Gave my Southampton season tickets versus Stoke (oh dear) to band members who played at my birthday bash on Friday 13th ( yes, that very night ! ! ! ). Instead I took advantage of my Eastleigh Town FC season ticket to see them take on bogey team Grimsby. Well as you probably know Stoke won 1-0 (oh dear) and so did Grimsby (oh dear2). other local side, struggling Bournemouth got a battling 2-2 draw at Swansea. Congrats. Pompey did the same at Carlisle. My other really local team in Serie A, Frosinone, lost 4-0 at top place Inter and are still 3rd bottom.
Watched Watford succumb to a very late 2-1 loss to Utd. Watford could have got 4 goals but for the magnificent David de Gea.
Wins for Chelsea, Everton, Leicester, West Brom and Liverpool. Ok West Brom beat Arsenal and Liverpool destroyed City at the Etihad ! ! Klopp gets it right !
Palace play Sunderland Monday night.
Serie A. Had the Juve game on in the background Saturday to see them edge Milan. Roma could only draw. Napoli go second and Fiorentina 3rd Roma 4th.
Bundesliga. Our faves Frankfurt'ssteadying run ended by Leverkussen and top shots Bayern eventually beat plucky Schalke. Dortmund lose and Wolfsburg win (6-0 v Bremen). Ingolstadt win and up to 8th ! ! !
La Liga. Real thrashed by Barca with goals from familiar faces Saurez (2), Neymar and Iniesta. Atletico's win at Betis jumps them to 2nd at Real's expense.
Eredivisie. Top two Ajax and Feyenoord both win and Eidhoven can only draw.
Ligue 1. As France recovers PSG stay top with win at Lorient but Lyon lose at 4th place Nice with Caen 3rd. Emotional scenes at at all the grounds as tributes paid to the victims.
Have spoken with Tony B ( at my Birthday do) and he's up to helping out with the site. We'll be having an Editorial meeting soon and getting Tony au fait with the editing of the updates and he'll be tasked with getting pix from the lads and filling in gaps in the tours. I do want to have a page for every single tour even if it's just a bare minimum review from memory ! ! ! More on that soon as I see on FB that Tony is already very busy in his "retirement", haha.
