Alot of the problems with Madrid are as a result of Perez so it would be a shame if Carlo got fired. There is a public perception that Carlo had to field a team based on Perez's instruction & not the team Carlo wanted to field. If that's true, Carlo never complained & towed the company line all campaign long.
He had to use the midfielders he had despite not having a legit box to box and/or defensive midfielder. Perez never brought in anyone to replace the production of Xabi & ADM.
If Carlo is guilty of anything it's not developing young players like Illarra & an inability to rotate his squad so that they were match fit. Trying to throw in the likes of Coentrao & Alvaro Arbeloa who didn't have much playing time previously got exposed when playing Atleti, Schalke, & last weekend vs Valencia.
Also alot of the mistakes I see in Bale are ones that should be able to be corrected during training. Good play is as a result of good practice & preparation. Is it because of Carlo's staff not properly preparing the likes of Bale (& Illarra, Chicha, etc)?
The last thing, it's hard to repeat as CL champions. The weight of expectation is so great mentally (as well as physically). The odds were really stacked on Madrid in repeating...
