    We lose ton of players on yearly basis, rarely any of them became anything special.
    We also sign many top prospects, and again rarely any of them become anything special.
    Last truly big name player we lost was Icardi, and he would never have developed same way if he stayed. After that it was the Keita Balde, Grimaldo & Bellerin. Non of whom are truly barca level.

    Exactly. Why we can't produce anything anymore? Thank God for Fati. There's small hope.

    We will have to wait and see if any of these players turn out be any good before raising alarm bells about La Masia. Though, all the money that the Premier League clubs have more their exorbitant TV contracts does mean they have more spending power to entice the youngsters.
    I don't think La Masia produce enough talent these years, and that's the problem -not that players leave to other clubs.
    Grimaldo is world class according to some barcafans with an agenda, but the problem is defunding of La Masia and not strategically betting on youth through the years.

    I don't like bringing/sharing stupid stuff from social media, but this one is too much for me.
    Now, it seems those who have doubts about La Masia players are too young to realize they are the reasons for our success.

    Every season there will at least be some half-decent group of prospects that come through we hype up only to be let down when they aren't as great as we thought.

    These days people are arguing about Cucurella and Miranda and how they would be better than Firpo even though I highly doubt that. One can barely get a game for a poor Schalke side who hasn't won in 13 games and the other was moved up as an LM and only played LB in emergency situations and in systems that the Backline was protected.

    I was one of those guys who rated Cucu and Miranda highly but seems like they won't make it for a team like ours (Miranda) or only be useful as a Sub further up (Cucu).

    Tenas and Sanz have also renewed until 2023 and will be part of Barca B next season. The next one to get a new contract should be Konrad.
