Re: Futbol 2020-21

(so much for the cl season ... it'd still be fun if one could go to the stadium) Drawing Liverpool is not the worst. VvD out for the year, Jota out for 8 weeks (that's a huge blow), and a heavy fixture pile up through the holidays while the Bundesliga goes on break. Liverpool drew with Fulham over ...

Onto potentially another controversial opinion, is Paul Pogba the biggest waste of talent of his generation?
Waste is probably too harsh a word. Unfulfilled potential. There's Balotelli. Actually Dimitri Payet comes to mind. Maybe Mario Gotze?

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Conte's a screamer. You're with us or against us, us against the world! You can tell just by looking at him. That might have an effect for a season, but players tire of that quickly. There's a reason he never stays anywhere for more than 2 seasons. As a tactical coach I think he's worthless. Onto po...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Four German teams through to the knockout round. Madrid rescue their campaign, with Modric putting in a vintage performance. Inter had a chance to get through but Sanchez's towering header in stoppage time hit Lukaku square in the head who was loitering in an offside position. What a bizarre ending ...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

To be fair, that was a terrible penalty to award, so they shouldnt have been in the situation to begin with. That being said, they played with much less urgency and focus in the 2nd half. Nevertheless, survive and advance

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Gulacsi has been big when needed. He's not spectacular but he's a good shot stopper and I never remember him making any mistakes (a la de Gea)

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Ndombele was sick, I dont think it was COVID. First choice in midfield. Since about Sept, he's been great. Jose has really sparked something in him which is to his credit (both of them actually). He's an interesting combination of former Spurs midfielders Mousa Dembele (spinning away and holding off...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

With Jose's constant talk of "team shape" and "defensive blocks" and "simplicity", I've begun to appreciate Spurs as an exercise in pure form. A bit like a Richard Serra drawing or sculpture. There is an stark and innate beauty in watching the block of players move synchronized across the canvas of ...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Congratulations Mr Levy Pierre is very intelligent, he reads the game very well, he understands the game very well. He is going to be a coach one day, for sure. He is a pain, always asking questions why we do this and that. On the pitch he reads the situation very, very well and the people that sur...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

this game was totally a case in point: a draw at bayern is fine, but sometimes you should win a game like that (instead of doing silly backheels in your own half when you're still one up) ... they're maybe not afraid but also don't thrive under pressure, the decision-making becomes ponderous ... i ...

Rats giving the ball away too cheaply in the last 20. Couldnt relieve the pressure. Bayern just pumping balls into the box.

Re: Futbol 2020-21

What a half so far. Rats looked very comfortable without the ball and dangerous on the counter for 30 minutes. Bayern werent really generating anything. After the Rats scored there was no response and they almost scored a second. But then around half hour mark they just fell asleep twice especially ...
