Winning the European Championship: The Work in Progress

Well, this is too bad. We can’t seem to overcome the “semi-finals” curse, yet nothing lasts forever. I am hoping for a much better display next time. Frankly, I believe we have done the best we could with what we had. At the same time, there are still things to work on, and there is […]
