Cup Winners Cup9798 – Week 2: The Irn-Bru Cola Cup | @RossBell__

The Blog Squad are in action again with another white hot week of Cup Winners Cup 9798 action. Here’s Ross with the breakdown.

Week 2 is here, I’m suffering with Covid so hopefully Parma can cheer me up this week, we will see.

We start this week with some cup action and as last week I’ll just bring you the human on human action…….

We start with Dean’s Man U ‘91 taking on Philip’s Arsenal ‘94 in the 1st round of the league challenge cup. 2-0 at ht quickly becomes 3 and it’s a comfortable victory for Dean. My Parma team takes on Rob’s Zaragoza boys. It finishes 2-2 at FT and then 2-2 at the end of extra time and I take a 4-3 victory on pens.

Cup Winners Cup9798 – Week 1: Too Many Broken Hearts | @RossBell__

Happy Friday everybody. Here’s Ross with the first of hopefully many reports of what we do on Zoom on a Tuesday night. The preview can be seen here if you need catching up.

158 days, 158 days since we ended CLM9798, It’s been a fairly chill 158 days worldwide. I think we can all agree. The Blog Squad lads are back on Tuesday evening with our regularly scheduled zoom call. I can’t speak for the rest of the lads but for myself the weekly zoom calls we had last year really were a fantastic tool to help relax and honestly it was brilliant for my mental health.

Anyway, we’re going again! This time we have all randomly drawn a Cup winners Cup winning team from 1991 – 2000.

Cup Winners Cup9798 – Meet the Teams

You might remember that last year Nick made all of the Champions League winning teams of the 90s into one wonderful league on the game we all adore. The 10 Blog Squad members met weekly to play out a season in the Scottish Premier Division and Nick brought you the action in blog (and briefly video) form each and every week.

We enjoyed it so much Nick decided to get his editor on again and, with a little help from his friends, created the same from the Cup Winners Cup sides of the 1990s

The Cup Winners Cup has seen some unbelievable teams be triumphant over the years. It does what it says on the tin and pits the cup winners of European countries against one another, a simple concept that was lost over the years and was eventually merged together with the UEFA Cup to make the Europa League. Each and every Thursday, we hope to take you back to these magical 90s nights…but first, let’s meet the teams and managers. Each gaffer has written up their musings on the squad they were randomly assigned, some are happier than others…
