I think the reason for our inconsistent form this past 2 years has a more fundamental reason...I believe it's VG's system. This all out attacking system which he is employing only works when the team is playing well and when the confidence is high. If we lack those 2 things, we fall apart...badly. There is no insurance policy in this system...defensively, players don't back each other up...often our defenders are left in one on one situations. If they are in good form, it's OK but otherwise we will concede lots of goals, as we have this season. We have to learn from Man Utd (God forgive)...whether they are playing well or not, they still get results...if they play badly they get a 0-0 draw or win 1-0...if they play well they win 4-0 or 5-1. Barca cannot do that. Luckily, Spanish teams in general are all like that that is why we are still in the title race up to now...if Barca were to be in England or Italy, we would be in 5th or 6th place. Defensive organisation and cover from midfield is what we lack. Too much flair...no steel.
