Football fans across the globe are stunned by another Diego Simeone masterclass, while the Liverpool fans are nervous about their upcoming Europa League clash with Villarreal.
If you have anything to add on these, or any other subject, join the debate right here.
Fans in awe of Atleti display
Enjoyed the game. Nice neat disciplined performance from Atletico. With some silky skills on show.
Nice to see Torres back with a bit of grit about his play. Overall the Atletico defence were top drawer.
What? Atletico Juve Leicester? Is this the end of tippy tappy? You can only hope. Cut to grey haired Frenchman crying into his carafe of red at a London watering hole. There there professor, there’s always America, they’ll love that sh**e, ha ha ha!
Pep definitely will be tested, that’s for sure. Take nothing away from Atletico though. They are by far the best defensive, counter attacking team in Europe. Or maybe it’s Leicester?
In any case, Pep better figure out how to overcome this type of tactic because it is rife in the EPL. People like to say he has chosen the easy way by going to City but he actually has a massive task ahead of him in a league that waits for no-one.
The EPL will probably be one of the most exciting ever next season with Spurs, Leicester, Arsenal, City, Chelsea, and Manchester United all expecting to challenge for the title.
Redmen look ahead to Madrigal clash
Lucas looked ring rusty as you might expect for someone who has been out. I wouldn’t put him at CB.
Surprised he didn’t play Martin S to see how he played but based on that you probably would think it would be Toure (thou he could be looking at it a different way and ‘resting’ him for that game).
On the balance of his lack of games (MS) I would be tempted to start Toure.
I can see this going badly wrong unless we get a Klopp tactical masterclass. Villareal are one of the best teams in La Liga and we will be hamstrung without Can Sahko and Origi.
A draw would be awesome but I’ll be happy if we are still in the tie for the second leg. Using my head I think our Europa adventure could be over come Thursday night.
Sakho causing a headache
If I have a headache at work a paracetamol would definitely improve my performance because I have to think, and look at a computer screen all day, so my head is important to my work. If a player has a problem where he cannot run without an injection, does that injection not improve his performance?
Yes they are ALLOWED but what we are discussing is whether they SHOULD be ALLOWED.
There is a list of banned drugs that the players, the clubs and the clubs medical staff are all informed of and the drug that Sakho took is on that list and he has admitted to taking it everything else is just smoke and mirrors!
It was pretty desperate to raise Messi who from the age of 10 was suffering from a growth hormone deficiency which is a recognised medical condition that required growth hormone treatment in his childhood.
