Yeah, i hope they learned from last year. Cause it was a pain to watch that game. I remember Marseille started with a defense almost on the half line letting Torres a ocean of space with his speed. We will see...

I dont think any1 could have stopped Liverpool @ the time, they beat porto in a 4-1 win, and they completely annihilated Beskitas the game before that they were playing very great football, in the closing matches of the group stages

OM started off really well....but they completely fell off in the end

Decent effort by Marseille but poor defending by Zubar cost Marseille the game. Cheyrou had a very good game. Couldn't understand Gerets and him taking off Kone instead of Niang. Niang is very limited where as Kone looks a good purchase. Kone may have been tiring that's the only reason I can think of. Ben Arfa showed his immaturity in this game. He has a long way to go. This is a tough group for Marseille. Would think they can finish ahead of PSV and go into the UEFA Cup. Finishing above Liverpool and Atletico Madrid is asking a lot.

NCNCNC Niang he should have struck that better...Even with a loss OM look good...ben arfa had a pretty poor game, Valbuena and Ziang were the ones that looked great to me, espically in the 2nd half


In the other group game Atl. Madrid beat PSV 3-0

ben arfa will need to have a better game than he did against pool, and OM will need to convert their chances, they had many chances to tie the game in the closing minutes vs. liverpool

IMO sumthing like this

---------Mandanda---------
-Bonnart-Hilton-Zubar-Taiwo
----Cheyrou-----Cana------
--Valbuena--------?????----
----------Ben Arfa---------
-----------Niang----------


Question Fobal Klub or Ziha.......can kone play as a winger??? and where in the midfield does ziani play
