Not enough quality in midfield, still.

And 4-4-2 obviously doesnt work... I wonder why Deulofeu doesn't get any chances.

This is very cool, one of the few advantages of having no crowd.

Suarez sounds very much on the brink of a breakdown

Actually that's more due to our easy fixtures. Like I have said I don't cliam we are better than ever or have no issues whatsoever but I like the way we are approaching the games and the direction Valverde wants us to go. There are clear signs of improvement in many aspects than what we were last season under Lucho.

Come on, your gonna use the game that was played in a empty stadium, with the majority of our players not wanting to play it in the first place? Heck they didn't even know if they were gonna play at all prior to kick off. With the riots going on at the same time as the match, this is really a bad example.

Will be pulling for Messi and Argentina tomorrow. Would be a damn shame if they don't get in.

Then again wtf was Sampioli thinking playing Benedetto and Papu or whoever. They could of easily fielded a stronger 11.

Got to say, Gomes in midfield wasn't that bad today (on the wing was obviously garbage). Same goes with Deulofeu, had a pretty ok game. Today more than ever showed how desperately we need a real holding/controlling midfield today. Rakitic was just all over the place, losing balls in horrible areas or caught out of position which left the gap open that lead to Saul's goal. I wouldn't even blame Rakitic, as it's the clubs fault for not buying anyone the last 3-4 windows now to start. Rakitic off the bench or rotated in less games wouldn't be so bad.

I don't know why Valverde is obsessed with Gomes when at the same time Denis doesn't get any playing time.

4-4-2 obviously is garbage and I believe everyone realized that by now, so Deulofeu should be starting from next game on.

What thought process Valverde went through yesterday that he ended up thinking Gomes would perform well as a kind of a right winger almost... Thanks to this genius idea we basically played a man down until the 60 minute mark

For me it's clear that the starting line-up should look this way:

Semedo-Pique-Umtiti-Alba
Denis-Busquets-Iniesta
Deulofeu-Messi-Suarez

Yes, Rakitic should be a bench player at best for a club like Barca. I don't understand why is it so hard for this board to buy a good midfielder. I get that you can fvck up 1 transfer window and not buy anyone worth of note, that happens, but this BS is going on for years.

I suppose it'd be better for the team if they called up some youngsters instead of stinking up the place with failed transfers over and over. Bet you we would be better off with somebody like Aleñá but, of course, they also forgot about the B team altogether.

Valverde is definitely showing more sense than Enrique tactically, vs Atletico we usually get physically beaten, which we still did in much of the first half Very Happy But with Messi on fire, having a physically strong midfielder in there to compete avoided us being out numbered if we had like Deloufeu in there.

It seems to me that it would make much more sense to just simply make Suarez stay in the middle and wrestle with the CBs instead of getting him away on the wing where he's abso-fvcking-lutely useless.

Also, AGAIN, Rakitic should be 4th choice midfielder after Denis, Paulinho and Alena.

So far, however, we're regressing instead of improving. The start was great, but since Dembele got injured, it's been only getting worse.

I hate this 4-4-2 crap that Valverde has used these last 2 games.

And he seems to love Paulinho and Gomes, and to be fair to them they both seem to work decent in that set up but that set up itself is ugly and riggid so it’s not saying allot. Aso Semedo should start at right back and Sergi would be a better midfield option than Rakitic but instead Semedo is benched and Sergi is forced to play in a position that limits his attacking qualities

And probably the biggiest victim is Suarez of this new set up. He is constantly caught with the ball im horrible positions - sort of reminds me of how he looks with the National team.

Deulofeu, Denis and Semedo should be starters but obviously EV purposely omits them out to make us play like crap.

So far we haven't lost a single game but it's not looking great in the perspective of the whole season.

----Suarez-------Messi-----
Paulinho-Busq-Rakitic-Gomes
Alba---Umtiti---Pique--Sergi
--------Ter Stegen--------

That's some straight BS

How are we winning the games with this lmao

Suarez completely out of form, Messi kinda out of form, Paulinho-Rakitic-Gomes BANG average. Alba out of form, Roberto isn't even a defender, Shakira with her head in the clouds.

Only Umtiti, Busquets and ter Stegen are rock solid and keep us alive.

Even an out of form Messi seems to score or assist at least once per game Proud

(obviously not out of form)

He is kinda out of form. Clearly not playing up to his standard, losing a ton of balls in a silly way (also because others around him underperform but still)

His out of form form is still dope, but thats another story.

Meh he’s not entirely at his best, but far from out of form.

So I hear the team played terrible, as the lineup suggested?

If we're going to go full 442 might as well commit to antifootball and use Paco as a target man rather than underperforming Suarez...

I don't understand why Valverde is so bent on going with the 4-4-2 as well... because it clearly seems to not work very well. He's like so determined to make it work.

Also, I'm curious if we would play better with Dembele, because we seem to be lacking that speed and movement on the wings.

Seems like Valverde is trying to rotate and give as many players playing time as possible when playing vs weaker sides, Denis Suarez supposed to be the third attacker but largely disappointed in this game. Then Deluofuo wasnt effective, I just feel once we have Dembele he would be so much better and our attack should be much better than it is now.

Pretty 4-4-2 will be just on the occasions when we need to boast our midfield vs some the tough teams strong in that area, 4-3-3 should still be our base.
