I think he played concussed for a few minutes :/ Hopefully he's ok!
Ok I was really nervous before the match about Sandro and Palacios in the midfield but they did really well! Here's a good explanation.
Gomes made some amazing saves after halftime.
OK this is where I will let my "YES I MAD" fly free. I understand that players sometimes make bad tackles but ffs if they're going to act like a total prick afterward, trying to get the crowd riled up and accuse the injured of timewasting, and then get the rest of the team to get on the ref's case, well. That's another thing. I know referees can't see everything all at once and be perfect the whole game but I can't see how he couldn't give this a red, honestly.
tbh I really don't care about Gattuso's actions, but if they can punish the headbutting, I don't see why they can't penalize Flamini for unsporting behavior for what he did afterward. /my two cents
Anyway, Corluka was taken off and Jonathan Woodgate had his first start in about a thousand years (since November 09)
lol he picked on someone his own size
At halftime Harry said pass the ball to Aaron.
Calm before the storm...
It is understood that the Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic intervened between Gattuso and Bassong in the tunnel, picking up one player under each arm to separate them. For all the bad feeling between the two sides, Ibrahimovic's actions calmed the situation and his directness – not to mention his strength – were the source of some amusement among the players.
Perhaps the return leg won't be so acrimonious?
Anyway, the tackle was a nasty one but what of the injury layout?
Premier League - Corluka to return within weeks
The Croatia international was carried off on a stretcher after being pole-axed by a wild two-footed tackle by Milan's former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini in the second half of the last 16, first leg clash.
"Vedran will remain immobilised in a protective boot for the next four days after a scan determined that he had sprained part of his ankle joint capsule," Spurs said on their website on Thursday.
"Following a clinical examination by a foot and ankle specialist this afternoon, it has been recommended that Vedran make a gradual return to training starting next week... he should be back in full training in a few weeks."
There were initial fears that Corluka had suffered a more serious injury after a tackle Spurs manager Harry Redknapp described as "horrendous".
Tottenham's former England defender Jonathan Woodgate, who made his first appearance for 15 months when he replaced Corluka against Milan, strained a left adductor muscle and will be assessed over the next few days, the club added.
