    Pep played the best football ever with those players. All Real Madrid does is cross and hope. Zidane is doing the same thing like Ancelotti, who started this at Madrid, and Benitez. It's the same style with small differences like:

    Ancelotti had Alonso as DM with Modric and Di Maria CMs. Won UCL. Then Kroos DM with Modric and James (I said at the start of the season that this would never work and I was right). Trophyless. Kroos finished that season the second most dribbled player in both La Liga and UCL.

    Benitez started with a 4-2-3-1 Modric Kroos double pivot and Bale as a 10. Then moved back to Kroos DM and Modric James CMs. We trashed them at Bernabeu and moved up to 12 points in La Liga.

    Then came Zidane. He only changed 1 thing: Casemiro in the starting XI and he would rest the players more.


    Real Madrid have won this season 17 points in the last 10 minutes in La Liga. This was all luck (especially in some games) and because they were fit enough to keep the pressure and play so intense every game in the last minutes. It's easy to do this when 2/4 games per month their starting XI is Kovacic James Isco; Asensio Morata Lucas.

    If it was more than that, they would do it every single season. But it was the first Liga they won since 2011/2012. 5 years.

    Perhaps Barcelona should have focused on depth and player development instead of spending so much money on Neymar and Suarez? You spend so much money on redundant players, but you let your youth players who are good enough to play for Barcelona leave for nothing. La Masia is still producing top pros, but you don't give them any chance, instead you go after just as good players from abroad. How come Grimaldo didn't get a chance? Sandro Ramirez? You could say Thiago never really got a full shot either. You should sell one of MSN this summer.

    You became obsessed with BEING Real Madrid and trying to do what they do, but you are never going to beat them by doing exactly what they do because they have more money. You can win with less good players who you develop yourself. Barcelona is still the best talent production line in the world, yet with your obsession with galacticos lately you don't trust any of them.

    This is what Barça has always been. Cruyff, Laporta and Pep were just accidents.

    Barca has never been a top club except under those people.

    His wife is expecting a child this week apparently. Very sad news. Was a good solid player.

    Sky is the limit for Dani Ceballos. What a player. Meanwhile Barça getting linked with fucking Paulinho for 40M and that Lucas Lima guy.

    I hope you buy Paulinho so players think there is a way back from China and we can sell them more players for more money

    when I heard you were linked with him I assumed it was for free and still thought it was a bad deal.

    Verratti + Ceballos is the real deal.

    Ceballos is so obvious and so cheap Barça won't do it. Better overpay a Brazilian mediocre shit or an Arsenal cunt.
