Best weekend of my Life and we brought Number 6 Home. What a f**king weekend.
Knew I'd need a few days after that to get back on here and give you guys a quick rundown of mine and Crouchie's trip, from my perspective.
We arrived in Madrid Friday night before the game (Crouchie arrived 1 hour b4 me), dumped our bags at the Hotel about 12 midnight, headed out to get something to eat and a quick beer before getting some sleep for the next days festivities.
Walking back and we run into a big puff of smoke. Happy f**king Days. 2 15 year olds smoking a big doobie which they were ever so happy to share with us!!
Ended up buying some off them to last the 3 days we were in the city.
We took the 3 minute walk back to our Hotel and we were fu**ed.
Up the next day and we head off for our fanzone. Walked past a quiet Spurs one and then a 15 minute walk to our one but you could hear it from 10 minutes away!!
We got a slab of beers and as there was no ice, Crouchie decided to buy a bag of peas
to keep the beers cold. That went down a treat. After a while it was so f**king hot, I put the bag on my head to cool down and the crowd started singing, "He's got a bag of peas on his head!!"
Next we met Dado and his mate Miro and not long after Diego and his lovely wife.
Plenty more booze was bought and drunk as we sang, smoked and smoked
our way through 37 degree heat!!
It was sadly time to say goodbye and let Dado and Miro go on their ways but there was 1 more stop we made before we said good bye , however Diego and his wife did not join us. We met a lovely fella
who gave us something that we consumed in the Burger King toilets. It's like a drink they sell there but it wasn't from Burger King and we didn't drink it!!!
Next me and Crouchie made our way to The Triskel Tavern for the game. We were fu**ed, so drank water for the rest of the night, watched the match nervous as f**k but when first Divock scored, then Jordan lifted Number 6, the place went nuts. We spilled out onto the streets of Madrid for some epic celebrations. (have tried posting a video but not working for some f**king reason!!!). I was smashed and just wanted to sit down for a few minutes and take it all in but my body would not move to get back up!!!
I looked up and there was Crouchie climbing a f**king tree to celebrate.
Got back to Hotel at 4 am and crashed, woke up, said bye to Crouchie as he was flying home but I had 1 more day. Decided to go up to the rooftop of the Hotel where they had an infinity pool. Sat in it with about 9 other lads and a lass who went and got us 2 slabs to drink. F***ing legendary. Smashed again. They all left, so I smoked my last joint and then headed to bed for an early morning flight home.
Madrid to Abu Dhabi was a 6 hour flight but met some lads, 2 LFC and 1 Spurs fan and ended up drinking at the back of the plane for 4 of the 6 hours.
Got off the plane in AD and pretty pissed but ready for my next 13 hour flight home. Couldn't sleep so drank again
and when I got to Customs in Australia, I was wearing my Liverpool scarf and top and the Customs bloke ushered me through from a big line and said Go Reds...go straight through.
Home safe and sound, what a f**king 4 days that was. Made up that I made that trip with Crouchie, will never forget it so thanks mate and a special thanks to Dado as well especially for the pizzas that he surprised us with, in the middle of the fanzone. Honored to have been there with you guys and Diego.
Seriously got the bug now, already booked Holidays and hope to see more of you guys in Istanbul for Number 7! This time we NEED A TICKET PLEASE!!
Champions of F***ing Europe. Again!!! #Number6.
