By abdicating on playing through its midfield, Barcelona has abandoned what made the club so successful in the last ten years. Iniesta and all other midfielders look completely lost, like their only purpose on the ball is mindlessly pushing it forward. Without its midfield, Barça is a mediocre team that relies on its three forwards to win all matches. No tactical flexibility, just a mess. Luis Enrique is done at the club, end of story. Barça would do well to sack him now and out someone else until summer to salvage the season. Messi has hidden Barça’s flaws for too long, now it’s become so unsustainable that not even him can solve this season. Worse than Martino. Messi in 2014 was enduring one of the worst years of his career, this season he’s having one of his best and yet is unable to save Lucho. It’s another year of the best player of all time led to fucking waste because of the atrocious team and club management. And I might’ve been unfair with Neymar, after all he’s yet to have a proper coach after four years at the club. Verdict’s still out.
Real Madrid embraced its midfield to win, becoming more effective than Barça at being Barça, who’s disgracing everything that Cruyff built. This isn’t a jab at Real Madrid, but criticism of Barcelona abandoning its philosophy, which leads to this humiliation. I want Lucho out now so we can try and enjoy the final matches of the season, the chance to win the major trophies is gone.
As simple as that. ☺
