After a very disappointing night in Munich surely Cules have been asking questions , which is fine because it only shows people care !
In my opinion Barcelona are still the best team in the world however they are coming up short at the moment in the big big games vs European giants because of tactics. Vs Bayern they didn't out play us IMO but tactically they did.
Bayern had a plan one which Real Madrid use and very successfully ( even if It kills me to say it ) it was nothing new.
sit deep>> make the middle of the pitch very small >> stop Messi >> foul when needed >> counter very quickly >> clinical finishing !
I don't think we need major changes or personnel but its obvious we need tweaks ! We need a game plan to beat the teams that do this to us, it's a simple as that. And the other night I believe we looked lost and ran quickly out of ideas to get through the wall bayern put up. So many times even Gomez was behind the ball , all players chasing like dogs, this makes it extremely hard for us to make space, however all our front three came to the ball and never tried to get behind them, which would obviously stretch the pitch, but it was like we thought we would just keep the ball. We all know the pattern, Pass to pedro /alexis, wiggle hips pass back ! And back to piqué ! Something must be done its true ! I know our defence ain't too good ATM but jheez we couldn't even get a good chance !
People commenting and say tiki taka is over , however last night wasn't tiki taka, the passing was slow lethargic and without a purpose! We simply didn't shift there back line enough !
however I think things will change in the summer , do you ?
whats everyone's view, what players are realistic that should come in !
i think we should buy
Mats hummels without doubt !
neymar obvs is on his way !
a GK ( however barca have stated they will only sell valdes this summer if a replacement has already been bought )
and I also think a central striker , who's experienced , quite tall and will come on and score a few, a Larsson esc signing !
your thoughts ?
