the thread purpose was debunked....even by your Spaniards

you are still arguing.

ok


We aren't sheep. Most of here understand football and don't need Simeone to tell us the obvious LC does not play football like Atleti does. That was the point of this thread.


True.

Brits like Diego Simeone (and Felipe Luis, Antoine Griezmann, Jan Oblak) just toe the line with what the Brit press says. down with Babylon

You dey mind Yujam. He is denial personified. His 'gulf' = 2-1 goals aggregate.

...and one of the goals technically shouldn't have been awarded.

But I do agree that Atleti is superior. I think what the English press meant by the comparison was that they're both underdogs that managed to win their domestic leagues despite more heralded opponents...doing so with grit, determination and hard work. I'm not sure they meant they're as good as Atleti mano-a-mano.

Kpom!

I have the privilege of being a studio guest at a weekly radio sports show. Before the 1st leg, I suggested that Vicente Calderon was gonna be a cauldron for Leicester but they came out with a 1-0 deficit, losing to a controversial goal. Last Sunday, I said that there was no way Leicester were gonna beat Atletico by 2-0 without Atletico scoring. I recall Atletico carrying a lean lead like that to Bayern and came out tops eventually last season. All Atletico often need is just a chance per game.

Point is that no one said Leicester were better than Atletico but there were similarities in playing style and this isn't unconnected with coaching. Atletico however have far more illustrious players and probably more organized than any side in Europe let alone Leicester. Should Diego Simeone leave Atletico, things will obviously change in the playing styles.

It is not difficult to understand what you quoted. Point is there is a little basis for comparison since Atleti has a far superior style to Leicester. They retain the ball better, play more intelligently, defend better and are more successful. The Atleti players and Simeone pointed out some similarities in core characteristics such as grit and determination but that's where it ends.

Quote:
Antoine Griezmann said it, Filipe Luís said it and Jan Oblak said it, too: Leicester are similar to Atlético, both for what they have done – and they more than most teams in this competition appreciate that – and for how they play. Strong, physical, well organised. Difficult to overcome defensively, and swift to counter‑attack, direct.
