On the Virge of Reckoning

Stalemate, stalemate, stalemate. We were poor going forward again. We should have taken advantage again. We drew 0-0 again. It’s disappointing. But we go again.

Beck in Business

“I won’t blunder like Alisson.” What a win. And what a way to do it. Literally, the best way. Give me that over a 6-0 thumping any day.
