Sevilla Threat

Last time out I made the move from Real Madrid to Sevilla, opening up a whole world of play on words for the word severe. Aside from that though, it gave me the opportunity to bring success to a club very much on the up, but just how far can this squad go? Let’s find out.

Typically, the Copa del Rey has drawn the top two in La Liga together at a very early stage. I of course played it down, my priorities are elsewhere etc, and this continued when I lost the home leg 2-1. 1-0 down at half time in the return leg I was preparing my “focus on the league” speech but that all went out the window as my buddy Weiser turned the game in an instant.

CDL sf drawIt’ll take something special to win from here, but beating the big two in back to back weekends announces our arrival as serious contenders.

We’re still in the Champions League too! The dullest group ever ends with us progressing unbeaten.

CL GroupThe quarter finals see some big ties but we see off Dortmund, whilst Gerry Francis knocks out Real Madrid.

CL QF ResultsI know how good Darlington are so I’d like to avoid them if possible, though Milan is not a nice game…

Disgusting really that Francis managed Milan to 10th and 11th placed finishes in Serie A and got the Darlington gig off the back of that.

Whilst I’m having fun in Spain, there’s still bad decisions over in England. Liam Daish has been sacked

Villa sack DaishDaish leaves with a UEFA Cup runners up medal. Villa have to dig deep to bring somebody in

The pointless cup is full of goals – Gerry at it again.

LC SF ResultsMark Hateley is the Wolves manager, who managed Hull right back in the Division 3 days. Wolves have emerged as Darlo’s main rivals this season, and they’ll meet again in an FA Cup replay

FA Cup SF DrawDavid Unsworth has done remarkable work at Liverpool, they sit 5th with an FA Cup semi final to come. Steve Gritt is at it again with Hull, they lost in the final last year and of course Gritt remarkably won the cup with Southport, so he obviously bloody loves the FA Cup.

The top of the table is close between the top 2, but it looks like a very dull day out at Wolves.

prem top march 09You must fancy Gerry to win it again, what I’ve created at Darlington scares me a little bit now that they are managed by the mullet king. It’s so tight between 3rd and 9th, if Milne can win a game in hand they could climb 6 places.

So with the 08/09 season coming to a close, what will happen when an immovable object meets the unstoppable force? And which one is Sevilla in that metaphor? We’ll find out next time, so you’ll need to join us for that
