    That is powerful stuff. Also sounds good for the development opportunities for youngsters from the region as it's a huge club that'll offer them everything the best can with that extra bit of pride you can't buy.

    Griezmann subbed off before the hour mark and again contributes nothing..

    He's probably widely regarded as in the top 5 footballers about but for me he's nowhere near it..

    Looks out his depth and a very very overrated player for how he's seen. Good player yes....but he's miles off what Barca need..

    Yet miles ahead of Dembele.

    Barcelona are carrying passengers last couple years and need to be a bit more ruthless with what they want from a player, and less romantic.

    Atlético v Barca just has nil nil written all over it. Not for one minute did I think this would be a goal fest. Always the case.

    The rumours of Marcelo Gallardo to Barca just won’t go away.

    I just think the way Barca play doesn't suit him and doubt they'll ever change. He actually played quite well the last time I saw them play, and he scored. Looked maybe like he was adapting, but I didn't see this game.

    I was just about to post why it will be so difficult for Greizmann at Barca because he's not world class in the way Neymar is and Messi's body language generally says that.

    But that was a finish Oli would be proud of.

    Dunno why but that vid has been removed, I'm guessing it's this?



    You have to do something very special for someone as passionate about the game and his team as Simeone to applaud a late goal winner.

    Good article by Sid Lowe about that goal and maybe why Simeone acknowledged it so:

    https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...get-on-the-wrong-side-of-lionel-messis-genius

    I like this
    :giggle1:

    Greizmann looks like he's getting into it here although Mallorca is a bit of a training game he's still linking up in the kind of way Messi likes. It's good to see cause the difference between the normal and excellent players is the ability to adjust to any style of play especially if it's attacking.

    I don't know what's more amazing, his genius or the fact it never stops making us laugh with incredulity.

    Edit: Wow, just seen what Gyp posted about, that is taking the absolute pish. No way was it an attempt at a pass, there was no one making a run when he looked behind to see the position.

    Oh ffs Greizmann that was criminal, what a beautiful run from De Jong and the dummy glance was pure class, he's got to be finishing that.

    Don't understand why Barca are quite willing to pay over £100m on merely promising young talent like Dembele but don't use even half that on solid dependable defenders? They've got the best player ever to grace a pitch and one of the hardest grafters in Suarez so why the fixation on attacking players?
