Disgraceful from the Spaniards

I was hoping Fernandinho was going to drop one 

Well done City 

Unlucky Atletico Ha Ha ha

 

I thought that was great fun.  You have to admit, when it all kicks off its great entertainment. When did we last see a genuine ruck down at Ashton Gate? Memories of Mark Aizelwoid head-butting someone in clear view of the Dolman.  Ah, happy days.

It always makes me smile when the commentator states the obligatory “no one wants to see this”. I do. Very entertaining.

Good, atletico have built their rep on that type of shithousery 

Yep. I mean what Simone has achieved there is impressive. Two titles in a 2 team league, 2 CL finals, a new stadium etc. But it does feel as if they need to change the way they play. They showed at end they are pretty good going forward when they need to.  If they’d attacked like that for 180 minutes over two ties I’m sure they may well have scored..

It's not fit for purpose

Though think Man C got away with a pen near end so somehow VAR did them a favour as well

Exactly, tell me of anyone that didn’t enjoy the Norman Hunter/Francis Lee or Keegan/Bremner bust ups?

Mary Whitehouse, she didn't. The Archbishop of Canterbury at the time, the Right Reverend Robert Runcie, he didn't enjoy it. Cliff Richard, another one. Two of 'Pans People' said they did not enjoy it. Percy Thrower, he didn't enjoy it. The 'Blue Peter' BBC team didn't like it, and recorded a short film to tell the children of this country that this was no way to behave, and Little Billy Bremner is sorry and would not ever do it again. Every rugger bugger in the country at that time scoffed at it. And Jimmy Hill, he didn't enjoy it. Oh, and one of 'Smash & Grab,' can't remember which one, he didn't enjoy it.

I'm not defending AM but you do need different style teams. Football would be boring if everyone played like Man City do.

The defensive style is ....’ok’ , acceptable ,if it’s successful and there’s only the odd side to set up so 

Its the sly , nasty , cowardly physicality , the surrounding of referees, demanding of cards for opposition , the theatrics that are not acceptable

We do see parts of this in the English game , but they reminded me of Spanish sides of 70’s

Handbags tbh. If someone really wanted a fight they could have had one. All posturing. Similar to the stuff you often see from hooligans.

The trouble with male footballers is they're too emotianal.

I'm not sure whether or not you were serious, but, if we are referring to the same incident, it was not a head butt - Vrsaljko spat at Kyle Walker!

 

Top of the stairs? Can't see it, if it's the same incident, teammate/coach was directly in line and he didn't flinch

Yep, I think that is the same incident.

It certainly seemed to me that he spat - in Kyle Walker's direction, hence he (KW) was being held back from reacting further.

Looking at it i think his teammate/coach would have got it in his left ear hole, he didn't seem to move or react

Yeh, but you forgot Kendo Nagasaki, apart from all these losers everyone else loved it

Unsure about that. Thought Atletico fans very noisy 2nd half.

They adore Simeone. Despite his Latino attitude he’s turned them into a very decent team. The team is in his image and his and their antics piss off every other European club that they play.

I loved Peps comment post match ‘I have nothing to say’ - that says a thousand words!
