    I've had exactly that thought too. next logical step for Dembele then would be drunk driving or public nudity or something

    XAVIER BOSCH: To punish Dembele is to punish oneself.
    it's not a school here, it's Barça.
    to leave in the grandin the most decisive player behind Messi is to shoot himself in the foot (Valverde). it's not with a disoriented Munir or Malcom that can make the difference.

    He's still young. His talent is great, once he will mature more, he'll be a wq player. It will only take so more time, but it's worthwhile a wait.

    That's not all Givenchy said.

    He said
    1. we should not have bought dembele.
    2. we should not have bought coutinho
    3. we should have bought Hazard

    Hazard is a player was invisible for an entire season before that and who 90% of this board completely discarded at the time.
    Coutinho is a player who the majority of this was asking for even the summer before he was brought.
    Dembele is a player that many were following and was considered a wonder kid. We overpaid for him, but most understood it given the circumstances (mainly caused by the board's mismanagement).

    that's nice

    If he could control the ball like that at least 5 mins out of 90 during a game it would be nice.

    which pretty much proves he's low iq.

    With the supercopa lost and -12 points of the league valverde would have been fired already , us having a new and much better coach with more hopes for winning a CL , but he's not.

    If you think about it , Dembele is the reason why valverde still has a job ffs .

    But it seems some good folks here are getting a bit too easily influenced by the hype, and general tendencies against this young fellow.

    Is he late for training? Perhaps, probably. Is it important? Yes, for the coaching staff yes, but not for the public. It's an internal matter whatsoever.
    Is it important for how one judges the player? Not at all... How he plays is important, regardless if good or bad. Judge him by his actual contributions but don't let yourself be influenced by the press.

    Is being punctual a merit that everyone needs to talk about when it comes to any player? Not our business and definitely not mine or yours.
    Dembele looks to be, seems to be an introvert type of guy, probably constantly mucked in the green-room because of the lack of his language skills, but mind it that the young Messi was somewhat similar, with the advantage of having Spanish as his mother tongue. He couldn't learn even a word in English...

    Let me tell you something.
    When I used to play for my national team, there was a midfielder (who later passed 80+ appearances in the NT) who was ALWAYS late for any training.
    But when he finally arrived, he was the most diligent guy in the team and we didn't really give a shit about his lack of punctuality. Neither did the coach or coaches, because all knew that this was just a week point of his personality, but as a contributor, he had always been better than anyone else.

    When I used to coach a team in Asia (the same one that Del Pierro is coaching now) the best player in the team was always late, specially that he used public transportation only.
    Undoubtedly he was the best in the team, so nobody really cared for his lack of punctuality. It was more important to have him there - even if 5 or 15 minutes late - because only his presence was what mattered.

    That's why - if you really care for using your intellect - I wouldn't start repeating the gossips, using the gossips and accusations in order to prove your own agenda, because being late is a matter of discipline and we are not entitled to to enter into these matters. That's something that should remain internal to the club and management... What happens in the mile, stays in the mile...
    Can we know your name?

    No, sorry. We had this discussion two years ago and actually it was you who suggested not to ever reveal it here in the forum.

    Great post...

    Star? No. But I was a known player in my time with 60+ appearances in my NT.
    But that was in the 80's so who cares by now...
    Two years ago I mentioned some stories about that in this forum, but naturally it was a sort of mistake from my side. It's better to remain covered by anonymity, here and wherever it is necessary.
    But still... if something touches my own personal experiences, why not share it or mention it...?

    Cruijff said Romario always came in late. But he didn't care because he would score anyways.
