seeing, also meeting them. 

One of the main highlights of this upcoming season is that The Football League Show has changed from BBC One to Channel 5 where they are set to release new presenters on the show. Also a completely different set out. As many football fans including me are excited about this. Also will be on our TV’s at an earlier time of 9PM. Instead of 11:30PM as previously shown on BBC One last season.


Today, I went to collect my ticket for our clash against Championship side, Burnley this coming Tuesday, where we play the Northen side in the Capital One Cup, 1st leg. This will be our (Vale’s) first game of the season, at Vale Park. For tickets just £5 for Cons and £10 for Adults. 

 Then a week later….

I also went to collect my Swindon Town ticket for the 18th of August, which is on a Tuesday night.  

As I previously said in a blog post, I have never visited Swindon’s stadium before. And this I am excited about.

This will be my 1st away game of the season, and I am hoping to complete all the rest.


I will also publish another blog post before this coming Saturday – Where the season will be underway. 

Thanks for reading! ⚽️


Nadal Clinches Hamburg Title

Rafael Nadal defeated Italian Fabio Fognini 7-5 7-5 to win the Hamburg Open and clinch his third title of the year.
Nadal, playing in his first tournament since Wimbledon, had already lost to Fognini twice on clay this year.
But he won a tight final that saw 12 breaks of serve to extend his run of having won a European clay-court tournament every year since 2004.
It is the 67th singles title of the 29-year-old’s career and his third in Hamburg, where he last won in 2008.
“It was a very tough final, it is an important title for me” said Nadal, who suffered cramp as he tried to conduct a post-match interview on the court.
Nadal, who has suffered from injuries this season, had not competed since he was knocked out of Wimbledon in the second round by qualifier Dustin Brown.
The Spaniard squandered a 3-1 lead in the final set but saved two set points before finally defeating the eighth seed in two hours 34 minutes.
“It was a great match, many great points, many breaks, we fought hard,” added Nadal, who now has 47 titles on clay and will move up to ninth in the world rankings on Monday.

After an unsuccessful run in other big grand slam events, including Wimbledon in the summer, 2015…

Nadal is finally back to his best? Maybe this is it, and his bad run has came to and end.

As we know, Nadal has it in him to become Number 1 again, if he goes on a clean run.
