Technically second best
Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It’s only painful to others.

The same applies, when you are stupid

I just don't get Atleti, spend over a £100m on a player yet still play like a Pulis team. Yes it is effective and they are very good at what they do but I wouldn't want to watch it every week.

Liverpool goalkeeper cost them the game when they were coasting to victory, you won't see a more one sided loss.

It's very difficult to break down organised and pragmatic teams with average players, when you have a collection of very good players set up in such a fashion it can be highly effective at the highest level.

It isnt the modern trend to play that way at the top echelons of the game which from an entertainment point of view is a blessing but football goes in cycles and I can see more teams adopting a more defensive approach before too long.
