Have to say this Association Football thing is really pretty good - I defy anyone to point to any posts where I have said anything to the contrary.
At the other end of the scale ... and the country, its been a big weekend in Highlands football.
Brora (pop 1100 - and the biggest town close to where I work) are now top of the Highland league and the world famous 'Kessock Bridge' Derby ended 2-2 in the Scottish Cup
Ah the Kessock Bridge derby - always one of the highlights of the season....
I must echo the sentiments vis-a-vis Association Football. Great night at Wembley last night with my eldest little cruiser!
I have to say the Dortmund supporters (seated just to our right) were incredible. I hope we can generate that sort of noise at our new 'wall'. The away section was just a yellow and black cacophony of sound and colour. The drummers, the flags, the almost constant singing and chanting, the bouncing up and down in unison - really, really impressive. I also think that when the three minute silence broke into applause (in memory of Gordon Banks and Emiliano Sala) it was the German fans that started it. Nice touch.
3-0. Spurs being Spurs, the tie is far from over. With two away goals we were favourites to go through against Juventus last season but somehow Spurseyed that up so I can't say I'm confident. But let's just enjoy it while we can - for two more weeks anyway. And all sing:
"Super, super Jan,
super, super Jan,
super, super Jan,
Super Jan Vertonghen!
What a performance from the Belgian. He really worked well with Toby to nulify Sancho in the second half - and what a goal and assist!!
