Opinion – Barcelona The opinion of David Sanchez
The Supercopa de Espana last showed what this Barcelona crew in point of fact is. If Marc-Andre ter Stegen is human in any case and no longer the goalkeeper we noticed within the semi-final then they are a undeniable and uninteresting crew with out the angle that are supposed to cross with their favourites tag. It is a unhappy factor this is summed up by way of substitutions, with Miralem Pjanic, Martin Braithwaite, Trincao and Oscar Mingueza. That is what this crew is, not anything extra.
There may be additionally Ronald Koeman‘s cowardly and crappy making plans, as a lot in his crew variety as together with his techniques. However particularly together with his substitutions. He made ultra-defensive adjustments to keep the lead that they have been incapable of holding. Koeman is the principle perpetrator for this Supercopa failing.
Then there is Lionel Messi. There is no obtrusive excuse for his purple card, however, if I put myself in his sneakers, surrounded by way of such a lot mediocrity and laziness, I would more than likely lose the plot and get despatched off like he did.
Congratulations to Athletic Membership and prayers to Barcelona and their enthusiasts. The avid gamers will have to apologise for making the supporters embarrassed and ashamed in their crew all over again.
