    Messi and especially Neymar lost the ball many times, because they almost always received the ball with one or two players around them. It is explained very good in the video above. They forced us to play through the left side of the pitch where Neymar would receive the ball with one player on his back and one or two around him closing down passing lanes.

    Eusebio destroyed Enrique with tactics and when his players saw that they completely dominate the pitch, their morale and intensity grew, while our morale went to shit. You could see it in players faces. Even Pique looked lost.

    In the last years, our squad was never full of terriers that can play intense games. We always relied on tactical and technical superiority. At the moment, our tactics are ridiculous and technical level definitely dropped. So we have what we have.

It is not like Real will win all the other games rofl, neither will we, but we are still in NOVEMBER, it is not even half a season gone. Reals lucky streak with 2-1 wins will end at some point, they have not really been impressive.
    Exactly. First of all to explain... 2 wins vs Real and we are even with them. But even better than at zero start. Because we have better difference in mutual games (can't remember now what is the exact english phrase).

    So. There is no need to panick now and yell we are doomed because if we win at saturday (and I do believe we will win in Madrid) we will catch them (and overtake them) cause Real eventualy will start to loose (of course if we beat them LOL, but also against others) and we can't go worse than 1st half against RS. So we will go ahead of them in one moment for sure. Now it is as bad as it gets. 1t half in RS. Now it is only up to Barša to win Classico and start the hunt. Barša will rise, Real will fall. Barša just has to do its work and win win win. Remember last year. it was 10 pts difference at some time and it got real HOT. This is minor 6 compared to that. And so early in season.

    Don't rely have to time to elaborate it more but I think that we both agree abut it, just aproaching from different sides

    Yesterday, the defense was under heavy pressure and the MSN and midfield did not know how to properly break the deadlock on defenders, which made defenders play long desperate balls in hopes of individual pieces. Here's a video demonstrating:
