Always White and Blue! – Mar/April 2018

Exciting times as we entered the final phase of the season. Amazingly Champions League football was in sight and if we could put together a string of performances then we might be making the big bucks next season. It should also serve to keep some of the players happy who appear to be having their heads turned by some big clubs. Some have signed new contracts for the long term which is fantastic news and Romero was back after a long injury layoff. What could we accomplish in March and April?

Well. What started brilliantly ended up as brown trousers time. We really made it tough for ourselves but we have managed to secure (at a bare minimum) a spot in the qualifying rounds for the Champions League. Ideally we would like to have a group stage spot but we have Red Bull and Dortmund breathing down our necks and our players decided that it was all too hard. As usual, some Romero alpha male dominance allowed us to snatch a point at Frankfurt to secure the aforementioned spot. But, my God… The games against Schalke and Red Bull were utter domination followed by a goal against the run of play. It wasn’t necessarily players badly underperforming, it was just a solid counter attack and a complete lack of finishing on our part. Still, we smashed “Neverkusen” in the Pokal which will lead to…

Wait for it…

Just hold on…

Awwwww yeah! Mouth-watering is right young bucko. It should be a classic.

Only three matchdays left. Dortmund have a game in hand which could make things very tight indeed. We play Stuttgart (H)  and Hamburg (A), with Dortmund facing Freiburg and Bayern, both being away games. Unless my mathematics is extremely faulty, Red Bull cannot catch us so it is between the two of us for that last automatic spot.

This is understandable. I am hopeful that DFB “Filthy Lucre” otherwise known as prize money will help bump that up. Otherwise, being able to extend the loan of de Ligt would be fantastic. He has been immense. Shame that it seems that all I am doing is helping create a ready made player for Ajax when, if my board hadn’t been so stingy, he could have been a permanent signing back at the start of the season.

I think I am pretty special too…

So, 1860 have qualified for the Champions League in their first season back in the top flight. I have the suspicion that one win should be enough unless Bayern roll over and play dead on the final match day. I would put anything past those *********.

FÜR IMMER WEIß UND BLAU!
