  • Dredd

    The only change is the swap of Gabi for Saul! Aupa Atleti!

  • Brad

    Atleti dominating possession…and doesn’t know what to do with it XD

  • Kris

    Today is when set pieces are needed. Cordoba are stubborn. They are gonna stay back forever.

  • Brad

    If Frente Atletico is going to borrow the Tomahawk from Florida State, they really need the hand motions too.

  • GRIEZMANN!

  • Brad

    GRIEZMANN! Off the set piece.

  • Brad

    It’s nice to see a FULL Calderon

  • I want to see Cerci in the second half!

  • Brad

    I want to see Diego Simeone making sensible substitutions in the second half!

  • Kris

    It’s gonne be really hard to score another goal now.

  • Brad

    Trying to figure out why they let so many Cordoba fans in…if Real and Barca can not sell to Atletico fans why do we sell to other teams fans?

  • Brad

    especially since Cordoba can just play defense and be happy with a draw…

  • Brad

    or roll around on the ground in agony if they get touched…

  • GRIEZMANNNNN! (again!)

  • Brad

    GRIEZMANN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kris

    Exactly! But oh shit, Griezmann with another. Hope he scores a hattrick.

  • Brad

    and we may have our second broken nose on the year…

  • Brad

    Arda out RG8 on

  • Brad

    MANDZUKIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kris

    Arda may not look great when you look at his stats, but what this guy does for us is like what Iniesta does for Barcelona. Great player! And a Mario Mandzukic goal!!

  • Super Mario!

  • And Mandy with one!

  • Brad

    He’s just got that something special that lets him create plays for his teammates

  • Kris

    I hope Koke comes off for Saul. Koke deserves some rest.

  • Brad

    but it’s gabi

  • Brad

    which leads me to believe he’s not back to full strength

  • Brad

    Cebolla coming on soon…I guess we won’t get to see Cerci today :/

  • Cebolla instead of Cerci and Jimenez!

  • Brad

    though i wish Griezmann had stayed in,

  • Brad

    RG8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brad

    We need to play a complete game…no consolation goals in the mid to late 80’s

  • Chewie

    Juanfran is a fucking idiot, I believe he messed up in both goals, first losing Ghilas and then losing concentration. But I guess that’s the price you have to pay for playing a more attacking football.

  • Brad

    Hey, if we were Real or Barca, the refs would have awarded us random penalties and let us run up the score. But we got the win our way.

  • Kris

    You can’t blame than on the attacking football, they were all back there when the goal happened. It was a stupid rookie mistake from Juanfran to signal for a foul or offside, when the opponent is about to score against you. Moya also should have commanded his box much better, he simply wasn’t able to do that.
