I get the impression that Pep hasn't laid into the players much if it all this season. I'd say now is the time. Bit difficult with the kids in midfield, but the whole team would get the message.

That's exactly what it's happening, and the league is over since some weeks ago.




I don´t know why some of you expect so much from the league games. Clearly a third priority right now.

Tonight's game is crap though. But that pitch totally kills our game.

I have suspected we will not win all trophies 2 seasons in a row, and I suspected that the league will be the one we lose, because Madrid are so motivated that they will win all other games.

So I am not much disappointed as long as we win CL. Winning it two times in a row would be great.

And underestimating Osasuna to this level had to result like this.

I still think this game is far from over but now you at least know how the game playes without Xavi.A real shame he did not get the golden boot.THat guy deserves LOT MORE.
Messi has been abit off lately even with Xavi and/or Iniesta in there to be fair.

This is beyond pathetic. Either Pep makes two subs right now and sends two of Xavi-Iniesta-Cesc trio on the pitch or we officially surrender the league.

Messi is off form. Shaky shots, late shots ... Pedro is so lost that no map on Earth can help him find himself right now. I really don't get it ... Why the f*ck Pedro (who came directly out of his injury and was in bad form before) plays and not Tello who proved in the last matches that he deserves to play???

Defence is shaky, midfield nonexistant and attack impotent.

Sub Pedro for Tello, S. Roberto for Xavi/Iniesta, take Pique out and sub him with Iniesta/Xavi/Cesc and put Mascherano in defence and Thiago in DMC.

Either this or surrender the league and put in youngsters to get some experience.

We must win CL. Nobody will remember the team that won 4 consecutive domestic titles, but the team that wins 2 UCL's in a row, and 3 in 4 years - this one will be legendary forever. It sure is sad to win the race with RM, bit well life goes on...

- Substitution.

I lost faith in Pedro long time ago. He's a one season wonder, or plus a half at most.

We have to end the season without a trophy. No other cure.

Yeah with the form we're showing, CL will be a walk in the park. It wasn't easy when we were winning the league and it's even more difficult now.

I'm so angry about this performance.
We're lucky to witness this team, I know, but that's no reason for this ****ing embarassing first half.
First time in years that I'm really pissed about our play.
This was just crap.

Hope they make it up in the second half.
I dont care if we win this match or the league.
But it's one thing to fight for the league and give it everything.

This performance.. shocking.

We could blame the conditions and the calendar, but all season long there's been a real laziness and lack of hunger. We're so much better than any team in the league but we've been sleep walking all season.

Tello in for Pedro and Cuenca for Puyol.

We surrender. Now let the kids get enough playing time in the remaining of the league. It will be a good investment for the future.

That may be so, but I don't think Messi's form has that much correlation with Xavi/Iniesta's presence. He's been missing shots he'd normally put away for example, I dont get how Xavi's presence would change that.
Anyway he has a crucial 2nd half to prove otherwise, if there is anything he really needs to prove

Great move, nice finish from Alexis.

Cuenca is really good, hope he improves at this rate. Actually, Sergi Roberto is not bad either, considering he has no experience.

Exactly. His finishing is off form lately. But he get's into a lot of chances. He can dribble past 3-4 players (Valencia) with no problems, he gives assists ... but his finishing in clear chances is bad right now. I would be much much more worried if he would be totaly invisible and unable to do anything.
