Time for a change there surely. Football is a results business, but even as a fan I'd be absolutely starving to see something resembling football after so many years watching some kind of turgid dross.

Are Atletico possibly in the same situation as Spurs? Lots of players who have been playing defensive football for years, now feeling burned out and tired of it?

Not sure it's quite the same, there haven't been any falling outs and players complaining angling for a move. However, their turgid football is down to Simeone. And it's alright when you're playing against Barca and Real, especially in the earlier years when there was a significant gap in quality in between them and those two. But playing like this against every side is madness. In other words, he's taking the piss and no amount of attacking players will change them as long as he's there.

if you will play that defensive and try to get a 1-0 for most part of the league, then why pay that money for Felix?

There is no doubt the team is poor. They are second yes... In the CL, they have showed signs of reverting to a very average size.

Hasn't really had a chance. Benzema is the #9, and Jovic is ineffective as a wide forward.

🚨 Barça and Atleti have done a deal to end their Griezmann row, say @elmundoes 🚨

Barça pay Atleti €15m, get a first option on players including Saúl (!) and Giménez (!)

To explain: Barça pay Atleti €15m so they won't release Griezmann emails that show deal was done early. In exchange, Barça get 1st option on players including Saúl and Giménez, if Atleti ever want to sell them

Good God, Atletico really is hard to watch. At first when Simeone started i liked that he was breaking that Barca-Real thing and getting trophies once in a while but watching his team now against Alaves,it really bleeds my eyes.

Looks like they will still get that famous 1-0 win though.

Finished 1-1. 11 goals in 11 matches, 5 draws already. At this rate they won't score more than 45 goals this year

I can only think of one game where Atletico were slightly entertaining under Simeone and that was when they went to Stamford Bridge and stuffed Mourinhos Chelsea. Actually, I think they also stuffed them in the UEFA final before then with Falcao up front, other than that, shite!

Watching Costa is painful. Hes just turned 31 but is performing like a 36 year old. The difference between him and Morata is massive. Morata is a bit dumb, and has erratic finishing but his all round game is far superior. One of the few players who can run the channels and stretch play for them.
