I didn't 'vote' as I don't agree with either of the simplistic options given. No dig Andy. I have tho found them a little tedious to watch. I could look it up, but I think they've had a 1-0, a 1-0 and a 0-0 recently. Defensively... they have it wrapped up almost... one of the great (and will be looked upon as such in years to come) attacking sides, but actually, defensively, they're astounding. They can unravel anyone, but they undoubtedly over play the game and have over complicated it for me.
What is it now for Del Bosque?.. 50 odd games and haven't won in 8 of them. That's daft.
They've out sexied themselves tho. I just don't see them mixing it up any more, and have the sense to play the game they're in - it's gone a bit safe. They know they can pass a team to death and unfortunately, that's what they're doing. Comparisons to England and what we'd like to see at Liverpool is a distraction of argument. I'd love to see half of what Spain do at Liverpool, but that's not the point.
I mean why did they choose Negredo the other night? Baffled by that. Llorente yes, Torres? - who apparently had the ball for 23 seconds, 4 shots, two goals and looked alive again in a group game of theirs - he never came on.
There was a moment last night towards the end of the game where Fabregas was the only player playing down the middle... ball was being passed about and Fabregas went and looked for it behind him... just nobody in there at all.
Full of great players, and way beyond (a galaxy) England (who WILL bore everyone to death of the next two years), but over-egging? They almost define the over - egg.
