ESPN FC’s Steve Nicol, Shaka Hislop and Sid Lowe look back at Atletico Madrid eliminating reigning UEFA Champions League champions Liverpool. The FC guys says Atleti’s tactics under Diego Simeone should come to no surprise as Jurgen Klopp was critical post-match of their style of play. Sid Lowe does not like Klopp’s use of “proper” when describing Simeone’s tactics because he shouldn’t dismiss differing types of football.

  1. ‘Cost Liverpool the champions league’- the arrogance is unreal lol just pinning the entirety of a teams failure on one man just to make the argument for nicols Liverpool.

  2. LFC: Play us at our own game, we'll batter you but say how plucky you were in post-match press conference. Play defensively, and take your chances when they come; we'll whine that you aren't playing 'football'. Brilliant. LFC have much more money than Athletico; obviously they have better players. Even more reason to congratulate Simeone; masterclass.

  3. The complaining makes no sense it is a masterclass. They beat the team nobody thought could be beat. Why do they have to play a style you want or like. Klopps bitchin let everyone know that he was totally beat.

  4. Suck it up.. Its 90 mins 11vs11 and defending is part of the game just like attacking. At the end the goals sets the winners and loosers. Who cares about the styles WINNING GAMES IS WHAT MATTERS

  5. Liverpool are just frustrated that they couldn't breakdown athletico and lost. Had they won the game,no one would have said a word about athleticos tactics.

  6. All what matters in football is win the game no matter what or how you play. Playing all attack and loss won’t win the fans over, all what matters is to win Liverpool has loss that’s final.

  7. Atletico Madrid:*defensive football*
    Pundits: Its anti football
    Liverpool: cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross cross
    Pundits: Oh dear Oh dear gorgeous

  8. I remember when Inter Milan did nothing but defend against Barcelona to win the champions league final and dont forget when Chelsea did the same thing to beat Barcelona with the Torres goal please Liverpool admit you got whooped by a masterful tactician Simeone,last year Liverpool did a similar thing with Barcelona in the second leg as the kop is a very tight pitch and therefore left back Alba was shutdown due to not being used as Camp Nou is huge in comparison so yes Liverpool take it on the chin like Barcelona did last year and stop crying about spilt milk and thanks as its Barcelonas turn the Catalans year Barca for life!!

  9. Have you seen liverpool after winter ? The chemistry was dead. The best attacking trio in the world made me question why they were even given the title. All they resorted to was crossing every 5 minutes. Simeone didn’t show a masterclass. He just outclassed klopp’s and his boys crosses.

    People may not remember this but spain was eliminated by russia in the world cup the same way.

    And in such situations what do you expect the other team to do ? Play attacking football even if they loose ? For what, so that these so called pundits can sit and be like yeah they were good but klopp was a genius like always ?

  10. So what did you want simeone to do ? Be like I am getting a huge budget, forget about winning the tie, let’s change our game plan so fans can enjoy and be eliminated ?

  11. Simeone is a tactical genius just look up some of the tactical analasys videos on him it really isnt as simple as ”parking the bus”. Atlético had to do this to get through why should they just have let Mane and Salah through. They play very differently against different teams.

  12. Atletico were too defensive and still managed to score 4 while Liverpool were playing lob the ball into the center and hope someone can hit it.

  13. Liverpool finally lose at anfield and the team that beats them is accused of playing the wrong kind of football and should stop LOL

  14. Atleti might be anti-football but Liverpool only have themselves to blame. They missed almost all of their chances and threw it all away at the end with shocking defending. They're their own biggest enemy at the moment

  15. Since when is there a rule that you HAVE to play football a certain way. This is the stupidest and laziest excuse teams make when they lose and idiot ESPN pundit when they have to eat their words again. Defending is an art and equally important part of football, so if you cant find a way around it, that's your problem.
