We'll lose v Porto, end up 2nd in CL group (if we don't crash out somehow) and then be mauled by City or Bayern in R of 16.

He's starting to get on my nerves again with how negative he is in his press conferences and general communication.

If Barca finish first in their group and have some luck with the draw, they are already in the CL QF.


From there, with some luck anything can happen.


I think at this point, it's clear that Xavi is a result based manager and not a style of play, philosophy based coach.

Result based against fodder LaLiga teams.

We dont get results against big teams really.

Same shit as always. We aren't getting anything vs Porto and Atleti

Actually, Atletico is just the team you want to face, to give you a confidence boost, Simeone, despite being a good coach, simply can't get a result vs Barca to save his life, never could, in the league anyway.

Arteta in a round about way said that they would have won the Premier League last year if he was more like Xavi.

Even if Barca get a result against Porto, the reality of the current squad is that they're just one of the sides to make up the numbers in the last 16.
They'd actually be a draw that most of the clubs left in the competition would like.

Way we are playing there is a real chance for Porto to beat us on Tuesday.

If we lose vs. Porto and Shakhtar presumably beat Antwerp we'll be going into the last matchday with a chance we end up getting eliminated in the group stages again :lol:

Unlikely because you'd expect even this shit version of the team beat Antwerp at home, but the fact that it could come down to that.....disgusting to think about.

One of the easiest groups you could get too.

He's well and truly just like his favorite manager and idol, Louis van Gaal.
Louis Van Gaal built the great Ajax of the 90s playing football from the future
And his first Barca stint was solid

Insulting to even make the comparison/analogy

Don't think even this shitty Xavi team can lose to Antwerp

But Porto is coming hungry for revenge this week. Expect a loss there
