I’m fairly almost close to feeling sort of calm-ish
Don't worry Ray, we aren't a "co-called big team" we are a real big team. 2-0Playing against newcomer always poses some danger of an upset. It is always very motivating for newcomer to do well against a so call BIG team. I am finding myself edgy on this one but this game can go both way depending on who gets the first goal and I am hoping Manne will be our man.
I coached in Africa for a short time and one of my players was picked by Red Bull Ghana. A scout approached me after a session to talk about a few of the players - he said he represented Red Bull Ghana and could get them a move to Salzburg or Blackburn, oddly. I'm personally quite wary of anyone in Africa claiming to be a scout. Anyway I rebuffed him but he must have had a chat with this lad's parents and suddenly he moved to the centre of Accra to play at the academy. I checked on the lad a few years ago and realised he had made it to RB Salzburg in their youth system.Nice piece on tonight's opponents:
Liverpool’s Mané and Keïta came via the Austrian club whose scouting system is virtually peerless in Africa and beyondwww.theguardian.com
