Those were different kind of exits though in truth. We were the better team for much of the 180minutes of regular time and suffered a come back win in injury time which are always a kick in the teeth to take. At least I think that's what he meant by it.It’s not once in a decade game of football is it… I can think of Spurs, Chelsea, Liverpool, Monaco, Lyon and Madrid where we have conspired to defeat ourselves with either odd team selection, tactics or failing to manage to the game
incidentally I found most of those games great entertainment but just once I’d like to win one of them
We will never win this with Pep.he just doesn’t put the motivation needed into the players. You gotta want it more than anything.
If you're saying that's why we lost tonight, that's nonsense. I've said all along that we were the better side over the 2 legs and they didn't have a single shot on target tonight, Their second goal was a total fluke. Benzema bought the pen, then they just disrupted the rest of ET and I timed the stoppages at over 7 minutes - we weren't even given the full three. As someone else put it, 999 times of of 1000 we win that.Difference at the top is being clinical. Over two legs no one can tell me Madrid are a far superior side to us, but the difference is they have a world class CF who scores big goals at important times. Pep will get slaughtered in the press, but we had enough chances in the first leg to beat these easily we didn't and was punished.
