As a Barca and Inter fan I'm ashamed of the approach Varvelde took about this game. Barca always has been famous of playing for true spirit of football, but everything has been f****d up recently.
Horrible day for football.
+3
Well from Barca’s point of view why would they risk their key players for a game that doesnt really matter to them? Spurs or Inter going through makes no difference to them as neither of these teams pose enough threat to Barca if they were to meet in the knockout round.
+1
That's what I said, Barca always been a club that were not taking their own "point of view" into consideration over the game's true spirit. But everything is business nowadays, and talking about ideals and high values sounds ridiculous and nonsense.
+2
Lol what? So you're mad cause Barca rested key players after they qualified as first? If that was say Moskov and Red Star, would you have wanted us to play for 'games true spirit'?

I know it sucks that one of your favourite teams got out of the competition but you can't blame us for it. Inter had a good chance of winning the game today but they bottled it. That's not on us, that's on them. Had Inter beat a very beatable PSV side then it would look like we had done our job with our 'B' team. But they failed.

I'm glad players like Munir, Alena, Virmaelen, Miranda got playing time.
+3
Sour grapes or what?
+1
Exactly. Inter failed to beat psv at home in a crunch match. It's their fault, not ours. I remember during Pep era when he used to field entire eleven of B team kids in the final CL group stage game . Valverde was much more respectful than that towards the opponent
I really liked the fact that Valverde rested key players for a non-important match. he needs to do more of that not less, he needs to have the second squad play the copa games so that main squad stays fresh for the champions league. I understand that you wanted Inter to go through, but they had to win the game on their own, if they couldn't beat PSV, they probably didn't deserve to go through anyways . Totenham showed hunger and were going to win if not for the outstanding Cilissen. Valverde legacy and job depends on the champions league, he couldn't risk his players just for fun.
OMG Dembele. What a goal
Very impressive! It looked effortless and KWP is actually not slow.
This is Dembele when he is being unprofessional and unsettled. Imagine how good he will be when he gets his s**t together
Dembele keeps getting better with each game. Hope he keeps this up
He certainly is but he could be a lot better. Watching him is very frustrating sometimes. Easy misplaced passes, loses the ball quite often and is sometimes lost on the pitch.

He's still quite young and if he keeps his head down and works hard, he will be one of the best for sure.
+1
2h late in training today.

AGAIN.

He's a super talent, but an unprofessional lazy child and drastically needs to turn that around.
This Messi guy slotting home 2 free kicks sublimely and adding an assist, 8 successful dribbles and 5 big chances created... He deserves that 5th spot in the Ballon d'Or election this year.
+2
Really? 5th is too much. Every tom, dick and harry can do that
+2
I am still hoping for him to come back from retirement, win the world cup with Argentina and go down as the greatest of all time.
When I think of Iniesta who scored the winning goal for Spain in WC 10 and all his on the field magic , the most fair player ever, he never won the ballon d'or , I doubt the fairness/authenticity of this award.
Seriously, they should find a way to award the ballon d'or to Andres.
That said, I do support awarding the ballon d'or to someone other than Messi & Ronaldo, these two guys are in another league of their own, but they've won it more than enough, time for someone else to win it.
2018 was a disappointing year when it comes to individual brilliance in football. I'm biased, of course, but I feel Messi should've won it, followed in 2nd place by David Silva, 3rd place for Modric, 4th for De Bruyne, 5th for Ronaldo.

Griezmann is a joke; he's top 50, not top 5. Mbappé is insanely good for a teenager, but not top 5 in the world yet amongst all the big boys. The focus for this individual trophy is FAR too mich on team trophies won and the World Cup. David Silva isn't even top 30 but he's probably been the best midfielder of 2018. Then there's players like Ter Stegen, De Gea and a host of great defenders who don't even get mentioned... Just ridiculous. As if it requires more talent to score goals than to deny them. It just requires different talents.
+3
Team statistics taken into account on an individual award always rubbed me the wrong way. Reserves get medals too, but doesn't mean they did anything special.

Defenders will always be at a disadvantage because at it's core football is about handling the ball and best at that usually play at the front. Strikers dominate these awards because they score goals as well and that's what people care about.

At some point it becomes a popularity contest. You put the greatest player in the world in a mid table team, have him score 50 goals and it won't matter unless the team wins something. Ridiculous.

It's the reason Ramos keeps showing up in best11s all the time. He scores goals and his team wins. Real Madrid the best team in the world because they won a select few matches. Same thing.
+1
Congrats to them for being the top three but this award no longer means sh** to me since non-footballing factors became the main basis since years.
i choose to enjoy the real football magicians and ballers (that according to fifa and uefa didnt make it to top 3), kids can enjoy the award.
Ballon d'or is a popularity contest. Sometimes they give based on individual brilliance and sometimes based on trophies. 2010 was the year when I thought Sneijder would win it but he was not even in top 3. Iniesta was superb but so was Sneijder. He won treble with Inter Milan and was joint top scorer and arguably best player in the world cup helping Netherlands reach final.
+2
Woah Griezmann is no joke! :O he was personally my favourite performer at the World Cup over Mbappe. Top 20 at least. But yeah it seems like the results were more based off World Cup results this time around.
Again Dembele shows why he should be in the starting 11. The guy has lighting speed and very good at dribbling. We need his dribbling ability in our team. Valverde keeps playing the same players over and over with zero tactics implemented in the game. Dembele gives us a plan B which we need badly.
The problem is consistency. He has started with us before and has s**t games where he misplaces passes and doesn't make the right decisions. He has actually been a great impact player from the bench this season more than he has been a better starter. So I guess this "he should start" debate is not so black or white of a topic
+6
He, obviously, has some qualities and that's why we signed him in the first place, but before seeing him in starting line-up he needs to change his attitude and takes this team and life in Barcelona more seriously. Hope he grows up soon and gets what he deserves.
He played well today though. Let's hope he's just maturing and will find the determination and professionalism our senior players have. He'll be world class then.
He's improving with every game but he will only do so if he starts every game. Wonder what Valverde will do once Suarez is back
I think his attitude is problematic, he looses the ball way too often and doesn't get pissed off when he looses it. Don't get me wrong ,he has tremendous talent and speed, but I think he lacks the competitive fire needed at this level.
Valverde is a huge liability. He never seems to learn from his mistakes
+1
How reliable "Football Leaks" is ?
What if Wenger would manage Barca ?!
Please no. No disrespect to the man but his Arsenal side stopped playing good football like 5 or 6 years ago. His team can't defend nor attack. He got destroyed by big teams in CL over and over again.
+1
I would actually pay to see that.
to be fair to Wenger, he didn't have financial backings due to the stadium development and the fact that his best players all left for a direct rival heavenly backfired and Arsenal competed for so long with the Top 4

+2
3 goals came from the left side where Roberto plays!
+4
S. Roberto is a la masia product and although he is liable in defense, he will never get criticized by cules. Same with Pique. 18 goals allowed in 12 games. But cules will easily criticize Dembele for wearing a toque and glasses watching a game from stands.
