We’re well into the 2004/05 season now and Leeds are holding it together whilst the rest of the football world is falling apart around us. Why you ask? Let’s find out.
After running the gauntlet of Real Madrid, PSG & Celtic for a Champions League group, and remaining unbeaten throughout, I was surely deserving of a decent Quarter Final draw. Wrong.
Interesting to see that Bolton have joined us in the last 8, what a treat. They’ve got a much better draw again, too. Whatever. It goes from bad to worse for Real Madrid as Ronaldo is crocked
Competing in the league & Champions League means I have no real need to be in the league cup and have been actively trying to get knocked out by playing my reserves. However, it seems to be harder than it looks
Enough of that though, it’s Champions league time. Decent enough 1st leg result, but going to be tough at the Nou Camp.
One cup I’m not involved in is the FA Cup after a very early exit. Here are the semi finals
Tony Adams’ Chelsea are the leaders as they continue the recovery they started last season. Arsenal are still in there and Forest are not far behind them, though they have Guardiola in centre midfield which is ridiculous. Also, Stuart Pearce is their manager. Villa have fallen way off the pace, but Brian Little does what he wants.
It’s a very tight table with, with 6 points separating 11th down to 18th. The bottom 2 are already slightly adrift and incredibly Liverpool are also down there. It’s going to be a real dogfight to the end of the season.
To finish on a different note, Riccy Scimeca had a 2 week jaw injury. It’s escalating and he’s now at 2 months out. I’m worried he’s had what Ken Griffey Jr drank in the Simpsons and he might never recover…
Join us next time to see if I can retain the Premier League and if Scimeca can chew again
