Last night Allegri's pragmatism would have won us the game. Barcelona suffering crushing defeat over the weekend, trying to build identity under new coach, their morale and overall atmosphere around the club would have worked in our favor. Allegri's Milan, far worse side than ours, outplayed far stronger Barca side in 2013. He made players like Niang look like genuine superstars. We didnt have a single shot on target against worst Barcelona in ages. Im still hoping Pirlo pulls it through and invents something brilliant but if by December we will still look utterly hopeless, chaotic, disorganized, Id like us to bring this dude back. Max has also himself to blame, he got sacked after suffering a meltdown and started openly questioning quality of his squad, bickered through and with the media. After 2 years, dust have settled though
All in all should be a lesson to anyone who underestimates the importance of a coach, the putrid shit of football we have been subjected to over the last 2 seasons. Style over substance. We pass the ball endlessly and aimlessly around, with very little penetration into the box.
