Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
Juve moved the ball better, but I don't think they outplayed us. They did create better opportunities though.
I won't say we were lucky to draw either. Mata should have made it 3-1 and ended the game. They got the equaliser from ridiculous sequences of plays from us. Had Mikel not gave the ball away and Terry not had a moment of retardation, we would have been saying Juve have a lot to do now and Chelsea are set up nicely to advance.
I think we can get something in Donetsk. Shakhtar are a very good team. Make no mistake about it. But they aren't as good as they were a few years ago. We're not consistently good, but on our day we're better than them. Getting something away at Juve will be hard. But we almost blew them away at the start of the game. That game doesn'y occur until November, so I wont thinkmuch about it right now.
Torres as a deeper player? I prefer Torres not playing, tbh. A terrible player by all means.
@Redead: Lampard's closing for the Vidal goal was absolutely disgusting. Vidal barely did anything to get by him. What has happened to you, Frank Lampard?
