Bellingham has benefit from Real missing real target man, Vini and Rodrygo play wide and he attacks from midfield to slot in box, he also has size to play in the air as well.

Bellingham is saving Real Madrid so much it's not even funny. Vinicius is horrible right now, Real Madrid fans can't stand him

Bellingham has the benefit of being a freaking stallion, don't think he'd do worse if Benzema was still around

Oh for sure, he’s still good but I don’t think he would get 13 goals like now

Jude also puts in a lot of work and isn't a diva. I guess same goes for Pedri and Haaland.

Yeah he’s been shit. I don’t think it’s the position either, I think it’s lack of Benzema leadership. The same way Leao misses Ibra imo.

Having those older heads that will tear into you when you don’t play properly for the team raises your level.

What's with Barca and their younger core getting injured all the time?

I mentioned it before, those kids clearly can play and start from very young age but in morden football and increasing number of matches, they need to be managed carefully, not running to the ground like this. Yamal is next …

I was looking at last minutes of Barça-Atleti game. Inaki Pena plays like prime Neuer. He was also good in Turkish league.

What a game Barcelona-Girona that was. I was worried in the first 30 minutes that Girona didn't make pressure in Barça area, but it came just before 15 minutes before HT.
I'm following this team a lot of this year, probably my fav of Spain along with Athletic de Bilbao.
I see Michel have some similar ideas to Limone in football possesion, in fact tactic is kind of similar except Girona plays with 1 alone striker and then 2 guys in the wings. Kind of 3-4-3 or 3-1-3-3. Sometimes the 2 fullbacks go almost to the wing so it's kind of play with 4 wingers and 1 killer striker up front...

Players i hope they don't leave next summer:
1. The 2 Ucranians are fucking class. I can't believe Girona payed so little for them, they can easily be sold to Premiership for 8 times more.
2. Aleix, this guy vision is crazy, he is playing a new role kind of Hakan for us, after being more a offensive midfielder and now playing regista.
3. Savinho, today decision making pretty bad but this guy is amazing, it's more close to Vinicius level than Rapiña right now. Should go to Brazil NT.
4. Gazzaniga. Amazing keeper they should keep

Blind is also amazing on defense but he is too old for big teams to be interesting. He is fucking perfect for this kind of formation as he is pretty good with the ball too.
Also very funny to see Eric Garcia (in Spain we call him Error Garcia *Error means mistake) to be much better than Kounde in that exact position.

Barcelona has some selfish and egocentric players like Cancelo or Joao Felix, and i love the fact that Inter or Girona don't have that kind of players. We used to had a lot back then. Thank you Limone.

don't worry, Girona will not fall apart next season, they're part of City Group clubs

That’s right. I forgot Girona is basically a feeder for City. I watched the second half today against Barca and I was impressed. Their style does remind me a bit of Inter but with its own Spanish flair and of course a different formation.

I really wouldn’t be surprised if they hold on for top 4.

But City group is not injecting the same money for Manchester than to Girona. Most expensive player was Dovbyk at 8millions(same amount we paid for Arna :'( )

Remember last summer they sold Taty Castellanos to Lazio, he was the max scorer for them i believe.

I don't like or care for Girona but to see them beat Barca like they just did... I salute them. Nice to see a little upheaval at the top of La Liga.

Barca really struggling atm, Girona probably wins their home game vs Alaves on Monday and will be +9pts. Nothing dramatic, this is still reachable, but 8 goals conceded in 3 matches. Xavi can't afford any more mistakes.
