Top five conclusions Champions League matches 21 October

Posted by - October 22, 2009 - Champions League, Conclusions, Lists

1. ITV should have broadcast the Real Madrid-AC Milan match. A mouthwatering contest that for once delivered.

2. Andrea Pirlo knows how to hit a football.

3. Fergie will be delighted to see Antonio Valencia developing a goalscoring streak.

4. Salomon Kalou grabbed two goals but also showed why he is not good enough for Chelsea. A tighter defence than Atletico Madrid’s would not have been so forgiving after his earlier misses.

5. Real Madrid fans might be starting to get a sense of deja vu as the downsides of the galacticos culture re-emerge.

    Madrid could have gotten a pair of top class defenders for half what they paid for Ronaldo. I don’t understand why that never seems to be a priority at Madrid. An attacking culture is fine, it produces exciting football, but Champs League is seldom won by a team that cannot defend.
