What a night last night. We had a snack in City Square pre match and was joined by a couple we see regularly. Apparently they’d booked with Thomson’s in September for the trip to Rome, but had just been informed that it was cancelled. Ridiculous.
Great start yet again, one nil up and they were down to ten men, so just needed to hold our nerve. 2-1 down and a corner in the last minute of the half. So what do we do? Piss about.
Plenty of good passing by Bayern but few chances. It looked a bit ominous but with a few minutes to go Alonso then Boateng cocked up and Sergio took full advantage to put us 3-2 up on a glory glory night. Whatever happens now we can at least hold our heads up. Looked forward to today’s papers. Surely even the manu/lpool mirror wouldn’t find a negative angle.
Headline is : City spend hundreds of millions ..but are still a one man team..
So there you go, we’ve won the Prem twice, runners up once, the Cup once, runners up once, and the League Cup once, all as a one man team. Phenomenal. Bayer were weakened but we weren’t despite Silva, Yaya, Kolarov, Dzeko, Fernandinho all missing. OK we mugged them, just like the rags when they fluked the Euro Cup v Bayern that time when all the headlines were glory glory man united.
Rags mugged the Arse on Saturday, and the papers reckoned Wenger should resign.
Anyway, we just need a result at Roma, and hope CSKA lose at Bayern. .
