Our Target Game is Strong, That’s for Sure
After the performance vs Barcelona, I am confident that the UEFA Crossbar Challenge League is now within reach!

On the serious side, I will personally not be taking this Clasico to heart. A clasico loss will always hurt, as Carlo can confirm, but hey... Calma. There’s a good chance this isn’t our final squad and/or formation. It wasn’t a horrible performance by any means. What’s bugging me is that Vini’s impact is substantially reduced in this formation. We are talking about the most dominant LW in the world at the moment (bar he-who-shan’t-be-named perhaps) here. I get wanting to try something new and give Jude the chance to perform at his best position but Vinicius is now the team’s superstar. That’s all NeRO’s gonna say for now, but let me hear your opinions on the matter.
