Girondins de Bordeaux - a vintage year?

Another excellent result last night takes Laurent Blanc and his men into the quarter finals of the champions league.

Sadly I messed up my diary dates and was too late applying for tickets to the match last night.  ITV decided not to show it so I watched the game on Canal+ and a cracking match it was too.

The draw for the next round is on Friday and I'm hoping to avoid three teams.  Bayern Munich because having thrashed them earlier in the competition Murphy's Law says that they would knock us out, Lyon because they're coming good and on a high and CSKA Moscow because everyone thinks they're a soft touch.

That leaves Barcelona, Man Utd, Arsenal and Inter Milan.  We would be huge underdogs against any of them but that's no bad thing.

We're still under the radar (despite a record of P8, W7, D1, L0) but in years to come folks may well be looking back on 2010 as a truly special vintage.
