But the kids found a way to beat it, so hopefully the 1st team will too.
Italian sides cynical? That’s an understatement, expect loads of blatant constant cheating and underhanded tactics, acting the cunt etc etc. It’s going to be tricky tonight but we must play with a good bit of savvy and shrewdness to not get sucked in and to overcome the shit they will dish up.
We failed to deal with the cheating stuff last season and ultimately it’s what cost us in the end.
Hopefully we have learned, although but I am not so sure, last game it seemed some of the naivety was still there.
