    Champions League, Round of 16

    I was coming to post that quote: Jack Sear Klopp couldn't resist a bit of a dig at Atletico at the end of his interview with BT Sport. “I don’t understand to be honest with the quality they have why they play this kind of football. But it’s right, the winner is always right." Klopp: "When I...

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Simeone is a drag. But he’s elevated the team to heights we never could have dreamed. We take the good with the ugly, relishing these victory while lamenting the pathetic displays of football that often plague this team. In terms of football, Simeone has occasionally shown sighs of playing...

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Michael Cox @Zonal_Marking I can’t believe Atleti have actually won this on the night, as well as the tie overall. They were largely dreadful tonight. Incredible tie through, a great ending to the Champions League season.

    “That's the first time Marcos Llorente has scored two goals in a game (at senior level anyway). Had only scored six goals before tonight, EVER.”

    Yeah, I don’t disagree. I’m in too deep now. Love to love them and love to hate them.

    Why? I’m not being an ass. Curious to hear why.

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Simeone once made the point that if Partey were at another team people would include him as one of the best at his position.

    Liverpool 2019-2020: Let's Talk About Six, Baby

    Is it expected to be back in time for the second leg against Atletico?

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Without Son and Kane, how good can the Spurs be? I'm not being sarcastic -- I just wonder what the expectations are down the top two players (and, maybe, adding that Erikson was sold in the transfer window).

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Holding the opponent to zero at home is a huge step, and even more exciting when it is Liverpool. That said, Atletico needs to find a way to score a goal in the second leg.

    Champions League, Round of 16

    When I watch Atletico sit back for 90 minutes, I feel like I'm learning what a heartache feels like.

    Atletico with about 70 passes. Liverpool with nearly 300.

    Champions League, Round of 16

    I sort of appreciate that Simeone recognizes that he cannot go blow-for-blow against Liverpool, but this tactic of sit-back-and-wait puts me on edge. I'd like to see a bit more aggressiveness from the Atletico rather than 70 minutes of hoping, praying, for a counter.

    Champions League, Round of 16

    Atletico are without wunderkid Joao Felix, who is still recovering from an injury and a cold/flu. In his place is Lemar, the usually-disappointing midfielder. I guess that "In Simeone We Trust", but this move confuses me. Lemar tends to perform below expectations, while Marcos Llorente has...
