Whilst a fifth commented: “That’s Angeball in action. Get used to it mate.”
After the match, Postecoglou said: “The first half was good, really good. Barca got the jump on us with that first goal, but the lads reacted really well, our football was good, we pressed really aggressively, and you could see they were uncomfortable with that.
“I was really pleased, but we ran out of legs a little in the second half. To be fair to the boys, they gave everything, you could see that some of the boys couldn’t even run at the end. It was my decision not to make too many substitutions today, and to leave guys at home.”
