Firstly, for today's completely inappropriate comparison.
With little action in the past couple of weeks, it's fair to say had this blog been somebody on a life support machine it would have been switched off due to no signs of life.
However, with the new Football League season just two tantalising days away, Soccer AM/MW is about to explode back into your lives like some kind of Japanese city killing machine.
Okay, so that's two completely inappropriate comparisons.
Anyway, over the next couple of days your intrepid trio will be sticking their necks out in a foolhardy display of bravado and seeing just how accurately they can forecast the coming season.
And every week, we'll be trying to guess how our respective teams - Preston, Nottingham Forest, and Boston, will be doing. As the latter don't kick off their season until the 15th, it's just PNE's game at home to Bristol City and Forest's trip to Reading we'll be having a go at.
We'll also be taking a look at the BBC's coverage of the Football League as the highlights package moves into Auntie's possession for the next three seasons. And a full preview of our featured league - the Conference North - is also on its way.
Christmas just came early.
