I was exhausted last night, like the players I too had a long journey and was struggling to stay awake during the game. I want to write a quick note this morning so no one thinks that I am like one of those Man Utd supporters who goes into hiding after a loss.
The game was not a classic, we did not spark any fireworks and to be honest I never expected any after that long trip. Forlan’s goal was scrappy, Carragher and Reina should have taken care of it however I must commend both of them for coming up big later in the game.
The whole two extra referrees thing has a lot to be desired, now instead of having four blind referrees we have six. Yossi’s legitimate goal was disallowed while Soto got a yellow for protesting after he was studded in the back.
As I Tweeted already : We Lost to Lille and Benfica away then we trashed them at Anfield, I believe we can score at least two against Atletico. Their defence looks weaker than both Lille’s and Benfica’s, yes they will have Sergio Aguerro but I do not think it will be a problem.
