Okay. Cast your minds back, to when Brendan was gaffer, and we were just starting out on our Europa League journey. Drawn to play Rubin Kazan, Les Girondins des Bordeaux, and our opponents for this particular game, FC Sion, of Switzerland.
We were coming into this game on the back of hard fought 3-2 win over Aston Villa, and were hoping for three points from this match, after starting our campaign with a 1-1 draw, away to the Frenchmen of Bordeaux.
Would we do it?
Here are the pix from that night!
FC Sion celebrate their equaliser
So, the game ended in a 1-1 draw, which left us in 3rd in a table that we would end up topping, after all six games had played out (two wins, four draws. Job done!)
It was good to get some guests in, as well, for a change! LOL!!
Anyway, I think that pretty much wraps up the first half of season of 2015/16, and what a incredible first half it’s been. Brendo getting the can. Jurgen coming in. Away wins (who am I trying to kid? Destructions!!!) at Chelski, & Sh*tty. Qualification for the EL knockout stages, and progress to a League Cup semi-final against Stoke!!!
Makes you wanna tune in for the 2nd half, doesn’t it?
Anyhoo, for now, YNWA. Always. J4T96-GBNF.x
Oh! And even though I will be around between now & then, HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
