Into the Swing of Things

Having just finished 4 days straight covering Europa League, Championship and Premiership the new season finally feels like it's well underway. I love this time of year as the games seem to come thick and fast with the group stages of both European competitions along with the early stages of the League cup combined with of course the usual deluge of league games. 

And so far the weather has been kind - not too much in the way of rain, but as I look at the forecast for the upcoming week that could be all about to change. 

A small selection of some of my favourite images so far. Hope you enjoy.
