    What do you mean "lucky"? I remember is losing when we were a better team not that recently.

    Still needs to make subs more quickly sometimes. We simply don't have the legs to play the full 90 mins with 11 players. Which makes subs extra important.

    But he's a lot better than Valverde in this regard.
    Zehahahahahahahaha

    Yea, but here comes the problems of the shorter squad. Very few options on the bench.

    1. Old players
    2. Players who were never natural runners but more about technique
    3. A small squad
    4. Playing in 3 tournaments
    5. Players like Messi and Busi playing all the time

    Let's see whether the players will improve or they will be dead by mid March.
    FU Barto, FU the whole board, FU Abidal, FU Neymar. The end of Barca

    Some of Valverde cultists must be mentally disturbed. Our typical Valverde match against someone like current Getafe would involve not being able to get out of our own half the whole game forcing Ter Stegen to hurl long ball over to midgets Greizman and Messi the whole time, but somehow that's better football than Kike 'the bum' Setien's lmao. It's really not the fault of the later that old farts like Pique, Alba, Busquets aren't world class anymore and make unforced errors after unforced errors, Umtiti has been killed by injury and too slow, likes of Roberto and Lenglet just mediocre overall Suarez and Dembele out and Messi out of form (even he made a lot of simple mistakes that lead to counters). Systemically his game is sound, we had no problem bypassing the press, creating/finding space for midfield movement, were getting into their final third effortlessly and creating plenty of danger even without direct involvement of Messi . Most of the bad shit was due to too much individual mistakes and seemingly shit fitness/complacency in the second half, not finishing off 100% chances. But ho, i have to believe that being pressed to death by any half decent liga team, while playing static positional football that leads to nothing and only being bailed out by Messi and Suarez golazos was better than current state. Kill yourself.

    A trophy-less season is not a tragedy if we learn from it and plan better for next season in the summer. Sort of like Madrid did last year.

    We can plan better for next season by:

    - actually training hard in preseason
    - signing players we actually need and ditch the idiotic galactico policy
    - cut the players that can no longer help us and/or are too old to be integrated in the new cycle
    - recall the loaned players who can help us even as squad options

    I agree that we need faster and stronger players btw. Especially in attack.

    We were supposed to find some momentum against the likes of Getafe,Granada,Betis etc to prepare against the tough and decisive games against Real and Napoli and the sad truth is that this did not happen.We struggled a lot in almost every match + we actually went out in the CDR(although this could have been a blessing in disguise).

    I am not saying this is Setien's fault.He is probably better than EV(certainly better than 3rd season EV),but he has an injured,old and unmotivated squad to deal with.I am sure if we still had Suarez and an in-form Messi we would probably win most games more convincingly,which would obviously just hide the real problems of the team.

    This is probably not our year,everything is going shit like in 2014 or 2017(I cannot speak about 2008 as I was quite young back then).We'll probably qualify to the UCL QF IMO,but sooner or later we'll get eliminated by a better team.As for La Liga,we are the underdogs right now,but there's still hope.We need to get a good result in Sandiago Bernabeu though(at least a convincing draw).

    The most important thing though is to make the right and bold decisions in the summer.Many dead weight like Rakitic or Roberto/Vidal need to go,while replacements need to be found for our old players like Pique,Busi and Alba,as long as they can accept a back-up role.

    In other words,we need AT LEAST 1 CB,1 LB,1 CM and obviously AT LEAST 2 high-quality attackers,whether they are wingers or true 9s.

    Unfortunately,it doesn't help that our board is not only clueless but also desperate to save their asses and that our finances are reportedly not very good.

    It's also really unfortunate that Messi is not getting any younger.I still believe that he can easily get 30G/20A at his 33,34 but he can no longer consistently produce moments of magic.

    In other words,we are kinda doomed...until the elections at least.

    Bring in Klopp, Pep, Allegri, Sarri or whoever and they wouldn't be able to do much with this current outfit. It is what it is...
