Isn't this a bit of a overreaction to bad 2nd half of a game?
Last year people said we would destroy Barca and win La Liga by a mile after beating them easily in Supercopa. Overreaction is the norm.
That's 1 thing I've learned from NHL pre seasons, haven't followed the talk as much in previous years in football.
Modric didn't play a full game last night, they made 4 changes on the 2nd half-, haven't still seen Courtois and lost on defensive collapses.
It's pointless to laugh at the Ronaldo trade as the reason for last nights loss, he wouldn't have fixed those defensive mistakes they made, they were pretty big ones when they made them. This game neither showed they should be ranked 4th or 5th for La Liga next season.
If anything they showed if they can put it together they can be a strong team and maybe better team in La Liga than last year. They can compete with Atletico.
But I feel if Isco& Benzema are getting regular minutes in big games that's where the issue is.
Well that doesn't seem to be the case. Otherwise, Perez wouldn't be mad at Vasiliyev, would he?
Lemar was very good. To play that way in a complicated system as Atletico's is not common at all. The guy is going to be a force
He seemed to get better when Griez came off
Yeah I agree
I also thought Partey was really good, in the past I never really rated him very highly but Simeone has done an amazing job developing him
Lemar off the ball was superb all game long. With the ball he got better as game went on, I agree.
i didn't even know this La Liga board existed here! awesome. looking forward to a great season for FCB. Was a great opener to start. looking forward to posting with you guys in here.
