Mistakes can happen. And he may have been at fault for the penalty, but it still was just a friendly game with no real pressure. Umtiti is a stellar defender, certainly at the club level. I hope Romagnoli gets to that level (and it does seem like he could).

Umtiti, isn't that the guy that got rekt by Benz letting him score one of his putrid 5 goals this season Laughing

Joking aside, he's been what Barca have been missing, a guy who's actually good at his job. Barcas possession game has made bang average defenders like Pique and Marcherano look decent but Umtiti I feel has improved their defence

Remains to be seen how well he does against the Kommander and if he can help Barca win the CL.

...

considering Umtiti is an upgrade over all our CB's that we pair with Bailly..

your posts are terrible. You should try to sign Jones and Smalling since we're discarding them and they're better than Matip and VVD.

Going from dispossessing an exhausted scrub attacker in the 70th minute for the first time after the opposition get their first attack of the game off, to playing under Mourinho. Lmao

Lad's gonna have to make more contribution in his first 10 games than he ever has at Barca.

After the Chelsea game:
"We tried to defend well, but we defended too much for my liking," the centre-back told French television.

"Our game is more [about] going forward, playing in our opponent's half. But the most important thing is we qualified. We suffered, but that will serve us well in the matches to come."

We'll replace him with Lenglet tho, with Mina as backup. So all good for the club.

Honestly, Umtiti has been kind of a disaster in these 2 NT games... he's been reckless and out of position.

Perhaps he is poorly instructed. I'd look for the source of the problem in the coaching department :coffee:

Deschamps is an excellent defensive coach... that's what I don't like about him.  He's like Mourinho.

No...  Umtiti played like David Luiz in the past 2 games.  PK of course... and then made a stupid challenge at the center line that led to the Russia goal.  Got owned a couple of times too by being too aggressive.

Just not a good showing.  He's good though.  Just needs to understand that this isn't Spanish football.  It's far more direct so you can't get super aggressive like that.

Koscielny looked far better today.

That's because Koscielny is the best french CB despite being past it imo.

Koscielny is not past it. He's just had a slump.

It's against Russia though... Kos can do a job. He's just not what he used to be.

His body is finished. Slower. Weaker. Poor Stamina.

But he should still start at the WC though.

No way he starts. Varane/Umtiti if healthy. Kos doesn't have the speed to keep up with the really top forwards for a whole tournament. He's a GREAT one to have if you need a big game though. He can raise his game up for the occasion.

Buddy I don't know who you think you are but this is GL. Balanced, well reasoned opinions have no place here. A player is either the best or deserves to be playing in the third tier, there is no middle ground and that's the way we like it.

Umtiti is a great player. So it Varane.

Defenders are stuck between a rock and hard place in these NT friendlies. They get criticized for not making plays... yet they can't play physical because it's a friendly.

It's a lose/lose situation.

GUILLEM SAYS

"What is absolutely true at the moment is that Samuel Umtiti is playing a two-card game, on one hand he is telling Barcelona he would like to stay but on the other he wants to treble his wages. It’s not normal for a player in their second season at Barcelona to renew their contract – which, coincidentally finishes in 2021 – just because Manchester United reportedly want to trigger his €60m buy-out clause. At this moment in time negotiations have stopped and right now Barcelona are less positive than they were in the past, but there is still a long way to go."

Balague knows *bleep* all, he's just saying what everybody else has already been reporting

But if Umtiti is so money hungry then I'll be happy to see him go

Umtiti: “Linked with United? There is interest from several clubs but, again, I have so many objectives to reach with Barça that for the moment this question does not arise. In this world, things go very fast. But what I can say is that I am very happy.”

I'm sure there's a happy medium to be reached, I really like him, potentially the best defender in Barcelona history. I just hope he doesn't ruin it and go full on mercenary.
