Dominant threatening possession. Structure. Palace barely had a look on goal.

Hope Ralf has some ideas on how to break teams down because we still look a bit clueless there.

the team knows how bad it is. i'm sure there's some ugliness in the locker room too and dembele's contract issue isn't helping.

the RM state press calling it VergUEFA (basically a pun on shame+UEFA), I guess Benfica was much more to their liking.
I had texted a buddy after the initial draw that I wasn't looking forward to two months of Ronaldo v Messi stories, but I think that would have been a cinch compared to the Mbappe in Madrid madness. And obvs wouldn't have minded United as an opponent lol

Same with Atleti. We got time to get right for these matches and if we don’t then Ralf might not be the guy.

Also I figured Uncle Flo would looooove to play a big star team. Isn’t that why he wanted the ESL

Professional win. Jacob Ramsey with a damn banger to open, and Carney Chukwuemeka making a chance out of nothing for Watkins to tap home. Never a note of trouble from Norwich. Sorry Deano.

sad to see him go out like this, he deserved to retire on the pitch, not because of a scary heart issue but glad he's healthy.

(extra frustrating because he is exactly what barca needs right now)

but with covid, there's also a plausible chance we're seeing long-term impacts of the combination of a novel disease + athletic competition and something about soccer may be particularly risky (the stop/start of the running, perhaps?)

In response to Reply # 0


          

No Lukaku, Jorginho, Werner, Havertz, Odoi

They are all in Covid protocol. We had no striker to
field.

Our defense and IQ got us the draw, but we were unable
to score goals.

Injuries and Covid are doing a number on us.

In less than 2 weeks, we go from being up on City to being down
by 6 points. I have no idea as to who the fock will be available for
the next match.

It does happen sometimes.

but i'll take it. got a pretty impressive youth movement going with him now as well. pretty confident the under 23 barca players would absolutely crush the older team:

inaki pena/arnau coma
dest-garcia-araujo-minqueza (might get moved)
pedri-gavi-nico
ansu-ferran-ez

bench: puig,

vs.

MatS
alba-pique-lenglet-roberto
fdj-busi-alves/coutinho
memphis-braithwaite-dembele

new year, new weird loopholes in FFP?

i think the issue for barca was always their salary cap and not having money for purchases (and iirc, they took out a loan late summer that should help with that too and torres' first payment isn't till summer 2022). Kun's salary is officially off the books with his retirement, so that opened up space. Demir's almost definitely gone (hasn't been practicing) and they'll either sell Umtiti for peanuts or rescind his contract to open salary space, i'd guess. as well as loan out Luuk and a few others

and now it looks quite likely that it'll cost barca dembele whose agent apparently walked out of the meeting today about a renewal...

to lose dembele on a free because of the salary cap. jfc.

In response to Reply # 43


  

          

Dude has had more than enough chances with us. In 4 and a half years he's given us 18 goals. Injured long term every year. And each time he comes back, he's a good as he ever was... but no better. After 4 and a half years he is still making horrible decisions with the ball. Dangerous, absolutely. But I'm more than okay taking Ferran and losing Dembele.

Shitty that we can't get some of that stupid amount we spent on him back though.

Odoi blew a huge goal scoring opportunity.

Liverfool lost today, too. We could have went 3 points up.

We are behind City by 8 points now. Not cool. We can beat them, no problem,
but other teams can’t beat them, so we can’t get too far behind.

Buck, which team of yours played today? I’m curious.

answer: Cannot predict now

such an unpredictable team from minute to minute, half to half. sometimes they try. sometimes they dont. sometimes they play like a team. sometimes a couple folks *cough* rashford *cough* decide they'd rather work on their youtube mixtape

honestly think we need to just start from scratch and play w/ more Sancho/VDB and less Bruno/Rashford. we need some a few more team oriented folks out there.

Just unbelievable, new year, same BS. We were clearly the better team before the send off. Should have had a clear penalty in the first half.

Can't believe we're have moved past Granit still


This team is actually good. Like legit becoming good now. Just need to cut out the dumb shit - not sure we will this year though

I mean even diminished he'd be an upgrade on most of the CAM/wingers we're playing now. But can he stay fit? Is being mates with Stevie enough to motivate him? Will we blow up our wage structure to buy him in the summer? Would trying this in the summer have been enough to keep Grealish?

and a reasonable low buy option IF coutinho regains his confidence/quality (I doubt it)

Barca need wages off their wage bill bad. AV is paying 65% of his wages, so with one more small move (likely yusuf demir), Barca can register Ferran Torres once Couts can travel and officially sign (he's currently covid+).

73. "If this works right, it's our Robinho signing"
In response to Reply # 72


  

          

Edens and Sawiris aren't country rich, but they're quite rich. Coutinho as a talisman for the "type" of player Villa can attract could have huge knock-on effects. Word is now that we're looking at bringing in Bissouma - a player that might have seen a move to Villa as lateral before Coutinho came in. And yeah, we're sitting dead center of the table, but there's not a WHOLE lot of ground between 11th and the European places- if Coutinho can come CLOSE to his best form we could be in business. Coutinho slotting in as a twin ten allows us to keep depth in the midfield, as now Jacob Ramsey or Morgan Sanson won't be taking up one of those slots behind the striker (and yes, we still have to figure out where Bailey and Ings fit in, although the answer will probably be "as supersubs").

Plus, training with a world class player like Coutinho is going to improve the rest of the squad. Iron sharpening iron and all that.

I'd say we have a chance.

78. "Asking specific questions about how a player fits into a squad..."
In response to Reply # 75


  

          

...isn't a diss. It's information gathering. And now I have a better idea of what Villa are trying to accomplish, thanks to Magilla's thorough explanation.

And because I kinda like Villa, I hope it works out. They've been through some tough times recently, but who wouldn't like to see them make their way up to and around the European places?

Now, contrast that with...I don't know...Chelsea, who are one of those clubs that are so rich that they just buy whoever they want without regard to wage bill or whether a player is exactly right for the future of the squad. They can just throw money around, bring in whoever, and if he doesn't work out? So what? Plenty of room for expensive mistakes. Just loan him out and try again. Football Manager on easy mode. A child could run a club like that.

Think he’ll work a little better than Targett in Gerrard’s system. Just need a defensive midfielder to make up for Nakamba’s absence and we’re ready to move up to European places.

80. "Umtiti extends with some funky clauses and Ferran is registered"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

competent management gets shit done.

Umtiti extended a year but total salary is the same, so it lowered wages for a year and he's got an option for a free transfer this summer, supposedly, so he can go where he wants easily and on wages more aligned with his form than his old wages (rumored to be highest paid per year after others resigned at lower wages).

still have a few more January moves (Dembele fiasco resolution, Araujo and Gavi and a few others need extensions), but at least the management of the team isn't trash and I can trust they'll do the right things.

82. "we might just need to go arsenal reset w/ it up front next season"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

rashford is on my list of folks that need to go he is finished. no explosion anymore and he was never any good at making decisions out there. that's magnified x10 now.

bruno might need to go too if we cant go back to being a team player. they both give the ball away an absolutely embarrassing and severely detrimental amount.

build around elanga - greenwood - sancho or something. idk this is a mess. you can see why Fred and Scott play so much. if nothing else they actually give a fuck and can move. keep VDB. get another young forward, 2 more CMs. promote some young players. its a faulty foundation we need to tear some shit up.
