Re: General Football Debates!
Well kind of late, but I'm still going to put down my input on last week and this week.
Are loss to Chelsea in the first lag was bad. We had that game and dominated, but couldn't put the ball in the net at the end and Chelsea did. It came from a mistake from Messi (News flash: Messi has lost possession of the ball most this season.)
The game VS Madrid was like rubbing salt on our wounds. This game we could have won and had are chance, but failed to capitalize and Madrid for the short time they had the ball played well and deserved the win (Their 2nd win out of 15-20 games VS us :p).
The 2nd lag VS Chelsea was just brutal. We played well and even had the red card advantage with us. We were up 2-0 and blow it to 2-2, 2 of Chelsea goal coming from 10 man team. They played a very tight defense and had Messi on lock down. There is not much to say, but respect to Chelsea for fighting this far and defeating Barcelona at least you finally got your vengeance from 2009? Make it count.
We have a big problem as Escorps said years go on and we just become more attack base and use are possession style football as defense, but we can only get so far with it, as we need at least 3 good defenders, we have only two with Abidal out and getting older, so is Puyol. This is something I hope Tito does for us, and I hope he learned from Pep well. We also need height which is another downfall. Pique is like the tallest one, we have big troubles in set pieces especially against Madrid like are loss to them Xavi was marking Benzema in the corner set piece lol
Well Madrid are out unlike Mou we didn't really need an excuse, it was just not meant for us this year and Chelsea played well. Mou based his loss off the game VS Barcelona, even tho we played a day earlier and he has many youth on his team compared to us. He also says that we lost due to the same reason and later tries to insult us by saying we took Chelsea so lightly like we did with Inter.
Bayern played well, so did Madrid it was a heavyweight battle between the two, height, strength, youth, speed, and determination. I had this really good feeling Bayern was going to win I even called the scoreline out and called PK 2-1 score with 3-1 PK before the game and PK in favor of Bayern. I was at a PUB in Abu Dhabi well my flight landed there for 4 hrs and caught the game. The guy beside me was like how'd you know did the game come on late here lol
Anyways final will be Bayern VS Chelsea...I will route for Bayern lol :p
