It's actually 3.0, dhunt Wink

On some posts from the previous thread:

- I think Xavi had to come in, Barcelona lost the midfield by minute 75. They were having trouble with Aleti high pressure, couldn't leave their side of the pitch and were overusing long balls (Messi had to come back for the ball, Alexis and Neymar had barely touched in that section of the game). What's the point on adding another forward when the ball won't reach them.

- It was an awful FK because the barrier was three steps ahead, it's time to copy the argentinian football and use the spray. Glad it's going to be used at the WC.

Fantastic season, couldn't have hoped for a better ending. Happy for Aleti and for the end of the monotone league Madrid and Barca offered the last 6 seasons.

Still, both champions in european competitions will be spanish. (IIRC) No spanish team in european competitions was eliminated by a team from another country from 1/16 onwards. (Actually just checked it - there were 17 matches that offered direct elimination between a spanish team and another from another country in Europe. The spanish team always went through).

Spanish dominance this year.

Right you are haha.

Really pulling for Atletico to do the double next weekend. They deserve it, hopefully Costa and Turan will be fit

To add onto the Spanish dominance, after next Saturday, Spain will be the reigning World Cup, Euros, Europa League, and Champions League champions.

Apparently Barca fans applauded Atletico players after. Very classy.

They did.

It was a really nice thing for them to do - recognising the hard work that Atletico put in this year.

Easy scapegoat. Don't really think it's his fault.

Was signed from an emergency, didn't coach the preseason, didn't have the chance to build the team, was criticized when he tried to change a bit Barcelona's style, had to work with the president stepping down with all the Neymar polemics and had to work with no CBs at times and with some top players in a low level.

He never had the balls to sit Xavi, Pique, Messi (well that's a tough one), Cesc, etc.. when they were on a poor level or continue to implement his game when they were atop the league even with the constant critics. That's on him.

Guess Luis Enrique is signing during the course of next week.

Lol Luis Enrique. Martino the scapegoat for Barcelona players having way too much power.

It was a mess of a season all around.

I'm not sure how Enrique will do. From everything I read, he has the player's respect and if the rumors are true about Puyol being his assistant manager, we'll definitely be focused because Puyol won't accept anything else.

Hasn't Enrique been pretty poor at the other clubs he's managed? I don't know too much about him, but that's what I've seen.

Pretty poor at Roma, he's been better at Celta.

He took a club that escaped relegation on the final day to 9th in one season and had Celts playing attacking football. And he brought Bar a B up to Segunda, finishing in the promotion spots. Only failed at Roma.
