Lol that is pretty funny. He probably tries to save Ibra a seat on the bus every time.
I hope so.Trippier will be out for 4-6 weeks which means Vrsaljko will have a great opportunity to establish himself at Atlético.
Experience lost due to generational change: Tiago (2017), Gabi (2018), Juanfran (2019), Godín (2019), Filipe Luís (2019), Griezmann (2019)I hope so.
You guys look like a complete mess now though. Zero offensive punch, what is going on? You might not even make it to the CL next year if this continues?
Remember when you destroyed us in the preseason? I was thinking, what the hell is going to happen in the year...even though I know it didn't really matter.Experience lost due to generational change: Tiago (2017), Gabi (2018), Juanfran (2019), Godín (2019), Filipe Luís (2019), Griezmann (2019)
The lack of the old guard means an automatic weakening of the general structure which is completely normal since Atlético don't sign players from the absolute top level of quality. The experience of knowing exactly what to do inside a consolidated system is also something that can't be bought right away, it's something that's teached during a longer period of time.
Players who were supposed to replace lost: Rodrigo (Tiago), Lucas (Godín)
Primary goalscoring: Nobody's replaced Griezmanns primary goalscoring. It was supposed to be shared between Morata, Diego Costa and João Félix.
Morata has missed the biggest amount of clear cut chances in LaLiga this season but plays really well for the team. Diego Costa injured himself in Stockholm in pre-season against Juventus once he had finally entered his real ability again. Played with a herniated disc for several weeks in october and had to undergo surgery 2,5 months ago. João will have been out for a total of 8-10 weeks this season once he returns from his latest injury.
A good 12-14 points have been lost due to bad finishing.
Current injuries: Trippier, Arias, Giménez, Koke, Herrera, João Félix, Morata, Diego Costa
The main problem has been a lack of quality in front of goal, especially between September until December. Then the usual slump in form in January (usually calculated because of the periodic training) and the subsequent injury crisis.
Most important thing is to qualify for the Champions League.
