Giants in a Land of Midgets: Random Thoughts


Whatever your thoughts on the match, you can’t help but laugh at Ibrahimovic surrounded by a pack of joyous midgets after both goals. I certainly did, but check out 4:24 and 6:08 in the below video to see for yourself:

Thoughts worth thinking:

  • Chygrynskiy didn’t impress me as much as he impressed others, but I enjoyed his passing range and his physical presence in the side. He’ll only get better, I think, which is wonderful.
  • Ibra scored and got the assist for the other goal, but is still very obviously growing into his role. There wasn’t much going on with Pedro! and Jeffren out there, but a luckier bounce or a slightly different angle could have put us up 1-0 on one of the many crosses we had, not to mention Ibra should have done better with his one-on-one with the keeper at the end of the first half.
  • Xavi, when he wants to, can dominate any game. He’s glorious.
  • Inter is up next. Strap on your helmets and get ready for some serious action. Excitement knows no bounds.
  • Caceres scored for Juve on his debut against Lazio, netting the game winner on a pretty slick volley.
  • This one guy also score a neat goal.

      That’s also a great one, but I think on Isaiah’s picture, Ibra seems to be even taller, as it is taken from below 🙂

    HAHA! Poor Messi & co. having to hug his stomach.

    Eto’o’s goal was glorious. Very lovely indeed.

    Oh, and we gotta be careful. It’s not only Sneijder who can shoot with an incredible trajectory.
    Otherwise, Eto’o won’t be able to do such magic every day, right? So maybe we’re lucky that he spoiled some of his magic potential against Parma. And in the end, it’s still Ibracadabra, not Etous-pocus.

    I LOVE how the Brits have NO grasp of the Latin concept of accents at all. Martin “Cah-Ceh-Resssss”? Really? *Sigh*
