Only way Todibo would play at this age is if he was one of the great central defense talents of all time, and even then I doubt Ernie would have an eye to spot something like that. Something like a Maldini. Truth be told, he's not there and has flaws which are characteristic of his age, so if he is to play and start in a game like this, it would only by possible under a progressive bold manager. We all know Valverde is super-conservative (opposite of progressive) and as much of a football coward as it gets.

    I do agree though that if you are conservative and you hate risks, it is at least logical to not play Todibo at this point. So Valverde is conservative, and coward, but in this case he is at least logical and consistent with his beliefs.

    Sociedad confidence crumbling. They will sit back more. 2nd half for Barca to break through their defense.

    Valverde nows better what he is doing and why physical preparation isn't of importance for him...Anfield game stands as proof.

    Bad luck. First Pique's header for 1:3 cleared from thw line and then ball falls right on the leg of Isak for 2:2
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    I think we have quite good luck considering how many chances they have missed so far

    Absolute disasterclass. Compared to La Real we looked like old men out there. Extremely lucky to get a point.

    Why are our players not celebrating? If we have small team coach we should adopt small team mentality (we sure look like one). We took a big point away from home against much better opponent, if only we had 20 more world class players in every position.
