CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NEXT SEASON?

Well a hard fought 2-1 victory at Palace last Saturday evening, followed by the 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool see’s us on the verge of CL football next season.

Just 1 point from the last 2 games will suffice, but we shouldn’t be looking for only 1 point, lets get Arsenal turned over and then have a great week-end at Hull

There were a number of members who stayed over after Palace last Saturday evening and a great day was had by all. Some people flew, others drove but the bulk were on the train

For Hull away, it has been decided by some members to go to Hull on the Saturday evening, we have booked rooms in the Holiday Inn Express for the Saturday evening and back on the Sunday after the game, other members prefer to stay over on the Sunday evening, so we are a split camp, but sure we will all meet up before the game for a beer

CL 4th round qualifiers, should we finish 4th are to be played on 18/19 & 25/26 August, anyone thinking of going can they please get in touch to express an interest so we have approximate numbers for flights and hotel rooms

FOR THE LOVE OF UNITED

City at home, Chelsea and Everton away, a total of over 3,000 miles in 15 days, what am I thinking about. Each trip meant 2 flights home, train hotel and plane back for city, overnight stay for Chelsea and a mad dash from Goodison yesterday back to Manchester airport to get the 17-20 shuttle and connecting flight to Madrid, which we just made. Another day of liquids from breakfast time, which is fast becoming the norm.

It all started of well, beating city at home, made the journey back ok, even if I didn’t get to the hotel til 22-00 hours and was up at 4 the next morning to get the 6-20 to Madrid

Chelsea, easy trip, thought we played really well, with the injuries we had and were very unlucky not to get something from the game

Came to Everton with the high hopes of getting something if we played like we did for the past 4 games, where did it go wrong. We didn’t get into the game, we were harried and hustled for the 90 minutes, may have been different had Fellaini scored soon after Everton took a 1-0 lead, but it wasn’t to be.

4 games to go, West Brom at home, followed by Palace away, Arsenal at home and the last game of the season Hull away. So about another 3,000 miles and we have cracked the season,

Not going to add up the cost of travel for Lise and I, but I am sure it is mind boggling.

Lets get behind the lads on Saturday evening and here’s hoping that a couple of the injured players are back, we just seem to have lost a bit of shape, have a great week and see you all soon
