The Champions League match last week was one of the most exciting, unbelievable games I have ever seen. You couldn't have made it up!

Cardiff in the play offs again. Happy but not overly hopefull of a promotion.

Phew - what an afternoon that was!  Shocked

Don't think there's been such a frenetic end to the season for many a year.

Congratulations to those whose teams were victorious, and commiserations to those who lost out.  Better luck next year for those of us who maintained mid-table mediocrity!

Now ....... how many weeks until Euro 2012 starts?  Wink Grin

Sooo disappointed for Man Utd! But looking forward to Euro 2012. I have all the Ireland fixtures stored in my BlackBerry. Bring it on!

When does Euro 2012 start she asks??? Dont know and dont care!!! Really I dont. Its a huge waste of money and will become a white elephant when its over. And just look at the ticket fiasco- nearly half of them went to the press and TV stations. Yes I am sporty but dont want to go and see it and will be glad when its all over. Fuss about nothing!!
