This has not been a great footballing year for the bond team. There are glum faces all round as our seasons have ended in disaster, to an extent that surely cannot be explained by random bad luck. We have, somehow, displeased the gods of football.
Here’s how it finished for our teams:
– David Fancourt’s Watford – relegated from the Premiership
– Richard Woolnough’s Chesterfield – relegated from League 1
– Dan Gardner’s Leeds United – relegated from the Championship
– My Nottingham Forest – humilated by Yeovil in the League 1 playoffs on Friday night
Which just leaves Stefan, and Liverpool FC in the Champions League final on Wednesday, and explains why a betting man would back Milan this time round.
