Not rubbish, per se, but..



Gremio 0-0 Internacional. The first 'Grenal' derby in the Copa Libertadores ended with no goals but EIGHT red cards following this 'brawl'. Lots of pushing, shoving, nearly-punching and almost-kicking.

I know there's a part within Barcelona fandom who call themselves Cruyffistas and want Valverde out of the club because he isn't a hispter and doesn't play like 2011 Barca. They consider him boring. A lot of people on Twitter from this section last nigh were going mad until Messi scored the first goal. Despite the win they were more worried Barca not possessing the ball as much as they do.
I really don't understand them who want Barca to play like Betis played today. Our core is made up of players who are Messi (31), Suarez (31), Rakitic (31), Busquets (30), Pique (31). They simply cannot afford to press like mad dogs and be work horses on the pitch if the team is eyeing for the treble. At least two or three of them will pull a hamstring or muscle injury and the rest will be fully exhausted. I firmly believe the players are behind Valverde and like him so much because despite the playing time, Valverde has created a game plan according to the player's age. Players are okay with not being in possession of the ball but being decisive with the chances they get. Which is what happened last night. Not a single player is complaining about Valverde (unlike Enrique's last season where Iniesta and Busquets openly criticised about Enrique's tactics and later he somehow managed to salvage the season by going for 3313).
