THE HOUR HAS COME: D-DAY
Lads, brethren, the hour is nigh. But before we go to war, you can save 15% or more on car insurance if you switch to...yeah geico isn’t paying us for this, so won’t bother finishing it. Anyways lads, we go to face the dark, nefarious & malicious forces that lay deep in the catacombs of Catalunya. We must emerge victorious. Our fate is in our hands. Even though we just faced Liverpool, we can’t let this slip like Steven Gerard. No evil shall withhold us from 3 points. We continue the crusade. In Zidane we trust, for it’s 3 points or bust.
VINICIUS HENRY Jr
Vinicius has been named UEFA Champions League Player Of The Week. Rightfully deserved for his heroics against the Treacherous Liver. They will rue the day they set foot on our righteous Estadio Alfredo Distefano.
Whatever happens today, win or lose. We must keep marching on for there are still many games to play. And lastly, every game is a final. Hasta el final.
Check out the announced squads. The referee for today’s game was previously changed to Gil Manzano. A strange thing indeed. And some last minute pre-clasico salt by Kiyan.
