      He’s the highest paid manager in the world by a long stretch and he’s spent a bomb on that squad.

      Unaware he was the highest paid!

      Worth every penny though in my opinion. He's moulded a half decent club into one of the elite & most feared sides in Europe

      Had no idea he was paid so much. Almost twice as much as Pep in 2nd place.

      Simeone was making himself look an idiot with all the cheerleader crap for 90mins and then went running off like a child because he lost.

      Game was crying out for Thiago to be honest, we really lacked someone in midfield taking control of the tempo, hopefully he will be back for the next game.

      Literally forgot we have Thiago, old biscuit legs.

      Hendo, Milner and Keita is a very pedestrian midfield and even substituting Thiago and Fab in there it’s still just as slow.

      Is and will be a huge issue for us unless Curtis and Ox can step up, which I’m sceptical.

      As captain, let’s all agree Henderson had a bit of a shocker.

      Even Fabs struggled to control the midfield - it was the weirdest game ever.

      Atletico were miles better than us with 10 men - just couldn’t work it out, they had so many chances.

      The blind back heel in midfield which resulted in a very dangerous counter attack summed up his day. It’s ok, I’m sure he wasn’t happy about his performance also.

      That was a brave (and correct) refereeing decision to disallow that Atletico penalty. I thought for sure he was going to cave and give it to appease the home crowd. He had a bit of a wobble in the 5-10 minutes after giving the red card where he got conned into booking Milner and gave a few cheap free kicks to Atletico, but on the whole he did a pretty good job.

      The double-whammy for Atletico with the red card is that Griezmann will miss the return game at Anfield which will benefit us.

      9 points from 3 games, 5 points and +6 GD ahead of 2nd place, with two home games to come. Glorious position to be in. Hopefully we'll beat Atletico again in two weeks with Porto not winning in Milan to seal 1st place with 2 games to spare.

      AFter watching the highlights you get to see again what a disaster we were defensively. I still cannot understand how a softly hit ball on the ground from the very top of the box can make it all the way through and no one gets a damn foot on it. Then you have Griezman left all alone by Van Dijk and Matip isn't holding his line so he's putting him onside and it ends up 1v1 on Alisson. Inexplicable.On the 2nd goal, even after Felix gets past Keita, we have our entire back 4 in position and 3 midfielders a few feet away while they only have Felix with the ball, Griezman through the middle and another player on the far left basically out of the play. That's basically 7v2 and we still get scored on like amateurs. Then, once again, an Atleti player, Felix this time, is left alone on the left wing and no one thinks of covering him and we end up needing another save from Alisson. And that was just in the first half.

      I don't know what it is about playing Spanish teams in Spain, but we become bumbling idiots defensively.

      So now we sit 5 points and +6 GD on 2nd place Cuntletico with 3 games to play. Group shaping up very nicely.

      Our midfield was not up for the physical battle but it is a result game and we got what we came for.

      Alisson saved us with so one to ones.

      I don't know what it is about playing Spanish teams in Spain, but we become bumbling idiots defensively.

      To be honest we’ve been like that several times this season. As good as we are going forward, we have some big issues defensively lately. When we concede a goal, it tends to be a sloppy goal and looks as though we could end up letting in more, just look at the horror show vs Brentford.

      Maybe it’s a case of the CBs having spent near on a year out injured and still not quite up to speed, either way, teams are carving through us with ease but luckily Alisson saved us on multiple occasions last night.

      In a group that contains Atletico, Milan and Porto, I don’t think anyone expected us to have 9 points from the first 9, especially with one of the first 3 games being at Atletico. Put ourselves in a great position early on and in full control of the group.

      Mediocre performance but fantastic result!

      I'd rather beat them like that than to have gone on to win 3/4-0 after the great start.

      If Carlsberg did "How to beat a team full of sh##housery, coached by by biggest sh##house c### in Europe", THAT would surely be it.

      More of the same on Sunday, please.

      Non-handshaking tw##!!

      Can't wait for the Kop to rile the f### out of him/them in a fortnight.

      Strange game. Great first 20 but after that .... no nous or composure. Nobody keeping the ball ... without Ali I don't think we would have even got a point.

      That said we kept going and the way it all went down was very sweet.

      Want us to tear them apart at Anfield, secure qualification and then unlike last season when we lost jota for 3 months plus others put the 2nd 11 out for the final 2 games. If Milan or Porto knock those c**ts out I'd be very happy indeed.

      Simione is joint biggest c**nt in football along with the one they have upfront. Id love to rub both their noses in it and bid them both cheerio at anfield.

      Onto Sunday we go ... they are under pressure. Big start needed and we need to tighten up in midfield and in possession and hopefully that will enable us to control the games better and tighten up at the back.

      Glad to get away with the points and no injuries , When Jota got dragged down for our penalty should the offending player have got a red card ? Jota was the last man before their keeper ,Athletico got away with 'pantomime' diving and rolling around that needs punishing with cards .We started off well scoring 2 quick goals ,Naby scoring another cracker ! but our midfield had no tackling or control ,still feel Fab and Thiago are our best options ,Ali ........class!

      Excellent win.  Thought the first goal should not have stood if that is the rule then its daft.  They were constantly trying to do it pushing the off side rule.   If that player isn't there Matip clears that ball.  Matip isn't suppose to know if he is off side.  Bollocks cheating cu*ts.   Whats the point of VAR if the refs are blatantly tried to be conned and they do nothing with the penalty appeal.  Jota did nothing wrong he had to stand his ground.  Cheating dirty cu*ts hope we do them at home which we will and Porto get through, like someone mentioned play the kids against Porto.
