Nxa. We are talking positive football while defending and you mention that park the bus performance by Man U when Rooney played right back for 90 mins :roll: :| :arrow:




Samora, that Man U performance was a defensive masterclass with a lot of positive football, especially the 2nd leg at OT, that team had Ronaldo, Tevez and Nani causing all sorts of problems, that tie is right up there with the best, and no wonder that same Man U team went on to win that year's Champions League.

It's simple, when certain teams defend well, it's an art, and when other teams do it, its shameful parking of a bus :taunt:

Because of the number of black players in their squad?



most certainly ! :sneaky:

And also as a reward for shoving Pep and City out of CL in style :rotf:

But most importantly for their displays, i know from now on they face the real big tests, the teams left right now are no joke, but i'd love it if they knock Real Madrid out.

Monaco vs Juventus is my dream Final

Benteke if Madrid defend the way they did last night Monaco will take them to town. Simple as that. Mbappe and Falcao will keep them on heir toes all night. Now I want Monaco to win the damn thing

Juventus will be a hard team to beat, that defence is solid, must be favourites for the champions league for me

Monaco should not accept anything less than a straight £100million for Mbappe, any EPL club must pay more than £89M that was paid for Pogba :thumbs:

Still young and first season but again when likes of Pogba are costing 89million then why not ask for 120 million for Mbappe.I will want to see him do it back to back and back 3 straight season .

This is the best Monaco team since the Henry-Trezeguet version. The LB Mendy is a machine and the kid Mbappe will be heading to Spain or England soon. I like the fact they play with the accelerator floored. Attack-attack-attack...

This is what happens when the referee is strong and doesn't start flashing cards and awarding phantom penalties when Neymar and Suarez throw themselves to the floor.

Its not that simple. But the simple thing here is that knowledge has failed you.

Defense (note the spelling) as an art is an Italian specialty.

What Jose does is not defense art, but anti-football, most exemplified by his Inter team which chose to not have the ball in a football game! Imagine what would happen to the sport if half the teams decided they did not want the ball?

You will note, if you were paying attention, that the game was being controlled in large part by Juve, but from a defensive orientation, and always, ALWAYS with the threat of a successful attack.

@Coach,

You may want to revisit the tactics thread. The Azzurri are slowly coming back...mark my words!

so football has now been broken down into pro- and anti- football

I suppose the United v Chelsea game was also anti-football, nothing to do with defensive art

denying your opponent the opportunity to score is now anti

Exactly which game did Jose's Inter refuse to have the ball ?

I remember that they won the CL Final with a very disciplined approach that involved well chosen moments to attack, and they won clean and fair.

I was replying Samora that the Man U vs Barcelona tie was another great defensive perfomance that involved attacking flair not just parking the bus, and if i am not mistaken, Carlos Quieroz was still around and he drilled the boys well in defensive organisation.

Is this Falcao fella the same statue that played for Man Utd a couple of years ago? He finished that diving header like he was still playing for Atletico Madrid.

Recovery from those injuries no be joke. It also didnt help that United was a side in flux.

Good point. It could not have been easy to adjust to LVG's 'philosophy' while coming back from a career threatening injury, after moving to a new country.

Sometimes moving to a different country doesn't work out well for some players. What annoys me is English journos always use it as a measure of how rough the EPL is and that said player isn't up to standard whenever a player is struggling in the epl
