  1. As much as these guys are likeable, I sometimes think the likes of Stevie don't really have the technical nous to provide good analysis on the technical aspects to today's game. "The middle three have to stop the opposition getting at the back four"…really? That it? That's all he took from that game? I know there are fundamentals, but it's more complicated than that

  2. Espn brings in such low graded people to there shows none of them ever won a champions league or i doubt even they have played proper champions league games themselves

  3. Hala Madrid ! While Liverpool has it's defensive issues, it's their midfield play that has unraveled in all competitions. Madrid has had the best midfield for years now. Vinicius can singlehandedly penetrate defenses and wreak havoc. Liverpool were poor & Madrid had missed many scoring chances.

  4. "Liverpool let them dominate the middle of the park…" really? With KCM catching their form at the right time, any liverpool mf will warm the bench if they come play for real madrid.
