I respect that you both point out both the good and bad, as it can be often difficult to do for the cases of Cruijff, Pep, etc. The romance is well warranted and understandable, but perhaps a short description of the entorno leading up to and after the 94 EC final could be appended. It’s one incident in which I really believe Cruijff let his ego get the better of him (not the first time admittedly), to the detriment of the team- because he missed a golden opportunity to beat a Milan side who I believe Legends Were Born In October 1991 29th Birthday Gifts T-Shirt were one of the finest in their history (if not ever- even above Sacchi’s…probably not a popular opinion that one). Capello Milan as great as they were, were quite ripe for the picking at the time of the final, but Johan never gave them the respect they deserved.

I’ll say this though- overall the club is in a better position that it ever has been since I started watching, and there is still a lot to be proud of. I hope that this Liga dominance continues with and without Messi, and the odd lady luck finds us during testing times of the ucl here and there. It’s always a pleasure to watch the team and discuss it with other folks who feel similar. As for Johan, unfortunately it is easy to point our his weakness and that was, as you said, his ego. Legends Were Born In October 1991 29th Birthday Gifts T-Shirt But I agree, people blame the loss on him way too much. We didn’t lose 4:0 against any team. Even without key players that Milan squad was godlike and Savicevic played the best game of his career, he was the type of player who was unstoppable if he had a good game.

Unfortunate moment in our club’s history, but to me personally much less frustrating than Benfica or Steaua games because those two games should’ve been won both on paper and based on performances, while with Milan we got soundly beaten by a legendary squad. Today, we are privileged compared to before. We don’t have to worry about money or acquiring players or even attracting young talent. We just have to hope that we can assemble a team that will challenge in Europe, Legends Were Born In October 1991 29th Birthday Gifts T-Shirt Messi alone makes us dominant in Spain. I think the crown achievement of his time at the club should be something along the lines of 5 La Ligas in a row or even record-breaking 6, who knows. Not to mention that Messi needs just 3 more league titles to set an all time record, I have no doubt that it would last much longer than any CL record.
