There is no crime or fault in continuing on a legacy provided it is working and still fits in into the scheme of things but what happens when that legacy is warped and it’s no longer in tune with the current sequence of events? The above painted scenario is the story of Tito Vilanova, the head coach of F.C Barcelona who is hell-bent in continuing on a warped, egocentric-laden legacy left behind by his former boss, Pep Guardiola. I thought Tito was a well trained coach, may be I was wrong. Pep may be lucky no doubt to have experimented with a Barcelona team that possesses less defensive potentials than its many rivals during his time and still managed 14 trophies within 4 years. That does not guarantee the same episode for a Tito Vilanova!
I have written to that effect on Pep, Tito must quit acting like a rookie, to me he looks like a coward, I still maintained that we have good players that can take us to the Promised Land, but what happens when we have a coach who is using the wrong players in the wrong positions (like Mascherano in the defense, sometimes a Song at the same defense, these are players that are naturally mid-fielders and not jelling at the defensive; using a David Villa as a supporting striker and using a misfiring Sanchez as a striker, what kind of shoddy arrangements is all that) and still using players that have lost their place in our present squad. I am talking of no other player than Alexis Sánchez, a player that brings pain into the hearts of millions of Barca’s fans. Tito’s lack of substituting the right players for the wrong ones at the right time and bringing in wrong players for no just cause is another trend of Pep’s legacy he is trailing!
I see no reason why we (Barcelona) could not continue on our winning streak in the first League El Clásico game we had on 7th October, 2012. I think Tito needs to explain why a David Villa and a Song have to sit out an entire game (the El Clásico) we needed so much while our ‘weakest link,’ Alexis Sanchez was brought in at a time we needed to seal our victory by bringing in a David Villa. I am beginning to see the same mistake of Pep Guardiola being repeated here! If by January, that clown called Sanchez (worst player in F.C Barcelona’s history to ever put on No 9 jersey) is not sold off to buy good defensive players we desperately need now, I cannot guarantee any trophy for Barcelona (mark my words)!
