Many would argue that Segunda A actually doesn't help developing players as Segunda B.since the level is just too difficult for a team of youngsters to focus on their development without initiating a losing environment
Yeah, it really worries me to read such statements. Everything this team accomplished is owed largely to our youth sections and balls of Van Gaal, Rijkaard and Pep who promoted players from 3rd division.
I just wish Catalan journalists were a bit smarter and ask these questions. To be quite frank most if the time they sound like stupid people too.
Bad questions can only get bad anwsers. They seek for controversie to get more money. Good questions don't do the trick anymore - asking decent questions once/twice a year now has become such an anonaly it also creates more fuzz. Meaning they'll spout shit most of the time and ask a few decent questions when money stips rolling.
Here's Xavi Torres' questions and Roberto's answers (starting at 24m16s in case you're on mobile).
I don't really get what people are upset about. Should he have just gone "Yeah, fuck Lucho"?
In my opinion those deserving chances have gotten them anyway.
Times have surely changed from the days of Leo moving to the first team.... La Masia has enjoyed a tremendous raise in reputation which I am sure might have raised the ego of the youngsters as well.
I mean how many great prodigies have we lost out on because they wanted to walk into the first team but have not yet been promoted? Ironically this has been happening even when Barca B has actually been doing jack shit for a while now!

Starting to like the guy tbh,we are working more on smaller leagues and expanding our scouting and transfer network.Seem to be a guy with a plan
Remain to be seen how the execution of the plan would work.And how we are gonna sell the players who are on their way out.
Yeah, he's signing young players. So far, good moves.
Renew his contract plz.
These are exactly the type of transfers Barca should be making. Even if they don't work out, they are far more promising than players like Verm, Song and Arda.
Great work Robert.
Tbf, we could have gotten backup LB from La Liga for half the price.
I do like that we bought younger players as this squad needed some rejuvenation and I do applaud Robert moving fast and securing signings before pre-season.
Best thing is that we will be able to sell them for a decent sum if they flop. He started off badly, but only up since then.
