    Poor performance or not, he still manages the to be crucial at important moments. The marking of a great player.

    The fanboyism. Are you really saying that the only thing he should excel at is set pieces and exclude everything else? Fuck sakes, we might as well sell him and get Willian then. He's much cheaper.

    I don't know about you but I want my wingers not to be major pussies when it comes to taking on defenders, I want them to have some semblance of tactical nuance and create space through off the ball movement, I want them to playmake not constantly make safe passes outside the area, and I want them to get into scoring positions. Dembele really needs to improve his off the ball workrate, it worries me that he hasn't improved on that expect in more than a year.

    Cool, how about we change the coach first and foremost if you want all that.
    This genuinely seems like a tactical issue since none of our player do it other then messi (and dembele when on form).

    Havig Dembele on the same side with Alba just doesn't make much sense. Alba is too attacking minded which is not a bad thing but he occupies the same space Dembele craves.
    When Neymar was thriving with us Alba had to take a step back.
    Alba was the one that benefited the most from Neymars departure.

    Valverde needs to figure this asap.

    "less of that build up shit" = take a corner + have the majority of your team including your centre backs come forward + only to predictably lay it off to messi so he can do that predictable lofted through ball to alba (or coutinho), who then drills a low driven cross to messi (or whoever) that gets interecepted

    i'm not talking about open play here, unless you're riled up about me suggesting that 99% of barca's corner kicks shouldn't end up in lay-offs?

    Even Neymar would be struggling here
    He needs Malcom

    Any player with technical ability on the team are still capable of playmaking: Messi, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Jordi Alba, and fuck even Dembele himself. It's not like there were a bunch of speedsters when he playmaked against Levante, Leganes, and Espanyol. Speed matters when they're on the counter sure, but not one everyone's on the opposition's half. Seriously there are runs made all the time by Messi, Suarez, etc and he misses them and goes for a backpass instead. This is some Pogba level "he needs this this this and this " to be a good midfielder type of excuses.

    Fine, I'm fine with the poor playmaking. But at least get into good positions, make that speed useful. Literally there's space all over the place and he decides to drop deep and sit right next to Alba, no shit Alba doesn't pass to him and their link up is shit. What does he do when there are runs being made right beside the box? He sits right outside the box ball watching. This is why I'm calling all of his goals in the beginning of the season flukes, his instincts to anticipate space and balls are just terrible. I'd still be okay with him if this was last season but come on, it's the end of his second season and he's still playing like he just got here yesterday. It's genuinely horrible.

    I'm getting frustrated because he's our only winger option. Coutinho's a shit winger and Malcolm only plays 5 games a year. He's our genuine "next generation 120m euros winger" and his fundamentals are so bad. I just can't stand it.


    Don't worry guys I'm done ranting. I'll just enjoy Messi, Suarez, and the new midfield talents now. No point in getting frustrated over something I have no control over.

    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Should play one half during the weekend fixture to loosen up a bit. He looks stiff and plays it safe now.

    Malcom is probably better in close spaces against a parked bus
