Great video for cules

I never saw Xavi's face when he entered the stadium in his final game at home... I'm touched to see he was so surprised at the huge banner of him :)

Videos like these just make you realize how unbelievably awesome our team has been for the past decade. Several of the key players in our team can be considered as some of the greatest the world has ever seen. Makes me wish statues of them will be erected once they retire. Imagine a park in Barcelona where you can walk amongst life-sized statues of Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Leo, Busi, Piqué & Suárez; sculpted in their moments of glory. Would be a thrilling experience. Come to think of it, the statues should probably be scaled at 1,5:1 since most of our legends are kinda small in real life :D
Great video. Shows how difficult it was to win those games. Everyone played vital roles when needed. Shows how everyone needs to step up to win titles. Made my heart smile.
We are interested in Carrasco. Atletico want to raise his release clause. Now it's at 40m €
As much as I love the Belgian football stars, I hope Yannick stays at Atlético. They love him there and he has a brighter future there too. What's he going to do when MSN are all fit? Nothing, that's what. He's not yet a starter for Atlético all the time, he won't be getting much playing time here this season. Or the next.
Just watched Arsenal's game vs Basel. Arsenal created so many chances and missed so many easy ones. Sanchez missed a one on one when he tried to chip the keeper. It goes to show how difficult it is to convert even the easy chances. When Messi, Suarez and Cristiano do this day in, day out relentlessly every month, every year we don't really feel how difficult it is to continue scoring at their levels.
+3
they all miss easy chances.. you guys complain about suarez all the time. the top players have a conversion rate of 30% or so.
+2
They miss easy but convert extremely difficult ones too. Not sure you got the point. The fact is they've been banging in 35+ goals every year which is a massive feat for most players. We've become so used to it that these players, especially messi and ronaldo get criticized for scoring 40+ goals.
+2
yes i got the point, did you get mine? all players miss easy chances. in fact, even the best still don't score with more than 30-40% of their shots. Even with clear-cut chances, i think converting over 50% puts you in rarified air.

the biggest goal scorers simply have the most attempts at goals. they get into good positions and of course are typically more clinical than others, but still miss a whole lot of chances. wonder goals are great, but you don't win scoring titles with wonder goals, you win with the tap-ins and simple finishes.

basically, the arsenal misses are nothing atypical, you surely see them frequently at barca. it's just that typically you have more games like arsenal just did (in terms of dominance), so sometimes you'll score 2 or 3, sometimes 5 or 6.
+3
First time in my life, I am seeing SoccerIsFootball making sense.
SIF makes a lot of sense most of the time. He's just outspoken about everything related to football. And since people remember the bad more than the good, somehow a lot of fanbases here on FT have issues with SIF.

It used to be the same with me when I was still more active here; hence the huge amount of 'rude' votes I have while also having as many 'clever/cool' votes. You either love or hate outspoken guys like us :)
Atletico being a total monster to Bayern today was amazing to watch. Good to see Celtic isn't the pushovers everyone expected. CL has been awesome.

What a narrow victory huh? Pique was once again there to ensure the points. Good lad.
+1
Quite worrying about neymar form,he has been poor yesterday and it seems crowd's boos affecting his play.
Also lucho made some tactical mistake by playing Paco who is still struggling to adapt instead Arda turan who is in sensational form this season especially in an important match like this.He cost us to drop two points against atleti by rather playing Gomez for busi instead of bringing masch into midfield.I hope he learns from this.
+2
Don't worry about Neymar, him and Suarez will be linking up soon enough and their lack of form will be a thing of the past.

Busquets made a small mistake that made the game quite interesting to watch. The way we celebrated this win it looked like we won the whole thing lol.

Arda Turan has earned playing time for sure.
+1
Neymar definitely had a bad night. Holding the ball for too long, trying tricks that never worked, and frequently losing the ball...

But he also made the assist for 1:1, gave the pass from corner to Suarez for 2:1, had 2 could-have-been assists to Suarez, and ran up and down the field quite a lot.
That's why I still think we rely on Messi a lot. We were a little lost yesterday in attack and midfield without messi.

With neymar, you don't know what you will get. One game, he will be the perfect team player and the next game he will try every trick in his book and keep losing the ball. Last game,he lost possession 27 times
To be fair, our team play is designed to utilize messi's genius to the maximum. When he gets injured, the transition is difficult. But I agree about Neymar. He spends a lot of time on the field trying to humiliate other players hoping that the ref would give a foul every time. He needs to learn when to hold the ball and when to release it for others. Long way to go before he can step into messi's shoes.
I hope Bayern loses German league to Dortmund this year so that their delusional fans can realise two things and come back to the ground level:

1) You do not win treble every year. Even a suppeerr coach like Jupp Heynckes achieved such feat only once in his entire managerial career.

2) Defeats happen not only because of your team's fault (or manager's tactics) but also because of the opponent's greatness. There are equally good or better teams than yours in world football. You are entitled to nothing just because you won treble once.
+2
They might lose buli titles to bvb as Carlo never been a great league coach and would win ucl.Bayern fans will be fine to win ucl at the expense of league titles,lol.

Pep is too stubborn with his philosophy,he won't sacrifice his philosophy for winning at any cost.it will be fine when we are playing home,but it cause problems when we are away.we love him because of his non negotiable philosophy along with titles.We could've have said same like Bayern fan if he didn't win much with his philosophy,who knows.
+1
Everyone is acting like Pep being stubborn is so bad and the only reason he loses some matches. First, he isn't that stubborn, he is quite flexible tactically. It's impossible to win all games. And second, yes, he stays true to his ideas and that makes him look stubborn, but this is the way to perfect your team and your style. You cannot expect to master a way of playing if you constantly revert to a fallback option when the going gets tough.
+1
Love this Leo guy so sensible and ultra reasonable.
+1
Carrasco scores & Griezman misses a PK against a big team.
What else is new? :P

Gotta mention the Belgians tonight: Mertens MOTM for Napoli with 2 goals, Carrasco for Atlético and Thorgan Hazard scored against us :)
+1
Wrong forum...:P
^ what he said
Bayern have appointed Carlo to beat Spanish teams,it's not happening,lol.
Griezzmann missed a penalty and Atletico still beat bayern 1-0. Can't be blaming Pep now
+1
Of course he has to be blamed. He inherited a great team and ruined it for Carlo.
+6
Just checked his penalty stats. Missed 4 out of 7 he's taken lol. And they had Gameiro on the pitch and they gave the penalty to Griezmann.
+2
^ why not? Don't you know? He's better than messi and Suarez?
+1
He is only been here for two months wtf?
That's because Griezmann is the king in the team. He's the Ronaldo or Messi of Atleti.

How many penalties has Messi missed? Can't be any better than Griezmann surely.

Bavaria: We're blaming Pep. Keep up mate!
+3
Lol Isco Disco do you really think Messi has missed more than half of his penalties like Griezmann? His conversion rate is 78, not great but still way better than Griezmann.
+2
Had pep in charge,fans already would have been started talking about how overrated their coach are,lol.

Poor pep never gets the recognition there.
+2
Sure you are lol
4ever
thats a retarded statement
+2
^trying to keep up with fellow cules,lol.and I had seen some saying such statements when you guys were losing during pep time,so :)
Well I guess it can be argued that Messi has taken way more penalties which is why his numbers look better =p

In any case both are not the greatest penalty takers. For Atleti's sake they need someone better to take them or it could cost them dearly
@Bayern fans: we're clearly just joking, but some of us are a little bit bitter Pep didn't get the love we feel he deserved at Bayern.
We all love him unconditionally here.
+1
4ever, yes most of the fans begun saying s**t when Peps Bayern lost to Real, cause we have never experienced being humiliated at home before, but before that no one said s**t about him.
Carlo has been in charge for barely two months, and I already see sarcastic comments being made here, like we are blaming Pep lol
Jeroen. I know, but why should Bayern love him?
+3
^Because he won basically everything but the CL. Several times over. And he made several players a ton better.

Some day you might realize winning trebles year in, year out doesn't happen all that often.
+2
"Because he won basically everything but the CL. Several times over. And he made several players a ton better."

Things that were guaranteed whether or not Guardiola went to Bayern lol
+3
You can't demand or even feel bitter someone you love isn't loved the same way. Bayern fans are free to love or hate him as they want period. You on the other chance have no such. He transformed your team into a modern day beast and made barca into cl favorites year in year out. Wasn't the case before he took over.

Had pep won two cl's for us then hating him would rather be high-minded and down right idiotic on our part.

I see you all poking fun at our expense like you've had a better result against Atl Madrid. Carry on.
+2
wow thanks and I thought we were going to win treble this year, cause we won so many of them right?

With the squad he had with Bayern winning the league and cup weren't that impressive, the only thing we were hoping for were making it to the CL final at least, but the record he had with Bayern in CL were little over average, loosing to teams like Porto etc. away and trying to comeback at home, and that happened very too often.
+2
Bayern fans: The point here is there was this backlash against pep (not really from bayern fans) but random pep haters that he somehow ruined the perfect bayern team. A lot of these people didn't realize that trebles are nearly impossible to repeat and winning back to back ucl hasn't been done yet.

More importantly, there was this assumption that since barca lost badly to bayern, they were invincible so when pep didn't do well with bayern, he ruined the team. People fail to acknowledge that when u win the ucl people take you very very seriously and the level of difficulty goes up substantially next year. There's also the motivation factor among players who don't perform at the same level after winning a trophy. The sarcasm on this thread is highlighting the unrealistic expectations people had from pep after bayern won the treble. Somehow people thought that if juup had continued instead of pep, madrid and barca would have just stood around with the two best players in the world not raising their game, while Juup's bayern would continue winning like the previous year.
+3
By the way, it's funny how people think league wins are guaranteed. Look at PSG. They were untouchable last few years in France. Now emery is there and they're struggling.
They're so sensitive,lol.they can't even handle some banter.
+1
That is very ironic thing to say from a Barca fan
+4
Sensitive you say... I remember when folks poked fun at messi's expense over his failures to win the copa while ronaldo won the euros and all i can say is you all handled that banter in exemplary fashion. Talk about not being able to handle banter.
+4
We are also sensitive may be,but am ofcourse not one of them.we have chat group with different club supporters and we poke fun of them.it's all good as long as it doesn't go out of boundary.

I'm all for good banter but criticizing a fan group for not loving a living legend of your club is not banter. Pep did a lot for our club no doubt and some of us love him while others not so much but it's a personal choice not an obligation. I love Pep because i love him and not because i'm told by some one to. We can banter all we want but bayern fans loving or not loving pep is a touchy one for us.
+3
OK,let's end this.we have good relationship with Bayern fans.
Let me clarify you that we poke fun not because someone love or not loving him,it's because some disrespecting his achievements at barca,his achievements at Bayern etc etc

For an eg. If a cule said they hate mourinho and rejoicing his downfall,then it's normal because of his bad relationship with us.
But if a cule said he considers him as poor coach,then it's stupidity.
I hope you understand what I meant.
Completely agreed on that. Whatever the attitude of our fans are towards Pep they can't deny Pep did a fantastic job in general at bayern. Usually folks who criticize his achievements at bayern are those who try to belittle our league.

I have equally taken exceptions to such notions. I don't take his achievements with my team lightly. Heard a couple of times that anyone could win the buli with bayern so pep shouldn't be credited for that. Not remembering that before he came and before jupp's final season Dortmund had us under their thumbs.

If this is about ridiculing pep's haters then I've been on your side for as long as i can remember but we shouldn't force loving pep down on anyone's throat.

We are good; no harm done bro. We can all move forward together. Much love.
+2
Fair bro.am glad finally we understand each other.I hope you guys win buli asap and only to lose against us in ucl final,lol.
Finals? Which one of us would volunteer to knock Atl Madrid out then? I do hope you guys get them for my team can hope for a one legged victory against those 'demons' but over the course of two legs??? I would rather not face them in a knock out. Even if you win against them your team will need several months to get back in shape lol.
I don't know who's more mad about Bayern's loss, Bayern fans or Madrid fans lol
+1
It's an interesting question,lol.But we almost broke them in last Thursday.if not momentarily lapse of concentration due to busi and Messi injury,we would have won the match.That said its nearly an impossible task to beat them in two legged matches.I think if we prevent them scoring first half goal,then we would have chance.
Bayern losing to Atletico. Thanks Pep Guardiola!
+3
Pep is the worse manager in the history of football. Only keyboard warrior like me is the greatest :P .
+1
Ancelotti's amazing counter attacking style couldn't break down Atleti. Who would have thought?
+6
It will take years to undo the mess pep left xD
