    Yep. Career only really took off when he was 33/34 as well.
     
  2. I think it's actually quite sad to see.

    I thought of a Liverpool comparison (as in bog standard football with a few talented players) whilst watching them, but Liverpool are much more lively.

    I don't see any particular Pep legacy now. If you look at this team & then, for example the pre Pep team with Ronaldinho in it, I don't see this team doing anything special compared to that team (which was better) before Pep revolutionised everything. Messi will paper over that but once he goes, if they continue down this path I don't think it would look that much different if Pep had never been there.

    I hope that doesn't happen to us over time.

    Its the managers they picked since pep left you pick managers with nouse to play the pep way.
     
  4. Ajax are more Barca than Barca.

    But I suppose Barca were based on Ajax anyhow so it's kind of apt.

    Barca also have piss poor management (board) and have made some terrible signings. They are obsessed with galacticos these days and signing more workhorse players. This is the biggest reason they have declined year by year.

    Is there a team with more City connections in La Liga than Seville this season? Navas, Nolito, Fernando, and now Rony Lopes.

    Oh my days.

    Absolutely insane skill from Joao Felix, skins 3 players inside out, running half the pitch and wins a pen for Atletico.


    ...And Morata misses the pen.

    You could sense he was waiting for the defender to lunge in with that tackle; it was almost as if he deliberately had to slow down in the box to give the defender time to chop him down.
