Gerrard not suprisingly finally got into the game when Crouch came on, and he could move back to where he should have been from the start. Benitez f**ked up as he did in 2005, only that time he corrected it with enough left for time for a comeback.
True about Kaka. Both he and Seedorf had suprisingly quiet games, I expected to see much more from both of them. Twas a good game to watch.
The reason why Kaka and Seedorf had quiet games was the way in which Rafa set the lads up. Thats why Stevie was playing where he was. Kuyt and Stevie harried the Milan defense for the entire first half. Alonso and Masch controlled the middle and got the ball out wide. Sadly we only created a couple of half chances that we where unable to take.
I thought we played much better than in Istanbul but thats footy for you. We where lucky in 2005 and they had a bit of luck last night.
Disappointed but not as devastated as I should be.
The road to Moscow starts from today.
Onwards and upwards
Thanks mods for leaving this thread up
I was hoping in my drunken stupor that I would have been in to bump this with a "Told you!" but it was not to be.
