    Brilliant tackle Alves.

    Frustrating game for Villa.

    By the by, I don’t think that he should have been taken off. He was getting closer and closer.

    It’s really psychological.

    Yes I also disagree with his substitution.

    Pep iis angry at Villa, and how can he not.

    he has been given 70 mins and he didnt score. he is deservedly subbed out to me. and at the end of that 70mins, he was walking around.

    This referee has been embarassing. A booking for that? And what was the foul he called on Iniesta a minute ago?

  12. Josep

    Villa would’ve scored from Pique’s pass but Messi took it.

    Alves off the post! We need more of that though. Not scared to take the shot from just inside the box. If we can score those we’d have 5-6 a game.

      All i have to say from the Inter match is Gareth Bale!!! what a player!!!!

  25. October 20, 2010

    so we can only score the second goal when we are THAT close to the goal…

    good game, we won, we were spectacular in every way except putting it in the net.

    Gareth Bale has been an up and coming player since he was at Soton.
    But now, he’s the real deal. If we ever sign a left sided player, I’d love him to play. He’s amazing.
    A second half hat trick from the boy!

    I was about to go nuts if we won by only 1. We still have these finishing issues. Good game, though.

    Gareth Bale holy cow!!!

      Yap, he’s the true gem of the EPL. Bale >>> Rooney (I know they don’t play the same position, but still Bale is pure class and I wouldn’t say no to him – as opposed to Rooney)

    We really need to look at the lack of threat in the box. For me, Alves needs to be a lot better with his crosses but to be fair there is very little to aim at. We need to have players bursting into the box from midfield. Villa was often the only option. I don’t know what he has to do to score but it’ll come. Certainly wouldn’t have taken him off. I’d have put Pedro on as well. Imo, our problem stemmed from playing two DMs at home. This left a huge pressure on Iniesta to create as neither Masch nor Busi do.

    Nice to see us getting a huge slice of luck at the end. We’re about due it.

    The other two teams in our group played to a 0-0 draw; probably the best we could hope for eh? It’d be nice if the last few games of the group stage were inconsequential, then we could then give some of our starters a rest.

    Hey, looks like Scottish football might be on the up. Rangers could easily have beaten Valencia. 🙂
