Posts Tagged ‘UEFA Europa League’

Ducky’s Note: The volcanic ash and its havoc on air travel in Europe has thrown up a lot of opportunities for the European big boys to make some much deserved road trips across Europe. Hence, in spite of being the Manc on this site, I simply had to take this opportunity to nod to one of my favourite bands, RHCP and their immemorial song – Road Trippin. So here goes, Rafael Benitez’s version of the song, while on the 1200-mile trip to Madrid.

Note 2: For best results, play the original song and sing along, like a Karaoke. Allow for some minor meter corrections though 🙂

One of those things that I never understand is how we lost to Lille at first leg. Frankly I see them as the Portsmouth of French Ligue 1.

Watching the Europa league is a weird experience. Be it for the Anfield faithfuls or those thousands of miles apart watching it on their telly. To start with I have never watched live footy on a thursday night. Or technically friday morning in which case uttering the phrase “Thank god it’s Friday” makes it even weirder. Last time this year, to be precise, we were at the place where Lyon are now, ripping Real Madrid apart making a clown of them. The 5th referee was another weird distraction and you simply can’t wait but wonder when he’ll do a Beach ball. And what is to be utterly weird is the fact that we are playing a team whose name is not only unheard of but also practically un-spellable until atleast three attempts even by the standards of those Indian-born spell bee champs.
