The more I see this thread the more I regret not voting terrible instead of dissapointing.
3 games in and the Australian Laporta is the new messiah
Guarantee that at the end of the season he won't be in top 4.
If you understood even a little bit the sport you are supposedly a fan of, you would know that it's a nearly impossible mission to have this team qualify for CL given the competition he faces
of course, "if you understood"....
Disappointing, but honestly, he's had a sub-par team up until a few weeks ago. It's amazing he was able to win La Liga with the pedestrian squad he was handed and with Barca financial resources in the tank. Best defensive record might be boring as hell but it won; you can't argue that.
I'm hoping we'll finally start to see some attractive football now that we have a few more dynamic/creative squad members. Ultimately, that's going to require getting FdJ to stop dwelling on the ball and get it to creative players more quickly; if he can't learn to do that, he'll need to be benched and used like Pep used Keita, to hold leads and kill off games.
