Following strict rules from The Man - that is, going on strike until September - it's probably time to get up and running again. You all know what happened over the summer and since, so it's not going to all get repeated here. Let's just say it's been heartening stuff.

Thats not bad considering the 90 degree burns from last August will take more than one anniversary to get over.

But were all right. For once, we look like well do the very least we should expect which is better than Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Swansea, Preston, Bristol City, Derby and anyone else lucky enough to scrape another season in the Championship.

Lambos still here, thats the main thing.

The Man loves the guy with every passing smirk. The Championship is his to prove himself in.

And you just dont see him screwing it up for as long as hes here. Thats the big one. How long?

We can all be thankful Premier League clubs are not only rotten cesspits thanks to all that money to fritter, but so insular they keep handing jobs to Avram Grant and Mark Hughes. They just dont get it.

One day the wrong club will come calling. One day Lambo will be off.

But if theres one thing to enjoy now were back in the promising land, its the bloke in charge.

Because hes got it and that means weve got it too.

Forget the character of Ian Holloway and his Tangerine dream, theres only one joke side in the Premier League.

For years Dave Whelan has tricked the world into believing someone in Wigan gives a toss about football by bankrolling their local Conference side.

But even by their standards, taking 60 thats right, 60 fans to White Hart Lane for their game last week is a disgrace.

Whelan probably had to pay them to go anyway not that it would have cost him much.

Whats really annoying is they won the bloody game, but hopefully their time will come in May.

The gut wrenching discomfort of sharing a division with I****** is back in full flow already.

While we look like weve got plenty of fight, theyre threatening to get their act together.

The lack of Rob Roys death stares not only means a lack of amusement, it means hes probably not about to kill anyone for being rubbish.

Which in turn means their doing all right.

Nervous times. The Man prefers us having a division to ourselves.
