I’d allow it.
Eh, we'll see. Barça hasn't done too well in this stage of the CL for the past 3 years (with Messi and all). It's not so much an issue of quality, it's more like something (mentally) isn't fully kicking in for them for the past couple of seasons. They've still dominated the League and Cup too, which makes it extra weird.
I'm not arguing that Pep isn't good or anything, but its important to remember that it was only possible to spend 70m on a goalkeeper because Barcelona bought one of Liverpool's midfielders for £140mGuardiola started with a Barca side that seemed at the end of a cycle and he had the balls to kick out some players who were clearly at the end of their run like Ronaldinho, downplaying his work there just as him being lucky that he found a team with all that talent is odd to say the least, and trying to take Liverpool as an example of virtuosity when this summer they spent 70 million on a goalkeeper and much more on other players is disingenuous, if they'll win a trophy it wiil be 'cause like any other top club in Europe they spent lots of money on good players (not trying to discredit Klopp's work btw).
The "he should go in a smaller club with a smaller salary" talk is also nonsense, coaches are professional, asking them to renounce to money and better means at their disposal just to prove some point to god knows who is fantasy talk.

4 Wolves players :lolSome surprises in Portugal's selection for the Euro Qualifiers:
Didn't even know Dyego Sousa was Portuguese tbh. There's also been zero rumours of him being called up in the press, so that makes it even more impressive. Could be a a nice "classical" striker for us though.
João Felix also comes as a surprise. Pretty young (19) and basically skipping the U-21 team too. Jota I think is a return? Unsure, but given his season it's not that surprising.
