Weren't we right here not a month ago? Weird, unexpected - but acceptable. Most acceptable.
These two, again
To quote myself on 11 April, prior to our demise in the Champions League:
We’ve tackled tactics throughout the season. This time is no different. However, there’s just one thing: I’m not sure that this side of the game has ever been more critical to our success than it will be at the Theatre of Dreams. This promises to be epic, and we must be ready for said epicness.
Carlo got it wrong on that evening. He may well have cemented his fate as well.
On Sunday, he has an opportunity at redemption. No one - and I mean no one - expected us to be in this position a month ago. What must our stylish, yet understated, Italian do to ensure this fairytale has a happy ending?
So, again, I ask you to summon your inner-Mourinho. How would you line us up? How should we approach the match?
This is our season, friends. No gray area, just victory and defeat. KTBFFH
