@wera can I comment on Lloris not moving for either goal or is that reserved for Slovenian GKs?
never said a goalkeeper not doing his all was reserved only for slovenian GKs

you must mistake me for somebody else

Leverkusen can't beat anyone in Bundesliga and then they go and beat Atletico. :lol:

Eat your tease like a man :D

I'm just poking fun because people think it's news when goalkeepers are 'stunned' and don't move or if they opt not to for other reasons.

It's a very common stance when you concede a goal but apparently at FIF you need to go berserk when it happens.

Tottenham lost to Sporting after having a one week rest. Not a great look for Conte.

Conte has an allergy to European competitions.

Lloris for 90 minutes, saving Spurs ass by any means possible, even got extremely lucky one time - if he didn't play like that it would've been 7-0 at the end

don't see anybody saving those two goals tho :p my argument is for goalkeepers to try to do something when blocking a shot as much as possible. Ofc nobody can do the perfect thing everytime, but actually being proactive and trying is a good thing.

After first two rounds, I can't see how we'll jump over the group. Barca and Bayern look much better than us. Third spot is guaranteed as Pilsen are not strong enough to challenge us for it.

I wouldnt make any judgements yet, Barca looked good but wasteful. Imo we didnt do that bad vs Bayern - yes they did control the tempo of the game, but its not like we didnt have our chances - we just didnt finish them - just like Barca.
Our game with Blaugrana will probably be dictated by them, but if we can improve our finishing we have good chance of beating them.

Pretty sure Bayern will win both games against Viktoria, so if we can win at least the home aganst Barcelona we go like this after 4 games:
Bayern 12 pts
Barça 6 pts
Inter 6 pts

And game 5 is Barcelona-Bayern and Inter-Viktoria.

This is basically a round between Inter and Barcelona, whoever takes the most points in the head-to-head will advance.

The thing is, Barca will likely get point against Bayern at home based on their performance, while we'll leave Munich with zero point.

We really need to get at least 4 points against Barca to think about qualifying.

Nah. He didn't move in Sporting goals, therefore all those who criticize Handanovic for not moving are idiots. 🥴

If we manage to get 4 points from Bracelona, we are through with a win against Plzen, even if Barca wins against Bayern. Math is clear 7 points from 3 games and we are in the knockout, easy as that :D Hopefully after the NT break we will look much better.

About the Barca vs Bayern game result, I actually meant the scenario in which we get 3 points against Barca according to the previous comment.

In that case, both teams will have 6 points after game 4. It still depends which team has the bigger margin to win the h2h. Even if Inter win the h2h and Barca manage to get 1 point against Bayern, we need to leave Munich with a draw, which is not easy.

If Barca win the h2h against us and they manage to get 1 point vs Bayern, that's even tougher. We need a win at Munich.

About the 4 point scenario, yea that's right. And that's what we need here.
4 points secure the qualification if some fuck up doesn't occur vs Viktoria Plzen 😂
