Not a lot happened in July, two football matches – that was it.
The first of those matches was on the 2nd of the month as Linfield faced NSI Runavik in the UEFA Cup. The match allowed me the opportunity to get a look at the internal work going on at Windsor Park.
Linfield won the match 2-0, and the tie 5-4 on aggregate.
As a result, they went through to the next round to face Spartak Trnava. Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Linfield fans turned up at Windsor Park hopeful of seeing their side reach the 3rd Round of the UEFA Cup.
Things were great at half-time, with Linfield 1-0 up and leading on away goals.
Unfortunately, Spartak Trnava scored 3 goals in the second-haalf to win 5-2 on aggregate.
