Tonight I would like to achieve a respectable performance. And a decent scoreline. While I don't quite agree with the UK media's total write-off of tonight's game, I'm not exactly booking my flight to Barcellona either. On the contrary. What I would like is just not to be humiliated. Again.
I seem to remember saying/thinking something very similar to this more or less exactly 12 months ago. Let's hope it turns out better this time. I don't think my nerves could stand it. There's a limit to how much heart-break you can put a girl through, surely... And yes, dammit, it is all about me. Don't they realise?
