The entirety of the Sociedad attack came through Kubo in that game. Once Garcia and Kroos began to mark him tighter in the 2nd half, along with limiting his service, Sociedad produced just about nothing of substance. I will also say that, while I didn't tend to watch him defensively during the game, he could've done more in helping close down Garcia on the cross that led to the winning goal for Madrid, although the criticism on that one certainly lies harder on Le Normand and Traore for that one.

Not ready for Barca right now as there was too many changes. We should be next year.

Cancelo is like a Lukaku. He needs his cuddling and his baby milk bottle from Xavi and there won't be any dramas or mood swings. Right now he fits Barca like Mbappe would fit in Joselu's position haha.

Seriously?


Camp Nou is being renovated from a massive construction project and so they’ll be playing at Montjuic until 2024

Olympic stadium is actually a lovely looking stadium but dated for football. The running track around the pitch has killed the vibe for many clues (So far away from pitch) and so initially there was a lack of attendance but Xavi bus has got fans excited to show up anyway. I like it there but it’s a bit isolated in the city and public transportation (i.e. metro) simply doesn’t get close enough. The other part is fans leaving early to make the hike back down to Placa Espanya to get public transport

It’s a bandaid until construction is completed but less than ideal (especially in terms of revenue)

Morata put Atletico ahead in the 3rd minute, but we know how the Real match ends.

Bellingham is pissed off he didn't end up as the hero of the game again.

Morata has 5 league goals in 5 games and one of those he played just for 25 minutes and he only played the full 90 once :lol:

Surprising then, Camp Nou is an iconic European if not global venue and its renovation has been widely covered in media

Maybe in Barcelona related media or in the bubble that's called "world football media" that only concentrates on like 6 clubs from 2 countries.
Not that I really care for media, check websites or would seek such information out of the blue, but I trust that if I asked 1,000 people in the streets maybe 5 would have known that.

Don't get upset about it. Most of the world didn't know the Bernabeu was getting renovated either.

You misunderstood the tone of my post, wasn’t upset - just a surprise

Yeah was just playing there.

New age NBA fans think everyone knows their star players and team updates but truth is 90% of the world can't even recognize who Lebron James is.
Same thing applies with football teams.

It's becoming a bubble and people who aren't in it, don't really follow or know much. In previous times this was shared from mainstream media and in open tv channels, now everyone needs subscriptions and to be following stuff and people. So no one bothers in the grand scale.
