On the ropes
Yet couldn’t knock them down.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Going bravely forward
With one last effort
To raise their final hopes.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Iniesta….. nailed us
One shot and we were out!



People were still talking about last nights game, down the underground this afternoon in London. Even thinking about it today, it’s right up there alongside the recent four all draw with Liverpool, as one of the truly great matches, I’ve witnessed. With both teams really going for it.

Forget about all the other rubbish. Though I’m sure the authorities won’t be able to and rightly so.

It was to my mind a cracker of a contest. We did what we had to do out there in The Nou Camp, defend. Or they’d have slaughtered us.

Then they came over here to us in London and did what only they know how to do, better than anyone else I’ve seen this season or for quite sometime come to think of it, Attack, attack, attack. Which lets face it in their case gets results and once again fair play to them for that. As they’re a terrific advert for the skillful all out attacking game that’s so rarely seen in The Premiership, these days.

Phew, just getting me breath back and it’s the next evening.
