As we reach the business end of season 13, I know in my heart of hearts my bags are packed and I’ll be leaving Spain come July 16th. Before I do though, there’s a Champions League to retain and a World Cup to win. Can I do either? Let’s find out.
Pointless cup time!
The battle we all wanted to see, Little vs Unsworth, requires penalties to separate them.
Oh my. Unsworth knew a thing or two about taking penalties, but Ben Thornley is the guilty party in a topsy turvy affair.
Maybe Unsworth will fair better in the FA Cup?
Unsworth sees off Le Tissier whilst Waddle sorts out perennial FA Cup pest Steve Gritt. Can Unsworth avoid a second final defeat?
Yes, yes he can. Good job.
So with my Sevilla side unlikely to retain the title, it was Barcelona’s to lose. And so it proved
It is annoying that our rivals Betis take 2nd spot but I will get over it, as long as we win the Champions League.
The semi final lineup wasn’t the strongest it has ever been – considering Inter went on to survive relegation from Serie A with a last day win at Parma, we brushed them aside. Metz averted it being an all Spanish final.
We immediately have somewhat of an advantage
Home advantage, essentially, as I go looking for my fourth consecutive Champions League. Considering my previous opponents, Metz do not worry me.
A 2-0 lead became 2-1 with 10 minutes to go but that doesn’t worry us – job done!
It’s been a memorable season for David Unsworth so far and it just got a whole lot more memorable…
Comfortable in the end – a quick mention for Alex Ferguson’s Everton who take dour to whole new meaning. 20 scored, 21 conceded. Amazing. Also, Gerry. 10th. What are you playing at? At the bottom, there’s nothing exciting:
Tottenham fans, look away now
Division 3 is no place for a club of your size…and the chairman agrees
Poor Vancey. My old pal from Darlington takes his first management job
And this young man makes a move into management, too
That’s it domestically though, let’s catch our flights to Argentina for World Cup 2010
I’ve learnt a little more about my Spain team, which fundamentally lacks a striker but we have enough elsewhere to be a threat.
Glenn Hoddle is still the bloody England manager. Here’s his latest squad
Francis Jeffers has wormed his way in there. Good for him.
It’s a great start to the tournament as the hosts lose to a South American rival.
Oh dear. It’s a mixed bag for Hoddle’s men
My first game sees me go up against Germany, which is as tough as it gets really
My own player, Wesier, gets the winner. We led for 20 minutes as well. Oh well.
England thrill everybody in their next game
England go on to qualify with ease in the end
We’re dealt a crushing blow though, as my main man from Sevilla is out for the tournament. Where are the goals going to come from now?
Look at this for a boring win. Just call me Hoddle
The final team in the group is Trinidad & Tobago…we trail them 1-0 at half time but we come out firing and get through. It is torturous though
Phew. The last 16 draw is tough – worth noting that the hosts Argentina went out without a win.
Having said that, if we can beat Italy the draw opens up a bit. It’s a classic…
Torrente is one of my Sevilla players. Thank you son.
England turn on the style too
Brazil will go no further though, stopped by Croatia.
Pick a winner from the final 8 – I’m pretty happy with the draw at this stage.
Another great performance…
But England…oh England.
I wouldn’t have fancied knocking my own country out of the World Cup anyway, so maybe that’s just as well.
The Czech’s put up a fight but we somehow score twice
Into the final we go, but will it be Germany or the Danes?
Penalties? Well, only one winner there. It means i have to take them on again in a repeat of our opening match
In the meantime though, the Czech’s take 3rd.
World Cup Final day arrives, and we at least take it to extra time but with no goals…an Englishman has to mastermind a penalty shootout win over Germany. Good luck with that.
Studtrucker is a great name though. We’re runners up – somehow. We’ve been utterly terrible but we found a way, then ran out of luck when it mattered most. Nevermind. All aboard the bus for Germany 2014
That’s enough of that

I’ll leave you with the awards
So another season has come and gone. I have no idea where I go from here – I’m probably going to head back to England, but we’ll see. Join me again, won’t you?
