    That is far from the truth, People complained a lot about Puig. Same for Alena, Wague among others.

    There always have been people in the forum who were doubtful and skeptical about the overhype surrounding Riqui mostly due to his physique since years ago. As a Cule and Cruyffista, I support La Masia and our canteranos and want to see them succeed as future starters here but you have to be aware that La Masia players are a lot more prone to overhype because they are more exposed to the media and attentions.

    Not only that.
    In 90s, people could watch only SOME matches on a Tv and read about players in daily and weekly papers.
    So, if you were a fan of Barca leaving in Poland or Germany, you wouldn't know too much about La Masia kids in 1995.

    Then, 20-ish years ago, computer Football manager games started to be popular and people started to be aware of more youngsters.
    Then, with an era of internet, you were suddenly able to read about La Masia kids in El Mundo deportivo or on some sport internet sites who were talking about young players.

    But today, in 2020, every single kid or a fan has:
    1. internet
    2. smartphones
    3. youtube, instagram, twitter, forum account

    Basically, anyone, with or without football knowledge can create youtube videos, instagram posts and similar.
    And since internet is filled with billions of fans who always need HOPE and the next big thing=then you get Rikis, Alenas, Wagues and similar.

    When you can watch youtube videos, dribbles, goals, each of those kids look like a real deal and a true gem.
    While in reality, majority of them will play a 2nd division football one day or they will move to a midtable club from Israel or Cyprus.

    People need to be aware that papers are earning money from news and clicks.
    They need to write about youngsters because people are reading that shit.

    And about Youtube videos, people are earning money on youtube from views.
    Young fans are hungry for new hopes.
    How to earn money on them?
    Simple= create tons of videos with youngsters and "future superstars", lol.
    Creators are earning money, fans are living in a dreamland, and Riki will eventually play for a 2nd div team later in his career.

    I mean, look at clowns like Dembele and similar.
    This is the era of the biggest hype in a history of mankind.

    We can't even say anymore: take it with a grain of salt.
    The more accurate estimation about a current era and hype would be: take it with a grain of salt and multiply with 100.
    FU Barto, FU the whole board, FU Abidal, FU Neymar. The end of Barca

    I'm not saying they didn't. It's a different complaint. Puig never played with EV.

    Agree about Aleņa. EV freezing him out after this first bad match this season was wrong.
