    Glad he outwaited Valverde, he most likely was about to follow Alena steps.

    What a crowdpleaser... But I want to see him get gametime before I salute Setién.

    A bit sad that Alena is gone now, he would get the chance under Setién I think.

    Would be great if he starts vs Granada. Please spare us of Rakitic-Busquets-Vidal ;D

    Don't think that's likely. He will certainly start vs Ibiza though.

    Things are changing fast after Valverde is gone.

    Puig will make it at the top level, I’m sure about that. This is probably the best thing about us getting Setien.

    MD and Cat Radio say he's basically a first-team player now.

    But I'm going to hold off a bit and see if it's true.

    I have been convinced about Setien for some time, everything coming together - later than it should've been but it is what it is with Barto. Now let's see how we can recover from the lack of Suarez
    Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."

    According to MD:

    The suffering is over.

    Onwards and forwards.

    As i said long ago. Every coach who knows what hes doing will at least TRY to integrate puig in the first team. He has the dynamic our midfield is lacking often.

    Would be a dream to see him start against Granada.

    I know it's unlikely but one can dream.

    Even if he doesn't start, if we build a good lead he will get minutes. Which is what is all about. Using matches which are won by min 60 to give chances to young players.

    Honestly, it would suck. Busquets-Vidal-Rakitic is just redundant as hell. Now is the time to make a statement.

    With De Jong out, and Arthur still questionable, I really don't think it's as unlikely as you think. I honestly don't think Setien after all the good vibes he's been receiving from the Barca community in his first week, would risk throwing it all away with fielding that famous Raki-Busquets-Vidal midfield, even if/when we'll play a totally different game and actually have a system, so after some time with trained Rakitic and Vidal it might not be the worst midfield ever, but right now in this position and in his first game, and after all the reports how he and his staff love Riqui, I can't imagine he wouldn't do it, if Raki, Busquets and Vidal would be his only other choices. And it helps that it's Granada at home, the kind of game we would expect Puig to start anyway, if he was with the first team permanently, which he seems to be now, at least for the next 6 months with Alena out on loan and having that extra spot (with Suarez out, even two extra spots) on the first team.

    But I think Arthur is actually OK to start already too, and that he will, I mean the guy trained for the whole week, basically was magically back to full strength the minute Setien came in.
