LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
Some of you may know this story, others may not. But this is a story about death.
Once upon a time, death came into a town. Death gathered the people at the towns square & said to them...
“I’m going to kill 50 of you tonight!”.
Everyone panicked! but The towns leader responded,
“Death, we know you’re inevitable & that none of us can escape you. But killing 50 of us is too much, we’re a small town. Could you please have mercy and reduce the number?”
Death obliged and said,
“Fine, i won’t kill 50, i’ll only kill 5 of you”
So the towns people all agreed that only 5 of them would die that day. Everyone returned to their lodgings that night.
But by the next morning, 50 people had died.....
The towns leader came out to meet death in anger and sorrow and said
“Didn’t you promise to have mercy and that you would only kill but 5 of us? did you go back on your word and kill 50?”
“I stuck to my word! i only killed 5 of your people....FEAR killed the other 45!”
Moral of the story: Fear kills more people than death itself. So don’t be afraid.
NOW BACK TO FOOTBALL
After losing to Sheriff, our next loss will be against the Police. Anyways, Vinicius, Casemiro both need rest. Miguel can be excused, though Camavinga did a much better job defensively at LB than him. Long story short, we need a right back ASAP.
