I’ve taken slightly more notice of the Champions League matches this particular week, which doesn’t take much!

My interest normally lasts until Manchester United, or any other English club, put one past the increasingly unheard of Eastern European club and go marching on to whatever round.

As the Manchester clubs had Champions League matches in between our meeting the two of them, I took slightly closer interest. I found that Man City looked dodgy at the back and i found that Man. Utd. looked…dodgy at the back!

Is the spirit of ’72  (last time UNITED won at Old Trafford) blowing in the wind?

Enough of daydreaming, I then came back down to earth and went to bed happy that both of them had their Champions League progression now in the balance after dodgy results/performances.

Of course the thought police (Sky, newspapers, rubbish radio stations) want to hang you for treason if you don’t support ‘our’ teams in the Champions League.

Hang on, so we are supposed to want those English clubs to get even richer and more powerful..you’re having a laugh!

Is it treason to want all English clubs to lose in Europe or am I not alone?
