    It's a matter of preference I guess, for some here their brain kicks into overdrive when they watch a slow defensive style football and thinks it's attractive. For me, Tata's football was more attractive by a considerable margin, and we were unfortunate with injuries or we could have easily won the double.
    I have a bad feeling that whenever a lesbian looks at me they think “That’s why I’m not a heterosexual”.

    Tata was out of his depth. No excuse for not winning the double with the squad he had.

    The trophies we lost can be pinned to an exact moment where Pinto had a nightmare in goal. Getting beaten from 50 yards out in CL vs Atletico and getting beaten near post by Bale in the Copa. In the league he was the rightful winner but a goal from Messi was wrongfully disallowed.
    On whether or not we'll get 50m for Paulinho

    I'm quite sure they will pay already this January, so I'm happy to do it.

    He was two games away from doing so.

    I think we would have won the double that year if Valdes stayed fit.

    I think he needs more courage and balls.
    And what manager has won more than our players?

    Almost no one. Only Pep and maybe Zidane.

    I want to be excited watching this team again. This guy gives me no excitement. He clearly is in over his head and it’s sad watching this ship sink.

    I know, but when people bring that up, the response is always, "well these things happen to everyone. what if another decision that went your way, didn't happen?"

    Had it been Real in that situation people would've argued that a season is not lost over one match.

    Same goes for people bringing up injuries during that season. Had Valverde managed the same team they would find ways to attribute the injuries to bad rotations or mismanagement somehow.

    Not a Valverde defender, but double standard-o-meter is going off the charts sometimes.


    Tata failed miserably at Barca. He even admitted it himself.

    I think the board are pretty miffed at Valverde thumbing his nose at the new signings. It's clear the board are thinking about the future while Valverde remains anchored to the past.

    I reckon we lose against Sevilla and draw against Inter and Real.

    That's like saying Liverpool would have won UCL if Ramos didnt injure Salah. We cannot look at what might have been. Maybe Messi would have suffered a career ending injury because Valdes injures him in training. It's pointless ro specialty on what may have been.

    We can only look at facts and facts are Tata failed miserably with a world class squad.

    You basically just explained why its stupid to look at things so result oriented when there are (big) factors that can't be controlled by the coach.

    I'm not a fan of Tata btw but this "i only look at titles won and don't care how they were won, how the team performed overall and what the circumstances were" mentally is one that would suggest Valverde is a great coach when he proves the exact opposite every week in la liga.
