The only explanation is that Dani Alves is an android. His work rate at his age is immense.
Seriously, he's playing better than 6 years ago, what the fuck?
It’s that Latino temperament
Lol. Who said this?
Jim Beglin said that infamous quote after Di Maria was sent off for PSG in the champions league this season.
It was last season. Second leg of the semi.
You right my bad lol
Didn't he also call Etihad, Emptyhad this season😂😂 man sure has his moments
How’d he keep his job after that?
Because this isn’t the united states? It’s a stupid thing to say but he apologized. Should he really lose his job because he said something stupid once?
I dont think they'd even get fired for that here as there's a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that'll be a home run
There’s stupid and then there’s xenophobic. I think someone should get fired for being xenophobic on life television
Me when my Puerto Rican and Cuban girlfriend has two drinks and starts looking at me like she wants to gut me cause she remembered I dated other girls before her
He actually wants to play for you guys. That's the difference
Probably because hes more motivated. The second he left Barcelona he didn't care much about football and you could see it in his play, even when he played for PSG and Juventus.
Bruh at Juve he was godlike, best rb in the world probably, remember that volley vs Monaco in the cl semifinal?
Yeah CL were the only games he cared about. In League he literally played like shit.
After seeing some closeups during the match I think he might be on coke
Always hope I’m wrong but in sports I’ve come to assume that when things seems to be to good to be true it’s PEDs.
yeah for sure but if one player is on PEDs it's very very likely they're all on PEDs so it kinda cancels out
"Your roided up guy against my roided up guy"
My point of reference on this is a friend that was a biathlete. Cross country skiing events were famous for doping but she refused to dope. She was 1-2 spots away from making the Olympics, which was her dream. There were definitely people on the team that doped.
TLDR - Surely not everyone was kung fu fighting
That’s an individual sport so not sure how comparable it is to a highly organized team sport like football.
People that cheat to get ahead do so at the expense of people who don’t cheat. In a team sport, the cheater gets a roster spot that he couldn’t have gotten on his own and so someone has to get cut.
oh i do believe you on that, but honestly, like the players we're watching and reading about here most of the time, most likely those are the ones who do make the olympics and do everything to get there all the way
I'm not saying everybody out there is definitely 100% dirty but it wouldn't surprise me for a minute if it came out (which it won't, of course).
biathlon is an insanely exhausting sport but compared to football it's just not a billion dollar industry and it isn't protected as much reputation wise. the pressure on the players and the clubs and the organizations is insane.
Its like case with Lance Armstrong, the guy was on Peds but so were all of his competitors yet he was the one getting flak.
In the case of Lance Armstrong, he didn't just get flak because of his doping, he was disgraced for the way he did it. He literally ruined other people's lives to keep it a secret.
The people he competed against also were all doping and being silent about it so it evens out.
The comment you responded to is literally explaining how it doesn't even out though lol
But but hes bRaZiLiAn....they love to pArTy
After a shitty pass by Alves, Iniesta made a miracle at Stamford Bridge, and after a... shittier pass Pedri now does the same. I shudder to think about how he'll keep playing like nothing happened 20 years from now.
don't know if i'd call it shitty .. more a beautiful mess
It was a Messi pass vs chelsea
With my flair, I've my own opinions about him. But with that aside, has he overtaken Cafu as the best Brazilian RB?
Best ~~brazilian~~ RB ever
Don't forget about Carlos Alberto Torres, he is 100% in this discussion, unless you mean "modern era" players only
As a club player, absolutely. Internationally, Cafu is way ahead
I don't think that is even worth the discussion
Literally the opposite of Jordi Alba.
Fati injured again :(
no contact injury too…
I think his career is done at this point, atleast whatever levels he could've reached is a thing of the oast. All those knee surgeries and now the psychological effects of repeated injuries off the back of a long term injury is too much for any footballer to handle
Lowkey getting r9 vibes. <\3
I really hope that isn’t the case at all
I don't know why you're getting downvoted. I think it's pretty clear that his body simply isn't up for it. That obviously isn't his fault, but it's the reality none the less.
His career so far has pretty much been a cycle of; 1 - get a few games where he plays well and scores a few goals. 2 - get a long term injury that keeps him out for a few months. 3 - Finally return from injury after months and then repeat at step 1 again....
If he's already having these problems now at age 19, then just imagine how it's gonna be when he gets older... I have a hard time seeing him ever complete a full 45+ game season as a starter without getting injured. That doesn't mean he can't have a good impressive career in his own right, but the dream that he can become this big world beater on the same level of Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappé, Neymar etc is gone...
Kinda weird saying his career is over when he is just a teenager
I feel the same way. It’s so fucking sad
Don't say that, i remember even messi was injury prone in his teenage years, anything can happen. Fati seems to have a good work ethic just wish him for the best
There’s nothing wrong with Ansu psychologically, the kid scores in the first game after he’s been out for months.
You can't know that, many players report about psychological problems after an injury - losing confidence in their bodies, playing safer because they are afraid, etc. Scoring a goal doesn't mean shit in that regard.
The damage is not so obvious. Talented players can often return from injury at their normal level.
Barca flairs couldn’t handle such a comment.
Sadly, the amount of injuries the kid has had is dangerous for a career. I’m all too familiar with situations like his. Disappointing
What a braindead take
Not brain dead when you look at players like Van Basten or R9…
39 year old assisting a 19 year old with a bicycle kick
Damn, Pedri wasn't even born when Alves went to Sevilla
I wonder what the world record is for the biggest age gap between two players assisting-scoring in professional football.
whoever's been on kazuyoshi miura's team the last couple years probably holds the record
Don't they have a striker who's like 50?
That would be the guy he is talking about yes.
Oh lmao I thought I was the team name
Just Barca things
Wtf is happening with reddit?
Not enough American goals to pay for the servers
Dest just got subbed in he'll rescue reddit
Dest gonna do them a solid in a couple minutes.
Yea servers are fucked
Ah nice, it's not just my internet
Pedri broke Reddit!
Reddit is like in the top 20 most used websites in the world I think, and yet they still manage to have absolutely dogshit reliability. Crashes are basically par for the course
Pedri goal broke the servers
The two goals crashed reddit. For a little bit I thought everyone just abandoned the match thread in the barca sub.
Not in Xavi's plans at the moment
It's down a bit :(
Apollo not working for me but the official Reddit app is.
Who knew the best replacement for Dani Alves would end up being Dani Alves
He was literally terrible yesterday
He has incredible PR
At which point do we start questioning whether it's the individual skill of the players or the system? We keep saying this about literally every player that we put in our defense. Alba? Shit. Alves? Shit. Dest? Shit. Roberto? Shit. Piqué? Shit. Lenglet? Shit. Mingueza? Shit. All of those players can't be shit on an individual level.
As a madrid fan, I love this & hope he keeps having great PR
U not wrong
He hasnt played in so long. Since hes been back hes been our best player these two games
what a pass from dani
It really appears to be. He went for an overhead but changed his mind mid-jump & crossed it beautifully.
What is this? Captain Tsubasa??
Oh, hundred percent.
It literally was though
Why chase a 15 year old who does bicycle kick when 38 year old Dani Alves does that
The golden boy!
And that overhead pass from Dani Alves was amazing.
One of the best assists in a while for sure
Pedri reminds me of Iniesta. So many similarities.
Reddit is the most poorly maintained social media site
First hazard then pedri. The football community is unbeaten
Fati injury ruined my mood
Holy shit Dani Alves. What a legend. Greatest fullback of all time.
Makes you think if Alves really needed to leave a few years back
He didn’t. They were being bitches about him
They should have given him what he wanted, he would have never left.
Goal broke reddit, needs more awards
Pulisic hasn't scored in a while.
Real iniesta regen, 90+3 and equalizer goal
What a fucking pass from Dani alves
Pedri broke reddit
Absolute gem my boy
What an assist. Let's gooo
Can someone get a streamable mirror? This one has ads and is not friendly to iMessage
THE FUCKING EXTRA TIME MAN
Barca is getting saved by a child and a grandpa wtf
Barca is like the guy who takes hit after hit but always stands up again.
Nah Pulisic goes down if someone runs quickly
What an assist by DANI ALVES!!!!
Goal so good it crashed Reddit
Pedri loves ExtraTime !!!! :P
Alves bicycle kick assist, insane
And some said that Dani is done
the golden boy !!!!
It's PEDRIIIIIIIIIII and Bilbao fans cover their eyes in horror!!
What a play from Dani Alves
What an assist lol
wow.. onlyy 2 awards
imagine dest trying that
He would miss the ball
People talk about Mbappe and Haaland, but this kid flies under the radar so much. He will be in that category in a year or two as the most sort after youngster in the world. He's so fucking good, fuck!
Nothing short of a miracle Barca is still in this game. Athletic are miles ahead both structurally and in intensity.
That’s very harsh
The only one from Barca who looks like he belongs on the pitch is Pedri.
But true. Barca are doing really poorly today. They just can't play out of pressure...
Lucky af,glad it didnt matter in the end.
Pride in defeat ♥
That man has the funniest voice ever
Assist so great reddit went down in respect
Something bad is abt to happen to me
im new to football but why are they celebrating a draw
