    What were the reasons behind Rome and Anfield in your opinion?

    Poor approach from Barca v Roma and players were shite and dropped their level.

    Anfield nowhere near as bad an approach from EV but players made too many mistakes in what was much more even game based on balance of play than scoreline.

    None of that is relevant to point about EV though and his options of how to coach the team.

    Some Barca fans are deluded and have think they have some pureist idea not based on reality of crossing ball a lot as some kind of weakness. In reality it is a key part of breaking teams down and having the threat of it also to stretch teams.

    Despite LDJ being utter garbage today Barca were much better going forward when putting ball into box early and getting men in and around area in first half. It was more enjoyable to watch than that second half dirge when Depay, Coutinho and Ansu tried to pass ball and fucked up more often than not.
    Sadly this is very true, we were actually worse in 2nd half after Luuk was substituted out, although it was partially because we neglected the whole right side when we made Dest RB again

    The only option EV had to prove he isn't yes man was to resign, and that would have been a career suicidal that we can't expect the man to take. People would say he quit on the team

    Vs Roma it is poor preparation from EV. Everyone thought the tie is over. When Roma scored their second goal, EV and players were all panic.

    Vs Liverpool it is more about team's mentality. This time the team had several chances to finish Liverpool but failed every time. If you go by Birdy's logic, it is Barca with 3.9 xG to Liverpool 3.8 xG.

    "Retardo"
    "The worst coach in the history of Barca"
    "I want my Barca back"
    "We will fly when he leaves"
    "I will open a bottle of champagne the day he leaves"

    I said a few years ago that one day in the future we will look with sadness onto EV's days compared to what is waiting for us.

    People thought that it was trolling.

    I feel the same way brother.

    Crazy how only Valverde got that treatment. Don't see any Retardo style threads for koeman or setien

    Yes, but don't forget, he didn't play football the "proper way"(aka million short passes and combinations in the midfield), therefore the results are irrelevant.
