TUESDAY was a pretty exciting day – the Racing Post's antepost pullout hit the shops and I've spent hours pouring over the stats, transfer ins and outs and team verdicts.
I don't use it for the tips – just the info – and I already had an idea about who I was picking to win the leagues in England and Scotland and will finalise my picks between now and the weekend.
The Post's verdicts on the Premier League suggest it's a two-horse race between Chelsea and Man City although Man Utd are given a sniff. For me Chelsea will be the team to beat after Jose Mourinho sorted out last season's problems with some astute signings.
In the Championship I've had my eye on Derby and again they are well quoted but it's a tough league to pick a winner.
Preston each way in League One and Portsmouth and Luton in League Two are the lower-league sides I'm likely to back.
In Scotland I picked four out of four champions last season but it wasn't that difficult and all were favourites.
Celtic are again unbackable in the Premier League so take Aberdeen to win without them. Rangers should edge out Hearts in the Championship and I can't see past League One favourites Dunfermline who have bought well and started the season with two good wins.
That leaves League Two and it's the toughest to call. East Fife are the favourites and Barry Ferguson's Clyde are being backed but I may have an each-way punt on Albion Rovers – or not touch until a few weeks into the campaign.
So with the new league season days away let's hear your thoughts and I'll put up my recommended bets on Thursday or Friday.
