Our Opponents to Be in the CWC Final
That’s if we make it through the semis, of course.
A Message Full of Hope
Barcelona are points ahead of second-place Real Madrid.— B/R Football (@brfootball) February 7, 2023

Look, a remontada like this would require two miracles at this point. First and foremost, we need to stop dropping points and up our quality of football (ie the Mallorca game can’t be repeated, but we ’ve been saying that for a while). Two, Barcelona would have to stop winning games they shouldn’t.
So, we are expected to do something, eh? Remember the good ol’ days, when we knew there would be fireworks in the summer transfer window? Yeah, me too. These days, though, it looks like reinforcements we obviously need are the exception, rather than the rule.
