Definitely, good to see that he's starting to score goals, that's a good sign and very important for Atlético.

I don't know to be honest, it's just so frustrating to watch this team constantly concede goals and penalties.

Tough to call, this is so typical..

Agreed, but they were a lot better in the second half, especially since Franco saved Atlético from losing this one, phenomenal save on the goalline by Leo :thumbsup:

They had two shots in the post, one of them in the outside, while a Numancia-player headed the ball into the bar, so they definitely deserve the point.

It's matches like these that Atlético need to win to keep up with the best, but we obviously can't do it. I lost my voice screaming here for nothing, it's pissing me off..

The ref is a home ref.

Before the game his record was:

19 yellows for the Visitor and 4 for the home team.
2 pens for the home no pen for the away team.

Now he even raised this ...

To be honest, we never do well against Osasuna and Numancia, especially against the first. Aguirre is a part of this of course, but the rest of our team needs to take their responsability and perform in these games. The Orihuela game can be solely blamed on the fact that our players missed so many chances and that isn't good enough against a Segunda B-team, but then again, we're still in Copa del Rey while for an example, Real Madrid got knocked out by Real Irún.

Forlán, Simão, the defence and Leo Franco were the only players who did a decent job yesterday. Leo was probably our best player and Diego Forlán should've finished off this game a lot earlier.

Aguirre isn't really a good coach tactically, but it's not his fault that the team can't keep their concentration and concede easy penalties in the end of each game. He can remind them of what's happened in the past, but they're the one's who need to keep it together. I would've liked to see a defensive midfielder in for Agüero in the second half so Atlético could pack the midfield and win posession, but Aguirre obviously didn't see the need of this.

This team doesn't know how to hold on to the ball when they are in the lead, that's the main problem. Aguirre doesn't know when to put in a defensive midfielder and when to play a more offensive line-up.
