Football, Balloons and Olympics

Less than a month after the World Cup became a memory, domestic football comes back with the start of the football league season this weekend and the traditional curtain raiser to the Premier League, The FA Charity Shield.

Somehow it never seems right playing football on a sunny afternoon in August.  I remember the days when it was August bank holidsay weekend that the football season started, but apparently more time is needed nowadays to fit in all the games. 

This year’s Charity Shield is between Manchester United and Chelsea, it’s a 3pm kick off from Wembley with bth managers and all the players hoping that the game will be all about the football and not the pitch, or worse still, injuries caused by the pitch!

We’ll be live from Wembley with reports on the match from 3 and reports ffrom the second half continue on Harry’s show after us.

It’s also Balloons Over Basingstoke weekend, somthing else that seems to come round alarmingly quickly but it really is a whole year since Harry and I were wondering round in the rain talking to the side shows and watching the arena events.  We’ll we live there this Sunday afternoon to find out what’s going on in 2010. 

Finally, we’ll be talking to some of those with an interest in the Youth Olympics which start next weekend.

Anbother packed show this week, live from 1.30pm.
