History Repeating

As we move into 1999, it’s a case of de ja vu as some of Scotland’s most average clubs decide my players are the ones they want. Division 2 is still difficult but the Premier League has branched out a bit. Why am I angry? Let’s find out.

One man who is probably in a worse position than me is Roy Hodgson, who is Alan Sugared out of Blackburn

bradbury to arsenal gallen to chelsea tony sheridan to arsenalSome of London’s biggest clubs going out of their way to make themselves look ridiculous. There are some reputable transfers at least

Besides, look what has happened again

fa cup 4th round vs newcastleNewcastle of course have Tomlinson up front, paired with Michael Laudrup. Obviously.

darlo 1 - 3 newcastleWe take a first minute lead but Tomlinson equalises and it’s largely downhill from there. Still, we’re getting closer, kind of.

In the more realistic world of the Windscreen Shield (yeah.) we’re in the Area Final

JPT area finalUnfortunately we lose over 2 legs to Chris Waddle’s Burnley. If you think that’s bad…

man utd recall notmanFor what reason!?!? You do not need him, you shits. So that’s him gone and a chance for young John Ritchie to make a claim for a permanent place.

ritchie to dundee utdOh come on man Dundee Utd, you already took Mainwaring.

dundee utd macdonaldJerks. Billy Mac, who goes on to star in Love Actually is the latest to be poached. It’s turning into quite a transfer deadline week. I’m short of options to say the least now

beattie to darloWhoop-de-bloody do. Here’s how the Division 2 table sits with just 8 games to go

Division 2 top march 99It’s tight like a toiger with just 3 points between us in 5th and Bristol City in 12th. It’s feast or famine for Darlo, with only 6 draws. The defending has been pretty poor, to say the least, at times.

Anyway, my troubles aside the League Cup Semis throw up two local derbies

LC SF resultsMan Utd/Everton will be quite the average final. The FA Cup also has some oddities

FA Cup SF drawCarlisle take Boro to a replay at Brunton Park but Boro run out comfortable 3-0 winners, so it is they who face Chelsea in a repeat of the 1997 final. Looks like Man Utd/Chelsea again…

In the Champions League, Man Utd knock out the holders

CL QF ResultsAjax taking out Real Madrid is interesting, and I think Fergie will be happy with the Semi Final draw

CL SF drawOne thing he won’t be happy about is not being top of the league

prem top march 99With the games in hand though, they are actually on for the Quadruple. They only managed the treble in real life, so that’s some history for you.

Meanwhile at the bottom, Newcastle have one solitary win.

prem bottom march 99Somehow, Dalglsih holds on to his job. I don’t know how, but they seem to like not winning.

So we live in hope that my Scots reject Scotland…but I doubt it. Join us again, won’t you?
