Nothing left to hope man. 4th place is long gone. There is still the second half of the season to be played, but we have to admit the fact that Valencia, RM and Atletico are all superior compared to us this season. They can win the boring matches way easier and can actually get a result out of the top teams, while we can’t. We were fooled with Liverpool, but their defense is as pathetic, if not more pathetic than ours, I mean as a whole, the defensive system.
I lost trust in Berizzo since that debacle vs. Spartak, which shouldn’t have happened at all costs, and matches like today show that it wasn’t just an accident, rather a defensive system that gets exposed often and collapses, and if the opponents are willing and serious enough, they can do a lot of damage (4+ goals past us).
I really hope that the management acts wisely in January and saves this season before it is too late. Saving meaning at least trying to go far in CDR (why not win it?) to soothe the damages from the first half of the season, and at least maintain the Europe League places, as we can risk losing that too. Top 4 unreachable in my honest opinion.
Also fingers crossed we perform some miracle and go to the quarters for the first time in the history of the club, although the chances are extremely slim.
