Champions League? Overrated
The boys done good, as the adage goes. It might have been a distinctly unexotic first step into Europe’s junior competition yesterday evening, but they were steps plenty big enough for Jim Jefferies and his half-baked Jam Tarts.

Needless to point out, this wasn’t premium rate opposition standing between us and the group stages, or, indeed, was it what you might call a glamorous night of continental football. Of the like we were happily tucking into last year. No sign of those towering stands rammed with bonkers, flare-wielding Ultras; no Ronaldos, Ozils, Maicons or Patos; no adapted Zadok the Priest blaring through the speakers. No need for a passport, even.
