    We need to Calm down take it game after game and stop this boastful talks. Knockout is just one life so let’s focus more on work and stop this Boastfulness else the players will be complacent. Not saying we should talk down the team as well, we should just be focused and stop unnecessary boasting.

  • So literally if we eventually lift this cup, means we navigate 7matches unbeaten, that would be awesome and who said it’s not possible? We taking it one game at a time, but I’m full of confidence knowing fully well any team we pair with would be discharging from their anus even before the match kickoff, we’ve already inject that fear factor into our game, no team dear boost of beating us anymore. Ride On Boys.
