Your team sucks JJ. Losing to the weakest Brazilian team to reach a Libertadores SF since that fluke in 2006.
I wasn't impressed with them. On the other hand they have knocked us and Sao Paulo out, so they must be doing something right. They have a good keeper anyway. I'm not that taken by the rest. Before the tie I was told alot about people like Gabriel and Thiago Neves being big dangers. But I didn't think they were anything above mediocre.
Then again, they were up against the best team they'll ever play in South America. We're so strong in pretty much all areas of the pitch, I think most neutrals would agree that we've got a genuinly class side. But we didn't get it done, unfortunately.
Unreal, it was the match against Sao Paulo all over again. Totally outplayed in the second half, and managed to find a lucky goal that changed the story.
I don't actually understand how we didn't score in the 10 minutes after their second. I've never seen so many near misses and goal mouth scrambles in such a short space of time. What makes me a little sad, is that not only did we lose to an inferior side, we lost to a really stupid one.
Fluminense's tactics after going 2-1 up were extraordinary. They just collapsed onto the edge of their own box and let us have the play for the remainder of the game. They are lucky as fuck we didn't score and can thank their keeper.
Thiago Neves tried to run the ball in the corner with 13mins to go!?
And then he fell on the ball and injured himself. You had to
Sorry for your lost bet, JayJay.
Don't be such a nice guy!
I'm a big boy, I know what I'm doing and can afford to play with. So far I've lost all my Giants (Superbowl) money and then some, but I've still got some time to draw it back and maybe end the season 5 pence up.
I'm pretty stupid for not backing Argentina last night when I nearly always do.
For those who didn't see the game... The Brazilian police were more of a threat during the game than Fluminense were, and yet they ended up with 3 goals. Football can be a strange game as we know.
