    Le Prat™® - 'Rafael had Bale in his pocket'

    the system with just crouch upfront works well against lesser teams.

    but your utds,chelseas, & arsenals are too clever for that.

    he should have started with defoe upfront as he would turn the CBs, make runs & create space & be sniffing around in the area for any chances.

    crouch is too immobile to be a lone striker against top teams.

    which meant when bale & modric had chances to put balls in the box they had to be inch perfert for a usually marked crouch who most likely would be beaten to the ball by vidic anyway.

    harry got his tactics wrong.

    bale got far too much time and space to cross from silvas point
    of view.

    according to your logic topofthetree, defenders can make as many mistakes as they like as long as they dont lead to goals.

    i dont think fergie will be hiring u as defensive coach anytime soon.

      where did i say that?

      and you said harry got his tactics wrong, its not me looking to do someones job but im sure you might get an award from harry for stating the obvious.
      had you won, it would have been the right decision, had he played your way and lost, you would have said the same, hindsight is wonderful, but it wont get you the job harry is doing so well in.

      • by saying did bale make any assists or score?

        u are excusing silva mistakes.

        i dont think bale was that dominant but i thought he looked threatening & tormented silva at times.

        his final ball let him down which wasnt helped by just having crouch to aim at.

        harry is doing amazingly well. im more than happy with harry as manager but he is only human & does make mistakes.

        fergie is the best manager in england but he still regularly makes mistakes. playing giggs for 90mins today despite being poor for most of it. playing out of form carrick instead of anderson?

        all questionable.

        harry is a top manager & even if we dont finish in the top 4 i think it would be stupid to even discuss sacking him.

        my handsight wasnt just this game.

        its the crouch as the lone striker system iv disagreed with against the top teams. it seems to work until we play a good organised team. defoe gives us that someting extra.

    • If Bale had bene as dominant as you think he was them why did all the SKY pundits say his battle with Rafael was a good contest? Not one of them said that either player was winning that battle.Yes Bale got some crosses in but there were times when Rafael stopped him and also Bale didn`t do enough to stop Rafael`s forward runs.
