It`s a little over a week since our Premier League status was secured; it seems like a life time ago!
If eight days seems like a lifetime, just how long will the wait for next season to commence seem like?
It promises to be a long summer punctuated only by Euro 2008, in which England will not be participating, and the monotony of sports that bore me rigid - tennis, golf, cricket and athletics.
I`ve never seen the point of athletics, running around a track desperately trying to beat like-minded people but if not trying to run a personal best!
As for cricket, no, the sound of leather on willow does nothing for me except send me to sleep, the time-frame of the game itself lends itself to hours of boredom.
As for golf, do me a favour! Grown men chasing a little white ball around the sun-baked courses, ending up in bunkers, let`s just say I`ll stick with the birdies.
And finally tennis, the sport of the upper classes, the cries of 'silence please` punctuated only by the chortling of a thousand chinless wonders as a lost-cause Brit topples out to an unknown seed.
So what are we to do this summer?
Do we while away the time or do we throw ourselves whole-heartedly into Euro 2008?
It could prove to be an interesting tournament, at least being in Austria and Switzerland the kick-offs will be at manageable times.
We may even spot Uncle Roy doing his bit as a UEFA ambassador!
All that remains to be done is to pick a side to follow.
So come on folks, nominate a team for Vital Fulham to follow throughout the tournament, it could turn out to be quite a laugh!
