He didn't play in the first game,in which i think, we didn't have a f**king shot on goal but yeah scapegoat the back up keeper for our failure and not the glory boys.o.k.Until we are linked with another number one to bench sit,there's no point to
Ties aren't won in the first leg, Barca can testify to that. So it doesn't matter if we had a shot in the first game or not because that has no baring on Adrian making 2 howlers and being dogdy all game.
Not a case of being a scapegoat. Were we, or were we not in a position to progress until his 2 errors? By which point we had made amends for not having a shot in the first leg because we'd turned it around.
Why is it when a player who makes such a basic mistake gets criticised for it, it is deemed scapegoating? It's not, it's fact. Not interested in scapgoating anyone, but we had the lead, all we had to do was see it out, Virgil even told him where to play the ball but he ignored it.
As for the "glory boys", you mean the ones that have stepped up time and time again and are a large part of the reason we have the success and superiority we have today? I think they've played their part enough to be excused not managing to break down one of the most stubborn defences on their own turf in a game that was set out to stifle them.
If you are happy for mediocre as cover then that's up to you, I'd just rather have a player who can be relied upon. After his Chelsea showing, I think anyone who says they weren't concerned about him going into the Atletico game would be lying through their teeth. And if you are happy with that mediocre then why didn't you just call for us to keep Migs or Karius? All 3 of them are a massively liability and will cost you goals and games when it matters most, and it seems people are okay with a liability as back up because he's exactly that...backup.
To play for this team you have to be able to handle pressure because the quality and demand is so high, Adrian unfortunately showed he can't handle that pressure. Not his fault, you either can or you can't. But hopefully next season Alisson will have a lot more luck with injuries and this wont even be an issue about his cover.
