Got back about 9:15 last night. Enjoyable trip, on the whole. Well, with the exception of trying to find everyone to give them their tickets before the game. Could moan about that for a while. And the flight was delayed an hour coming back. But the trip was really good on the whole.
I’ll take a 1-0 away 1st leg, but I’d have said a draw would’ve been more fair. They missed a couple of chances they could have done better with. And so did we (guess who?). But we expect that fom him.
Yesterday was a great day. We went back to the stadium to get some photos only to find the gates at the side open as the guys were removing all the Europa hoardings. In we went. Loads photos on the pitch etc, then we went into the dressing rooms. Spent 3 hours at the ground. The ground is a dump. We were watching the Sparta team train on their training pitch next to the stadium. It’s a shithole.
But really good trip. Lovely food, too. Befoire the game we had a lovely steak in the old square, then yesterday we had pork knuckle. Happy days.
