I’ve just checked in to my hotel in Munich, where I can finally relax for a bit before I start the pre-gaming on Leopoldstrasse. It’s been a rough 11 days since the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals. Originally, I was only going to fly over if we got the second leg in Munich; knowing that Schweini must sit out the first. But, when we drew United, that plan flew out the window. I’d immediately started clicking through websites to find flights, hotel accommodations and match tickets. Two hours later, my trip was set. And, I’ve spent the last week and a half, working overtime to pay for it all, wondering how I pulled it all together!

Is it bad of me to say the happiest I was during the Fiorentina / Bayern second leg was at 54 minutes? You know, when Gilardino, off-sides, back-heeled to Jovetic to score from ten yards out? Although it wasn’t a glaring two meters off-sides, like the Klose goal in the first leg; it was off-sides, none-the-less. Now, the La Viola faithful couldn’t complain about an unfair advantage.
