From whatever way we look at it we played very well tonight, and that is the truth. The only thing lacking in our play was the final finish, and in the end a goal. Some of the positions we were in were immense, and if that final pass was there we would have won by a few goals.
The Adebayor over hit pass comes to mind, with Fabregas in an amazing position, with the defense left behind. I can think of a few more the same. This would have been a fantastic result away from home, but now we have to go to the San Siro and battle for our lives. To get an away goal there would be superb, and could and would win us the game, and the tie. I know in the League they haven’t been the best at home, and we can and will take advantage of that.
I believe that tonights performance can really encourage us to go to Italy and get the result. However, how great would it have been to win tonight? With a clean-sheet and a two-goal advantage- A status Liverpool now have against rivals Inter. On a positive note, my word Walcott looked good when he came on. This is obviously me getting over-excited as all he did was get a shot on target and place a world-class cross on the head of Adebayor, whom should have scored. It would have been a perfect ending to the game which I thought we dominated nearly all-throughout. Looking at the battle in midfield I thought we were far superior. Flamini kept Kaka very quiet and I thought Fabregas had an outstanding game. He completely outclassed a world-class Milan midfield, and in my view made them look average tonight. What a game he had. To end, lets be confident that we can go to their crib and do them over. Play like we did tonight and a few goals my finally come our way in the end. Up the Arsenal.
