I was referring to his general play, not headed goals! As you said he has the size and positioning for it so it'll surely come with time.Curious, where did he look good in that regard today? Maybe I need to specify, he is fine in tackles and winning the ball, but he does not score headers a lot.
That's how I have it too.I'd still make Liverpool favourites to go through, but not by much … and if Atletico score an away goal it'll get very interesting.
fecking hell awaits....feck me
There's no one outstanding performer in this Liverpool side. There are some very good players but it's a functional side which works very well as a unit. We're going to win the league based on that functionality more than our individual quality imo.That result has been coming for a few games now. They haven’t played very well recently
Such a poor ref. Not that we would have scored had he been an excellent ref but he was so, so poor. This can't be the level of elite Uefa refs, Shirley? Fell for every dive, whether it was us diving or (mostly) them.
You'll still go through imho. Far too much firepower, your two wingers picked the worst night possible to have an off night.Nicely set up for the return leg. Feels like we gave Atletico the game they wanted. Salah does my head in some times.
That Haaland goal and the sound the net made was just...
You didn't have a single shot on target to be honest. It's not like they were hanging on. Despite all your possession they had the clearer chances and your fortunate to only be a goal down.Bunch of shithouses and a massive homer ref helped them see out the game. Would have been nice to get an away goal, but still would have us as favourites to go through at Anfield. Going to be a very different game.
He was actually a step down in quality from the previous Zenit CM orchestrators Zyryanov and Shirokov, good but not really the level of player you would watch and think he's wasting his career here. Then again i suppose you can easily say they should have moved too.Wasted a lot of his career chasing money in Russia and China. He could have played for big European clubs instead.
Well... earning a shitton of money isnt exactly 'wasted'.
Yep can't disagree too much. Atletico Madrid showed once again tonight they can score with little possession. If I had to predict I'd go 2-1 Liverpool second leg but of course never underestimate them in an Anfield second leg.I'd still make Liverpool favourites to go through, but not by much … and if Atletico score an away goal it'll get very interesting.
Well he was twice there and twice the ref saw it wrong to be fair. I dont know though, if that was the barometer applied consistently, 5 players should see a yellow every game. Maybe the words he is using are the issueHe does enjoy protesting a bit too much though, bless him
