    Congratulations to Harrogate Town who were promoted to the Football League today after beating Notts County in the play off final. They were Northern league part timers not long ago. What a story and what a shame only empty seats witnessed it at Wembly.

    Yes, I'll put a team out.

    Only 12 days until I'm back on the pitch myself. Been a long time and my pre-season hasn't been great.

    umm.. well, you've got 12 days to regain some kind of fitness?

    Woke up with a shockingly bad knee after last night, lol

    Still hurts now.

    Anyway, what a game tonight

    Thomas Muller. The most effective footballer on the planet.

    Chelsea, minus 5 key players, didn't do so badly against BM last week after all!

    Didn't they get their cup back after misplacing it for a couple or three seasons?

    Don’t forget that you can start picking your Fantasy Football team from today.

    The price of players seems to have gone up but you still have 100m which makes it harder to include some of the players I had last season.

    But the leading clubs may not be involved in the first week of the season.

    So City got knocked out and Raheem Sterling had the "miss of the century"

    Oh Dear

    What a shame

    Never mind.

    I'm going to completely change my strategy for next season, its a radical idea but we'll see.

    The FPL is open, so am about to renew the league. If you were in before, you will be added automatically when you do your team. If not, hit me up for the code

    I had radical ideas and secret weapons for fishing a fortnight ago and blanked.

    So - PSG or Bayern Munich??

    My (virtual) money is on Bayern. I just hope they didn't peak in the semi-final.

    Bayern, yes. for some reason, unidentified, i have a slight dislike of PSG. no idea why

    Well done Bayern, and Thomas Muller - alongside John Robertson at Forest, the most effective player I think I've ever seen. Nothing flash, but gives everything and produces the right thing at the right time, almost every time.

    I felt a litle bit sorry for Neymar but only because the schadenfreude I felt at seeing him cry I realised would be shared by upwards of 80% of those watching.
