Apparently, we're feeling confident -- or at least hopeful. Yesterday Renato asked the question: do you think that FC Barcelona can pull off the unthinkable and overturn a four-goal deficit to win the Supercopa de España? The results -- so far -- have been resoundingly in the Blaugrana's favour:
Results (accurate at time of publish):
That's nearly three-quarters of you who think that Barcelona can pull this off -- and as a Cule who was so confident of his side's UEFA Champions League chances last season that he booked a hotel for the final in Berlin about 10 months before the match, I'm pleased to see it. Maybe my optimism from last season is paying off?
In all seriousness, our faith in the team is not entirely blind; if any team can pull this off, it's Luis Enrique's Barcelona. We scored four goals or more in a plethora of matches last season, including a match against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames. We've beaten AC Milan 4-0 at the Camp Nou before; heck, we put five unanswered goals past Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in 2011. We've seen Lionel Messi score five goals on his own against Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages before; if that doesn't get you believing that anything is possible, then nothing will.
Even if our chances of making history are slim, isn't it better to... #DR5AM?
