Well the scouse stew got stuck in our throat tonight and now its going to be hard work qualifying for the next round with only 1 point from 2 matches.
The first half performance was poor especially Orhan Ak, but then better defenders will struggle against Crouch. It also seemed like the team was slower and not prepared for the speed of an English team, even it was Spanishpool.
The second half was much better, I guess Gerets put a rocket up the teams collective ass and even though we conceded on more goal the fact that we scored two and had two penalty appeals waved away gives me some hope for the rest of the season. Sabri had one of his best games for a long time and so did Umit but why did Gerets start with Topal and not have Hasan on from the start.
Also look at Anfield, I wonder if the board understands the importance of home advantage yet, all the websites talk about Ali Sami Yen being intimidating so why the hell are we playing at the Olympic Stadium!!!!!!!!!
Anyway the group is still open, two teams on 4 and two on 1 after 2 games but we will have to win our next game against PSV to have a chance, we have done that before so here's hoping......
