Default football is slowing moving back to the days of free and flowing football

and some people are moaning...

'oh poor defending'
'poor keepers'

do people want to go back to the days of liverpool and and chelsea '0-0's'

i think its good that teams are now having a go. goals galore and good football.

i take that over the phase of 1 goal a game that we had a few seasons ago.

confirmed.

this 'mistake' %@#$&! keeps cropping up.

and tbh its a brilliant way to pick out people who dont know much about football but try to portray themselves as sage's of the sport.

how many goals arent scored as a result of a defensive 'mistake' ?

cant you answer the question billy?

people have been churning out %@#$&! about our game at ot with liverpool and how all their goals came from 'mistakes'

how else are goals meant to be scored. if a chance is taken, its clinical football. simple as that.

the best teams make the least amount of mistakes, they have better players who make less mistakes

$#*! defending isn't the same as free flowing flair football

if you can't see the difference between brilliance and vidic making a complete #%&!ing #@&%! up to let Torres in then there is little hope

what about torres' brilliance in chasing down the ball, forcing the error and his clinical finishing from the half chance?

vidic scores a header...what about the poor marking on the corner or the defender who made a mistake and let vidic get away from him?

Some people even go on Forums relating to the team they are supposed to support, and moan about poor performances from Individuals even though that club is top of its domestic league and has a fighting chance to win every single trophy well into April. You are right Marlo Football fans have changed

erm no

i don't care how well Torres chased it down it was a complete and utter #%&! up by Vidic

Players will always make mistakes but it is not a water tight argument for a new dawn of flair football

i believe the new dawn of which marlo speaks is still in its infancy. only came into being at 7:45 last night.

Very true..

Indeed , it was Helenio Herrera the architect of Catenaccio who said that the perfect game would end 0-0 as that'd mean there were no mistakes.

new era, new dawn.

really can't see it tbh. chelsea's defending in the first half was some of the most nervous and comical i have ever seen and i don' tthink the murderers actually played that well. i'm sure when i read the papers it'll tell me different though.
