Just finished watching the game! Purchasing Salah this summer was a masterstroke. Bayern was forced to keep 2 defenders back when they were attacking and along with the keeper, it left 8 men attacking 10 and the keeper. I know, I know, everybody knows that, but to see it in action and against Bayern. Our speed up front allows us to partially ‘park the bus’ and defend with two more men than the opposition can afford to send forward. Every time the back two moved too far forward, we hit them with the counter. The concern on the face of Ancelotti was something to see – we really scare teams, GOOD teams! This is going to be one of the more interesting seasons in recent memory (everybody just stay healthy – Daniel).
Who says Daniel has lost a step? He continually got behind the Munich back four and should have scored more than the one he converted. Hope the old bugaboo about injuries does not curtail his season (and he just picked up a dinger). When you add Daniel to the front four, you almost feel sorry for the opposition – almost! Gonna quit while I’m ahead before I commit a futbol faux pas and blow the whole thing. MMM – oops old age flash back, I mean YNWA.
