We’ve barely seen Minamino, though. He’s still settling, his performances have been mixed and he was never going to feature tonight. I think the subs were more about going with experience than being happy with the result. 

Might as well have had Lallana on the bench if Minamino was never going to feature.

 

Anyway, I still think we'll go through.

Most definitely. Shame about the three week wait, though.

Just seen someone on twitter say that one of our best players was Fabinho.

 

Am I losing my mind? Thought he was easily our worst player, myself.

He along with Trent and Mo were the standout worst performers.  To be fair to Fabinho he’s not been long back from injury though.

Competition for worst player tonight was pretty fierce imo. Salah, Ox, Origi and Trent all good candidates.

Not at the level he’s usually at in these ties. Maybe the same a bit with Gini. Trent was the most disappointing by his standard, I thought.

Thought he was really slow in lots of what he did tonight lacking Match sharpness.

each one of the subs were very poor though. Oirgi fucking hell couldnt even control the ball let alone pass it.

The PL tropht could hardly look more cheap, tacky and gaudy - so they make a mini one in gold to somehow manage to do it.

They got that early goal from some dreadful defending and they played like demonic shitehouses for the rest of the game with the crowd behind them. Add in a crap ref and some shabby performances from a few of our players then its no shock. Key is we didn't leak any further goals.  Tie is still well within our grasp. 

They got the goal from a lucky bounce. Even the two atletico players didnt know where the ball was until it rolled to the feet of one of them. But they all count, well, except when VAR is involved.

 

Yes, they played like shithouses but our play was pants from the 1st minute. Trent's first two deliveries immediately after the goal were into row S in the stand behind their goal. Some of his throw ins went straight to the oppos. He wasnt alone though.

 

Why are we caught out when teams come at us strong in the first few minutes? This is how city have attacked us in the two CL games the other season and each of the league games home and away? Dont be surprised when city do it again in the upcoming league game and we look poor.

 

Inside, I think Jurgen will be raging at that performance tonight. The boys have done us proud this season but you wonder if all the hard work may just about to catch up with us and the next 3 or 4 games are harder than they should be.

Origi does the hard stuff well, but is gash with the easy stuff. 

Yep. Some great work getting into attacking positions twice then a poor touch for a goal kick. Frustrating.

Speaking of throw ins the attack that led to the corner they scored off came from a wrongly awarded throw to them.

And the worst thing is, the fucking ref had a clear view of it and still gave it them. I actually thought we'd fucked up the throw in because the tv was showing a replay of the chance then quickly cut back to the play and van Dijk skying the ball out for a corner.

If he has time to think he's pretty wank. If he relies on instinct he's a different beast.

I was wondering how the fuck they had the ball after it too, only realised it has been given to them when comms said.

Let’s trust these lads to qualify. They were poor as a team tonite, but they ll work on it and will have something to prove.

 

There have been too much praise and euphoria lately ( winning the treble, invincible , 112 pts, all theses stupid records ), maybe the general mood among fans and pundits have softened the team ?

No - they just had a poor night v a team who style wise are just about as bad as it gets for us.

 

I too trust them to qualify, but it is gonna be tough.

What was said (by both)?

Robbo said something about how   Madrid were celebrating at the end and you could tell he was riled by it. Rio said they (our lads) should use that in the second leg to go out and win.

TBF, that bald cunt tonight was his Polish equivalent and probably worse. 

Haha. Yeah it was like a continental Anthony Taylor tribute act out there doing his thing.

 

A solid scando, dutch or german ref for 2nd leg please (or Collina to come out of retirement to piss off the blueshite on the 15th anniversary of when they nearly made the Champions League).

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
