Quick Rant- For those of you who haven’t heard, El Classico yielded a surprise result. Barcelona 1(Alexis) Real Madrid 2 (Ozil and Ronaldo) at the Nou Camp
The media is always on about the greatness of Messi and Barcelona. Two back to back losses and the ever quick sport journalists are writing about the downfall of the team and the player.
All accolades of past games already forgotten. The fact the Leo has scored 41 la liga goals hasn’t even been mentioned. All anyone wants to talk about is the fact that he failed to make a shot on target during the match and managed one shot off target in the 90 mins played.
El Classico— It seems to not matter that in the last 8 matches in 9 meetings Barcelona have violated Real Madrid in the worst ways possible and repeatedly. One bad match and all are boding ill on the team.
Shouldn’t we rather be looking to Pep? Was he so complacent that he didn’t work around his team to try and see what he could do to make sure los blancos would not win? Obviously the special one realized doing the same thing over and over was a recipe for constant defeat and decided to mix it up. I’ve never seen a more calm display by Madrid against their greatest rivals- and they managed to keep all their players on the pitch- what a feat!
But the moral of the story is, every team has a bad game. So do great players. Let us not be so fickle as to count any team out after a bad session of play!
