Fans in England are also more intense. I think Almiron will struggle mightily if he goes to Newcastle.
Disappointing end to the season, I thought this might have been the best Metro/Red Bull team ever. Last night was better than Sunday, but it was too big a hole and Atlanta had the luxury of being able to sit back and just crowd the final third. Give them credit, RBNY may have been a better team, at least in the regular season, but Atlanta was better in these two games.
Almiron is very good, but I can't stand the flopping. If he goes to the Premier League, he's going to get chewed up if keeps it up. Not defending the fools who throw things from the stands, but Almiron was absolutely acting when he went down grabbing his face. And there were one or two other instances where he went down easily and than faked being hurt. I know people say it's part of the game and he's only getting an advantage for his team, but it's embarrassing.
Could you imagine him taking a tackle from someone like Milner? He would fucking crush Almiron and then get in his face for flopping.
