Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
eh. had a gameplan and stuck to it. obviously looking for a draw. madrid have come out to prove a point, dominate possession and pass us off the park. had a lot of the ball, but most of their shots have been long shots.
half time comments
maicon: non existent. expected better
vinny: unsettled early, punked by penaldo, worked into it
big nasty: look composed, loved his long passing
clichy: been exposed a bit, still not as bad as maicon
barry: very, very good.
javi: along with barry, havent allowed alonso/khedira/essien
yaya: nothing early, worked his way into it well, had our best chance
silva: very quiet, hasn't been able to have many touches on the ball unfortunately
nasri: horrible. couldn't get into it, didn't really try to, honestly better that he's not on
tevez: his touches have been nice, but few and far between. varane/pepe have just crowded him out any time we've gone forward.
26% possession sums it up really. we haven't come to win the ball and play our normal game. we've come to defend, madrid have come to not lose, and to prove a point.
