Summer Season

The football season has only just ended but the madness continues. Papers are full of who's playing who in the first match next season.

It's June for heavens sake. Let's have a proper summer for a change. For example, today one ought to be concentrating on the tennis at Queens. Very soon strawberries, cream and Wimbledon will be uppermost in the English summer zeitgeist. Cricket, with England taking on the West Indies today will keep my father and I glued to the tv. But let's spare a thought for some of the minority sports like archery, speedway, badminton and hockey.

Politics, stock market movements and bad weather can all wait until September.

I must admit I do feel a sense of loss after the end of the season.
Though with Birmingham back in the premiership, there is much to look forward to.

Quite agree. Hate sport but let's at least have seasons if we must have it!

They closed Hammersmith Palais? Bastards!

Hockey a minority sport?? Where's your head, man? If you're Australian, like me, the England and West Indies test series rates below third division football!!

I think you're 12000 miles out.
