    Hell yeah! Never been so happy to be proven wrong

    About time, too, I've gotta say. I was getting sick of "nice" teams like us facing suspensions at the very end of the tournament when players were MOST needed, whereas "mean" teams like Madrid would have suspensions finished by the end of the round of 16.

    Uefa has changed the rules on yellow cards to make it harder for players to be suspended for the Champions League and Europa League finals.

    The European governing body has decided that yellow cards accrued will be wiped out after the quarter-final stage.

    Real Madrid's Xabi Alonso missed last season's Champions League final after picking up a third caution in the semi-final against Bayern Munich.

    The rule was first implemented at Euro 2012 in Ukraine and Poland.

    But this is the first time it has been implemented in major European club contests.


    A statement read: "The Emergency Panel decided that, as of this season, all yellow cards from the beginning of the group stage will expire on completion of the quarter-finals. Bookings will therefore not be carried forward to the semi-finals."

    I'd be happier than anyone if this is true, but Byron, surely you remember this "myth" (we'll see if it's true now) cropping up every single year.

    Loved how Pep, ice cold, gave Boa instructions right after the 1st goal when everyone was celebrating. He did the same after the 2nd goal (yep, the goal Boa scored)

    Aren't yellow cards removed from the semi finals onwards? It doesn't really matter if that's the case.
    Yellow cards have never been removed in any of the 5 years I've been watching CL football. Yet every year I hear this again

    One more card and he's suspended, right? Let's hope Benatia comes back soon, we can't afford to be forced to play Dante.

    Also lol aparently KHR called Badstuber "his personal hero"

    Can't wait to have him back. If we're doing a three man defense sans-Alaba, BaBeBo is the way to go
    Omg...i can't stop laughing to heard BaBeBo....
    Is Badstu stay in munich or going with the team?

    Badstuber is out of the Georgia game because of muscular problems. Hope it's nothing too serious, and just a precaution. It would suck to be injured yet again, especially since he's in great form.

    When I say 4 man defense it's the same as you're sayin 2 man defense. (two centerbacks + two fullbacks)

    True, Pep wants his central defender to take the ball forward and join the midfield and attack, adding the numbers and when that happens, his fullback provides cover.. His first candidate for the role was Martinez, whom he had trained session and session early when he started working with the team, and ironically pairing him with Dante, trying to teach him to be a central defender defending his zone instead of man marking, and moving the ball up front and joining the midfield.

    Now it seems like he's doing it with Boateng, as we see Boateng going forward or moving/passing the ball forward a lot, even scoring or assisting goals or making crosses. He also did that with Benatia from time to time. Everytime one of those guys go up front, his fullback (Rafinha or Bernat) or the holding midfielder (Alonso) moves in the defensive line to provide cover.

    He also used Alaba as a 3rd defender in many times the team started the game with a 3-man defense, and Alaba was the one moving up front, joining the attack, and Bernat (or sometimes Alonso) would be the ones to make cover in defense when that happened.

    Rarely did we play with 3 out and out centerbacks like Boateng-Badstuber-Dante.. We did, but very rarely.

    We mostly start with a 4-man defense, and the fullback or the holding midfielder provides cover when Boateng or one of the centerbacks push up front.

    Bottom line is; Benatia will sulk if he becomes a bench player here so if he doesn't have a future as a starting player here then we should get rid of him after the season.
    Dante will probably leave next year, as Pep considers Martinez as a central defender.

    As for the 3-man defense, we don't play a 3-man defense as often as it's suggested in this forum. We played most games with a 4-man defense this season. You can see it here:

    I thought he was younger
    He was 23 when he got injured. 26 really does seem old then at first glance.
