'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Best could yet be to come

I think we have all pinched ourselves several times over the past week just to make sure that we haven't been dreaming. Yes, we did win 10 games in a row. Yes, we did win the play off final at Wembley in front of 30,000 ecstatic tangerine fans. And, yes, we are in The Championship.

The euphoria of promotion, for most, will probably go on all summer, and will be further sparked by the release of the forthcoming season's fixtures a week on Thursday. Pool will line up against PKE, Burnley, Charlton, Wolves, West Brom and Southampton to name but a few - mouthwatering, eh! Some of those 'big' names may see The Mighty as easy pickings. Well, if this is the case, the likes of WBA and Watford may well be left with egg on their face!

You only have to consider Colchester. The team that Larry, perhaps, is aiming to emulate in The Championship. Odds on for the drop, poor ground with only average League 1 gates, the writing appeared to be on the wall for The U's. I myself expected the Essex outfit to finish rock bottom! However, with a remarkable home record ( 11 straight wins from August to January) and prolific marksman Jamie Cureton, Colchester flourished, finishing 10th. So, an exceptional home record and the league's top goalscorer were the keys to Colchester's rise. Why not the same for Pool?

The momentum built up from the end of last season could well be the key to progession this coming season. A confident squad, even more so now Wizard Wes has signed, will hopefully start the campaign as they finished the last.

Why not 'do a Colchester' and take this league by storm and really surprise some teams, pundits and bookmakers alike.

To end on a personal note, results permitting, I shall be attending the University of Central Lancashire in September to begin a 3 year Journalism degree course. Living in the heart of Prescum, I cannot wait to wear my Tangerine shirt with pride as we take 6 points off our local rivals! Bring it on!
