gosh, what a tough game
we played crap and...was it really miccoli who scored?
I ( and everyone around me) thought it was actually beto...im glad to know it was miccoli, our best player tonight, impressive game
we were really poor tonight, never really owned the game, and either looked too nervous ( specially in the beginning of the 1st half), or else looked " absent" and already thinking about the CL 2nd leg ( most of the 2nd time).
belenenses 1st goal came after a childish loss of ball from karagounis, who i must say had a terrible game. If it wasnt for scoring the 2nd goal, i would say we were playing with one player less all game long.
I guess it showed that we cant count on him to start a game unfortunately.
between the 1st goal and till the break, we had our best moment imo. Looked more secure and created a couple chances...not many, coz the game was poor in goal opportunities.
the 2nd half was bad, poorly played by both teams, very confusing, and the referee didnt help....people called for penalty, from both teams, but tbh, it didnt seem like it was penalty to me, in neither occasions. Still the ref was stopping the game constantly.
leo almost scored an amazing goal ( hit the bar), and was imo, our 2nd best player tonight ( nothing we are not used to by now :thmbup
beto was decent during the 1st half, terrible in the 2nd..petit was not our petit, luisao missed a lot of balls, but was able to hold the high ones, simao should not have played the ENTIRE game on the right, with manduca on the left...once more koeman proved how clueless he is by failing to "read" something so simple, so when it was obvious that our wings never really worked tonight.
geovanni didnt come in well, nuno had to leave to early and in pain...was it very serious?
oh well....we got the result though, the most important in the end
ill upload some pics, all from before the game though, becoz once the ball started to role, i got too stressed to worry with the camera
