Nothing much to Braga about

It may have been billed as a day of celebration, but there was little for Toon fans to cheer on Saturday as our pre-season fixture programme came to an end with a dull 1-1 draw at home to Braga.

The visitors had taken the lead (in contentious circumstances) from the spot through captain Alan shortly before the break, but his opposite number Sideshow Bob equalised with - steady yourselves - a goal from a corner (yes, really) in the second half.

Our skipper was extremely fortunate not to earn himself a second red card of the summer soon afterwards, and while Goofy had a goal disallowed for offside, a winner would have been undeserved. The only other real point of note was an injury to the anonymous Spidermag.

Afterwards the Silver Fox complained: "It wasn't really the pace I would have wanted with a week to go before the season, but that's the pace Portuguese teams play at." But then I suppose you have no choice but to make do with the opposition that are put in front of you. Eh? Oh.
