Strong team on paper but we are still a small team and open to bullying. However, this game is on TV across the world so let's hope the referee is having none of that. I expect the referee to be a world class one so who is it, anyone know?

Tell you what man, we need to take advantage of this early pressure. Surely we can't keep this up without getting a goal because it leaves us open for the sucker punch. And we know all about that.
