Believe me I've had this sentiment for the better part of the last decade I'm so relieved he left the Bundesliga xd


soHAam05

I am just happy I am gonna be celebrating everytime lewa gets the ball next game instead of biting my fingernails off


alichoturqo

50 plus goals this year in all comps. Watch.


untermensh222

That would be huge downgrade from last year. Last year Lewa got 70goals all comp. 2nd and 3rd Mbeppe and Bezn got like 50ish


lssie_hyoudou

!score


kinzu7

lewa and haaland were warming up in a farming league. /s


jonnzi

Cadiz player was 2m away when the ball was loose. Lewandowski was like 8/9m away and still was there before the defender. That's insane.


Hmmmmmmokk

Thats cus lewa was running towards the ball and he is standing and defending its harder to take off


MrMoussab

I'm surprised how nobody mentions that. The way he accelerated and threw his body at the perfect time is just surreal


keithohara

That image of him Pedri and Dembele coming on was terrifying


OGConsuela

Nice work so far Cadiz, now the real match begins

*takes off the weights that were Ferran and Depay*


scumculator

Tbh raphinha has been a bit ass too today


fds_1

He was involved in both goals mate


pullthelever69

a player could play super bad and have 2 great plays in a match


fds_1

If you are directly involved in scoring two goals you can't really have a bad game, even besides that, Raphina was not bad, especially considering the fact Lewy and Demebele got replaced with Ferran and Depay from the start


themedicallad

they was fighting the clones all along


The_Vulgar_Bulgar

Got a bit of vibes from the Clasico when Madrid were 3 goals down at the Bernabeu. Then Messi was subbed on.


TimingEzaBitch

the one with Don Andres banger off of Neymar backheel?


Plankyz

If I remember correctly, the cameras were then put on the Madrid players (Marcelo, Ronaldo, and I forgot who else) and they looked worried lmao.


rchatt99

With good reason may I add lol 😂


elgringo22

Lmaoo our best 3 players coming on at once. Xavi was having none of it from Cadiz


Ranjith_Unchained

Lol should've sent Kounde as well just for shits and giggles


JaqenHghaar08

Needed that to break that shitty curse of 2006. Xavi had *enough*


wisdom591

Insane bench depth from Barcelona


latino666

imagine reading this a year ago


LallanasPajamaz

They surely have the best bench in the world, on paper. Now it’s just about making sure Barca makes the most of it while they have it since it will inevitably thin out in a year or two. I’ll be the first to say I’m surprised at how well Xavi has turned the squad around, I’m still not expecting them to challenge for the CL final or the league very convincingly, but I really didn’t think he was quite ready to manage Barca and I’ve been proven wrong so far.


FeeApprehensive4431

They were second last year and smashed Real 4-0 at home at the end of the season and since have added Lewa, Raph, Kounde, Kessie, Christensen, Alonso, Balde, and Kessi and u still don’t think they can win league? Oh and Dembele suddenly has turned into a god.


velsor

> I’ll be the first to say I’m surprised at how well Xavi has turned the squad around Alemany and Laporta are the ones who rebuilt the squad


leninist_jinn

It was reported recently that Xavi and Jordi work hand in hand in choosing the players/profiles while Alemany is involved in the negotiations for them. I don't mean to take credit away from Laporta and Alemany, but they're a lot less involved in getting the specific players we got but it is of course their hard work with the finances that allowed us to rebuild


LallanasPajamaz

I mean sure but they didn’t turn the squad around did they? They turned the club, as an entity around. Are they the ones managing the players and integrating like 8 new players into a new system after finishing 2nd in the league last year despite coming in during November when Barca was still 9th? Laporte and Alemany can release and sign whoever they want and sort out financials and staff and shit, yet it’s still up to Xavi and his staff to actually get those players to perform well and integrate into the system.


velsor

> I mean sure but they didn’t turn the squad around did they? They are the ones who managed to sign Lewandowski, Raphinha, Koundé, Kessie, Christensen, Ferran, Bellerin and Alonso when everyone thought they'd barely be able to sign anyone at all. Xavi has done a great job with the players, but without Alemany and Laporta, he'd still be working with Mingueza instead of Koundé, Abde instead of Raphinha, Lenglet instead of Christensen, Nico Gonzalez instead of Kessie and so on.


TheZenMann

It's either us or City at this point. Although I will say our depth in attack and defense is better than theirs.


simomii

That was because Xavi rotated, not like that's their usual bench Memphis and Ferran were horrible today


wrath____

They weren't good, but they weren't brathwaite and jutgla bad


ohthebanter

I mean, the bench was a lot stronger than the starting 11 today. Of today's starting outfield players I'd only expect Raphinha, Busquets and Araujo to start against Bayern, and those 3 had all been rested on Wednesday against Pilzen.


muntxx

Cadiz manager just looks up from the bench and says What am i supposed to do about that?


DarksideGustavo

The moment you upgrade from Fiat to Ferrari


OGConsuela

From Ferran to Fati

Subbed on #7,8,9. Was a deadly swap.

CanLlorenteCarForMe

Cadiz bullied Barca for 2 years straight. Xavi wanted revenge.


mediocre_hydra

One bully done, another awaits. That maybe a teeny tiny bit more tougher.


whatwereyathunking

Who else but Mr. Inevitable. On the pitch just 7 mins. What a signing.


Lilfai

Raphinha is a tank


Anywhere_Warm

Go to Madrid sub. They will still call him Europa level


serduncanthebold

Madrid fans trashing Barca players? that's shocking!!


CC-W

There was Barca fans saying he wasnt worth more than 30m when we wouldnt sell him cheap to them lol


Mental_Opportunity_9

I was one of them, i had never really seen him play much and was totally a moron thinking that he'd be average. One of my biggest concern was that barca already has shitton of financial pressure so buying a "mid-table" player could be too much of a risk. Of course I was a total moron for thinking that and am happy to be proven wrong


Akash3642

Alemany and Xavi decided that Raphinha was a better fit than Antony.


lambalambda

And not just them. I saw some Chelsea and Barca fans on here consoling eachother over both trying to overpay for an average player lol. If you ever watched him play for Leeds it was clear as day that the moment he was surrounded by quality players he'd shine even brighter.


yamatos-sideboob

Has your owner said anything about us paying the fees yet? Weren't we supposed to pay him by Sept 2nd or big news would happen


lambalambda

I haven't heard anything which is probably a good sign. I think if yous didn't pay on time the fee went up another £10m or something. I assume it was paid after the third or fourth activated lever lol.


Kenshi121

More like opposition fans..? Some lunatic barca fans might have said this but mainly opposition


CC-W

Was fans of a lot of teams tbh, its always the vocal minority who are morons lol I remember commenting on a thread after he played about 3 games for us he was destined to join Barca, he is the perfect winger imo


Kenshi121

Apart from the talent the main thing is he plays out his heart on the field..that's exactly what is needed in this barca team.


Hostilian_

Yeah, every game he played for Leeds you’d think someone was holding his family Hostage. He just doesn’t know how not to give 110%.


UpstairsJoke0

Fantastic player, but this clip isn't that remarkable. He timed his run and then squared the ball?

untermensh222

Reminds me of last year. This year is about Lewandowski, Mbeppe and Benzema. Final charts all comp for 2021. 1. 70 Lewa 2. 54 Mbeppe 3. 53 Benz


BHYT61

This man cannot stop himself from scoring

Lmao what a ridiculous player.

got to the ball faster than the defender that had a third of the distance to it

Special-Sir9079

He is amazing


approvalInspector

ImadDdopest

My man is a hunter


Xirteg

He puts so much effort in every situation it's crazy. Nowdays so many players are afraid to "sacrifice" their body for an opportunity but not Lewa, if there's a chance, he'll take it.


osoichan

>"sacrifice" their body f Idk if it's that or just lack of goal scoring instinct/hunger. I remember back when Tammy was still with us. So many balls just went past him, like if only he had little more hunger he would have scored so many more. I'm bringing up Abraham cause that's obv the one of the players I've watched the most, but I'm sure same could be said about many others. This may seem like easy goal to many, dead ball, keeper on the ground. But I'm sure at least 5 out of 10 strikers wouldn't even make the run.


Akash3642

That's what separates elite strikers and average strikers. They know which opportunity to take


iwillsoccerballs

Pichichi going to be hot


DingleberryToast

More like European Golden boot


Osama11Sul

That's quite obvious. Last season (Benzema's best), he had 25 goals in la liga. It's quite obvious the Lewy will have 30+ goals this season. Benzema had an amazing season because so many of those 25 goals were game winners and last-minute rescue goals.


kygrtj

Benzema only won top scorer last season because he no longer had elite competition. As soon as a world class striker joined Barca he was destined to lose the top goal scorer spot


Kuuskat_

>Benzema only won top scorer last season because he no longer had elite competition. And because he scored 25 lol. Even if there was an elite competor, they could've scored 24.


Taylannnnn

If this continues, it's already over


navneetjoshi7

Kenshi121

soboi12345

That run by robert to come and score waa brilliant.


0pticle

The ball just finds certain players like lewy, benzema and Haaland


eescobar863

They are the type of players midfielders and wingers can be like, “fuck it, he’s in the box somewhere”


[deleted]

I miss that vibe so much right now after 3 league draws in a row


michilio321

How has Mane been so far for you guys?


Yananou

Lot of good will, he presses, has good off the ball movements, good runs, always tries to be part of the build-up but his end product is not quite at the level we expect from him. He still needs time but I'm sure he'll get there.


[deleted]

Let's say he's not as involved in our game as Lewandowski used to be while lacking his clinical finishing too. Could be much better but I still have hope.


michilio321

The clinical finishing part is probably never going to be on the same level as Lewy but I'm sure he'll be a fantastic player for you guys once he gets fully adapted to Julian's system!

Tax_n1

Remember when everyone called the Bundesliga a farmers League because Lewa and Haaland could score so many goals? Look how many they can score in their new Leagues, i dont think the Bundesliga was the problem. These two are just insanely good.


pricelesslambo

This guy just has that ability to be at the right place at the right moment. Such a fantastic target


jonnzi

Not really. Cadiz player was 2m away when the ball was loose. Lewandowski was like 8/9m away and still was there before the defender. That's insane.


Visthebeast

His anticipation is insane, the defender stood there like a statue while lewa was already cruising from 6m away


jonnzi

Like that one Messi goal where 3 city players are watching Messi running and scoring


skullshot166

I miss when City were ass

any loose ball in the penalty area is a pass to Lewandowski

Just give Lewangoalski the pichichi already

how is he faster than the defender thats literally on the goal line


anonymousloverboy

Lewangoalski!! It’s been a while since I’ve loved a Barça player this much. I was heartbroken when Leo left, but I found someone new in Lewa


Jackrrr10000

For me it's still kinda cursed seeing so many Barca flairs celebrating Lewandowski goals. Still feels weird

The future is now old man


Kenshi121

Still can't believe Chelsea fans were comparing Lewandowski signing to koulibaly 😂

No shit it’s fucking Robert lewandowski lmfao


untermensh222

I mean dude won last year golden boot scoring 70 goals all comp while second and third did 54 and 53 whole fucking 15+ goals behind him and Bayern quit CL early and Bundesliga has 2 less team so 4 less games. than every other league. There is a reason why dude is put on messi/ronaldo level rather than Salah/Benz/Mbeppe level.


Kreszczi

thats more than guaranteed

Yeah. He's eyeing for the European golden boot

Funny thing is that when he was new to dortmund he was called that. Dude was fighting for starting 11 for 1,5 year. HE was called super sub because he would almost always make huge change.

Funny that the Spanish commentator was just talking about how this isn’t the same goal scoring Barcelona as the past game literally as raphina ran into the box with the ball

how many goals in how many games since joining? absolutely stupendous

I would also casually defend lewa by jogging beside him but well fought for the goal by lewa from pushing the midfielder away to putting effort into looking for a chance.
