What's going on with Barca, 2 reds for Dembele and Araujo and also Pique booked?!

Dembele is absolutely brainless. Back in form, gets into the team and now he gets sent off. It also means we'll be back to watching Griezmann be rubbish at the left away to Eibar.

That entire sequence of play resulting in 2 red cards came from yet another idiotic moment from Pique. His mistake let Chichraito through and the ensuing chaos.

Pique, Umtiti and potentially Todibo out for Eibar away. Lenglet could be the only senior CB for that match.

+ that attack minute or two before that, when he refused to pass for ages and just lost the ball in the end. he's better fit for them than Griez, but man, he's such a brainless player. Rashford is limited, but Dembele is just stupid. no other words for him.

Where fans' expectations are too high
They took issue with Ter Stegen voicing his frustration at not being given a chance in the German NT. In retaliation, Munich said at one point something to the effect they'd withdraw their players from the NT if Neuer was benched. Looking into it now, it seems they've backtracked from that position so it's ridiculous how they behaved.
Yeah I didn’t know that’s what happened but MATS has been the best Gk for a couple years now, imo. The entitlement at Bayern is something else.

Recently seen the best description for Dembele: best player in the world for 5 minutes. Brainless donkey the rest of the time

I don't know what to make of Dembele tbh. He's even more frustrating than Nani, if that's even possible. He has truly world class and then truly baffling decisions in the same game and sometime in the same minute. He gave away the ball so stupidly so many times and yet he had a lot of good moments and ended up with a great goal. Whatever he is though, he's still a far better option than having to put Griezmann or De Jong on that left wing. Need to rotate him and Fati on that wing.

agree. even Messi said that it all depends on him, that he has the tools the be one of the best. obviously he won't say something like "he'll get there when he stops being an idiot", but he doesn't need to. at the start of the match, you could usually tell which Nani you will watch for the rest of the game, but Dembele can go through several phases even in just couple of minutes. one minute he is an idiot, minute later he eats their right back for breakfast and scores, then he fecks another attack in next minute, then he gets red... just brainless.

1) ter Stegen had a lot of bad games for Germany while Neuer always performed for Germany and still does even if he had 6 very average months for Bayern.
2) It was ter Stegen who made a public comment and now that's Bayern's fault? I think people really like to blame Bayern for everything. ter Stegen is disrespectful towards Neuer/Löw and somehow Bayern is the bad guy in this now.

And Suarez is the same at this stage of his career. Goes from Heskey to Rivaldo within the same game. Utterly frustrating frontline.

Bayern’s idiotic comment about how they’d refuse to send players from their team to the German NT if Neuer doesn’t continue as the starting GK is pretty pathetic. Like the pettiest thing I’ve heard a team threaten to do in years.

Was at the Barca/Sevilla game to finish my football trip. Wonderful to see Messi score off a free kick

I think this Barca team has a lot more potential in attack once they remain healthy and get some rhythm but the defense needs a lot of work.

Arthur and De Jong in midfield is a dream come true.

Espanyol massively overachieved last season to get europa. Also lost Hermoso and Borja Iglesias. Fine margins.

I am happy to see Machin back, did outstanding work at Girona and thought he was unlucky to lose his job so early at Sevilla.

Depor sacked Anquela (nicknamed Anquelotti only a couple of months ago). Now Luis César.
Perhaps some of you will remember him from a few years ago, when Nastic was in Primera.
From 0 to 10 level of excitement among the fans? -2

"Eriksen in the january window".
the club maintains their firm commitment to strengthen in January. The club do not want another Kepa case
Madrid make Zidane see that the Danish is necessary due to the shortage of midfielders. He would cost only 30 million but he wants to come in June for the wages(tranfer bonus/commission?)

He should have arrived in the summer but still if this happens. :drool:

It's crazy how the media keep insisting in their crusade to pretend that Isco and James aren't midfielders but Eriksen, who is exactly the same type of player, somehow is :lol:

Also, feck me, a guy who can't deal with pressure at real madrid :lol:

it's unbelievable that he managed to become their all-time top scorer in such a short time. he played like, 4 seasons for them, missing 6 months after his first injury and then another 10 months after his second injury. his closest follower is Forlan with almost 25 goals less which means two ex-United players are first and second top scorers in Villarreal history.

Oh that is exciting, thought Rossi had retired as hadn't heard of him for a few years.

Ridiculous bad luck with injuries ever since he left Man. United, he also scored decent amount for Fiorentina.
