    Additional info has since come out that Atletico effectively pushed the player to make the announcement in this manner because apparently he was, incredibly, working on a Decision 2.0 type documentary like the one he just made last summer. Club learned of it and insisted he just come out and announce he intends to leave

    As for Barcelona, it's merely speculation at this point

    He needs a haircut before he does anything. He looks like Worzel Gummidge.

    Anyone watching the Copa? Could only find it on Eleven Sports Portugal and didn't see first half so don't know score.

    Oooh was going to enjoy the Final Thread after this but just seen Lenny got offered job.

    Barca getting humped 2 0.

    Crazy last 5 minutes there. Barca could probably have done without any more games this season after Liverpool. Well done Valencia!

    I went to the kitchen to top up my Treble Treble champagne and I just heard ooohhh Messi Messi Messi! Didn't even see a replay cause of * buffering :56:

    Oooft Barca messed up again.

    Valencia's season has been extraordinary. I'm sure they were in the relegation zone and didn't look like leaving it at one time. Did Neville not go there a couple years ago when they were grasping at straws, 4th biggest budget in La Liga but something was wrong and they couldn't figure it out. Remarkable turnaround.

    I wasn’t fully concentrating but it looked like Valencia missed about 3 open goals with Ter Stephen up the park :giggle1:

    Surely need to get rid of Valverde now.

    I know they ran away with the league, but they really did * the bed in other competitions tbh.

    Especially when they seemed to be desperate for the CL.

    They can’t wait the last few years of Messi with him...

    Need to go and get an attacking coach and get Coutinho and Dembele firing.

    I think Barca should approach Liverpool for Klopp.

    Would be an outstanding Barca manager.

    Aye Valverde is definitely getting sacked. Apparently it went like this according to the press. Bartomeu made his mind up after the Anfield game, offered the job to another La Liga manager (can't mind who but said no they already have a great manager) then Messi and Suarez said give Val another season but with the caveat that if he fails to take home the Copa then he can gtf so now Koeman is the rumoured new favourite backed by Messi.

    Don't know a lot about Koeman but find it difficult to believe he's as good as the folk who regard that job as the pinnacle in world football. There can't be many who'd turn it down once the vacancy was clear.

    Through all that cloud it's safe to say Valverde will not be Barca coach next season.

    Agree they have some amount of attacking talent, but Valverde hasn’t a clue how to use it. He was a cracking coach at Bilbao, but Barca looks too much of a reach for him.

    If they did sign both De Ligt and Griezmann that would make a significant difference.

    They need to get rid of players who although good are ultimately overwhelmed, as is, as Gyp said. Valverde.

    Just seen Martinez is on a 4 man short list, surely they have to try and get Allegri.
