 :blush:

To be honest I don't think we could've held on the top spot the way we were playing. Fortunately Real Madrid have been as unreliable as us, but with Suárez down I wasn't fancying our chances - he and Messi have been carrying the team all these months.

how/what system does this guy play then?
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sacking your manager when he has you top of the league. :lol: :lol: Only Barca.

Tbf this is our worst season record-wise since the last Rijkaard season. Real Madrid/Atlético are just sucking a teeny bit more.

Should have been done in the summer though, now it will only cause more upheaval. I think Setién is probably a better manager than Xavi, but Xavi's presence would probably calm things down and he'd have the respect of the dressing room (which is imho Zidane's best quality at Real Madrid, that he's Zinedine f***ing Zidane).

Also qualified out of a tough CL group easily

Either sack him before the season or in summer.

Seems weird to sack mid-way through season.

Impressive :lol:

Not sure what you're getting at. Just stating that as of now, we're still in every major competition we were in at the start of the season and we're sitting where we were expected to be in the league, maybe even higher. A lot of pundits predicted 6th place.
Love how low expectations you've got :lol: Being behind Chelsea, with a completely inexperienced manager that sold their star player whilst having a transfer ban is good now, and even above expectations after what you spent in the summer? Great :thup:

He follows Cruyff (and Bielsa to a point), so either a 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 - he played a 3-4-3 mostly when at Betis - but if they need to seriously press then its a 3-4-1-2 - with this Barca team being a bit slow, I'd be surprised if the doesn't go with a 3-4-3 - ala us with Rafa - with the 2 either side of the forward tucked in - this should benefit both Messi and Griezmann - shame they don't have Countinho right now, could have benefitted a lot

Its possession based football with a cutting edge - not passing for the sake of passing  - with better players, he should be able to implement this quite well

And he is the biggest fan of Messi on the planet  :lol:

I like him, I just think he comes at the very worst moment, midway into the season, with a restless dressing room (and he doesn't have the resume to command instant respect), and if the season unravels he won't get a chance.

Chelsea started really well and Abraham is having a breakout year. Can't hold that against them. Our star player has been injured all year, and a 20+ a year striker was sold. According to everyone on here we have a s****, inexperienced manager also. We've also played Chelsea 3 times in 3 different competitions and won all 3, scoring 8 and conceding once? We'll catch Chelsea.

What about Spurs? Based on the opinion on here, far better coach than us, similar net spend to us in the Summer? Arsenal?

I don't have low expectations, I have realistic ones. Expected to be in a fight for 4th which is what is happening. I'm also optimistic mind. We have the youngest squad in the league and we'll be adding real quality to it in the Summer and hopefully in January.

And Real Madrid. Capello sacked after winning their first league title in four years, didn’t win it good enough.

If he leaves I wonder if we’d go back in for him?

Who am I kidding? Bruce isn’t getting sacked or leaving.

Way behind Celtic in the league and got knocked out of the cup by Hearts.
The pressure on him to win the League next season will be huge as it will be Celtic’s 10th title in a row. Ranger just don’t have the players or budget to compete with them.

I'm fairly certain he'll be all too aware of how Rafa was treated.

I'm not sure that's completely true, Steven Davis, Defoe, Morelos, Hagi will be on as much or more than any Celtic players I'd imagine
