I meant in that they both cry-arse, surround the ref and badger the fuck out of the officials to get what they want, whether it's right or wrong. They also both dive and play act massively, I'd say there's lots of similarities when it comes to their unsportsmanlike behaviour.

I think Atleti are a product of the league they're in, in that Real and Barca have always had extremely favourable refereeing, and Atletico feels they need to resort to underhand tactics to create a level playing field.

Every time I watch Barca and Madrid I don’t see these mythical favourable decisions

If anything I see refs giving it the ‘piss off your not getting my help’

Comes off as very Evertony

It’s far more prevalent in this league towards a bigger team. United and Old Trafford the stand out

I think that's the trick to dealing with them. They rely on drawing you into their twattery, maybe retaliating, getting rattled and maybe booked.

As hard as it might be to do so, rising above it and doing your own thing leaves them looking rather pathetic and stupid. For a team with such obvious talent, they come over as quite pathetic.

Lost count of the number of times they'd leave a foot in after the ball had gone to give our players a sly kick on the ankle or calf.

Absolute shithouse team that are built in their managers eyes.

Yep

Agree so much with what you said in the match thread too. The Everton of Madrid. Except they seem to have used that sour bitterness against other teams and actually built some sort of 'philosophy' out of it. Maybe thats why the bitters are so obsessed with getting Simeone as manager. They've seen an example of someone actually harnessing the bitterness and creating something successful out of it, rather than inviting Barcelona for some tapas and a siesta with their wives when El Classico rolls around.

They're a hard one to evaluate for me. I hate playing them, I hate what they stand for, they're a horrible side and not just in a 'they make it difficult' way, but in a 'why the fuck are you playing like Burnley when you've got some immense players?' way......but then under Simeone they've won two La Ligas, two Europas, one Copa Del Rey, two Super Cups and runner up twice in the CL (and so close to winning both of them) so it obviously works in a very successful way.

They're the sort of team that you almost want to 'out shithouse' just because it seems almost more satisfactory, but then I just don't want us to play that way. The two games this season for me have been perfect. We've outplayed them, outclassed them but their shithousery has twice been punished and hasn't worked. Hopefully it sees them knocked into the Europa and causes some sort of a re-think but I suspect they'll still qualify.

This was extremely prevalent last night

They were embarrassing in front of a full Anfield. It happens in this country, but only really individuals and they soon cut down when they realise how much shit they get for it and how embarrassing they become.

An entire team at it non stop including an Englishman was absolutely pathetic

What was also pathetic was how quiet the Argentinian cheerleader was. Like a little mouse in that setting. He knew he was in too much of a cauldron.

The first booking was a bit of a hint of what was to come with the sending off.

He didn't want to take the booking and was absolutely incredulous that he could be booked so early and for his first one. The sooner all refs start refereeing the foul and not the timing of it the better.

There's nothing wrong with a hard but fair one early on, but yesterday was cynical as fuck and deserved a yellow.

These are a decent side when they play, they are hardly in the Everton or Espanyol league of second clubs. They are huge in their own right and I wonder whether Simeone's shithousery is beginning to hold them back?

it was so awkward on Simeone’s behalf  :D  Get the feeling he realised he’d fucked up with this whole thing - the pretending he didn’t want to appear fake by shaking hands excuse. Even during the game he wasn’t going through his usual put-on act. Then at the end he just stands there, for ages looking rather uncomfortable. I think he just expected Klopp to turn towards him, realised he couldn’t then make a quick exit after waiting, as he’d look even more of a tit than usual.

Given we only play them once in a blue moon I don't really mind the existence of a team like this: they are so annoying to play against but the win in the Metropolitano was the one I felt most all season.

Plus when we show constantly how you can be better without being a shithouse, it just gets kind of embarrassing for Simeone.

“Supporters of the Spanish club were caught on camera appearing to perform Nazi salutes during the quarter-final first-leg tie at the Etihad Stadium. UEFA announced on Friday that disciplinary proceedings had been instigated against Atletico. The club have been charged with discriminatory behaviour and with the throwing of objects. UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) will decide on the matter in due course.”

They've spent £940m in the last 10 years and play football that Burnley would be embarrassed to play. Simeone is clueless how to coach an attacking team and has pretty much fun his course at Atleti.

Just goes to show that if they wanted to play, they can. 2nd half mostly pinned City back and not many teams can do that. Admittedly, City were protecting a lead but still, but they showed against us in the 2nd half too.

Simeone got them competing, but a change of manager and tactics and they might be consistently performing, rather than relying on a siege mentality and spoiling tactics

I'm not sure they want to "compete" or even see themselves as "not competing". At the end of the day, they've finished in the top 3 in every season under Simeone except for his first one I think. That's more than they ever had before. He won them the league, he won them the Europa League and he even got them to the CL final. I would argue that that's a pretty good haul for a team that was clearly behind Real and Barca when he took over. He got them to right into the mix there and I don't really see why people would want to change that. I would imagine they've learned to live with this kind of football and they have been successful with it. Not sure they'd want to give that up for maybe having a classier manager and team that might be less successful. You just need to watch the last couple of minutes of yesterday's match, when the supporters were clapping the team for their effort. There's nothing wrong with that, but at the same time, it was as if they were in some kind of David and Goliath situation. They've fully bought into Simeone's small-time mentality.

Barcelona are in disarray and Real Madrid are not the force they once were. They've spent money akin to that of an elite club, if the board are happy with the status quo then fair enough, but with the players at their disposal, no reason why they can't dominate for a few years

But he's won more trophies than Poch and ETH combined I suspect. Fair do's to Man Utd looking for lesser managers.
