Our Triple Cup pursuit is now down to a double after losing the second leg of the Europa League Quarter final 3-2 to Borussia Monchengladbach.
The first leg away ended 0-0, after we failed to capitalise on a few good chances, and we was always then chasing the home leg after Borussia went 2-0 up fairly early on.
Disappointing but to reach the Quarter finals in our first season in Europe was a decent attempt.
Next up was the FA Cup semi final at Wembley vs Liverpool, it was a very tight and tense match, fairly few guilt-edged chances for either side, which forced the match into extra time, but LMF Kluivert pounced to slide under the keeper late on in the second half of extra time to send us into the FA Cup final, where we face Everton.
League form is poor, too many draws and smatterings of narrow defeats have seen us slip down to 10th place, with only one game left the highest we could finish is 8th, no European football next season, which will certainly help fixtures wise, but isn’t good for my manager trust level, after failing to achieve Champions League qualification, as set by the board, got to hope a decent EL run and 2 domestic cup finals go in my favour.
