We lack genuine leadership. We lack physicality. We lack a plan B. We lack pace in vital areas. We lack a kitchen sink to throw at teams when we need to get back into a game. We lack those big balls Stones used to have. We lack accountability when it goes wrong. We need a statement signing to shake things up, I dont mean a young player with potential I mean someone who is already the business.
Which leaders would you recommend buying?

Team is partly to blame with a makeshift defence plus Laporte being our major problem and not having the right mentality (which seemed odd when we beaten Real over both legs)
Sounds exactly like the excuses we've made over the last few years. For some reason pep seems to get scared and change the way we play in the knockout stages. This usually ends badly.

We still haven't bought well but all our defeats have an element of controversy thrown into the mix. All 3managers have struggled at somepoint in the CL (although Pellegrini has got us to the semi beating PSG en route)

Pep drilled it into them all week that they needed to be afraid today ,then backs it up with the team selection,one minute you are the best attacking side in the world so press and be aggressive and confident,you can't mess with their heads like that

This is true but all the signings that haven't worked out are pep signings. We've spent so much money on the defence yet its still a shambles. We can't win the Champions League without having at least a competent defence.

He has messed it up too many times, its almost like the dodgy decisions that have gone against us have been glossed over for the simple catastrophes made in team selections. Very disappointed to be honest.

True but we didn't deal paricularly well with both first and second goals. Pep can't completely legislate for that.

Yeah and then Real Madrid were there for the taking but that's another story for another thread:(
