So I waited an extra day to write this blog so I could get the result of the match against AS Monaco in the Champions League. We lost the match 1-3. We were at home too. If I had paid money to see that match I would have demanded a refund. Monaco put 3 goals past us which means we have to score at least 3 goals and get a clean sheet in order to advance. Given our record in the Champions league lately means that we are essentially done. Is it still possible? Of course, but anything is possible. It is very unlikely that we will be able to advance now but my fingers are still crossed. It was a pathetic performance from front to back and if we play that way again, we will lose. We play Everton on Sunday so lets just hope we actually turn up for the league matches. As a bonus the Invincibles documentary will air on NBCSN after the match.
That's all I can manage this week. I can write all day about how bad the performance was but I will not. Lets just chalk this up to a bad day at the office and look forward to the weekend. We will see what happens. Stay warm and safe Queen City Gooners as this winter storm moves through.
Let's all find a distraction until the next match: music, video games, reading, alcohol etc. Maybe they can take the pain and sadness away.
