Footie Season

WOO HOO – One Happy Husband – Manchester United won 1-0 playing Benfica at Lisbon, so now they are leading their group in the Champions League. 

a)  Yes, I know most ManU supporters have never been to Manchester, spend more on kit than on tickets and don't even live in UK.  But Husband was born 2 miles from Old Trafford and spent his entire life there until he went to Uni in Birmingham UK (my home town)

b)  The Champions League takes the top teams from the top leagues from all over Europe.  They divide into groups, and play 1 home match and 1 away match, then tot up the points, then (I think) they play knock out until there is a winner.  And that is about the limit of my knowledge, because

c)  I support Birmingham City FC, who have a snowball's chance in hell of ever winning this competition, so I feel I can bask in reflected glory.

d)  ManU still have to play Benfica at home @ Old Trafford.

e)  Away goals count for more, so Benfica have to score more at Old Trafford to beat them.

So, drinks all round folks!
