This show is just a bunch of journos who've never played football and former players who didn't have remarkable careers talking nonsense about people much better than them. And it's not even like these people are good at commentary. They are always terrible at predicting everything about everything. Messi just put up a season where he was a man of the match in 20 odd games out of the 30 odd he played and put on a clinic to win the Copa America and someone here has the nerve to say he on the wrong side of his career.

Honestly, I still don't know what Barca got Aguero...unless Barca will do away with Dembele and Griezmann. And give young players like Ansu, Yusuf, Collado a chance up front.

Depay can play LW. How is it complicated? So what if he likes making those runs into the false 9 position from time to time, Neymar did it as well. As long as those front 3 build chemistry they can be dangerous against their opponents

Busquets,pique,alba,aguero.... Next season Barcelona may finish out of top four...The four players are finished and Barcelona deserve to finish out of top four for keeping these finished players. If you support Barcelona don't watch next season because the season could be very painful to watch.

as a barca fan i'm really worried of this team ,we have a team of three attacker that wont press ,and we have biusquets as we saw in the euro ,when the team does a really good high press he is the best in that position ,if he has to defend backwards he suffers a lot and barca suffers a lot if busquets its not comfortable.

Unpopular opinion: fati to play LW, take out busquets and put depay there. And then move depay up from cdm to cam.(o tried to use fifa positions to make it easier to understand lol)

Barca have again bought the right players at the wrong time. Now they might as well play with 9 attackers Dembele, Griezmann, Braithwaite, Pedri, Trincao, Messi, Depay, Aguero, Fati.

I find it hard for anyone who is not from La Masia, no matter how talented they are in absolute measure, to play with Messi. Reason being that they just wouldn’t have the technical skill and the ability to read the game like Messi to gel with him. Pedri is an example of how those boxes are ticked and fuses with Messi so well despite being only 18. I’m afraid the odds of success are stacked against Memphis.

I'm not convicted by Aguero at all. He's passed his prime and won't do anything that Braithwaite can't do

In my view barca would go for in for a search for a good play maker to help messi than these strikers.putting money on these strikers is a waste. messi can do a good striking than any world striker if helped with play making just like iniesta-xavi times.

Trincao is on loan to Wolves, Braithwaite and Coutinho are leaving.

Depay doesn't have that ego anymore For god sake if you troubled yourselves with a pit of research you will know that he was humbled during his man u days to the point were he went to a lesser team to rejuvenate his career He even used a new system to find him a club that suits him that is not the actions of egotistical player
