Mengele will boss it. I'm more worried about Celades' insistance on playing out from the back and keeping possession bullshit. We've Maxi upfront, get the ball to the flanks and pump crosses in a la Madrid with Cron

So many injuries and suspensions man.

Garay, Gabriel, Cillessen still struggling, Coquelin, Rodrigo all out. :(

If you play like you did against Getafe (watched that), you will be in for a long evening tomorrow.

I guess Mangala could be useful to deal with the physicality of Duvan Zapata.

Well Mich no surprises there. No Garay or Gabriel. Mangala playing.

The performances and results vs Mallorca and Getafe were massive red flags.

We've been in such shit form since the break.

How many chances do we allow in away games btw? It's mental.

We made Getafe look like some great attacking side ffs.

The death spiral has begun. Just like all of the other average managers who Lim appointed. Only Marcelino could keep this squad treading water. I cannot fathom that Lim doesn't understand the importance of the manager

Celades saying he's confident he's the man to turn this around, etc etc. When coaches starts to regurgitate these phrases its just a matter of time before they get fired. Please get Bordalas. I want to have a bastard team with rock solid defence and hard tackling midfield. Rembember when we'd used to line up Marchena-Albelda as doble pivote with Quique :strong: Now we have captain Potato falling over 20 times in midfield after yet another useless spin-around

Much needed win, though we were crap for 60 or so minutes, until the change to 4-3-3. I dont like that formation but 3 in the middle stopped Betis pinging the ball around. Guedes looked good as well. Still dont know what to think of Celades, sometimes he gets it just right, sometimes he gets it catastrophically wrong.

Maxi broke something in his foot and has to go under the knife. We seemingly get atleast one player out for weeks after each game
