  • Well we’re looking really poor so far

  • Kris

    WHAT THE FUCKKKK??? This is disgusting.

  • pahas

    Something is missing

  • Kris

    Arda, keep your temper to yourself. When the ref blows the whistle, you stop!!

  • Kris

    Why the fuck is Gamez playing?? OMG 🙁

  • Dircil

    I am not sure if I am watching Sevilla playing against Atletico or Sevilla playing against Granada?

  • atleti10

    We dont even look dangerous from set pieces which is very worrying.

  • Dircil

    Am I the only one who thinks that Simeone are experimenting some sorts of tactics that conserve the team energy? They are playing hard on us but we seem to be very soft on them.

  • pahas

    Not sure if watching football or karate

  • pahas

    It’s been a long time to score from set pieces..

  • Max Huber

    We really need a striker!!

  • BlasiusMagnus

    …also creativity

  • Chewie

    And a creative CM to hold on to the ball longer. Very poor so far, zero chances to win.

  • Abdil Egriøz

    I’m the biggest arda fan you can find but why is he taking the corners? We seriosly need to be more accurate on set pieces and hold onto the ball more so sevilla can’t attack us as often and as dangerous!

  • Guest

    Koke is missing :(((

  • atleti10

    Oliver and Correa!!

  • I couldn’t watching the game, and I guess it’s a good thing, because I have some anger issues and it seems that we are playing very badly
    Greizmann is suspended for Valencia vital game, please tell me that he got booked for something worthy, to block a dangerous attack and prevent a goal, but I don’t think so

  • nah, completely went through someone.

  • I think we’re on… what… 7 bookings now?

  • Kris

    Yes Simeone,, let’s risk losing BOTH Mandzu and Griezmann for Valencia. Very smart, sir. Very smart.

  • Miranda out now too…

  • Kris

    Good job Miranda. Didn’t want to see him play next game anyways.

  • Kris

    Mario Suarez did something good? Holy shit.

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Can somebody sum up the suspended players for the Valencia game? Doesnt look good..

  • I don’t know if you are being serious or sarcastic, but for me it’s a good news that Miranda is suspended
    Our best period this seasaon was when Miranda was injured

  • Only Griezmann & Miranda
    Could have been much worse

  • Kris

    No, I am pretty serious. I am glad Gimenez gets to play instead of Miranda. He has been very shaky for an experienced defender like him.

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Yeah thank god for that. I really hope we win against Valencia and Leverkusen to lift off the pressure from our shoulders.

  • Kris

    Gabi and Tiago are done. Mario Suarez ain’t the right fit. We need a fresh center midfield that’s gonna block everything coming towards our defense. Saul is already there for the start. Koke also, I would love for him to play deeper as a CM. So, we need two more center midfielders. Oh, and yes, we need both our full back positions replaced. And a set of attacking midfielders, and Jan Oblak for next season. Then, we will win the treble. Everybody agree or no?

  • AaX

    Expected to not lose this game but not really pick up a victory either based on current result. Not a very good decision to bring out Griezmann. Thought he would nick in a goal in one of the counter runs from Torres. One of it could be the end of Torres’s attempt at goal. Well we will lose him next match but Gimenez would be a long awaited re-entry. Better rotation but stick with the already established first 11. We can start building the momentum back up next week when back at the Calderon. Vamos Atleti P E A C E

  • Koke – Saul
    Arda – Griezmann – Oliver/Correa
    Mandzukic

    That will be a young, strong, creative & attacking-minded team and without spending a single euro

    We need 2 young fullbacks, one on each side, Siqueira & Ansaldi are 28, Gamez is 29 and Juanfran is 30 .. this is very wrong
    We already have a young right back, Manquillo, and in fact, if we can bring him back next season we should do it (he signed on a 2 years loan deal) because since the start of 2015 he isn’t playing at all, doesn’t even make it to the bench

    We should sell Mario and bring Camacho back and sell Miranda and bring Velazquez back

    We need to make some cash from some of our loanees who are no less than 15

    And then we need to put most of our transfer budget on one world-class striker

  • pahas

    I think pashion is missing

  • Kris

    Idk man. I don’t really care for the “world-class striker” tag anymore. Anybody can become a world-class striker. I really believe Jimenez is that next guy from Atleti. Other than that, I agree with what you are saying, but I would rather go for a “world-class” creative mid, than a “world-class striker.”

  • The problem about the world-class playmaker is that Oli & Angelito will sit on the bench for a long time, because of the ugly truth we all know : Simeone does not know how to rotate

    I also have a big faith in Jimenez, but because of the same “rotation” dilemma, I think he needs to play on loan in another club in La Liga
    Not having a European passport is also a problem for him
