I had no idea... Funny thing about Wenger is we clearly need a DM badly but he will bid 35 million for another attacking midfielder

And that's where my criticism of today's performance will begin

 

This team is playing like garbage compared to the Real standard, and it's being masked by Navas. Yes, Celta are the second place team in la liga and can score goals, especially at home, but...they're Celta ****** Vigo. They went down to 10 men to what was arguably sketchy refereeing, and Real took they're foot off the pedal instead of pressing it on Celta's neck. And when they did that, they became uninterested and played lackadaisically. Maybe Rafa thought the players were a little gassed from their trip to Paris, but it was bad management. Because they easily could have lost. 

 

Next criticism, not for his overall performance...but as much constant praise and zero criticism he gets to his game, Varane is straight up bad with his distribution from the back. He constantly makes bad passes and gives it away. Dude is going to be world class and lock don defensively for a long time, but that doesn't mean he's gotta be nice with passing it as well. I think he needs to get more conservative in danger situations and just clear it.

 

Said this a month ago, when I believe they were on top of La Liga, and the exposure came out in full effect today. 

 

Barca put on an amazing performance. First goal was insane, all those passes, and then Sergi Roberto knew the instant moment to make the slashing run and gave a perfect pass to Suarez.

 

Barca had spells where they dominated possession, and whenever Real would win the ball back they'd have extremely cheap giveaways. There was also no intensity on defense to get the ball from Barca. 

 

Don Inesta put on one of the best individual performances I've seen in a while. The way he was manipulating the ball was beautiful. The turn he put on Kroos was crazy, then I don't even know how he picked out Neymar for the assist. Then that give and go was lethal for the third.

 

Only player who showed up for Real was Isco in his cameo. Came on as a sub and got the red. Gareth Fale actually looked decent today too, had a few nice set ups including that outside of the foot pass on a high speed counter to Ronaldo that could have been a goal.

 

A big moment for me was when Marcelo opted to shoot instead of square it for Benz in the beginning of the second half. Could have been 2-1, with Real coming out of the gates hot, but instead a few minutes later Barca went up 3-0.

 

I'm not really sure if I can fully put this one on Rafa. If he selected a side based on putting the right pieces together with players like Casemiro in and James on the bench, and they still caught the wedgie he would have been criticized. He put his most purely talented side out there, and they just got destroyed. Also, another thing is that I don't remember the last time seeing this XI play together. In a lot of the recent matches, Casemiro, Jese, and Vasquez have been getting the start. But obviously you can't start the latter 2 in El Clasico, especially when Rafa has been getting criticized for his lack of attacking selections. 

 

I'm obviously not happy about the L, but I can appreciate an amazing display of football when I see one, and that's what Barca put on today.

So, given this performance, Messi can come to Arsenal and Barca can still wash Real 4-0

Wenger needs to buy some players. No ifs, and, or buts about it at this point.

We need a physical presence. And we need to pay for quality.




Either that, or seriously.... We need to pay Messi $600k a week. **** it at this point. Cause we're dreaming either way if we don't bring in someone...

So now that it seems Benetiz is going to get sacked, I wonder if the players quit on him yesterday knowing an embarrassing performance against Barca would probably be the end for Rafa.

I wouldn't come back even if Florentino was begging on his knees if I was Carlo after the way he was sacked unceremoniously mean.gif. The rumors of Zidane taking over have me intrigued though...

The dream might be over for @HEGGSYFC after their current run of fixtures...



They'll be worthy title contenders if they can get through that stretch relatively well.

Indeed, the best bet is to hope to find a low key diamond in the rough in Jan. Someone sorta unknown who can burst into the team similar to a Martial situation.

Lord knows you're not going to pry away a key CDM figure in Jan from a top squad, unless he pulls a William Gallas laugh.gifmean.gif and not sure if that's the kind of player a team would want anyway.
post #14362 of 50776
You can still find quality in January every now and then like Mata but yea for the most part your overpaying for no more than solid players.

I like LVG using the academy and all but one thing that's exposing is the serious lack of depth on the squad. I'm sure he'll be looking into a few signings. He's admitted that he's on the lookout for a LB and forward.

I'll leave this here laugh.gif

Come on Roh, give us some credit laugh.gif we're top for a reason, I don't see why we can't get a relatively decent amount of points from that.

City, Utd, Chelsea all at home. Swansea have been poor. Everton can be hit and miss.

Plus that tweet Misses out the fact we have Bournemouth at home before Spurs away.

I know Arsenal played us off the park, but, they can play anyone off the park on their day, yourselves included.

That said, we're not winning the title are we. Or getting top 4, so I'd be happy with enough points to keep us in the hunt for Europa. And tbh after last season I can't believe I'm even saying that roll.gif
post #14365 of 50776
There are so many other teams I would like to see finish top 4...Spurs, Leicester, Everton it would be dope if two of them could get in but there's a good chance by the end of the season there will only be one spot to fight for and my money so to speak is on Spurs.

Was wawatching some Drogba videos on YouTube, came across "its a disgrace" match, I'm kinda speechless. If I was Chelsea fan I can't even imagine I how sick I would be. I wonder what would be the fallout if something like that happened now.
