    Wouldnt say he screwed them up. There were some well-taken ones among those. But some were well-saved. Like the one recently where an opposing player ran back to the goalline to block it.

    You are right. To "screw those up" was a too harsh way to put it. That's why I tried to soften it by "more or less"...
    (His free-kicks have never been truly strong, that's why his great precision is the killer ingredient. But he actually banged some of them 2-3 meters too high, which lacked his usual precision...)
    When the kick was give at the left, I frankly wouldn't have minded Coutinho to try at least some of them...

    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    What now? We are selling him too because we are going 4-4-2?
