    Some matches are not comparable. Chelsea was prepared, studied our game well, they were fresh and they went for it.

    Conclusions like 'Chelsea lost to City at Stamford Bridge, imagine what City would do to us' are childish and pointless.
    Not saying City wouldn't beat us, to be clear. I don't have a clue.

    Yes average coaches deliver trophies. Scolari is a shit coach and everyone knows that and he won brazil the WC. Because that brazil team was once in a generation kind. Same as our barca under lucho. Stop boring me now specially when you consider that subjective opinions are a thing.
    OMG, your original quote was this "Who would have said after the treble season that lucho was an average manager?"
    Which should ring every alarm bell in every thinking person. Coaches just dont go from great to average in a matter of season lol. What kind of kindergarten logic is this: win treble - great manager, not win treble next season - average. Which is why subjective forum troll opinion means shit really.

    Yea, Rakitic and Paulinho both have to be in top form for us to have any chance to control a game properly. And since they aren't very young, chances of that happening are slim.

    This defensive 4-4-2 would have worked good, if we had a great RM/RW player.

    Oh wait, we have him. But he is playing at RB.

    Was comparing the results since the previous post implied that City would trash Chelsea without breaking much sweat.

    RM has Casemiro, they brought him when they realized that Isco-Modric-Kroos midfield is too fragile defensively and it worked for them. Our team is unbalanced, Roberto has trouble defensively, Iniesta is 33, Messi defends when he wants, so you need players that would take the defensive duties from them, nothing ridiculous about that. Hopefully with arrival of Coutinho and Arthur the midfield will become more balanced, but that's way into the future.

    Analyzing the moment...

    Point 1:
    Barca is not brilliant now (mostly in the last 40 days)...
    but the Liga is almost sure by now and there are two weeks to improve and to prepare the return against Chelsea.

    Point 2:
    in this CL so far Barca played four match away (Lisbon, Turin, Athens, London) and never been brilliant or did a great performance...but is also true that MATS took just one ball in own door.
    Then, probably in Europe Barca doesn't dominate away matches as in the past (or maybe we score less than the past), but with Valverde we much improved our defense attitude (remembering the matches of Paris and Turin last year this is a great result).
    Not easy for our opponents to create chance to score.

    When I said that I meant the general opinion of most users here because it was just one season and we won everything so it was tough to judge him. Forget trophies we played like shit and tacticless for a majority period under him and hence why he is regarded as an average coach. Stop repeating same BS. Its not just forum posters, no professional considers him great and thats why top teams aren't hiring him and rightfully so. You conveniently left my scolari WC example. Don't rope me in this dumb argument which is hapenning because you are extremely naive.
