The Barcelona Consistency Appreciation Thread

Post by futbol on Sat Feb 03, 2018 5:46 pm

Seeing Madrid's downfall in La Liga right now made me think about Barca's dominance of the past decade.

Since 2008 (last 10 seasons) Barca's point tallies in La Liga were:

87 (Champions)
99 (Champions)
96 (Champions)
91 (2nd)
100 (Champions)
87 (2nd, robben on the last day)
94 (Champions)
91 (Champions)
90 (2nd)
And current season running away with the league towards ~100 points

That's 7 of the last 10 league titles and the other 3 times we were still competing until the last day.

Madrid on the other hand have surrendered by December several times, noteably in 12/13 and now.

Please let us all take a minute and appreciate such unprecented dominance in a competitive elite league.

Thank you very much.

Like appreciating Bayern's dominance in Germany I suppose.

With fair refs it would've been ten titles in a row. Mad 11-12 refs denied 10 at least 50/50 penalties in a row from Barca. 13-14 Atletico won with Messi onside goal called offside, and last year, lmao, I mean 1 meter inside goals ruled outside. Laughing

Every Uefadrid title the past decade is fake, well maybe not the 10-11 Copa, but I would have to analyze it with my loop.

It's always difficult running a marathon against the GOAT

So much looking forward to the time after Messi declines/retires.

It will be a joy watching Barca try and fail to win La Liga and CL with a starting 11 including Sergi Roberto, Paulinho, Paco Alcacer and a couple of Roosevelts and Lyndons signed from the Brazilian 3rd division for reasons of fraud

You can talk about consistency when Barcelona keeps dominating the league long after Messi hangs up his boots. But as of now, it's really hard to talk about it, especially when you happen to have a player who could make freaking Leeds title contenders.

So based on the last few replies can we unanimously agree that Messi is the undisputed GOAT?

He's the best of his generation and easily in the top 5 of all-time. You just saw what Barcelona looked like without him.

I'm reminded of the GL predictions at the start of the season when a Neymar-less season was meant to be disastrous and the 2 time CL winners in a row were going to walk the league Proud
