Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Congratulations. Great game to watch. Liverpool overwhelmed City from the start. They were in their faces and pressed and tackled everything in sight.
City were put off their game and fLiverpool's devastating attack took what chances came.
AS you say City improved in the second half and Liverpool ( despite missing a couple of defenders,) held City at bay and prevented that important away goal.
The two fullbacks were fantastic causing havoc in the city defence in the first half and then adapting to the change which meant they had to defend. They were very impressive now in keeping City out.
Of course it is not over yet, this was only the first half - so to speak.
One thing that spoiled things was the attacking of City's Team Bus as they arrived. This could have upset some of the city players.
But as I say, congrats and I look forward to the next one.
Ps I hope Maurinho took some notes of Liverpool's approach when we meet City on Saturday.
