End of another season with the Blues Women's team....
If your season ends, you might as well end in it in style - and that's just what Blues Ladies did in their Last 16 game in Women's Champions League at St Andrew's.
Quick start and 2-0 up on the night, 4-0 on aggregate - it looked like plain sailing, but the opponents from Russia has something else in mind. Two quick goals and it was 2-2 on the night, could this be like last year when the girls lost a 2-0 lead??
After the break, Kirsty Linnett settled the nerves, Kerys Harrop and Melissa Lawley added some more comfort.. as the home team ran away with a 5-2 win on the night.
A mixed season covering the team, Cup runs ended too soon, games in WSL didn't go quite as well as hoped.. but the Champions League campaign is something that has given everyone (me included) a massive boost.
Now the girls head for their winter breaks, some apparently heading to Thailand to enjoy the sunshine... for me, no holidays but more games and travels with work :-)
So - with the end of 2013 with one team... I leave it with this image from last night and interviews with Bass, Kirsty and David.
Many thanks for a season of more memories with the team - hope you'll have me back for 2014 !!
