    I get that's it's all about training /sharpening reactions, improving vision and range of passing, bolstering natural technique etc until I becomes ingrained - but this is mostly about arming players with the tools so as to optimize the possible/capable reactions in each and every situation. Like sharpening a boxer to automatically block every punch or swing every time the opponent shows a mm of chin. You are taking a creative player and optimizing his skills so he can do the most he can with his creativity, no?

    On the Tuchel front, apparently Southampton are going to try to attract him.

    And going the other way, Dortmund want Favre (despite the fact his last spell in Germany was a disaster)

    In the Dutch and Barca style, they drill the defense and give the players the freedom in the final third only.

    Also, Favre's last spell wasn't a disaster. He actually did well with Gladbach, but got off to a very poor start to his 3rd or 4th season and decided to resign out of respect for the club. Favre is a great manager. I actually just realized he was managing Nice a couple days ago and it made total sense.

    I think I said it because I love this Nice and don't want him to leave

    Nice have said they aren't letting go of Favre. I've read rumors of Paulo Sousa.

    Pep: "When times are tough, there are Presidents that call the newspapers, and others that are close to the team, like Laporta.

    Nuñism call Mundodeportivo (grup Godó) for media protection and in exchange they get confidential info about the club.

    Cruyffism piss on those media fuckers

    Can't understand how Barcelona aren't in for Fabinho. Have been saying it since before last season.

    Yeah, because he's better as a midfielder and he plays in a Busquets kind of role.

    Mainly because our club is ruled by donkeys. Fabinho + Ceballos release clause are two obvious signings they are going to let pass.

    Dani Ceballos is very good. And rejected Real Madrid previously as well.

    And Fabinho plays well as a DM sure but he is also fantastic at RB. I can't think of a better player to provide them that balance with both fullbacks.

    Apparently the board wanted to sell Iniesta but Valverde stepped in. So that's why Iniesta ignored Bartomeu after CDR final. I'm sick of this shit, unbelievable.

    Santos is taking Barcelona to court for negotiating with Lucas Lima without permission. Yes, this is what we have become.
