Very impressive turn around season by Barca to finish 2nd. They were an absolute dumpster fire before Xavi took over.
I would say till before the winter signings. They signed so many new players that turned things around
Mainly it was Pedri getting healthy for a while
No, signing 3 attackers alomg with Dembele getting fit was much more important than pedri being healthy
nah they're back to being bad after Pedri got hurt again
Impressive considering the lack of preseason and need for immediate results. Our attack and defense have both been much more organized since he came.
A long way to go to get where we want to be, but I'm excited about next season
At the start of the season i genuinely thought we wouldn't qualify for the CL but thank god those winter transfers and Xavi saved our asses.
Xavi still needs to sort some things out but i am hopeful for the future.
Not bad for having no preseason
Congrats Barca for almost winning the league after Xavis arrival
The least insecure Madrid fan.
They won 0-4, it’s better than the league for most of the fans here
Impressive considering first half of the season, less impressive considering Real was also much better first half of the season.
And we took our foot off the gas
It’s important to note that we have dropped off in form since January and have also taken our foot off the gas long ago. Also the other teams have also dropped off significantly like Sevilla who were breathing down our necks for most of the season. Barca made so many winter signings that rejuvenated their squad. When everyone began to drop as the season progressed, the new signings gave Barca new life.
Have you though? Since the start of January you have have 11-2-2 in the league until winning it. That's about in line with your first half results, no?
