Over the two legs IMO against a pure class opposition we haven't been that far off.  At this level small margins make big differences and the strength in depth has cost us.  IMO Isak stays on in the first leg we do better.

Wilson, meh, it's hard to say considering the goals he's got for us this season, but IMO he's better off the bench.

 

Tino great tonight for us.

It is hard not to be happy with how we have performed. Not happy with the result but we have held ourselves well. Joelinton's header in and the cross the keeper just pushed back were 2 massive moments. They were a really good team and we have 5 players who could have started or on the bench not available. If we could have brought on Barnes, Gordon, Isak, Miggy and Toonali it would have been different. Which it wasn't. Lascelles did well tonight. Second goal came because we had to go for it.

Absolutely no chance of winning this cup anyway. Fair chance of winning the EL if we enter it. Got the PSG memories. We'll be back some time soon. 


Aye, I’d rather we win the EL then refuse to accept our invitation to the CL next season.

 

That’s what a classy club would do, marra.

They're the best team we've played this year IMO (I include City in that). They were somewhat spawny with every pinball situation seemingly falling to them. We're close but just lack that top class ruthlessness with our chances.

 

Gordon ain't a central striker mind.

 

Livramento looks top class and Hall looks good as well.

 

Great experience for everyone.

LIvramento really playing well is a good sign too, given the dearth of options at fullback.

I thought we played well, did what we could, but between injuries to key players and Dortmund just being a very good team, we couldn't find a way through. The commentators kept going on about how we needed to win this game etc but I was just sat there proud of the team and enjoying it. First time back in 20 years, who gives a shit really if we qualify or not. Still fancy us to beat Milan anyway so should get 3rd at least.

 

Tino MOTM on our side, looks a really good player.

That;s it. The experts will all be saying how we are out and it was blah blah.  Totally ignoring like the first game that we are playing a shit hot established CL side.

Livramento looked comfortable on the left which lets Tripper go back on the right. 


I was about to post the same thing in his thread. He looked much more comfortable at left back than trippier

Should've done better with the header, piss poor from our free kick as well when they scored but it was a good ball out tbf. Injuries and the last game took it out of us. They looked big, physical bastards and have got us at the right time. Ref let them be pretty rough which is fair enough but didn't quite seem so lenient with us and even if he had've done, we looked a bit leggy.
