Talk about Cruyff had words of praise for Valverde is like Obi-Wan Kenobi once praised Anakin before he transforms into Darth Vadar.

    This is what Johan said about EV's Espanyol: "His work is more than excellent. If you watch Espanyol play it's good to watch I'm very happy there are people like him and Rijkaard who are trying to play in a way people can enjoy because that's what football's for."

    Now, do you think if Mr. Cruyff is still alive, he would enjoy watching the way this Barcelona plays?
    imagine what Cryuff would say now about those performances vs Roma and Liverpool.

    Neymar, Umtiti, Arthur, De Jong, Lenglet, Digne, ter Stegen. All young players that turned out gold. Umtiti was on his way to become a top 3 CB in the world before injuries. Can't do much about that or Neymar's greed when he thought he became too big to be Messi's sidekick.

    There were also some bad decisions like Arda (wish of the coach) or Coutinho/Dembélé (panic buys) or simply getting it wrong (Gomes) but you can't fault the will to invest and invest in the right type of players.

    None of the "neglected" La Masia players turned out good enough. Tello, Cuenca, Deulofeu, Adama, Samper, Grimaldo. People hate on Roberto who is by far the best of the lot, imagine trying to incorporate someone as brainless as Deulofeu into the team.

    Why should Laporta do better? His last campaign promise was Pogba, a pink-haired, dabbing, lazy, overrated piece of Raiola client. This board got us Arthur instead. Just because Laporta struck gold with Pep doesn't make him a no brainer as president a decade later.

    Can't fault coaching choices either with this board. Lucho, former Barca legend, unproven, was as much of a risky decision as appointing Pep back in 2008 and it turned out great. Valverde remains the best La Liga coach to this date who was praised by Cruyff multiple times even during his Espanyol days, Cruyff himself would have appointed Valverde. Bottling CL away games and not playing as well as prime Barca doesn't change that fact.

    100 % of the criticism and wishes stem from living in the 2006 - 2015 Barca bubble. You'll have to get out of that sooner or later. Or just give up on Barca alltogether after Messi (like half the fanbase will do anyway).

    This guy is our No.1 problem and not Valverde. Any other president would suck Valverde after Anfield or probably even after that Roma debacle. This guy is the root of all evil. I just can't understand how is he not worried about his legacy at all. With debacles against Roma and Lpool, ruining La Masia and horrible spending records (Dembele, Coutinho...) he will be remembered as one of the worst Barca presidents ever. All of that happened when we had GOAT in our team. Unbelievable stuff!

    I'm shure Barto is already working on the solution, buying another expensive attacker who doesn't fit barça...

    Barto, bring us Sancho and Son for 200 mil euros combined and also get us Sané and seven other non-CF-positioned offensive wings.

    Oh, and give Ernesto a break, guys. He just needs more time. It is as the great scholar Gerry Bernabeau Pique said not many moons ago 'We sucked balls during Enrique's first season but ended up bringing the triplete, ya bish!' <== This guy's the best, amirite

    Mr. Bartomeu is a great human being. I would sack myself long ago if I was in his place but he is sooooo tolerant and humane...
    There is no humiliating defeat that can have me fired!

    I was thinking that this guy is the main problem. He has no clue what he is doing.

    What are we going to do next season when we have Messi and Suarez still here starting with Griezmann, Coutinho, Dembele and Fati.

    This is a mess.

    this will never happen, bart will try to sign neymar for more than 200m instead and valverde needs to be fired, he is a rubbish manager, we will not win any trophies with him as our manager.
