The fear of Napoli coming to town end up doing nothing.
Yeah. All those anti Ole know all’s on here who have been lauding Napoli for so long, and used them as a stick to bash OGS work.

well we are all watching your Napoli and they are rubbish

Hilarious, some people who have been screaming at United to sign Koulibaly are clearly actually watching him for the first time tonight.

Napoli finished 7th in a poor Serie A. Surely not?

Koulibally is fecking terrible
As mentioned before, almost as bad a Varane last night gifting City an easy victory. Guardiola seems super confident City will win the CL, I wonder why. Bet they will put in a low bid for Koulibaly based on tonights shocker with Stones in p/x.

This has been a great game marred by awful officiating. Hopefully Messi is okay, great first half. If Napoli score twice more, they are through

I'm really starting to think the hype for him was just due to the price tag Napoli put on him 2-3 years back. Based on about 10 games I've seen of him last two seasons, he's been nothing but bang average.

Only just tuned in to the Barca game and have noticed its Cnut Cakes as the ref. Awful ref, still seething over his laughable decision to send Nani off all those years ago.

I think it is very clear that the top 5 in Europe (City, Pool, RM, Barca, Bayern) has formed a gap to the rest.

PSG is probably the best of the rest but very little to differentiate the rest imo (Juventus, Atletico, United, Chelsea, BvB are all very similar level teams and form is the main differentiator).
I don't think Real or Barca are in that category. City comfortably beat Real Madrid in both legs and I think Bayern will easily beat Barca in the next round. I'd fancy PSG and maybe a few other teams over them too.

This Barca-Napoli game has been crazy.

Both teams have more goals in them as well, wouldn't be shocked to see a 5-3 or 4-4 type of scoreline here.

On second look the ref had to give the Koulibaly pen, unlucky and unintentional but still a foul in the box

First time I recall watching Koulibaly and this match he has me reminiscing of Silvestre in the center - a worry every touch and waiting for an inevitable calamity.

But I trust my fellow Caftards that he is much better than tonight's first half performance.
