For Example if we had Alves-T.silva-Mehdi Benatia/Barta-Adriano/alba we would become immediate favorite for CL and La Liga.

Our midfield is not that bad, problem is we got shit defender so we can't take risk.

No you wouldn't because both LB options are nowhere near good enough defensively to be considered immediate favourites for any sort of trophy.

Franchise I believe Rosell did agree to sell 2 of the 4 and I'm sure you know which two he'd sell and which two he wouldn't.

Dude was in top notch form just a few games back and everyone was praising how the old Pique was back. A bad game with a horrible front line of Song and Busi and Bartra, Monotya next to him and now everyone wants him out? Dude would still be awesome if we got him a better partner that hot/cold Bartra and midget/I have no business being a CB Mascherano.

Would make more sense (and is more realistic) to just sell Mascherano and find another CB and a solid back up since Puyol will be really old next season. Bartra and a new back up CB and a new starter to pair with Pique would be ideal.

Out - Mascherano
In - New starting CB
In - New back up CB to replace Puyol's current back up role.

This isn't even asserting the issues we have at the fullback positions.

Im not convinced or agree at all still. I guess everyone has their opinions. I mean, just look at it objectively, Pique is still a world class defender. Or at least one of the best around.

Its not like we can go write up a wish list and any top CB will come, proven by T.Silva. So selling Pique and then hoping to have a good enough replacement straight, is just not cool headed thinking.

We can if we push hard and there were a lot of CB available in the past 2-3 years we could've snapped up, but our club seemed to be staring only at Luiz for some reason. T. Silva showed some desire to come as well, but we didn't simply push hard enough for that deal, or should we say all our money went to the Neymar deal saga thats going on at the moment.

Its always, get him competition or a partner.

Dani pls

@BarrileteCosmico wrote:Regardless, if he bosses vs Madrid and Atletico but then flops against Sevilla and Valencia we can't call him elite either (even if segunda player is a ridiculous hyperbole). His inconsistency is an attitude problem and it has been a part of his game for the past 3 years. I wouldn't mind if we got 2 WC Cbs instead of just one this summer.

Anyways, it is because Pique is a youth product, is a winner of every trophy and wants to be the future president. No one says he should be sold because it's just incredibly unlikely that it would be even considered.

Yeah I saw that, but that wasnt part of the OP. I thought that was his response to the subject which was brought up, but not the original intent.

We just need 1 CB to partner Pique.
Benatia would be my pick!

As we saw in the big games, when our players were focused and fit to control the midfield. We played well vs RM, Atletico and City! We need a CM [instead of playing Song+Busquets to give Xavi some rest, ex; v Sociedad, we will have a real CM to rotate with Xavi].

More depth in Midfield to keep all players fit! And, that's the key in our system to concede less chances and defend better!

We don't need 2 CBs, we need 1 CB and 1 CM!

I'd take Hummels and Benatia. Plus Mathieu for LB. He can also play CB like Abidal by the way.

Alves-Hummels-Benatia-Mathieu.

Every defensive problem solved.

Mathieu is already 30, he would be a one or two year solution at best.

Hummels we could try for, but we'll probably have to pay the release clause knowing Dortmund. In any case not the best CB for a high line was the consensus last time his name was brought up.

Benatia, perhaps. Roma have been shown to be open to making business deals. If we offer them twice what they got him for they might go for it.

The consesus was that Pique and Hummels wouldn't work together. Hummels and Benatia however ...

Why is it impossible? It's not like we'd be breaking up something that is working. Laughing

The guy still cant'shut his mouth ....after defeat “It’s nothing to be worried about. We’re one game away from the lead and it’s all the same if you lose one game or two.”

Pique asks  OP to be calm :coffee: 
just like him  Laughing

I wouldn't mind him being sold.

Yeah he has some great games where he looks like the old Pique- he does. I've noticed Alba have a good game every once in a while too, I called him MotM once. But his inconsistency is terrible, and it's been going on for far too long now. We can't have that sort of inconsistency unless there is someone world class to bail him out or keep him focused, right now we have neither, so I'd be fine with selling him.

Truly awful 1/4 to half the time, a team like Barca can't have that inconsistency- especially in the back line.

Dani taking my top two picks Laughing

A good cheap CB we could have gotten with great potential is Chiriches. He shuts off at times but is young and is a good defender. Oh, and since Barca is obsessed with it, he's one of the calmest on the ball I've seen in quite some time.

My opinion on Pique being great in big games:

Its great to show up in big games, they require big performances more than any other. However, 3 points vs Atletico and 3 points vs Rayo all count for the same.

Being good in big games is only something you brag about when your just as good (or close to it) vs the weak ones.
