Maicon's never been much good at defending. He's not just inept; he's lazy and unfocused, particularly after not getting to follow Mourinho to Madrid over the summer. He just got found out more than usual tonight because he came up against a direct player who can match/beat him for pace. Inter tonight reminded me of Liverpool in Benitez's last season, after Alonso left. In fairness to them, they were without the best defensive midfielder in the world and their other first choice centre midfielder, but they were still shite.
