    Oh boy we fucked up with the signings lately - this is actually making it harder to lure WC players our way. Playing for a Barcelona with Alves, prime Iniesta and younger Messi must have been a wet dream for almost all players. Instead of wasting time and money on Gomes, Arda, Rafinha, Denis on midfield and just signing 1 fucking WC midfielder - wtf?! We insisted in not signing an RB when Alves went - we lost the best attacking RB there ever was with an mediocre RW and Roberto who should play in midfield. We signed Paco, a static non-technical traditional mediocre striker. Our core is getting older and now we lost Neymar. This is going to be tough - this board SUCKS!

    Prices have gone through the roof but we should have planned earlier and made our moves immediately after season ended. City grabbed Silva, Bayern Tolisso...

    Anyways. All I wanted to say is if Barto had a vision and said, "look we won't pay extortionate fees, let's trust La Masia", he'd have my backing.

    Can't have Coutinho for under 120mil.? Fine, trust Alena. Keep Samper as backup DM, etc.

    It 's the right time to try 352. We still have M & S and two decent wing backs.

    Just to remind you, even in our treble season we had to also rely one our opponents being severely weakened for us to win UCL.
    PSG: had to do without Verratti, Motta, Thiago Silva for the first leg
    Beyern: had to do without Ribbery, Robben, Alaba

    Based on what we have, I think this is how we could play
    In a 4-2-3-1
    ..................Ter stegen.....
    Semedo...pique....umtiti...alba
    ........Roberto.......Busquets......
    Dembele.....Messi........Deulofeu
    ....................Suarez


    In a 4-3-3


    .....................Ter stegen
    Semedo...pique.......umtiti.....alba
    ................busquets..................
    .....Roberto.............Iniesta............
    ............messi..........dembele....
    ......................suarez
    Romans 1:19-20
    Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse

    First we need this board out.
    We need barca legends to speak out against them to get support for it. Social media outrage plus chants next saturday from all our fake fans.
    Messi and Iniesta threathning to leave would seal it.

    Then afterwards we need to get Laporta back. I know he has his flaws but its the only way to get back to our cruyff philosophy with like minded. Players and then take a page out of what Johan did at Ajax. Put former players who love Barca in important positions. Then focus big time on la masia and get that Barca dna going again, with the star signings every now and then combined with smart scouting of young players.
    Get rid off al the currebt dead weight and make sure we are good to go to try to win a treble again.

    Sounding like a broken record I know, but hard to fathom how incompetent these guys can be.

    These are the changes I would make regardless of how this season goes.

    1 – Marc-Andre ter Stegen
    2 – Nelson Semedo
    3 – Gerard Pique
    4 – Carles Aleñá
    5 – Sergio Busquets
    6 – Denis Suarez
    7 – Philippe Coutinho
    8 – Andres Iniesta
    9 – Luis Suarez
    10 – Lionel Messi
    11 – Ousmane Dembele
    13 – Jasper Cilessen/NEW GK IF HE LEAVES
    14 – Marlon Santos
    15 – Paulinho
    16 – Gerard Deulofeu
    17 – Timo Werner/CF who can play as a winger/Griezmann
    18 – Jordi Alba
    19 – Lucas Digne
    20 – Sergi Roberto
    21 – BACKUP RB
    23 – Samuel Umtiti
    25 – Yerri Mina

    Would make Aleñá 3rd choice/4th choice in a midfield already with Iniesta taking a step back. Roberto to rotate in the RB position when needed and as Busquets' backup and other midfield positions.

    If we keep the current setup, a CF like Werner who can play out wide, watch him play and he often starts out left like Villa did. Not necessarily him, but someone of that profile who got great pace which we need more of in the team.

    Denis and Deulofeu for backup positions and where needed.

    Will update this with a CB and CM name later, but got to be a CB with a bit more experience IMO and a CM that got the quality to make a difference right now and is mobile enough to move around and do a job defensively too.

    Valverde doesn't like big squads. Well, this one is of 23 players. Could even sell another one here to cut it down to 22.

    Roberto is not starter material, as much as we all like him at the team. Some players are just good squad players who can contribute, but just not as a starters. Roberto is exactly that type of player and this makes him very valuable in his own way.

    Alena is not a starter either. So, in reality, we need Iniesta replacement, and Rakitic replacement. I think we can go with a younger player instead of Rakitic, but for this we need a top midfielder instead of Iniesta.

    Roberto is starting material. You don't need all 11 world class as shown many times before.

    World class, no, but you still need a top 10 midfielder, and Roberto isn't even that. It's a very important position on the field. A lot of passes come through you.
