Result of the weekend in the Football League?
The Football League is under way - and how.
I wrote our live coverage of the Championship on Saturday and there was a point when I was completely and utterly at sixes and sevens.
It came at approximately five minutes past three as goal after goal smashed into the back of the net. There were seven of them in the first six minutes. I fully hold my hand up here - my fingers could not simply type fast enough to keep up. If you were reading and felt that some of the goals were a little lacking in detail then I can only apologise.
It was great to actually be covering league football again after weeks of speculation and meaningless pre-season friendlies. It felt, and indeed was, real. There were games that left managers seething, pleading for patience or dampening the burgeoning fires of expectation. OK, there are still 135 points for each Football League team to play for but the three available over the weekend meant something. They will still be there at the end of the season when winter has come and gone. They might just make the difference between promotion or a heartbreaking near miss, relegation or survival.
If you were out and about watching your team over the weekend I'd love to hear some of your stories - what made you laugh, or feel ever so slightly self-satisfied or perhaps incandescent with rage.
I think the avalanche of goals and surfeit of late goals - think Birmingham, Bristol City and Brighton - made it a weekend rich in drama and hinted at a season rich in entertainment and excitement.
However, if I had to pick a game of the weekend for each division I would go as follows.....
Sheffield Wednesday defeating Burnley 4-1 at Hillsborough is well worthy of mention, especially given that the Owls lost their first six Championship fixtures of the 2007/08 campaign. Preston can be pretty pleased with their win at Portman Road as it came against an Ipswich team who lost just once at home in the league last season.
But for me the result of the weekend in the Championship belongs to Doncaster, who won 1-0 at Derby County. It might seem a slightly obvious choice but I think generous plaudits should go to Sean O'Driscoll and his newly promoted team. O'Driscoll is a softly-spoken and unassuming manager, the complete antithesis of those who engage in verbal spats and unsavoury touchline posturing. You almost have to strain to hear what he is saying. Clearly, he is more than happy to let his team do the talking out on the pitch.
Donny play attractive football that is pleasing on the eye and by all accounts they remained true to their principles at Pride Park. Rovers went to a side who played Premier League football last season, held their nerve in front of 33,000 fans and achieved a result that should answer any questions they may have had about their ability to perform at this level. Not that I expect Rams boss Paul Jewell will see it that way. When his team were relegated months before the last campaign ended he promised that they would bounce straight back. Now he must deliver.
Oldham manager John Sheridan was the first to roll out the line that "it must have been good for the neutral" after his team's 4-3 win at home to Millwall. The Latics trailed 3-1 with 16 minutes remaining before a salvo of three goals in 11 minutes changed all that. Oldham have been peddling largely lower mid-table finishes in League One since they were relegated into that division at the end of the 1997 season but I think they might have a real dig at promotion this time around.
Life in League Two started sweetly for Aldershot with their 1-0 victory at Accrington. My brother was based in Aldershot when he was in the army waaaaaaaay back in the decade known as the 1970s and developed a soft spot for the Shots. It has been a long road back for the Hampshire club since they went out of business in 1992 but it is good to see them back
However, for the opening day thrashing who can look beyond Dagenham & Redbridge, who demolished Chester 6-0. True, Chester have a pretty ordinary record at Victoria Road and lost skipper Paul Linwood to injury during the warm up but even so finding yourself on the wrong end of six of the best on the opening day of the season really does crush all the pre-season optimism. It is very much a case of back to the drawing board after one game for boss Simon Davies. Of course, even after taking a 6-0 beating, it is perhaps worth pointing out that City are only fourth from bottom. The heavy points deductions dished out to Rotherham, Bournemouth and Luton mean that Chester, or indeed anybody else, will have to suffer a lot more defeats before relegation becomes an issue.
Daggers fans must be buoyant, though manager John Still seemed to have everything in perspective. "I was pleased and obviously cannot complain," was his rather understated assessment.
But please do disagree with my choices, succinctly explain why I know nothing at all about what I'm talking about and tell me what really were the results of the weekend.
