Up the Boro!

I just had to take a moment to record my intense joy at seeing the Boro make it to the UEFA cup final.

Despite it being only their second year in Europe the lads have done us proud.

Like Boro fans everywhere I was really down after our West Ham defeat in the semi-final of the FA cup and could not dare to believe we could beat Steaua Bucharest. But we rose magnificently to the occasion and the whole country was behind us when Massimo Maccarone scored that last goal in the 89th minute.

I hope it is a good omen for polling day in Kensington and Fairfield where I am starting to believe Labour really can beat the LibDems. If nothing else it has taught me the value of never giving up.
