Hi guys, I posted here occasionally in the past but over the last 12 months my lifes been crazy, and this is the first chance I've had to make a real effort to log on regularly. I am undecided about whether Van Gaal's return is a good or bad thing. I worry that the team may be filled with second-rate dutchmen like he did before, leaving Barca with a lot of 'deadwood' players who played even worse after he had left. Of course its a massive shame to see Rivo leave after those years of tremendous service. However over the last 2 years, under Ferrer and Rexach I feel the team became too dependant on Rivaldo and everything was based around him. If the team were losing 1-0, everyone pinned their hopes on Rivo to save the day, rather than expecting/hoping the team create goals collectively- so when Rivo WASN'T playing, the team was completely lost. Providing we bring in a few more players this summer, I think we wont miss him. But we cant expect Riquelme to fill his boots straightaway- that much pressure will wreck him. Hope everyone is ok!
