Re: Non-EPL Football Discussion Thread 2017/18 (La Liga, Bundesliga, MLS etc.)
Board is a disgrace, Valverde comes across as a yes man. Nothing will change.
Mascherano starting in a back three. Gomes starting in a Clasico. Roberto shoved back on the wing.
Midfield has been neglected for years and the price is now being paid. Sorely short with Iniesta in the team, a total shambles without him. Paulinho to come.
Coutinho and/or Dembele (who admittedly is a phenomenal talent) won't be solving the problems either. Another season of over-reliance on Messi to do everything.
Fair play to Madrid, they've smelt blood and been absolutely relentless. Modric has made Gomes look like a lost schoolboy.
Could've had Asensio for 4 million, turned him down. Didn't go for Modric and Kroos (both were keen on Barca), now they're running rings around every midfield in Europe and keeping Madrid looking just as good no matter what combination of their 7 or 8 attackers they play in the front 3. Thiago sold for peanuts and missed now more than ever. Blunder after blunder.
