    I really don’t know how I feel about this experiment

  • Brad

    Honestly, I’m surprised the ref didn’t find a way to avoid giving that penalty

  • Arjit Barua

    We’re playing MUCH better after the goal but we need to play like that all the time. Also less long balls from defense please!

  • Brad

    RG8: give me 10 minutes, I’ll give you the game!

    Lazy football tonight. Happy for Raul and his vintage goal. Also I remembered one coach’s phrase that a good attack begins with a good goalkeeper – tonight that was the case. Granada’s GK was terrible while Moya, I believe, made not one wrong pass.
