Hey man i was looking at the UCL future ties and i must admit they look like a snooze fest.
Barca vs dortmund the only spectecular one. They didnt meet as far as i know in the past. And klopp wouldnt park the bus so i say it would be exciting and pretty even.
Barca vs United We should be able to beat clueless moyes.
Barca vs chelsea Mou parkink the bus. Zzzzzz
Barca vs Real madrid Another clasico. Oh boy so boring
Barca vs bayern They demolish us like last time. maybe neymar or pedro score.
barca vs Atletico Another bus to get past. Boring as well
Barca vs PSG that one might even be exciting.
So what do you think? Who you look forward to? That is if we even get past city....
Also what do you think of Barca's youth; more specifically G. Deolefou, Sergi Robert, Martin Montoya and Dongou? I think they have potential to be world-class in their prime, and even though I've noticed some flaws I think with enough playing time they can mature and heck I personally think Deolefou can even become a Balon D'or contendor.
Non taken and I agree until Ancelotti does something about it, I don't think it is going to change anytime soon.
Messi in Argentina plays more of a support role, which he is actually doing that more often now with his club (Barcelona). I think that is the reason why ADM plays more comfortably and is effective with his partner Messi than with Ronaldo as Di Maria plays purely second fiddle to Ronaldo and has to try even harder to shine in some moments.
Di Maria is unfortunately just a player from 9 other guys (not including the Gk) to serve CR7 in the current Real Madrid system.
I do recall Madrid playing with the 4231 formation where Isco was the one excelling in that formation, but also RM conceded more goals and unfortunately for Isco he was the one that had to be benched to introduced the new system. I believe Isco can adapt, but it won't magically happen. Again going back to Messi who is indeed the more balanced player from the two (CR7) and therefore can play most attacking positions quite well. Take this for example if you take two people and give one a Rubik's cube (horrible analogy, but it must do) usually the one with the most gifted in intelligence, crafty and is innovative will outdo the bolder, straightforward, hands-on counter and this is where luck might come in and decide the outcome winner however, luck is not forever! So if Real's 433 formation is doing them better than their previous formations then use it unless it has worn out. Formations are used to see what is the best tactic to go against teams and for the squad, however the beauty of it is that it can also be used to suit individual star performers. In this case it is Ronaldo.
I totally agree that the 4231 formation are the youngster's best system, but again they are still young and will have enough time to gain more experience as they age and will become more versatile in the future. Also Iniesta is just a phenomenal talent, he is one of a kind and could magically pull things off. There will no be no other like him and he is just an absolute joy to watch. So unfortunate that he got injured, but I hope he comes back hungrier and better than ever even if it means making us pay >.Or contender.
And did you realize that sergi roberto was phenomenal this pre season until a couple of weeks ago where he started to play like xavi. I think the old gaffer is having a bad effect on him with his obsession with possession. I used to watch sergi a lot and his best attribute was his directness. Always looking for that killer ball. I bet xavi "thought" him the "right way"
What really bothers me is
watching other club buying players and selling like crazy. Yet barcelona are brain afk like always. Chelsea buying matic/selling mata. United buying,arsenal linked to draxler...At.madrid did some buys as well. I know barca looks at the academy at first which i love but still...
Zubi and the board is really incompetent. I feel barca is the second united in the making. Just wait 1-2 season and we are 6-7 in the table lol.
Lol. This current picture is Ayrton Senna. I changed the old Barca pic because it was from a last season wallpaper, and really, I don't want to remember much from last season. Let me see if I can find an original one for this season.
The new president just needs to do 2 things.
1. Fire eusebio. Rly there is no coach who wants to coch barca b? rly?
2. Buy a Cb. Or even loan one this january.
If he does these 2 things i send him love letters lol
Ps. you look scary in your profile man
Let me ask you why Spanish media is saying this then? I am not sure if the La liga BBVA states something about what happens if the president of the respected club is found stealing money.
ps. was this topic not one of the most shared in twitter and in all of the football communities?
A similar case but that is being compared to is the carlos teves case which is in its way different but is still being compared
I dont know if you understood the Media here is saying that that they could get docked points from the la liga BBVA officials and that they could get the UCL ban from UEFA
