Like Harry Davis used to do sixty years ago?

If it's an individual, no. Gegenpressing is a team tactic, whereby the team who have lost possession cut off passing lanes around the ball, and smother the space. Which is different from someone pressing. 

 

"Gegenpressing means 'counter-pressing' in German, and has become a buzzword thanks to its most famous proponent, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp, who honed the tactic in his earlier [clubs Mainz and Borussia Dortmund]. As Klopp explained, 'The best moment to win the ball is immediately after your team just lost it." 

 

I will concede, these 'new' tactical terms we throw about are not always new; merely refined from older ideas, and given a more accurate name.

Looks like a fancy Dan term for getting your sleeves rolled up and getting stuck in ?

Would you say it was a bit like being up 2-0 away from home, then conceding four in quick succession ? ?

I think that's the team most of would have expected. A good chance to lay down an early marker in the group and find some more form. Game should certainly offer us a bit more space to play than at Perth.
