Wake up, people. Wake up. No interaction here. :/

So, who may be coming/going in the Jan transfer to/from our club?
Di Maria should imo? PSG will try to offload him and his still a quality player, good friends with Messi and a decent stop gap signing for now.

Coutinho, he looks like his not motivated for Livepool anymore. He puts more effort for Brazil then he does for Liverpool. Just get him already.

The club can not rely on Messi all season, I don't want to see this man burned out from carrying Barca the entire way throu considering his going to lead Argentina in the WC and boy do they need him more.
Di Maria? 🤦‍♂️ I would rather keep Gomes and turan than get di Maria. We won't be signing anyone in January. I hope we go for Eriksen instead of coutinho in the summer but this board has a weird fetish for Brazilians
In January nobody that is a star.
Summer transfer - Antoine Griezmann and Coutinho.
After a disastrous 2014 world cup, are Spain favorites again for the world cup next year? They have incredible depth and the new generation of players like Isco, Morata, Koke, etc have really stepped up. Also, Don Andres can still be the best midfielder in the world when fit.

For me, they are favorites alongside Brazil and Germany. One of these 3 teams will be in the final for sure.
Brazil is no near being favourite for World Cup
Germany is the clear favourite alongside Spain and France
Brazil blitzed the toughest world cup qualifiers in the world when everyone else struggled. France are mediocre with their coach. A lot of their talents are young too
+1
Germany are still favorites to win imo. Spain have lots of quality and play some great football with some amazing MF like you mentioned but Germany's organization and efficiency is tremendous. I think Spain comes at a close 2nd. If I had to pick between Spain's youth and Germany's, I'll go with Germany having beaten Spain U21 in the Championship just last summer and in the same time the Germany B team beat a strong experienced Chilean side and won the Confederations Cup.

My list of favorites:
1. Germany
2. Spain
3. France
4. Brazil

Although their will be plenty of first timers at the WC, so I'm hoping for some great upsets. I want to see more sides like Algeria and Costa Rica.
Aliko have you seen brazil play? they are playing insanely good. easily one of the favourites. this isn't the brazil fo 2014
I know they're good but this doesn't bring them up to be favourites.
Why don't we count Portugal for example as favourites?!
^Because that makes no sense...
+6
For me, Germany and France are favorites. What france lack in experience they make up in quality. Not a team in the world can keep up with their young attackers in transition. Germany is just germany, a well-organized and talented machine.

What have Spain done to gain y'all's high approval? I don't think Spain has great depth at CF, and their central midfield is not what is used to be. Their defense is aging and error prone. DDG covers a lot of cracks but he's not perfect. They are surely one of the better teams and will go far, but I dont think they are quite as threatening as france and germany.
The strongest team Portugal faced was Switzerland while Brazil faced Columbia, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and I have to mention Peru. I didn't see that coming. Peru have to be the shock of the South America qualifying. Brazil booked their ticket for the world cup a long time ago as THE NUMBER 1 TEAM in South America. Even in the last world cup they had a decent run until Neymar got injured and T. Silva got suspended. Then they got wreckt by Germany.
+1
^AND they still qualified in record time...
Brazil is insanely good and talented, although probably not well coached.
Here is my favorites for taking the cup:

1. Brazil
2.Germany
3.France
4.Argentina , I know they are nowhere near the top, they lack strikers, but with Messi on the field, everything is possible :-)
Argentina just got owned by Nigeria 4-2 without Messi today. He can only do so much. That team is absolute s**t and wouldn't even have qualified if not for Messi
+2
No youre right Argentina are far from favourites. their defence is clueless and their attack is too dependent on Messi.
+2
I know, I know , Argentina has no business in the top6, frankly I hated to think this could be Messi's last WC and he has no chance of winning it . So I
I included them in the 4th place just in case they find their identity and good players between now and the WC :-)
France has the most stacked talent but they dont have an elite coach same with Belgium
1) Germany
2) Spain
3) France
4) Brazil/Argentina ( Too dependent on Neymar/Messi but both can change a match in a minute )
1. Spain - Experience and proven player matter at big stage. Morata and Costa will be lethal attack

2. Germany - They dont have a top striker for first time in years. IMO Muller has faded a bit and other look ok.

3. Brazil - I think defense is a big issue and they will be punished by big team in Semi finals.

4. France - Too much talent but a mediocre coach
Whenever Argentina play there are always a few players I have never seen or heard of before.
+1
I told you so...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5057635/Real-Madrid-want-Neymar-replace-Cristiano-Ronaldo.html
It could very well happen, Perez is a smart man, he is looking to strengthen his team after Cristiano fades away, and right now, after Messi and Cristiano, Neymar is the best out there. Perez also knows Neymar can easily be lured with money and spotlight.
Frankly, I don't care where Neymar lands after he left Barca, as far as I'm concerned he can come back or play fora rival, doesn't matter.
I just wish our boards also starts planning and strengthening the current squad and planning for the future.
Tbh, makes sense. Neymar wouldn't directly go from Barca to Madrid as it would not look good on him. PSG and ligue 1 will get boring eventually and he will want to prove himself and probably try to dethrone the king at an el classico.
+2
Meh, couldn't care less. We need to focus on fixing the midfield issues we have
I don't see Real forking out 400m.
to be the next Robinho?
+1
One of the artists of football is saying goodbye

Thank you Pirlo for your magic moments and pieces of arts!

Grazie Pirlo!

In every era there are a handful of elite midfielders. Pirlo was one of them. Wishing Pirlo all the best in his retirement.
200 mayors of Catalunya will travel to Brussels tomorrow, to tell their stories of what's going on there first-hand to the EU.

More wanted to come, but there aren't enough flights...

I am certain now that the idiotically harsh approach of Madrid concerning the situation reduced the 50% Catalans who wanted to stay with Spain to about 15%. What a bunch of arrogant morons. To think that treating their richest province as a naughty child would fix things...

It seriously upsets me. I didn't want Catalunya to become independent, but if there's still anyone who doesn't understand the Catalans wish for independence now, they must be delirious or ignorant. If only Madrid had dealt with it like grown-ups and entered a normal dialogue, the whole thing could've been settled by giving the Catalans slightly more voice in what they do with their own taxes, which is what started it all.
Oh, and relevant to football: this will be the end of Barça in La Liga, I'm afraid.
even if they were mistreated in an incident, i don't think they have the legal power to secede. or am i missing something? what's the EU going to do about it?
I sympathise with the catalonians and their strugle for independent country, but you are saying it as if they will get their independence? Aren't there massive fuckups going there as @SIF stated? Also Catalonian president fled from there, I got the impression that he abandoned the whole idea of independence or I'm missing something?

Sadly even if they get independence from Spain no one will recognize Catalonia, maybe some few irelevent countries would, but not EU, EU would be too stupid to backstab Spain and risk another Brexit. That basically means that Catalonias economy would fall dramatically without any major trading partners/tourism.
Suarez is playing horrible
Paco scored a brace and got subbed for being a nice guy(I don't find any other excuses for him to be subbed), while Suarez who was worse than horrible stayed on the field and made sure he screw up all the balls he had. GOod job Ernesto Velvelvelde.
+3
Even messi had a bad night.loosing the ball, slowing the game and misplaced passes. It was a bad second half
As much as I like to blame individuals for our performance tonight but It is all Valverde's fault.

We have no game plan. That is why Suarez is always out of position this season, as either he is way too far on the left side or right side. Messi is playing way too deep in the midfield. And Rakitic is not doing any overlap runs to help Semedo on right hand side. At times, I did not know what formation we were playing.

What I also could not understand was that why take Paco out when he was the only one making good runs.

It all goes back to our coach and his decision making. Beside the first leg against Olympiacos, I have not been too convinced with our team's way of playing as we have not been very dominate in most of our games
Messi has been CR7 tonight, and Suarez very close to king Douglas.
Bench that damn Ivan Slow-motion Rakitic now!
+1
What are your predictions for today's match? I predict 3-1.
Hard to say because if Rakitic plays well and does not slow us down, I think we have a decent line up. I would say 2-1
+2
You predicted correctly! yay!!!
Yea. Even though it was a bad performance, I am still glad we won to keep the gap.
