Part two of my ongoing uni project is loosely about Camden’s Proud Galleries. I went there to see Manchester Orchestra showcase their first three albums in their last UK shows before the release of Simple Math. Interview / Album Review.
This was also the night that Tottenham crashed out to Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League. As such, my piece is a kind of letter to them regarding their defeat. I hope you like it. Feedback is of course welcome. (Picture wasn’t included)
A Stable Heartbreak
“It’s not me, it’s you, and the eleven others. We had a good run, better than either of us could have hoped just a few months back. When one of us is playing away whilst the other’s left in a converted horse stables drinking a warm beer, it’s not hard to see how I’ve come to this conclusion. This would have been a good night as well had Cristiano not turned up and broken my spirit.
I’m sure you’ll be able to move on and revert your attentions to other things, afterall we were never going to go all the way with this but until something better comes along, maybe next year, I fear I’ll dwell on this. In fairness though, Real Madrid always had the advantage over you Spurs.”
“Why the long face?” asks the Spaniard next to me.
Take care of each other
