Season Previews

Well the quiet summer period is nearly over and the first game is looming large on the horizon. In the football blogosphere - I think that's now officially a word - season previews have gone mad, with Twitter offering fans the chance to easily interact with each other and get a series of comments on the other teams in the league.

Below I've attached links to a few of the previews I've contributed to for your perusal. Enjoy!

I've got to start with this quite incredible collaborative effort between top football league bloggers @twounfortunates http://thetwounfortunates.blogspot.com/ and @the72Football http://theseventytwo.com/

They have pooled their considerable resources, links, contributors and acquaintances and put together a simply fabulous 108-page, printable blogzine (I'm pretty sure that's not a word!).

Go to either of their homepages and look for the Seventy Two Unfortunates football league preview. More than 18,000 people have read it to date and in blog-world that is quite phenomenal, so print it off and sit back with a few pints of cider to enjoy, it's well worth a read!

If 108 pages is all a bit much for you (although it really shouldn't be), there are Championship only guides also available courtesy of The Hard Tackle http://www.thehardtackle.com/2011/the-npower-championship-preview-part-1-birmingham-blackpool-among-others/

and Reading blogger, The Tilehurst End http://thetilehurstend.co.uk/2011/08/02/the-201112-championship-preview-in-their-own-words-part-1/

Both offer different types of questions and views and both summarise neatly each club's hopes, expectations and throw in a hint of realism.

For a view from across the Severn Bridge check out Nathan Walker's Cardiff blue Army blog http://cardiffbluearmy.blogspot.com/

An additional view comes from the ambitious newcomer on the block, it's Round and it's White http://www.itsroundanditswhite.co.uk/ which will have a whole series of previews, covering just about every club, over the next couple of days.

And if you're really short of time, and want an at-a-glance view, then why not check out the 'Short & Tweet' guide from Burnley's blog website, No Nay Never - each of the 24 clubs summed up Twitter-style, in 140 characters or less. http://nonaynever.net/4896/championship-preview-shortandtweet/

It's nearly here people, the wait is over. Bring on the action!
