Bolt from the Blues

The 04/05 season is coming to a thrilling conclusion, and with my Leeds side still in the hunt on 3 fronts, let’s see how it unravelled. And let me tell you, it really did unravel.

League Cup

It took 120 minutes, but eventually…

LC Final 05Bakayoko wins it at the death and the pointless trophy is mine. Things are getting tricky though, Beckham has picked up a long term injury and we’re struggling massively without him, chances seem to be at a premium. Keane is still very inconsistent and Bakayoko has had a few injuries.

Champions League

You’d think we’d be on a high after the cup final win, but instead we play atrociously and Colin Todd’s team take full advantage

CL SF 1st le

Shameful. Todd’s side were unrelenting but we were awful. That’s all over then, the second leg is a procession for both teams

CL semis resultsFew will have predicted the Bolton vs PSG final but it’s a cracker

CL Final 05Poor Bolton – a valiant effort. I wonder if they will ever get another crack at the big time?

Premier League

This season has another classic finale. Let me guide you through it

prem top 2 games to goSo with 2 games to go, it’s a great time to be me. My game in hand is at Old Trafford though, so that’s tricky. The goal differences are so close so if I can avoid defeat at Old Trafford, they are out of it and it’s between Chelsea and us. Unfortunately, Robbie Fowler (just back from his leg break) scores in a 1-0 win and makes it all very tight

prem 1 game to goChelsea host Newcastle whilst I go to Coventry. If we both lose, Man Utd would steal it with a win against Leicester. To make matters even more exciting, look at the bottom of the table:

FA Cup final 05Very comfortable in the end. It’s a season of disappointment for Newcastle though as they are beaten in the UEFA Cup final too
