Roberto should not be getting midfield playing time in front of Vidal, not because he is terrible, but because you must use a talent like Vidal. Vidal has to start against either Sevilla or Inter Milan.
    I'm a Vidal fan but I think I'm the only one on this forum. Considering the state of our midfield you'd think he'd be an automatic starter but Retardo has other ideas. Even Pep started Vidal and Bayern were pretty stacked in midfield.

    I'm calling 2-1 Sevilla. This manager has no real game plan and will be exposed.

    If he loses this one I think he could be finished or at least it should be very close. Valverde out.

    I hope so. Sevilla are confident and in good form. There will be alot of pressure on him if we lose. A draw is the worst outcome.

    I agree, Vidal is an exceptional player when on form.

    Its a shame he hasn't been given more games to show his strengths, given the shit show from some players.
    “If you can go and play at a full Celtic Park on Champions League night then you can play anywhere. The fans create a crazy atmosphere like nothing I have ever heard. “I do hope in the future we can draw Celtic again because even though we lost it is one of the best stadiums to play football in the world". Andres Iniesta

    As journalist Santi Ovalle wrote: "Messi's performance will not go down in history but no other player is capable of a performance like that. He has normalised genius."

    He won't get sacked.

    So Pique traveled more than internationals and he didn't even play. Just to know where his focus is.

    My starting 11 vs Sevilla

    MATS---Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba---Busi, Rakitic, Vidal---Dembele, Suarez, Messi

    I feel that Coutinho and Arthur would need a rest after a trip from Saudi Arabia and both of them have been playing a lot recently. Play both of them vs Inter and Real.
    Rakitic didn't play vs Jordan for Croatia so he had a 1 week rest. Busi only played 60 minutes so he should be fine.

    Guess it's confirmed Coutinho is starting at LW with Malcom in the stands.

    I know this is pointless.
    Anyway, some things I'd like to see for the Sevilla and Inter games:

    - Roberto/Semedo starting one game each.
    - Busquets starting only one game.
    - Coutinho starting only one game.
    - Dembélé starting a game.
    - Vidal starting against Sevilla.
    - Subbing off Suárez and Alba given the chance
    - Playing Busquets or Chumi at least 30 min as a centre back


    Tbf a lot of our players are rested, and the ones that aren't have good coverage.
    It's up to Valverde to combine the best ones for each game.
