    The safer option is sometimes the better option.

    With Lucho and Tata we went with the risk route. With Valverde we know we are getting a very experienced, tactically inclined manager and players he managed hold him to a very high regard and respect.

    The risk with Valverde is that he hasn't managed a top team before, but he's at least earned that opportunity after all he has done so far in his career.

    I'm not sure how effectively Valverde can achieve a high press with the current team. It's old and needs a major shakeup. I believe 14/15 pressing was a one-time kick in the ass kind of incident, and was helped by Suarez and Rakitic (new players) anyway. Need more youth and hunger in the team.

    FYI, would never go for Sampaoli. Currently the only thing you can reliably get from his teams is to choke of exhaustion in the second half of the season.
    Looking back at this, I think I agree with what I said at the beginning. The personnel is just not there for a high press. Barca got the opposite this season.
