Oh good...so hes lethargically going to drag this corpse around the pitch.

This is going to be an interesting year.

Dont screw this up Atletico. This is your chance.

I hate to say it, Liga is really Real’s to lose.

Especially if Athleti sell Oblak.

I have to say, congratulations to Barca. That is some top-tier asset management to keep Messi locked in like that.

Is it really going to help them? Upset 'Stockholm Syndrome' Messi is better than no Messi at all, especially considering that the rest of the team is a hot mess.

Their strategy next season is basically hoping for some Messi Magic while praying that Ter Stegen pitches a shutout every day. But the level of their competition is a joke. Atletico might get dismantled but yeah, its really all on Real. That League might be a cakewalk for them this season.
