Lol at least we didn't ship 3 goals in a CL knockout away game. This is the limit with this coach and players like Suarez.
Valverde is not an unintelligent man, nor is he tactically inept per se. I was actually pleasantly surprised by his starting line-up this evening. But he does lacks courage--and you need courage to make bold real-time decisions during difficult moments of the game. Which is why the timing of his contract extension didn't make a lot sense to me.

In any event, not a terrible result, but I am worried about the mood inside the camp, considering what we have coming up. Take nothing away from Lyon, though. I thought they played with tremendous discipline tonight. The second half will be different in our backyard.

That's the problem with Valverde. He is decent tactically, but simply doesn't have the guts to sub out Suarez , Rakitic, etc. We could have used Malcom today. Whatever happened to him after his good performance against Real Madrid.
Football champagne. Let's enjoy!

Game plan = Give the ball to Messi.
Valverde contract extension announced. The board must be damn satisfied with him to extend his contrat just before crutial deadlines.

So atleast another Messi's precious remaining season with us will be wasted with an average Coach.
De Jong bossed the match

Yep played very good. I feel like Ajax deserved something from this game but Madrid have way too much experience

Ok so I have defender EV a lot. But I swear to God if Semedo doesn't become our starting RB, I'm personally going to go to Barcelona and start a damm f*****g riot.

I love Sergi but Semedo is miles ahead. Defensively, offensively, better athlete, you name it.

As for Coutinho, does he not realize it's not working for him on the wings? Can we please play him in Iniesta's position...the position he was bought for? I dream of this lineup

Dembele--Suarez--Messi
Coutinho--Busi--King Arthur

And Malcolm. Wow. After he missed that one on one, he became on fire. He grew as the match went on, easily beating his players. He needs to see a lot more playing time. My motm alongside Semedo.

Looks like you just woke up. The fact E.V doesn't see what everyone sees says a lot

Coutinho cannot play in midfield because he doesn't press. He doesn't have the stamina to put in the defensive shift that is required of a Barca midfielder. Also, he seems to be the type of player who dribbles into the crowd with his head down. It is fine if he is playing up front, but if he does that in midfield, we are dead.

As for the RB situation, if Roberto wasn't a La Masia graduate, he would be nowhere near the squad right now. As a defender, Semedo is just miles ahead. It's not even funny anymore.

"if Roberto wasn't a La Masia graduate, he would be nowhere near the squad right now."

You guys miss the most important point about Roberto which is the fact that he not even a RB. He was used as a RB because we didn't have anyone to play there, and since then all the coaches have forgotten about the fact that he is a CM. I still remember how he destroyed Madrid in Bernabeu by his pressing and creativity 3 seasons ago, without having Messi on the pitch.
Very poor performance by our midfielders. Not sure what happened to Coutinho, he is no where close to himself, where he was at the beginning of the season. Meanwhile, Malcom and Semedo are so damn good. Their chemistry is too good to be benched.
I hope EV is smart enough not to play injured Messi for the the copa. We have been dependent on Messi to save us every game, it is not even funny. The rest of the guys have to pick up the slack.

Atletico dropping points is a big stroke of luck. With the upcoming fixtures, points will probably be dropped in the league. Lyon, Sevilla, and Real Madrid twice all away fixtures within 12 days at the end of the month.
The treatment Semedo gets from E.V compare to what S.Roberto gets is absolutlely scandeleous. I mean one is shaky defensively, concede a penal and gets a yellow. The other is solid defensively and earn a penalty that gets the team back on track but the later one is subed at half-time. Wtf??? What S.R brings on the table that makes him E.V's favorite? He's average at best.

Then again E.V with his dear midfield composed of Rackitic and Vidal... Seriously I'm interested to know some stats from both at half-time. How many ball touched, how many passes exchanged between these two to create something... Aleñá had an average game but still was creating more and taking more risks than Rakitic and Vidal (what is his use except making rash tackles and picking up stupid yellows? Oh yeah he makes runs to the opposite box...)

Coutinho should have been subed earlier too. His case is seriously becoming alarming. He was bought yo replace Iniesta not to play on the wing. What a waste of 150M so far.

Once again Valverde with questionable coaching and Messi to bail him out. Messi is the only reason Valverde might still be coaching Barça next season.

Barcelona were clever to make Suarez sign a long-term contract before he went out on loan.
