That was a brutal one to take but I think we were superb last night. We played with great intensity and quality. The only thing we didn't get right was getting the second goal in 90 minutes but we came as close as you can hitting the bar and forcing oblak to make save after save. They're the most defensive team i've ever seen and yet we created many chances. We mixed it up with early crosses, crosses from the by line and long shots. We played with confidence and great intensity for 100 minutes and then under no pressure whatsoever Adrian kicks it straight to them and they score knocking the stuffing out of every one. We did not get beaten by a tactical genius as they're all saying and this was not a bad display. I'm proud of the boys. You can't get to the final every year I guess but we'll be back.

I wouldn’t pay to watch that negative rubbish that Atletico serve up under Simeone, what a bitter blow that positivity should fall to negativity.
And you’re right, the lads were superb last night.
We mustn’t complain at all, we’re privileged to watch our football under Jurgen.
Adrian - pick yourself up mate and take care of business, it happens to everyone.
Cmon Reds!

But they scored three goals against Liverpool.

For the chance's liverpool created there shouldn't have been extra time. Liverpool need a goalscorer. The amount of times crosses are whipped into the box and nobody is on the end of them is criminal. I love bobby but he's more time orchestrating play than finishing it off. Drop him to 10 and get that goalscorer. Also mane and salah need real competition. They no there is no risk of loosing there place after a poor game because the quality just is not there to replace them. That is not a dig at any of them by the way its just stating what everyone is thinking. Werner and aouar would give us so many different options and the competition for places we desperately need.

I got to be honest i was devastated with the loss last night. More to do with the fact that for me it was our best performance of 2020 and one of the best performances of the season for me. The only thing that let us down was finishing, other than that our intensity and zip was world class. We came undone by poor goalkeeping from Adrian, he made the mistake for the 1st and personally i think his positioning was out for the 2nd and 3rd. However i cannot hold a grudge against him. He is here as a reserve keeper and that's what he is. We are on the brink of winning the league and he has played his part in that. To be honest i'd be surprised if any other reserve keeper has played such a big part in a title win in the past that he has. I really hope we take last nights intensity and performances into our remaining league games so we finish this season on a winning run playing well.

Oblak was inspired yesterday. can't fault the boys or even adrian tbh. can't ALWAYS have it our way. I think Gini was awesome for most of the match and I'm sure a new face or two will come in during the summer.

Just imagine the service a proper predator up front would be getting trent and robbo would have a field day, it's not a knock on bobby he is a legend and after all he ain't a out an out striker, moving him slightly deeper would add another option give us an extra dimension. For me origi could be forgiven for moving on he is meant too be are alternative but when chosen is starting out wide or not effecting games as much as desired .

I agree with many of the comments above. We need some one who is ruthless in front of goal. Some one that can be called upon if our usual front 3 are not doing the job or are misfiring. Ogigi, as much as i like his attitude, and although he has cropped up with some important goals, does not have the ability IMO, to turn the tide of a match or inspire the team to victory. That includes some of our other team players too. The amount of chances of missed wayward shots last night was crazy. Credit to Athletico, they're a solid team to play against.

And their off. The game barely just ended yet here we are with the same old "We need a predator in the box", "A real goalscorer" and all that. As if all that would have stopped Adrian from ripping his pants on the first goal and being a virtual bystander for the second. This is not the time for such tired, lame arguments that have been had daily for a week now. It is a distraction, IMO.

Bottom line is that we created enuff chances to win two games and tho our finishing was a bit off (which is due to what AM was doing to our front three defensively), we still score 2 goals goals and prolly would have scored a 3rd cos AM would have opened up and got desperate and we would have dropped and packed the midfield and then counter them. AM got lucky cos AB1 was out and Oblak was in goal for them. That's about it even tho, we can always do better.

Red meister i respect your opinion mate but its not just about last nights game its been happening all season. We have won over half our games by a one goal margin. We need something different to change it up. The font 3 have played practically every game thus far. What's so wrong about having options. Its clear as day we need to be able to switch things around every now and again and keep the opposition thinking. Its not jumping on any bodies back because of last night. We are not converting enough of the chances we are creating. We have to start putting teams away when we are so dominant.

REDMICK, I fully agree that we have not taken as many chances as we would have liked this season for sure BUT we had a 2 goal lead and we pummeled Athleti into submission. Also, I never said that we should not have options which in fact we do have options as Ox can play on the wing. Origi is also an option now whether you think he is a good one or not is another issue.

I just think that we should take a chill pill and not start "bodying" our front three cos like it or not, you will not always take your chances. We had played well enuff to win and had the error not come and we win, this whole schtick does not come up right now so let's not start with that stuff now. Just my take. Up Da Pool!
