Well, not a bad result at all considering the opposition. I have yet to watch the entire match (though it is available on YouTube here), though the highlights which I’ve seen were quite promising. Barbosa stood out for me from what I saw, being actively involved in a few of our scoring chances. Generally, it looks like we were quite effective offensively. I like to see our players not afraid to take some chances when they can (of course they’ll have to convert some of those too, but that can be worked on).
I am slightly worried that Roma scored both goals from free kicks, suggesting that may be a weakness for the team. I find it reassuring that at least that is something specific which can be worked on during training.
Its worth mentioning that we had over 25,000 people in attendance at the match, more than Olympiakos (who had only 7,000 at their first superleague game over the weekend).
