Another 1-0 win. Lol. It just feels like the whole league is a complete bore fest this year. Hardly entertaining games. Prem on the other hand is way more exciting at both ends of the table and i am no means a Prem fanboy.

Easy 4-0. Osasuna will focus on Saturday, no player of them will risk an injury and we play before our home crowd, Xavi has the whole squad available and want to be champions as soon as possible. Also Lewy need some goals because Benzema scored 3 last time.

For the first time in a long time, we have a respectable bench, still two goal keepers on the bench, but massive improvement.

Raphinha + Dembele on the right wing is something we should aspire on every position and what the best 3-4 clubs usually have as options.

Just saw City bench in a key game for them vs Fulham. Fecking Bernardo, Foden. :lol: Unreal.

The only club that is somewhat light (not compared to us, but with City) squad-wise is Madrid (of the elite ones), and their saving grace is the fact that their best 11 is CL winner material. And they were lucky enough not to have players like Vinicius, Courtois, Benzema fit in the most important games.

Best thing is to bag the league mathematically asap, and for Laporta, Alemany, and Xavi to start preparing next season. The squad needs many upgrades, for us to be able to fight in all 3 fronts until the end even if multiple injuries occur.

The squad is not any worse than Reals.

League has shown that even with the injuries.

City are only squad in Europe that have managed to fight on multiple front for trophies.

Can still be improved though and not top team even City are without some flaws currently.

The squad is worse than Real's easily, because their first 11 is CL winnning material. Can't explain it in simpler terms for you to finally understant this. Their first 11 are CL holders, our best 11 is nothwere near.

Madrid also lack depth compared to likes of City for instance, but their main 13-14 players are simply much superior. World class those players are, ours not even close. :lol: Maybe close some day... as in maybe we will reach some day what these 13-14 players of Madrid already achieved (some 3-4 times over).

The only players superior to likes of Benzema, Modric, Courtois etc., are the long gone players of Pep's Barca. Xavi retired, Iniesta as good as retired, Alves, retired, all are retired, and these youngsters are what we are looking forward to.

The current Madrid players had their peaks quite some years ago, but back then they had MSN Barca, or even worse, Pep's Barca to deal with (in the case of Benzema). Now those teams are long gone and now these oldies are shaming the EPL pretenders.

Nah it isnt at all and their starting players are not superior either.

See Barca v Real games and peformances in league overall.

Real not been able to compete in league.

To say their 'main 13-14 is much superior' is absolute nonsense. Watch them play against one another.
