This is just football, oh well. You lose on 2 set pieces and then get decimated by Madrid's counter attack with the 2 best athletes in world football when you press for goals. That's why it's so hard to win twice in a row, because every title has a lot of luck involved. I would certainly not say that this is a team good enough to win 2 in a row based on what I've seen the last month and what that says about how the team is run. I think fitness is an issue maybe even more than anything else. Pep only practices with the ball I think? Don't care for that.
Not sure about the direction of the club right now either. Hoping it doesn't go the way of van Gaal, but it definitely can. The club was the least motivated I've ever seen since securing the Bundesliga Title and I don't believe that possession beyond a certain point is beneficial.
