Aston Villa 1 – 0 Bayern Munich


Rather incredibly, this was the sixth English team to win the European Cup in a row, dating back to 1977 (Liverpool x 3, Nottingham Forest x 2). This is one of those situations where you kind of think ‘well it’s good that this happened, because it’s never happening again’. You know, like England winning the World Cup. One star, count them. Sorry Villa. I do like them, though. They’re one of those teams that always seems to be the underdog, even if they’re the favourites. Being a supporter of an equally unfashionable slash terrible team, I can certainly relate.
