Full Time 1-0 (Barca)
Another disappointing performance and a terrible first half.
Messi scored his first penalty that Pique won just before half time, in the second half there was a lot more energy in attack especially when Suarez came on for Boateng and Coutinho came on for Dembélé we created a decent amount of chances from then on which either ended in a poor shot or great save from in my opinion the man of the match Jordi Masip and then at around the 85’ minute Coutinho linked up brilliantly with Suarez and won another penalty and this time Messi’s shot was saved by Masip from that point there was a few counter attacks but not much else.
We need to pick up form for our CL round of 16 first leg against Lyon in mid week!

Always serious, always showing vital in games, non ‘Tiki Taka’, tactical, is the first coach who breaked the world record with the most unbeaten games with 43 wins straight, criticized, and a boss. Many errors at his arrival but we don’t have to mention the past it’s about now and his future with Barcelona.
Congratulations boss with your extension until 2021!

FORÇA BARÇA! 🗣🔴🔵 @fcbfemeni
Masip (ex-Barça) teve grande atuação no Camp Nou hoje.
Apesar da partida apática do Barcelona, Masip fez excelentes defesas, incluindo um pequeno milagre num chute de primeira de Messi. O próprio Leo o parabenizou pela brilhante partida, inclusive defendendo seu pênalti.
I respect the referee very much, he entered the Camp Nou with a wheelchair and a dog by his side and stripes on his vest saying: “Sorry I’m blind.” Seriously my commentator literally said that statement and I totally agree with him. Doubting about a penalty what was definitely a penalty, giving Valladolid a free kick in the ‘78 minute while the Valladolid player is pushing Piqué but the referee thought Piqué pushed the Valladolid player etc. Just buy glasses please referee or just start a test if your turning blind, if so retire as a referee and never whistle in the Primera Divisíon again, if you still whistle again for us then give your dog the whistle.
FULL TIME 1-0 // Messi was playing poor but when Suarez came in it was going a little better and had a good partnership with each other. Suarez missed some great opportunities he needs to adapt his finish otherwise it’s biting on the teeth’s against Lyon. Suarez and Coutinho had a joy looking ‘Tiki Taka’ situation which ended up as a penalty and the most shocking thing was, the referee doubted if it even was a penalty, how blind are you then?! Anyway Messi was predictable with his shot, Messi needed to know that his former teammate Jordi Masip knows which side Messi’s favourite side is and that is right, if Messi was smart he must’ve chosen the left side or to trick Jordi the middle.
Our chances weren’t going well, Jordi Masip was definitely the man of the match without a doubt he stopped our shots and even with a close range like the ones of Suarez and Messi. The defense of González was perfect, the midfield fell back to the defense so it created a 7 man defense and conceded zero goals except the penalty but technically that isn’t a chance.
The attack from a Valladolid was also dangerous talking about Ünal and Sergi Guardiola, the midfield was creative and was outbuilding our midfield to be able to create spaces for Ünal and Guardiola. Unfortunately for them Piqué was our best defender and stopped them. They weren’t trying to attack on the widths which was necessary for them and the best side where they should’ve attacked at was the right side where Antoñito was playing, why? He was the player who was better than Martinez and most certainly the right side of Valladolid is their strongest side.
Jordi Masip was man of the match without a doubt, firstly he got defended by the defenders and Dembélé, Prince and Messi couldn’t pass until Suarez came on the field. The defense went weaker and Barcelona created many more chances than before, stopped by the legend of Valladolid Jordi Masip or they just missed. Anyway we learned that Prince doesn’t fit our style and isn’t good enough for us, don’t blame me but the staff from training weren’t so happy about Prince his results at training sessions. A bad signing I never say this so early but Prince Boateng must leave.
HALF TIME // Poor performance, Messi isn’t used to Prince his midfield actions he is used to Suarez. The right flank is open all the time and Dembélé is being too selfish if he has the ball, he tries to fight 5 defenders than preferring to pass to Alba.
Anyway good performance by the defense of Valladolid and Masip our 3rd goalkeeper VAAMMOOOSSS
MY LINEUP // Too many rotations? A bit but we it’s a team who is standing in 15th place and many players needs some rest. Prince isn’t getting some good results in training sessions. However, I believe he can still do some good things for us.
Not many midfielders we’re included in the squad list for today and I don’t want to see Rakitic and Vidal play so Roberto with Aleñá is a great option in the midfield with a lot of creativity and Rakitic in the back at the DM position. I expect many things from this modern and fresh midfield to register a good ‘Tiki Taka’ style.
Today we will be playing against the newly promoted team Real Valladolid for the second time. At the beginning of the season Valladolid was a strong team with 4 victories and 3 ties in 9 games, and they tied with us as well. A big performance by this team and ended that form in 7th place of the table. However, in this term of the season it backfired, they’re in 15th place at present and are 3 points above the relegation zone. It’s not going very well for Valladolid and aren’t showing strength or what they’re capable of, so I prefer a rotate team tonight not to blame Valladolid for a bad team but it’s better for us to be fit against Olymique Lyon in 3 days.
Real Valladolid are a defensive team and are named the 10th team with the the best defensive mentality. They’re not very bad underestimate them is pointless we still need to fight for the 3 points so at the end we don’t have to worry much anymore about teams getting higher than us in the table. On the other hand offensively is their weakness, they don’t have a good offensive mentality, so a good defense isn’t necessary either.
Hope we will have a enjoyable match tonight! VAAMMOOOSSS
IT’S MATCHDAY // Firstly I’m sorry for the late post i was going somewhere what was important. Anyway we’re playing against Real Valladolid tonight, a good opponent last meeting but now it’s a doubt if they’re actually fighting for the win as what they did last meeting. A great defensive mentality and a poor offensive mentality so I prefer a rotate day so the stars can get some rest for Lyon this week.
