2 world wars, 1 world cup At 2-2 we hand it to him as a brilliant stroke of genius. BUT at 2-1 I was cursing him for doing the same old bullshit of trying to hold onto 1-0. How many times have we seen this before? Far far too many times, trying to hold on only for us to eventually concede in the dying minutes. Yet we've also see that when we have nothing to lose and try and attack we seem to manage it. Attack is another form of defence, and had it ended 2-1 I'd have said he got that tried and failed tactic of holding onto a lead completely wrong. But as it happens he got a point and we'll be calling him a genius.
Well, along with tactics and strategies, it's about how well the players execute. Which they did, for the most part.
Some said Pukki would score a bunch, but in fact both their goals were scored by their CB's.
But yes, if we don't equalize, you'd be giving Gomes some flack re. tactics.
