      Just need to get our shape back, it was working perfectly first 30 mins.

      We can do this.

      No doubt we will win this game they can’t deal with the tempo.

      Don’t think Gomez has done much wrong to be honest, the first goal Matip got drawn in and was caught out of position with a ball into where he should’ve been.

      The reason im thinking that Matip wasnt drawn in, its becase that's where the line was. Robbo and taa were with him. Gomez just pulled back, and taa had to follow. If gomez just held the line, it would have been offside.

      Not saying Matip was perfect, but he did what he was supposed to do. Hold the line.

      Hendo and naby were strolling back for the 2nd goal. 😔

      In fairness to Hendo he broke his back chasing down in the 2 plays directly before it

      When Salah missed that pen I thought “no big deal, we’re dominating and will score more”. Never thought it’d be so costly.

      Minutes before Milan’s first Trent carelessly gave up the ball and seemed we were too cocky for our own good.

      Hope Jürgen slapped them around during break and they come out reqdy to play.

      I’m scratching my head to understand what Henderson is bringing to this game so far or what position he’s actually playing -CAM,RW, or RCM. I know it’s unpopular to criticize the captain and easier to shift  blame on Divock or Gomez but this man wears the armband and needs to start taking game by scruff of the game.

      You’re not alone there, even when we were dominating I wasn’t really sure what Hendo was doing. Seems to be doing a lot of casual strolling since the kick off without really making any sort of impact.

      Think Thiago, VVD, and Mane have to come on soon to stop the rot ,boss midfield and threaten the defence

      When the team sheet came through and VVD was rested I was pretty sure no matter how the game shaped we would somehow concede.

      Dont kind Joel don't mind Joe. But together it doesn't seem to work and then factor in Joel has played every match so far so must be close to a month out and Joe is playing his first back from a year out, this was a defence that really needed its forwards to get the goals.

      1 million % we will dominate this half but I dont see a victory as anything but an outside chance now. Milan will not get cocky like we did. They will defend their goal and use every trick in the book to slow this down.

      Gomez went with the runner which was the right decision or else he could’ve been played through on goal. Matip got sucked in, the biggest mistake Gomez made was not bollocking Matip to get back in line with the rest of the defence and as a result the ball was played into the gaping area with all the time in the world to pick his spot.

      Did we just manage to blow ourselves out in the first half? Midfield chugging back on that 2nd goal…

      Trent epitomised our first half. Played great and then thought "we're gonna win this, I can start showing off".

      He hasn’t been good, but where were the midfield and defenders ?
      And to think we had 8 great chances inside 20 mins.
      Gonna be tough now, got to go for it but be careful of the counter.
      Any changes need to be made now, not on 85 mins.

      Origi was far down the list of problems in the first half. Hendo, Gomez, Salah, Trent, even Ali all had a worst half than Divock.

      Need to sharpen up this half. Reality check for the sloppiness and overconfidence that crept in.

      Surely Origi will be pulled soon though cos he's costing us when trying to move the ball quickly

      I see it differently Kenny. Il watch it again, if i see what you are pointing out then il quote yoir post to let you know.

      If i dont change my mind and feel im right then i won't and we will just agree to disagree. 🙂
