"7th April 2010...The night the ghosts of Munich were exorcised"
How fitting that it was Bayern Munich that exorcised the Ghosts of Munich. And when it was 3-0 I said to the lads at nescafe........NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER WRITE OFF THE GERMANS
France did it in 82 when Giresse and Tresor put the french ahead 3-1.The germans fought back and in the dying minutes of extra time Klaus Fisher hooked in the equaliser. Then in 2006 Jose Pekerman wrote off the Germans. And true to my word the Germans clawed back to 3-2 and DUMPED the MANCS out of Europe. A great thing but more important a great night of European football
The atmosphere at Nescafe was lekker, A good crew, I arrived there 7 minutes later.Looked at the score and said What the Fuck.The Mancs 2-0 up in 7 minutes. Nani the chief architect. Bayern were lost, Ribery,Shweinsteiger,Robben all lost. And then Nani made it three after good work by Valencia on the wing.3-0
And I kid you not you can ask the crew I said to them. Its not Over.Never ,Ever, And I mean Ever underestimate the Germans. Ollic made it 3-1. It just shows how important an away goal is in Europe.
Its precious. Rafael I say is a MUGG because he had Rooney sqaure to bury the tie.All he had to do was pass and then he gets himself sent off. You cannot get red carded in a match of that magnitude. The space then gave Ribery and Robben the freedom and Robben made sure that Bayern advance with a CRACKER. Killa the German man sprung into life ,the whole of the upstairs section of Nescafe roared apart from Seth,Ackalwaya and Jack.....
Game Down......At that point I said let me update the facebook status.But as superstitious as I a I didnt want to Jinx it. With about 15 minutes to go and stoppage time, There was however one fear....The Ghosts of Munich.When the final whistle blew the ghosts were exorcised and the MANCS dumped out of Europe.
Lyon also advance on the night as we now make way for the semi finals ad the path to Madrid
