    Everything about him is underplayed (is that the word?). It grows on you. I like it.

    'Understated' would be the most accurate one but near enough.

    'underestimated' also a possibility.

    Depends what he is trying to say about Valverde. Saying he is 'underestimated' or saying he is 'understated' mean completely different things.

    First is others opinion of him, second is his behaviour.

    From the press conference:

    Valverde: "Change the system with Coutinho? First of all, whatever the system is, the idea of the game remains the same. We will evaluate if the system needs to be changed with his arrival, Dembélé can play in multiple positions as well."

    It seems that Valverde wants to start CSMD in most of the games and is prepared to accomodate them.

    He'll get new tactical variants with both Dembele and Coutinho able to play in various positions.

    The TACTICAL MASTERCLASS GENIUS will find a way to integrate our new boys, no doubt about it.

    Don't think our defense will suffer either.

    My feeling with Valverde is getting better and better.
    I think we are heading in the right direction!

    He wanted to give everyone a chance in the first half of the season and now he is cleaning up.
    He wants a small squad and I am sure he will use B players like Arnaiz and Alena more often now. I am really excited.

    The board seems to get some decisions right. Now I hope we can complete those sales of Arda, Vidal, Deulofeu, Masche amd Rafinha (loan) and in the summer let's get Griezmann and one/two young CM (Arthur/Aouar/Goretzka) and a young CB (De Ligt).


    Visca el Barca!!
