okay 2 games in as Liverpool, really really early impressions;
1) fuck injuries. Skrtel, Jovetic, Suarez all injured before the first game, Coates copped a knock game 1 but was back for the return leg + the injury aready to Lucas. Pain in the ass.
2) Not sure if its my computer jerking me about but the 'highlights' alternate between periods of smoothness and really jerkyness. Mostly after a goal has been scored and they're moving back into position.
3) Conceeded 4 mins in on both legs to Vitesse. First game was a clanger by Reina (maybe match engine problem. maybe realistic. not really sure
), 2nd game Bony got his Usain Bolt on and raced onto a loose ball and through my defense. He has pace and acceleration of 13/13 yet easily ran through and past Agger and Coates who are of a similar speed (13/14 for agger and 11/13 for coates). I won the leg 5-2 though so
4) Shouts seem to have a far bigger impact than last year and you actually get the sense that the team is implementing the changes you want.
All up while i reckon there are things to work out in the match engine, its not as bad as i've heard. Granted its only 2 games in so i'll probably flip flop on that after a few games.
