I’ve watched the highlights now, and also the Milan-Barca game. A sad conclusion – we’re not good enough to win it.
We should get past benfica and enter our 6th ECL semi final in 9 years, but we won’t get past Barca. Even if Milan get a score draw at the Nou Camp and progress I don’t believe we’ll beat them in the semi, either. But we can certainly give it a go!
As for Munich or Real in the final – well, I can only dream of actually making it to the final but we’d need to have a few things going our way to overcome either of them, too.
But we’ve had a good run and I have enjoyed the annual ECL games over the last 9 years – plus the 99/00 year, too. The UEFA cup wasn’t so good after that year, and I’m not looking forward to some of the small ex-military airports and small ground we may be visiting next season, either. It really is a shame we won’t be in it next year. Bar a miracle or four, of course. I wish I could be more positive. Sorry.
Up the Chels’.
