You don’t have to look, but if there is a play you have to help and They take a card, bad luck and play another one the next game. “

You don’t have to go crazy for the possibility that exists if you win. The important thing is tomorrow and be prepared for a difficult game. “

We may be the favorite according to many people, but we do not think that way


Return of the fans
