Besiktas eight no guide to real Reds
Will the real Liverpool kindly stand up? I pose the question, because due to confusion as to whether the team I watched break a UEFA Champions League record on Tuesday night is the genuine article, or in fact a complete figment of my imagination.
I usually enjoy listening to what Bernd Schuster has to say about football. The Real Madrid coach is one of the more intelligent managers in the game, and generally doesn't deal in nonsense. Nevertheless, Schuster should have kept his mouth shut after Saturday's 2-0 defeat away to Sevilla. Comprehensively outplayed by the Andalucian side, Real Madrid elected not to accept their fate with grace. Instead, Schuster had a verbal go at referee Alvarez Izquierdo.
