and yet Barca have won more trophies than Madrid in recent years despite the terrible board and Madrid are looking poor to start this season.It’s one of those things like the Gerrard slip, that’s just so perfect you can’t help but think it’s like a script written by their biggest rivals. The goings on at Barcelona must have been such a joy to watch for their rivals.
Assuming they get a striker in and Dest, Busquets and their CBs will be the weak link. They need someone better there at DM and CB.Some thoughts.
Infinitely more aggressive press from front to back.
The fluidity of the front three interchanging is creating a ton of space.
Tempo is really good. Counter-attacks are actually catching them in numerical inferiority.
Less focus on Messi will probably free him from constant double-marking.
Fati is insane.
De Jong has been exceptional in midfield.
4-2-3-1.What's the formation they're playing (not watching) ?
Koeman spoke about wanting to play players in their correct positions, said Griezmann was not a winger, and de Jong was a midfielder. Where are Messi, Coutinho and Griezmann positioned?
I think he was very good. love how he moves when he receives a pass, very quick to get some space there if someone is defending him closely.Coutinho slowly getting back to top form. According to some of my Barca friends he has been one of the best players during pre-season and the first league Games. Interesting that 2 written off position 10 players ( + James Rodriguez) are performing again.
Happy for him , such a nice player on and especially off the pitch.
