MOTM match for me today. Never stopped overlapping, not every cross was brilliant but he made it count when it mattered most.

We are nearly always better with him than without him. 

He gives us good attacking options - am sure we'd have won the European Cup against Milan if he'd been fit.

Experience. That's why I say that he's better than Insua, and the young lad can learn a lot from him.

He was great today. The cross was superb, but otherwise too, his link up was fantastic. Does any other full back (apart from Alves) have vision as good as his in Europe?

How NeilD and Rossi saw the goal:

Aurelio makes last ditch tackle on Drogba after he's rounded Reina. He picks the ball up and skips past 4 Chelsea players before laying the ball off to Dirk Kuyt. Kuyt trips over the ball and (on purpose) breaks Torres' legs, just so he can continue playing regularly, by falling on top of him (he later gives half a dozen interviews about this). Aurelio wins the ball back again, this time beats 7 players, before playing a one two with Rossi himself in the crowd, and getting through on goal. From there on in he nutmegs Cech, flicks the ball up and catches it under his shirt and walks the rest of the distance to the goal with the ball under his shirt, immitating a pregnant woman. This is somewhat ironic, because he's just impregnated every man, woman and child inside of Anfield with his awesomeness.


How Azer saw the goal:

Ball is passed to Aurelio whose ankle shatters upon attemting to control it. He tries to get back to his feet by tears every ligament in his body upon doing so. Then, when the wind changes direction, every other bone in his body shatters. After the game, as he makes his way out of Anfield in a wheelchair, he deliberately rolls over Azer's foot, pet tortoise and cat, and goes rolling out of control into his car, making it a write-off. He makes no apology for this.




It was typical Aurelio. He's a neet footballer but was only really a threat when they were down to 10. Up until that point he was just relying on his passing, which is pretty good, but didn't really make up for the lack of running in behind.

Wasn't any more impressed with him than I was with Arby on the other flank.

I was very impressed with Fabio's all round play today.

Thought he was MOM even before he hit the ball in for Fernando.

Showed  how to run to the bye line and give Torres a chance with a good cross.  Just hope he can stay injury free.

I thought Alvaro Arbeloa was very good today - provided an excellent out ball time and time again down the right.  Impressed with both of our fullbacks today.

Ironic too - considering many on these pages see left and right back as positions in which we are notably weaker than Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United (thatsaid, i'm sure there are stats...).

Excellent.

Experience. That's why I say that he's better than Insua, and the young lad can learn a lot from him.

That's why Insua won't be ahead of Aurelio (when he's at full fitness). Fabio played from the start of the season untill november 22nd before Insua came into the team after he got injured. I reckon we'll still see Aurelio as number 1 this season with Dossena and Insua being used to keep him rotated and not over worked - If he can last until the end of the season, he'll be crucial against Madrid and in the run-in I bet. Next season, I'm not so sure he'll be able to keep out the competition though.

Thought he was ok today without being amazing. Certainly got into the game a lot more 2nd half and having Yossi ahead of him drifting infield probably helped. Quality cross though, our only of the game I think so he's got the quality that's for sure.

Some of the comments on here are just hilarious. A few people must have bloody noses from the knee jerk reactions.

Aurelio overlaps for the first time in the game because Gerrard goes out to make it 3 on 1 to give Aurelio the time he needs to set himself and actualy produce.

Good cross, no getting away from that. I have said before that he is good on the ball when he has plenty of time and there is no one within 20 yards of him. Sadly, we dont always play against 10 men who were run all over the place by gerrard and alonso.

Lets have an honest critique here of his "MOTM" (LOL) performance against chelsea:

In Defence: Solid Performance. Wasnt under the cosh and did nothing wrong.

Getting Forward: average. Counting the number of times Arbeloa got pass the half way line compared to Aurelio and you will see what i mean here. The cross was superb, no getting away from that, but it was gerrards drive to get out and create the 20 yards that aurelio needs that allowed him to cross. Time and time again when we went forward there was acres of space out wide with kuyt and reiria cutting in whcih both our fullbacks should have attacked, Aurelio was less effective than arbeloa than that.

General play: above average, doesnt make the same forward runs as we have seen dossena do and not as solid as Insua has proven to be over his brief stint but he was better than he was in most of his previous games. As for a MOTM performance....well that is plain ridiculous. Alonso, Torres, Gerrard even Skrtel and Benayoun were way out ahead in that race.

Anyway, i'll give credit where it is due. Good game by Aurelio. Arbeloa however was just as good.

I'd agree with that. A nice assist doesn't stop me from remembering a number of pretty average plays from Aurelio. In fact, for the most part, Arbeloa was a lot better, in my opinion of course.

the lad was not helped by a labored riera on the left flank but still managed to produce a lot of overlap runs and put some decent crosses in. the assist to torres' first goal was simply class - full of spin and power and it only took torres a split second to flick in.

after lampard was sent off, the lad just kept running forward and his off the ball movements certainly created space for us to add some width to our attacking play. later on when yossi was introduced to play on the left hand side fabio ran forward even more frequently.
