just had a quick look at the highlights of last night's match and i must say we really gel very well but our accuracy in the box leaves much to be desired. alonso's passing was superb last night.
as for the penalty, i think gerrard played for it when he knew the defender was going to up-end him from the back. we should have a penalty for hands just before that incident.
agger's still finding his feet after the long lay off. we know his left foot packs quite a shot and if he had caught the two chances he had sweetly, we would have put the match to bed and qualify for CL knockout stages.
i think keane's also finding his feet. the supply is coming to him the way he likes it and i can't wait for torres to come back as i think the torres/keane partnership might just work for us.
another good performance i think,though the finishing couldve been better! if we took all our chances,we couldve a scoreline of 5-1...but i'm a dreamer...its 1-1 & in the end,we can consider ourselves lucky for getting a really soft penalty. in that game,i saw our passing to be slick & good...i saw some really nice footwork,backheels,etc...the one that gerrard missed got a nice backheel from gerrard to alonso(i think) who passed him a great return ball where gerrard shot wide...
we showed great character comming back from 1 goal down against a team who can really counter-attack. maxi rodriguez goal was good...he beat carra with juz 2 touches...
as i said earlier,good teams create their own luck...we r a good team...the best of all the good teams around...we will create more luck infuture...but i hope we win & score early coz this old frame of mine cannot last 90minutes of enxiety...
ngog had a very good backheel which took out the defender at the byline but he was too greedy trying to beat the goalie at his near post. would have done better with a lookup and pass instead. he's young and he will learn.
probably he will run a few extra laps as punishment by sammy lee for not doing that.
i notice the current team,with the influence of the foreign players,played some nice football...good one touch...flicks...backheels...i dont see much of that even during the 70s & 80s...its refreshing...just dont overdo it...as long as its effective
