    And for this to happen you need the right board.

    You sign young players, but then you have to develop them. If you can't do that, you won't do shit. You either buy world class 26-27 years old players (which can cost you up to 150m a piece lol), or you buy talented players for 50-70m and you develop them. DEVELOP them, as in not leaving them on the bench or not in the squad 6 matches out of 7.

    The right direction is this.

    If you screw it up from step no1 then it's like trying to win a 10.000m race with a broken leg. The most important single piece in a team is the manager. If you hit a home rune like we did with Pep, or Madrid did to Zidane, you're set. If not, and you get it wrong, you struggle, until you correct the mistake and fight the right man for the job. It is what it is.

    What's shitty is that Madrid can correct an error in 1 season, while Barca take 3 years.
    I don't think he meant 18-22 years old players when he spoke about young, more of those who are still in their physical prime so around 23-26

    And getting right player is more important than right manager especially in our case. You need to build a strong squad before asking the manager to deliver, you are correct about it being 1st step if we are rebuilding but we aren't atm.

    I think we should totally be rebuilding. We aren't because we don't have the right guy in charge.

    24-25 years old players who are top class are 120-150m. a piece, and that in the rare case you find a selling club. We already signed Coutinho who is of this profile after big struggles. We needed other types of signings too. We did that by bringing in 21-22 years old talented players for 30-40m, like Arthur and Malcom, two of the best talents in Brazil and France. But for those players you need a better manager because they aren't finished products and they need to grow and gain confidence.\

    Valverde is sort of like Mourinho (the good version). He'll get the best out of a mature squad with quality experienced players. As long as lack of motivation doesn't happen, like it does at Barcelona big time.

    And the squad is strong. Just not strong enough to carry Valverde in CL. Valverde could win the Champions League with a team that is cearly the best in the world, or with a lot of luck. He kind of had luck last year, but still wasn't enough.

    To take it one step further, i guarantee that you will win la liga this season, actually, its already decided.
