Everything else is on hold until after the 25th May, now it’s all about the Football!

‘Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that’ (Bill Shankly).

I’ve always liked the above quote from the late great Bill Shankly. Between now and the 25th May these words are going to take on even greater meaning for the fans of the top three teams in the Austrian premier league.

With only three matches remain two points divide the top three:

Austrian Bundesliga

  1. Sturm Graz         57
  2. Salzburg               56
  3. Austria Wien     55

Shortly, I’ll be heading off to the stadium to watch Austria’s match. As ever, I’ll be full of that hope and dread that comes with following a team as you enter the ‘business end of the season’. Winning the league is always something you want to see your team do, but for Austria fans a win this season would be something special – it’s the 100th birthday of the club.
