In with the new...

England's quarter-final exit seems like an age ago now after an amazing summer of sport with the Olympics gripping all of the office.

We are looking forward to welcoming Greg Rutherford and his gold medal to the sofas this Saturday - although we were equally impressed with Boris Johnson's moves at the closing ceremony. We're sure he could give some of us a run for our money in the dance-off!

Baby Elvis got to experience a few of the events first hand including the women's volleyball, men's street cycling and the boxing. He also got to witness Mo Farah's 5,000m win from inside the Olympic Park.

It wasn't all great though after a week in Gibraltar with 'Big Robbo' and he came back with salmonella: "It was intense... I spent a week on the bog."

Curly was one of the biggest jet setters in the office over the summer taking in the sights of Vegas and LA where he got to see David Beckham and the rest of his LA Galaxy teammates take on Portland Timbers: "There is a clear difference in quality but the atmosphere was incredible!"

He also managed to find time to head to Marbella where he spotted Scott Sinclair, Aaron Lennon and Kyle Walker on their pre-season breaks.

The big news in the office from the summer was Lisa getting married which is sure to break many football fans' hearts up and down the country.

The new Mrs O'Grady ensured that she followed the golden rule of timing her wedding around the season finishing and the Euros ensuring that she didn't miss any of the football. We admire that a lot.

We've brought in a new signing of our own after Trev decided to call time on impersonating cakes and referees but we're hoping we can convince him to return to defend his dance-off crown in January.

We are bringing in Stu. With every new addition to a team comes the dreaded initiation, which has caused much debate in the office. However, a popular theme of Bradley Wiggins keeps occurring and the infamous sideburns... Stu's that is.

We now can't wait for the season to properly get underway with jump-out man Chris having more reason than most after his beloved Saints got promoted. He couldn't have asked for a much tougher start against the reigning champions, but he's confident they can get something from the game - we're not too sure! It's a marathon not a sprint though and we're just glad it's back.

We'll see you on Saturday for our opening ceremony.
