I think Messi playing on the flank now is strange...he is old now... Specially depay he can play on the wing but he is better at the center tbh

You guys said that the most embarrassing thing that can happen to a player is to be subbed into the game just to be taken out before the game ends. That’s is how it’s gonna look like for Griezman if he returns to Atleti. So it’s less likely to happen.

The only crack Barca had last season was not having a traditional number 9. Now we have Aguero I think Barca are serious Champion’s League contenders if Aguero is fit for those 5 crucial knock out games

Can't believe Pique's stinky name is still on the roster. Enough already. OK, ok, he was once useful. He hasn't been in the last two years and in fact detracts from Barca's defence' performance. Kick him out since he obviously doesn't know he's overstaying his welcome.

Barca legit brings in such a huge amount of views. The match highlights on bein outweighs any of the other la liga teams. So casually talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world especially once that houses one of if not the best player in the world brings in the views. As long as they can continue recycling the same story for clicks they won’t stop.

As long as Pique, Lenglet, Roberto, Braithwaite, Pjanic and Umtiti are with Barca, no progress can be expected from them even they make 10 new signings.
ibrahim jaan
ibrahim jaan 13 dager siden
@Rohith Reddy nope , alba and roberto are the main reason barca has weak defence which cost them in all these finals and matches , specially alba for last 5 6 years. And dembele was never meant to be signing for barca , its completely worng. I said these from the start for like 5 6 years and almost 95 percent has proven right. Also greizman is wrong sigining for barca i think.
Rohith Reddy
Rohith Reddy 13 dager siden
@ibrahim jaan Barca can still keep Alba as he can be a good squad player. Dembele is still 23years old with lot of talent and can be world class after couple of years. So, these two can still be at Barca. But Barca needs to get rid of this old deadwood which I mentioned above if they want to make any progress.

I'm an EPL fan and I hadn't watched pedri before Euros (had just heard his name). But I watched all of the Spain's matches and I can instantly say his level above anything that greenwood,saka and Foden do currently. And his just 18. What a player 🔥. Even Luis Enrique said that Iniesta wasn't this good at 18 which is true

Ok dude. What are we basing this on, 6 games? This impact you speak of was non existent against Italy. Also, since we're comparing to all positions and not just his, Erling Haaland is tremendously better than Pedri in every conceivable way and will continue to be greater than him and will most likely win the Ballon d'or in the coming years.

@Shirin Niazi u forgetting when a team plays against barcelona. Their main concern is messi and usually they try to mark him with more than one player. This opens up space for other players.. theres alot more to a game than just the players... Saka is nowhere near great.. he missed englands crucial penalty. He didnt do much in Arsenal they finished 8th. Greenwood has saved utd many times in crucial games..the type of goals gescores is amazing... btween Saka and Greenwood i would chose Greenwood yo score most chances and Saka to miss alot of chances.

@Katleho Rakgosi preety sure starting for arsenal is a lot easier than starting 93% of Barca games Also la liga young talent of the season was also Pedri !! And my point is any player whose a starter In midfield at 18 for both Barca and Spain Benching the likes of Thiago..pjanic..rodri..Lorente even Dani olmo to be an undisputed starter If he was English He’d be getting balon d or shouts 😂
Katleho Rakgosi
Katleho Rakgosi 11 dager siden
@Dami Fash You stating facts that are convenient. The euros are 7 matches max. Spain only played in 6. In these 6 games one cannot determine that Pedri is the best young player in Europe c'mon. I honestly didn't notice him up until this tournament. 1. To qualify for these young player awards dont you need to be younger than 22? I'll concede 18 is very very young though. But how many teams brought players young enough to qualify? He did better than all the English youngsters I'll give that. 2.He is a 3rd Golden nominee ?? What does this even mean was he 3rd highesr in nomination votes? Aren't there 80 nominees in total. The max age to qualify is 20. The award is comparing players around the same age. I'll concede again that 18 is very very young. 3.Saka,Foden both start for thier clubs and started for England( I'll concede this one as Pedri was picked ahead of Thiago but Spain just had a clearer gameplan, whereas England rotated alot). 4. Foden won EPL young player of this season. Who won La Liga young player of the season? 6. If there was a UCL young player of the season award its between Haaland/Mount(is 22 too old?)/Foden.

The midfield for Barca looks amazing. However the entire backline looks shaky. Up front although a lamp post would contribute as much as Martin Braithwaite, Aguero didn't look sharp in the Copa America. He's also on the wrong side of his 30's. Messi is 34, he's still the best player but he's not going to run around the pitch as much so Barca should have someone with that youthful exuberance to provide that balance. Depay hasn't proved his merit at the elite clubs. Ansu Fati looked amazing before his injury. It was very serious. Who knows how this will effect his performance IF and when he returns. Usually the younger players recovery faster. It's proved the opposite with him. I hope he's back and can fulfill his dreams in a Barca shirt.

@Jobin Jose on bad form yes. but when hes on form hes pretty solid. off course selling lenglet and bring better players is the ideal but looking at current situations i dont think it will be the case. so keeping lenglet for 1 more season as back up and try to help him getting his form back is the more plausible option ofc with wage cut. in the meantime barca should focus on seliing griezmann, coutinho, umtiti, pjanic, braithwaite, neto and if possible roberto.

He'll get a statue, museum section, award named after him, stand section, facilities with his name, etc. I think he should become a club ambassador after retirement.

@Soumak Basumallik yes sure it is extremly hard for barca to win ucl this season considering how powerful other clubs are chelsea, city, bayern. Even in la liga i dont know atletico will even get stronger( they just signed de paul) so it will be very tough season for barca.

Yeah in UCL Barca do not stand a chance. But in la liga it will be difficult to tell: anything can happen.

ESPN never talk about Barca’s football style or players. There’s been so many good moments and players coming through but all they ever cover is the “cracks” and “weak defence”. Must be getting paid by PSG or Madrid for their slanted coverage.

Griezmann under performs and has lost focus from the game. I don’t want him very much. He is not worth the money and I think he is just too weak of a player, mentally and just in general.

@Sudex He only had a few good games during the Copa del rey, but he's a defensive player with discipline. The problem is that he doesn't contribute enough to the team's attacking play. He is just not worth as regards his wages.

@Dami Fash like I said he is an amazing player...I really do rate him and I thought he was essential to the Spanish team However I do think he needs to win something major before you compare him to Mbappe. Mbappe was the 2nd contender for the ballen d’or the whole season before psg got knocked out,it’s different gravy you’re talking about here (he won the golden boy award)

@Maurice Dobson A 17 year old coming from a division 2 side goes to become a starter for Barca and for Spain in one season Wins best young player at euros And is no 3 on golden boy nominations all that at age 18 and being a midfielder ( an award that usually Favour’s forwards) Just say you don’t watch him Iniesta himself said no one has done what Pedri has at 18 Himself included gtfo
