Have you read my reply to you (which is completely in agreement with you btw)? People might listen to your point if you got the game right. There are probably people right now rewatching the CL final wondering what you're going on about.Have you read my post? tell me what he did differently to VVD in the final? As a defender, you have to cover what I would term as the killer pass, the one which would have put a player 1 v 1 with the keeper and he stopped this, also did you see Adrian's positioning? it showed him actually in line behind Gomez so he didn't cover the majority of the goal which was where the shot went in.
With regards to no man's land, he was in no man's land once Barclay broke through, as the defender all you hope is that the forwards make a fuck up as they are in the ascendency 2 v 1 and on this occasion Barclay hit a good shot.
Blaming Gomez for this is a joke, if you consider what VVD did with Sissoko as being excellent and most pundits did.
