Everyone wants to play Schalke

That’s all I heard before and since the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals, apparently the German side are the weakest team left in the draw.

Personally, I don’t think they are weaker than Inter’s defence, some of those goals I seen on the tele tonight where a total joke. Inter appeared to have no defence, it so un-Inter-like and so un-Italian-like defending. They are certainly more entertaining under Leonardo.

As a team, Tottenham Hotspur didn’t defent too brilliantly either.

Jermaine Jenas picking up Adebayor at the corner for his first goal, no one preventing the short corner for the 2nd goal, Assou-Ekotto showing Di Maria the inside for the 3rd goal and a Gomes special for the 4th.

All 4 goals seemed preventable.

Jamie Redknapp’s analysis of the 1st goal on Sky Sports made no sense either. To blame Aaron Lennon’s late withdrawal as a reason for the marking apparently getting mixed up sounds laughable to me.

Lennon wouldn’t have been down to mark Adebayor, a big man would have been. So too say that was the reason why Jenas ended up marking him sounds a bit limp to me. Spurs obviously just got it wrong.

That means your Dad made a mistake Jamie.

Crouch’s red card was stupid, he owes his teamamtes a big apology and Harry didn’t sound too convinced by Aaron Lennon’s excuse for not playing, it will be interesting to see of any more is made off this.

    It’s sounds like Aaron Lennon bottled it. There can be no other reason for his withdrawal so late before the game.
    The pundits are leaning towards that but no-one is saying it. He should be ashamed.
