Another thing that has to be said...


Fabio Coentrao! Has been fantastic and should be the number 1 LB the rest of the way in the CL and I really dont want to see him go this summer.
Sadly, he's going.
lol.. thts all i was thinkin' watching him yesterday.. 'this guy won't be sold cheap'
- Two seasons ago, Bayern outplayed Real at this stage partly thanks to a star performance from Kroos, who combined intelligent passing with mobility and the ability to evade challenges. At the time, Real lacked that type of player – Alonso was not mobile enough, Sami Khedira not technical enough, and Mesut Özil's contributions too intermittent.
....But Modric has solved that issue. There was one perfect example of his role, shortly after Real had gone ahead, where he effortlessly skipped around Schweinsteiger's challenge before playing in Benzema on the left, who crossed for Ronaldo to blaze over.

- Real recorded only 28% of possession that makes Modric's 97% pass completion rate so impressive. Anyone can complete passes when their side are dominating but Modric's ability to find team-mates so consistently, when under pressure, proves he belongs at this level.

I took this from a post on the Guardian. if anyone doesn't understand how important modric is to us, you might now

100 percent correct

Peps tactics played right into our hands yesterday. Looking at next week you best believe we will see Müller and or Mario Götze in the starting line up in German. We need to stay tight but also I want to see the BBC start on Tuesday with Bale tracking back to help the midfield. If we score early they will start to press and the space will open up in behind. If we score twice game over in my mind. We score we advance!
yesterday, i actually didn't see a man of the match..

everybody played really well; some, maybe more than the others.. but they were all amazing. starting from Casillas to benzema.

i don't think the scoreline did justice to how the game went but thats due to bayerns over possession and doing nothing with it

...ronaldo is just returning from injury and i think if he scores this weekend, it will be a good confidence boost for him.

bale should have started and then substituted imo...

i thought our CB were really brillant... pepe was very alert and Ramos was just using his brain and not body this time
.. the most impressive was Isco and Coentrao combination to shot down the left wing.. i thought they did good.

Alonso, Casillas and Modric were the key players (not MOTM).. they were the reason we held grounds even being dominated by possession

Benzema got us the most important goal of his UCL career; its left for us to defend it and even take advantage of it away at germany
...di maria was good but i prefer him in the middle not in the wing

you could see the frustration in Pep's face.. it just showed his plan was defeated

but lets not get carried away, it won't be any easier in Germany and 1-0 is a lot of work to defend.. i'm just glad bayern didn't get an away goal.. it makes it a lot easier

we really need to be wary of Schweinstiger.. he is really the center of bayern's play

Some Real Madrid Tiki Taka :D

lmao
Bayern cant handle the counter attack. Could have should have been 3-0.
+4
Also Modric and Alonso were on Boss difficulty.
Real had 3 big chances.
Bayern 1.

But it's totally normal, that not every big chance is a goal...
Coentrao Man of the Match!

I wonder how would Barca vs Bayern match look this year. They would probable have to change the rules,so that the team with more possession wins,with the away possession counting as well lol.
+1
I think bayern would probably dominate possession because of peps tactics
I am glad that we didn't get a chance to play against them .they would thrash us considering barca never going to sit back n waiting for counter like many other .atpresent they are absolutely best possession based team .
^Lionel Messi. An element lacking from this Bayern team's tika taka. That could be the difference, although Barca's defence.... might tilt the game in favour of Bayern.
Might tilt in Bayern's favor? We have defense?
I wonder where all the Karim haters went? They're probably still lurking in their caves.
+4
He was great. Pressured the two centre backs, dropped deep and started counter attacks to the wings as well. Topped off by a goal.
Here's a highlight of Karim vs Neuer. It also includes his post-match presser containing a few words for his haters.

That's a clip from the movie Troy, playboy.
It's also from MM :P
Lol
Don't tell me you guys don't get it...
I'm here! Still hating strong :) LOL
+2
Benz will always have his haters including ME especially when his production is less than what is desired. Though he has scored in big games it means 0 if we don't benefit the rewards from it. Yes scoring the winning goal against Bayern is a big thing but scoring next week against them or setting up another is also wanted. We only hate on players who have immense talent and their production on the pitch given the games/mins does not reflect such.

In the end there's no fan who doesn't want the players representing their team to do well and make a good showing of themselves whilst wearing the colors of the team.

Problem is, Benzema isn't deployed to be a scorer. He is there to create goal scoring opportunities for Ronaldo and the other attackers. I don't know why people assume that a striker's only job is to score. Football has evolved from that era. Yes, he is there to score the occassional goal, but it isn't his primary duty. Not all strikers are set up to be like Raul, Suarez and Co. The best example is the prolific Villa who was simply assisting at Barca. I didn't see anyone complaining about him over on the Barca forum.

I think some of you need to get the idea that strikers must score out of your heads, not targetting anyone specifically, but in general. I see a ton of comments blaming strikers of different clubs for not scoring, and that to me is rubbish.
