Managing Madrid Podcast: Disaster in Cataluña

There’s just no way to sugarcoat this one, folks. It’s a complete disaster for Real Madrid, as they’ve lost 5-1 to Barcelona in the Camp Nou. Gabe and Om work to pick up the pieces of the Lopetegui era.

Some topics:

  • The first half disaster--is it tactical, motivational, or both?
  • Lopetegui’s situational cowardice.
  • Critical abandonment of the press-and-posess formula for milquetoast crap.
  • Can anyone be salvaged from this performance?
  • What does the immediate future look for this Real Madrid side?
  • What happened inn the second half, when Madrid looked to counter-punch?
  • Madrid’s inability to bury chances as the dominating narrative of the era.
  • Where to place blame--and whether to look to place blame in one place.
  • Nuance and Managing Madrid.
  • We don’t have some sort of agenda, come on, we’re just as upset about this as you are.
