Fair play to yous Roger for getting the club going again, and congrats on getting to the final. you's were dead on your feet in that last game and just could not compete with Munich's fitness. i would say you had a fair few Mass that night?  ;D

Let's just say we didnt have the full compliment on the train heading back  ;D

we were dead out alright sure we never expected to get that far , lost our best player in the semi as well , ligaments , he will be out for a few months.. recruitment drive now for a few fit young fellas to carry us older wiser heads.. although we'll take the old wise heads too!

yeah, we lost one of our best players in the first game with ligaments as well, not good!! i would say both will be out for a very long time.
there were plenty of Mass drunk on the saturday night by all teams, myself and the guys i was staying with were the last one out of the brewery.  :D

unfortunately i am no longer living in Munich but i was out for the weekend and brought my boots with me. I was the keeper for Munich in their last 3 games. was part of the original Munich squad back in 2002, when i was out there for my placement year, but have been home about 6 years now.

Hi stpauls.

Any chance of a run down of the munich squad? Is Archie still the bainisteoir?

sorry mate, don't know how i missed your post. archie is no longer the manager but is still involved with the club. his knee has been giving him gyp so he has not been able to give as much time recently.

Niall McCorley and Eric McEnerney are the managers now, and running a fairly tight ship from what i could see.
There are a few regulars still there, but the team was about 40% students out for the summer.

Were you in Munich at some stage venter?
