Romaaa roma romaaaaaaaa )
From Valverde to Iniesta, the inability of our team to make any sort of adjustment or reaction to what was going on on the pitch last night is what I am still so upset about. Even after the first goal, Real immediately started playing better. Granted, Juve were the better team still, but they at least responded and showed fight and spirit. Even after the 2nd goal, we continued to sleepwalk on the pitch. No passion, no commitment, no urgency.
What is really confusing to me is that we showed all season in La Liga the ability to react to adversity and do what it takes to get back into a game. The game against Real Sociedad was a great example of just that sort of fighting spirit. It was baffling to see none of that yesterday in what was the biggest match of our season. Such an embarrassing send-off for Iniesta.
That Sevilla game should have been alarm bells for everyone as opposed to confidence due fighting spirit.
Sevilla was a disastrous game that we managed to scrap back in the end. Roma away was very similar but they were levels more difficult.
I wonder why he still has a job.
Me too. The longer it goes, the more likely it is for him to retain his job because the outrage will die down when we win the double (big chances). We'll crash next season on all fronts if we keep this person as our manager. Way too scared of his own shadow.
From what I've seen in the last years Barca doesn't learn. I think the last time Barca hired a WC player/tactician as coach was Cruyff and Van Gaal. Even Pep was a gamble but Cruyff's suggestion led to the decision. It's likely that he will stay if RM doesn't win CL.Me too.
