I am sure we are all disappointed in going out of the Europa Cup, but be honest, did ‘any’ of you think we would win the penalty shootout? Huddlestone wont be able to play for much longer as he said he wont cut his hair until he scores, he will be falling over his hair before that happens, and the least said about Ade’s penalty the better.
However, the fact remains that even if we do make the Champions League for next season (and I actually don’t think we will), the chances of us getting anywhere are totally remote. Lets face it, we struggled against all the teams in the Europa League this season, getting only draws against most of them – most not even being good enough of our Championship League – and then just got through against a poor Lyon team and then getting knocked out by a second rate team from Switzerland. Lets face facts, if we cant beat teams like Basel, what chance have we against ‘most’ of the teams that will be in the Champions League next season. I think we should be embarrassed to losing to Basel, full stop.
The Woolwich Wanderers get embarrassed every year after the group stages, and we would be the same – if we actually got through the group stages.
I know most of you will disagree with me – and as I have said many times it is only my personal point of view – but apart from the money side of things, what is the point of us being in the Champions League? We have absolutely no chance of winning it, it might be better to try and concentrate on winning the Premiership next season rather than make fools of ourselves in the Champions League.
