We stand at the starting line, waiting for the gun. For a few brief seconds, we believe we can win. Those few seconds can feel like an eternity.
I feel sorry for the younger people today, because they never knew what it was like to start a season, knowing you could win it.
Yesterday we also signed Carlos Sanchez, the Colombian Lee Cattermole. This season isn't going to get any better than the next few hours. Enjoy these next few hours.
Stoke: Updates, team news and banter
So, I'm going to take my own advice. I'm going to enjoy these few hours when I pretend to myself that it's 1984. When the player news comes out, we'll post it here.
There will also be updated through the match. I might even have a bet today, just for fun, but with Aston Villa odds of 10/3 it's a little too much of a risk for me. But you never know it's still early.
So, that's it. I'm leaving you with the video of the day. Do we know this guy?
