Come on Pirlo. I'm talking to a Barca supporter right now, and he's saying the last Liga was not won by RM, it was lost by Barca. How about some credit? RM made 100 points!
he's probably refering to that last season crucial classico in May or April... Barca still don't take their top opponents seriously. they still think Real Madrid = Real Sociedad! Where the f*ck is Dani Alves today? David Villa in 2nd half?
Alves was supposed to start but was replaced last minute because apparently he injured himself during warm up.
Barcelona was playing with 10, I think their options were limited.
limited? Tito replaced Alexis with a defender to avoid a big defeat. it was like he gave up with the least defeat possible. in 2nd half, Barcelona were so close to make it 2-2 and win, but Tito was still too scared to try. He could have used Villa instead of Song the shit (aka Tello). I think was wise to accept the defeat after the first 30 minutes show, but wasn't wise to keep it like that in last 20 minutes. should have switched his tactic IMO. that what Mourinho would have done, and almost always do, which explains why he's "The One!"
I think you're asking too much.
Madrid had many chances, Tito must have been worried. Playing with 10 men they could've won, which IMO was thanks to the adjustments he made. I mean, at minute 28, after the red card I thought this was going to be a walk in the park, but it wasn't.
If Pedro scores that goal in which Iker made a great save... who knows if RM could've come back to tie the global. Barcelona has shown that, like Spain, doesn't need a 9 to score.
Maybe you are right, but I think Barcelona played well with 10 men.
Maybe instead of asking Tito more, you can ask Mascherano and Pique to be more attent at the defense.
