The Retirement Academy – Part 21: Happy Hour

Ahh the end of Season 7, the most finely poised of the seasons. Granted we are nowhere near achieving our aim of overhauling Ajax at the top of this infernal league but we are above PSV, so that’s a start. I’m not even sure the gap to Ajax is getting smaller year on year but nevertheless, we are still in the hunt for a European place next season either by league position or, if you will suspend reality for a minute, winning either the Pints Cup or the UEFA Cup. I won’t hold my breath.

Happy Monday! For one last time this season, let’s see how Matt is getting on over at AFC United…

The Premier League might be over in reality, but for AFC United, it’s coming up for the end of Season 6 for my motley band of Man Utd alumni. In part 17 we got our act together to mount something resembling a title challenge and we’re still involved in the FA and Uefa Cups, and it’s on the FA Cup where the action picks up…

Derby are our opponents and if the question is David Brown, then they don’t have the answer

AFC United – Part 17: Mind Your Owen Business | @Matt_C_Wills

Good morning and happy Monday. Here’s Matt with the latest from AFC United.

Hello and welcome back to more ramblings from my Man United alumni. We’re a third of the way through our 3rd season in the Prem and after the highs of our title winning season, last year paled in comparison. We are aiming to put that right, but nothing will be instant.

We left Part 16 in the familiar surroundings of 5th in the league but our action restarts in Europe, Portugal to be exact.

We have a nice 5-1 cushion from the first leg so some fringe players come in – yes, Michael Own is fringe when you have David Brown – but he makes his mark in the 13th minute only for To Ze to make it 6-2 on the night. Owen stretches our lead further until some minor panic when Silva and Maniche add further goals either side of a Twiss red, but it’s all Acidemica in the end.
