    How that happend i will never understand. He was nothing special at Valencia and i can't see top shelf qualities but props for the guy, he does really well at City.

    All our DMs are better and Madrid is perfect. If you disagree, go support City.

    Some good matches today. UCL always reminds me how great it is to work from home haha.

    Guardiola.

    Think about how many players looked absolute elite in his teams only to drop levels anywhere else. Not to say Rodri sucks or anything, but it has been a thing ever since he started his managerial career. Partly it is due to the fact that his teams play such an imposing game. Which in turns helps all individuals. And he is of course a great manager who is able to get each one of his players to play at their very best.

    Was this a Spanish ref who gave that penalty to PSG?

    Shocking decision. Has to be a Spanish ref. And the funniest thing was how confidently he did it too. Not even a hesitation. Lol

    Lol I think he was being sarcastic.

    The fact that he used plural for DMs when we have ONE DM (Carlo disagrees) should have been your first clue.

    It is, but this guy is the classic melt that says we'll never win, always predicts the team to lose then celebrates when Madrid wins. Just the total loser mentality.

    It makes everybody miserable.

    I know the fact that Madrid has won so many trophies means that's the only thing people are there for, but it still annoys me a lot. People don't want to enjoy the games, they'd rather skip to the end of the season.

    It never ceases to amaze how an already extreme viewpoint is somehow, someway even blown to an even more absurd extreme to prove their point. :ROFLMAO:

    I want the Spanish teams to do well in Europe. If Atleti beats Bayern, City or PSG 6-0, it makes my day. For others here it's reason to be jealous and miserable, but it doesn't matter.

    I agree; we might be a minority. But I really want Spanish teams to do well as it will bring in more revenue to the league as a whole. Without Barcelona it would be like Ligue Uber Eats.

    It's bad enough teams like West Ham, Aston Villa, etc. can outspend all the teams in our league.

    I want Barcelona to lose even if it's the u14 women's volleyball team. That being said, CL group games, especially against random Belgian teams, matters very little to anyone but the teams playing.

    Valencia was a hateful team, and Depor were a pain for as long as it lasted, but arguably the football was better when there were a lot of strong teams from Spain around.

    This is the one that gets me the most. Same with people that were in panic mode about Chelsea spending all that money. Sometimes you have to sit and watch it all play out.

    Well, the "ignore" button can be your friend in those cases, lol.

    Some guys said the poster in question was "panicking." I think he's annoyed, just as I am, that Barcelona manages to dominate games against teams like Betis, for example, which we rarely do.

    The end of the season is what matters and I'm quite happy with our team. But I know this team well. If we start dropping points by December/January, we can kiss another league goodbye. That's no panicking. It is acknowledging the team's typical drop in form/lost interest in La Liga.

    Or...back the team and coach until it's over. Not before we've even faced them (City / Barce) or before the season has finished.

    Midget mentality at it's finest.

    Some people have been at it for years. It's all a self defense mechanism, just prepare for the worst in case it happens.

    Also, as a mod I can't ignore people as much as I'd want to.

    My idea is that some people are incredibly entitled and think the club owes them a trophy per year. You're saying yourself that there's other good teams as well, it's natural.

    Kane's family not moving to Munich and buyback clause reports during the same week.

    I think he won't play out his contract in Munich. Especially if the family doesn't move to Germany long term
