Is it really almost three months since we were all at Wembley? Apparently so...
Regardless, the 2012/13 season kicks off today with West Ham back in the Premier League thanks to Ricardo Vaz Te's last-gasp winner against the Tangerines at the home of English football.
And first up for Sam Allardyce and his new look squad - strengthened this summer by no less than six new faces (eight new signings in total) - are Aston Villa, now managed by Paul Lambart who replaced Alex McLeish in the summer, at the Boleyn Ground.
For those unable to attend in person, live updates from Upton Park will be provided throughout the afternoon on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=142527.
Meanwhile a number of unauthorised sources are likely to be streaming the game across the web.
As usual, you use these at your own peril but any available audio or video feeds will be listed in our 2012/13 season streaming thread at www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=141602.
KUMB.com will, as always, bringing you match summaries at both half time and the final whistle, with the thoughts of both managers to follow this evening/tomorrow morning and those of the opposition fans thereafter.

''Did you see that? West Ham bossing a game to its close with absolute ease after going 1-0 up? And not with a nervous touch in defence in sight? Never thought I would live to see that! The BSF was evident. May it long continue.
ps. Don't you just hate pre-season, staring at the table with no games played and sorted alphabetically? Envy those supporting team starting with letters above W...''
