    Zue Zue was one of the greatest and he appears to have the Midas managing touch. Rare for sure.

    Barcelona, is no longer the Barcelona of Guardiola when the world saw exciting "new"' soccer. I quit watching Barcelona over a year and half ago for it no longer offered me good soccer as I saw it. Things have changed, due to bad decisions in the board room which has trickled down and effected what is happening on the field. It is over and although Real Madrid is now the better team not that they have introduced a new, better exciting style of soccer for which they haven't , but instead Barcelona had dropped down the ladder by passing others who they passed by a decade ago when they were going up.

    Agreed Frank. RM has so much depth, youngsters to spare, not sure who can deny them the Champions League repeat.

    Barcelona has been past it for at least a couple of years now.

    Of course there are plenty of great coaches who were mediocre players - guys like Mourinho or Ferguson.
