Championships are clearly something like buses.
After 46 years on the planet my beloved County rewarded me with my first ever in April. And yesterday my Swedish team Djurgårdens IF won the Swedish Allsvenskan!
Stressful final game, only needed a point away to Norrkoping but after 17 mins gone, they wer already 2-0 down.
Championship rivals Malmo already 2-0 up and ultimately won 5-0. Bitter rivals Hammarby who share Djurgardens stadium also breathing down their necks.
I got home in time to watch the second half of the Norrkoping v Djurgardens game and I clearly made all the difference ;-) as they came roaring back with goals from Karlstrom and Turay. Got the point they needed and won the championship for the first since 2005!
Delighted for my Stockholm team, particularly pipping Hammarby!
Championships like buses, 46 years here and then two come along in seven months!
