    Very true, and Barca fans in general actually.
    I remember seeing an Egyptian Barca blogger, who thought 7 of this squad would be easily Barca starter

    Surely end of the road for Deschamps. Done all he could with that team, even gone back on that Benzema thing and team going nowhere with him. Took a chokejob for them to get angry and start playing with character. Zidane is a good fit for this side.

    Even though they won the world cup, I still think this current generation is underachieving given just how much talent they have compared to other nations.

    Imagine the Algerian shaitan wins a WC with this French side in Qatar. That trophy cabinet would surely be the best ever, if it already isn't.

    Your name has to be written on the cup. Then whatever happens against you, be it deflected shots, keeper errors , own goals, referee decisions or even penalties, somehow, miraculously you get through. France name was not written on the cup this year.

    You will see Gregory Dupont discussed in the coming days - the levels of fitness & febrility of the squad with small injuries were unacceptable & majorly contributing. The fitness coach, who left for Real Madrid, masterminded that side of things for France in 2018.


    Is this the same guy who was "responsible" for RM having million injuries this season?

    During the game vs Switzerland, ugly scenes for France (EDS):

    - Rabiot & Pogba insulted each other - Rabiot unhappy with Pogba's defensive efforts
    - Varane insulted Pavard, unhappy with his defending
    - Pavard blamed Pogba, for doing no defending, Varane later backed Pavard up

    Team of divas who got too full of themselves for winning one of the easiest WCs in recent history in 2018.

    And to top it off: Rabiot's psycho mom went off at Pogba and Mbappe's family.

    I mean.....Pogba was probably not tracking back as much as he did, but I did see him winning the ball back in the midfield so he was at least pressing and trying to win the ball back.

    Perhaps he didn't track back as much as he should've, but he's the only player along with Benzema and arguably Griezmann who had either a good/great or decent game.

    The wonders of lip reading agents and social media. Imagine we had that in the yore?

    Coman hit the bar. Their name was not on the cup. Luck was not with them.
