Okay. So this was it. My last game of the season (I couldn’t bag a ticket for the Chelski match), and it was the turn of Enrique Flores’ Watford side to provide the opposition.
We were coming to the end of a season that had seen a lot of change (Brendan out, Jurgen in), coupled with disappointment (Losing to Man Sh*tty at Wembley in the LC final (on penalties!), holding onto a slim hope of qualifying for Europe, based on League position), but also HOPE (the EL final against holders, and overwhelming favourites Sevilla.
I had to see it out with a BANG!!!
And, boy oh boy, DID I!!!!
Anyhoo, it was a match that we needed to win to keep European hopes alive. Would we do it, or would end up being stung?

One last look as I say goodbye for another season.
Unfortunately, as we all know, the three points gained against Watford wasn’t enough to help us into Europe, and that meant that our only hope was to win the EL final against Sevilla. But that wasn’t to be, either, with us losing 3-1 on the night.
I hope to get the main stand tour on before Saturdays’ 1st home game, against defending champions Leicester. But until then as always YNWA. Always. J4T96-GBNF.x
