We like to impress ourselves sometimes. We write previews and talk about tactics, selection, storyline, formations, and form. We make predictions that never come even close to reality, then conveniently ignore them when it comes time to write up a review. Those things are good to talk about - what's a blog for, after all? Sometimes, though, you don't need to read or write something like that to know the gravity of the situation. If you pay enough attention to this site, you know what I feel about this match already. It's time to let the game do the talking.
Only one thing matters today, and it's summed up in three words:
Beat. The. mackems.
