While late second half for historic negative records. And that's the only reason why I care so little about Bayern right now and so on until February 2016. For me season starts after New Year. They can do whatever they want in these 4 months, even end the first half on the 2nd or 3rd place, but in late January, i.e. February expectations are on maximum.

We've been great in the CL as well with Pep in the first halfs. We had that 1-3 victory at City in 2013 where we absolutely toyed with them and the european press was already crowning us as repeat champions. And last year we won 1-7 in Rome.

It's the second half where everything goes awry and even the likes of Wolfsburg are beating us 4-1.

I continue to be extremely worried by his over reliance on Alonso, something that doesn't seem at all like a temporary move but rather a key feature of his team planning.

I have been critical of him, but one thing Pep seems to have finally learned from is to drop his constant tactical tinkering. The Xabi issue aside, there are no weird formations or players playing in unfamiliar roles this year. It's a straight 4-3-3/4-4-2 most of the time. Long may it continue!

Xabi has also played really well so as long as he rotates every match or so, I'm fine. In the last matches, Pep has come to his senses and played traditional, effective and good football. A high-five for him

Yeah, I kinda disagree on the Xabi thing. He may play well now but he is also likely to get worn down very easily. And more importantly, I am not sure he has the legs to play DM against Real and Barca, no matter how silky smooth he looks on the ball. But whatever, hopefully Javi is fully healthy by then.

Hopefully he changes his mind on that just like he has changed his mind this season on Lahm, the striker position, the wingers etc.

Rafinha as LB or CB and Alaba as CB are not unfamiliar roles? I respectfully disagree! :P :D
Thanks for nothing, :pep: !!

The team is playing very well and I can see Pep's philosophy working. We need to stay healthy and I think we will be dominant even against the top teams late in the year. Last year we had way too many injuries.

I don't know. Lahm on the left and Rafinha on his usual role makes more sense. I didn't like little Rafa on the far left of defense one bit.

I severely disagree with that statement and I am actually schocked that someone would make that statement! He was dead on his legs after 60 minutes at the Camp Nou, he fell over while trying to run after the ball about 2-3 times for goodness' sake, and was one of the key reasons why the team by and large got overstretched, players were running all over the place to compensate for him.

Alonso will always be a good tackler if a player is close to his space, but he has no ability at all to chase players at this point, and it's why he was incredibly tired.
