"They can beat anyone on their day."
"Taking it one game at a time." Yep. That's how time works.
But the really brainless ones come in the post-match interviews:
"How happy/disappointed are you with that result?"
Please ask meaningful questions. We already know that the answer will be "very...".
Before the season kicked off, my main concerns were:
1. CL qualification. It seemed important to open the new stadium with CL football.
