    It's worth keeping him around one more year as a rotational player while the others adapt, less minutes shoukd bring out the best of Rakitic like during the treble winning seasonm

    These words can't successfully be put in a sentence together, not with Valverde.

    I have no hope for next season before it even begins, keep on sucking Rakitic's cock you moron. Good job turning this club into a meme club, a third humiliation in CL will probably come soon.

    Rotational player? Don't forget, his spot is "occupied"

    After 2 years of our senior + Valverde combo we all know how things will most likely turn out. Raki and Busi will start. Suarez will start. Anything else would be a surpise at this point.

    Hopefully we can snag at least this guy or one of Willian or Rodrigo to reinforce our attacking options from the bench before the start of next season. It's better to sign bench players the coach has full confidence in to ensure we're not throwing money down the drain like we did with Malcom.

    The poor bloke Valverde is already under immense external pressure, the least our board could do is finally back a few of the gaffer's transfer targets. Piss poor planning. How much worse than Dembele can Oyarzabal be? How much worse than Malcom can Willian be? How much worse than Prince can Rodrigo be? How much worse than Arthur can Parejo be? How much worse than Umtiti can Inigo Martinez be?

    What do we have to lose? It's not like our current bench options are setting the world alight. Fund the fecking man.

    Will it make Raki any faster and braver with his passes ?

    Tbf Oyarzabal is a balla.

    Do people think managing Barcelona is easy? Even Pep lost the dressing room in his last season, Tata had the players and press against him minute one, Xavi had to save Lucho's job, and we don't buy the players managers want.

    Do you think Lucho wanted Turan, Gomes, and Valverde players like Coutinho or Dembele?

    Pep likes city because he can do this I want 7 out and 7 in these are the specific players I want make it happen.

    Here he couldn't do that, and if a manager like Pep lost the dressing room and couldn't get Messi to press what will a change in manager do?

    We need to bring in better players, and keep the seniors happy. EV is good enough forms treble and to go undefeated.

    Did he ask for Mina, Umtiti, Alba, Coutinho, Dembele, Rakitic to shit their pants, turn like snails or be injured in key games

    People can't see we've had problems in away games far before Valverde and they still haven't been addressed.

    True, but what can Valverde do to adress those issues and what has he done in that regard?

    a) Motivate players. NOPE
    b) Start phasing out players. NOPE
    c) Give young and hungry players a chance in an important match. NOPE
    d) Realise that playing defensive with 8 outfield players playing defense away from home doesn't work. NOPE
    e) Reverting back to Lucho's failed MSN system with an older shit Suarez and an ultra defensive midfield. YES

    I have a constant fear
    Valverde's here next year




    Valverde after Copa defeat: "I'm fine.. but when you lose you are always worse than when you win."

    Replaced mascherano with Umtiti, Shipped out deadwood like Mina, Turan, Gomes, Dealofeu promptly.

    Benched Coutinho for Dembele when Coutinho wasn't playing well, benched Dembele for Rafinha when Dembele's form slipped. Got the best out of Messi. Trusted Arthur to play against Tottenham in a key UCL game.

    Valverde's problem is he doesn't give many chances he did try benching Rakitic and Busquets and Coutinho in midfield but we dropped points and they didn't play well so he dropped them promptly and it was never tried again.

    He obviously doesn't trust anyone else to cover for Messi on the right wing besides Rakitic

    People can see that. But Valverde also does fuck all to help it. But not even that, it got even worse these past 2 years. Who keeps playing all the seniors and apparantly is cool with not making changes to the squad? Valverde.

    The mental gymnastics to defend this man get better with every day. Rambling about stuff everybody can see doesn't make Valverde a better coach. Just because there are other problems that doesn't mean Valverde isn't a problem.

    And if this was not defending Valverde then better post it in Barto thread or players section because here it's just an excuse for Valverdes mistakes.
    With Valverde we've always had a 3 goal lead at least. Past years we've looked toothless at home too.

    Ultimately conceding 4 is unacceptable but those strong home legs are undeniable the best since Pep.

    Again EV didn't ask alba to shit his pants and ruin the game plan
