Feel like a dinosaur pundit from the 70s but with the way he won the ball, whilst sort of withdrawing, makes me think he rightfully got away with it, just. Could obviously see why people think otherwise with the way he left the ground
Find the talk around Bravo insane. Two weird extremes
So many British pundits and ex-players seem monumentally thick, like he’s a promising young goalkeeper from a midtable team, rather than a guy who just won two league titles in two years at one of the biggest clubs in the world and was largely excellent. And the way they talk about La Liga as if no Spanish clubs press the keeper, every club bar Madrid and Barca and shite, and the likes of Burnley and Sunderland are some great challenge. As if Spanish clubs haven’t absolutely outclassed at both tiers of European competition and Sevilla didn’t just absolutely school Klopp’s Liverpool. Alaves have taken four points at the Nou Camp and Vicente Calderon ffs.
That being said, seen a lot of talk online from people that get the above, but have gone too far in going in denying that he had an absolute disaster of a game. Gifted them a goal, gifted them a chance that was as easy as the first and Ibra should’ve scored, being very lucky not to give away a penalty and be sent off, and several other unconvincing moments - could’ve singlehandedly destroyed one of the best premier league performances I’ve seen in years. Obviously that should be a concern, but I did enjoy Jenas highlighting how often his distribution was good and how, when he’s not making blunders - which I’m confident will be the case - he’ll be a good fit. Think the first goal was just a communication issue tbh, which should improve, and that might’ve just been what knocked his head of sorts for the remainder…
