The wait is almost over. The Carling Cup 1st round fixtures were released today and tomorrow at 10am the league fixtures are announced. There's always exitement surrounding their release but for me, this season holds special meaning. It's not just the normal pick and choose of a greedy school boy looking for the games to boast to his mates about going to see, it's the finishing touches to a trip that has been planned for a long time.
When the BBC website publishes the games, all else will cease to exist. For the 3 to 4 hours that follow i'll be glued firmly to my computer screen working out what's possible and what's not, which games we can see on the tour and which games we'd like to see. On top of that, we've got to take into account television scheduling and that's not announced until late July/early August i believe, but that wont stop tomorrow taking an eternity to arrive. And then going too quickly when it does...
