I'm a little confused about Leicester. On the one hand, Musa, Mendy and Zieler are nothing more than decent Europa League signings. Normally, a title-winning side would be torn apart for these kind of transfers...
The Olympics in Rio next month is sure to be a huge spectacle of sporting achievement and success. However, that success won't be limited to the competitors taking part, but will also be true for the new technology being used to capture the event and share it with the world.
Traditionally the West Country and specifically Plymouth wouldn't be the first place that came to mind when thinking about wrestling. London sure, Glasgow - well who hasn't heard of ICW? Maybe Preston in the North or IPW in Kent but Plymouth?
Praise be the gods, club football is almost back! After enduring a summer that was somehow both packed with football and had nothing interesting to watch at the same time, we get to look forward the excitement of the Premier League! I mean if Leicester City - the greatest underdog story ever© - could win it, anyone can right?
The aspects of entertainment that wrestling does not reach are few and far between and so it should come as no surprise that the Edinburgh Fringe, the pinnacle of the comedy calendar, is not devoid of wrestling input this year. Running from the 5 - 29th August in and around Edinburgh Scotland, the Fringe will play host to some of the world's top comedians and other entertainers.
Wrestling's relationship with reality is a curious one. Prior to the 1980s, competitors and promoters alike protected 'kayfabe' - the convention of presenting staged performances as authentic- with their lives.
This week was a momentous one in WWE history. On the first ever SmackDown Live show, the WWE Draft sorted WWE Superstars into competition for either Monday Night Raw, under the new management of the legendary Mick Foley or SmackDown, controlled by the head of the 'Yes Movement' Daniel Bryan. Both Raw and SmackDown will now feature distinct casts, unique storylines and dedicated writing teams. WWE's 'New Era' has truly begun.
If Mourinho can rectify what was Ferguson's greatest mistake at Manchester United, he can save the season before it starts. The pill of a potentially controversial and trophyless year is far easier to swallow when accompanied by the sugary return of a prodigal son. And not just any prodigal son, but one that could quite conceivably go on to become the best player in the world.
The second Test between England and Pakistan beginning tomorrow (July 22) at Old Trafford has acquired a strange tension, which is vastly more intense and different from the buzz surrounding the crowd reaction to Mohammed Amir's return to the stage where he had let the cricketing world down.
'No, not him, anyone but him.' Was this you when Jose Mourinho was finally confirmed as Manchester United manager in May? Because it was definitely me. The former Chelsea boss took over as a proven winner, sure, the man to restore the glory days of the Sir Alex Ferguson era. That certainly appealed to the growing army of modern 'fans' who care only for results and success.
