    We played that way a lot of games in Pep's era.

    While I said he does need to improve some things I do however think the whole forward passing thing is a bit overblown at least right now anyway.

    There's really not a reason for him to just randomly spam forward and through balls for the sake of just doing it. If he kept doing that which led to a shitload of turnovers you bet your ass off guys like Pep and even Valverde would get mad at him for doing it. I'm not totally saying he should keep passing it sideways but he shouldn't be forced to keep passing the ball forward without options to recieve it.

    Having good player movement helps out a lot as well. Having that confidence in your teammates to always be on the move gives Arthur a lot of options as well. Xavi was so good at picking out players due to that as well.

    Good. He'll start vs PSV then on tuesday. Or at least that's what common sense indicates it should happen.

    No way he rotates in the first CL game. Im expecting the starting 11 in both games with some subs in the 75th min

    It's by far the easiest game in the group.

    Arthur tweeted a picture of him training with the caption: “Ready!” but quickly deleted it after finding out wasn’t included in the matchday squad. [sport]

    Ouch!

    Poor guy. Valverde keeps confirming that he doesn't have balls to coach Barca. It's sad when you get used to having your coach killing excitement with selections while producing shit football at the same time.

    Valverde doing his best to make sure his record of developing ZERO young players is intact.

    I know it is the easiest game , and yet Im still expecting the starting 11 from Valverde. After that Roma game he wont take any chances in the CL.

    You know, i can understand conservative coaches to some extent, but V doesn't use his conservatism to good use. He just seems mildly daft. He doesn't understand what is up at all. Goddamn.

    He will probably play the same 11 until someone gets injured. Valverde’s problem is not just the lack of balls but also the lack of brain.

    Even if he plays all 90 against PSV it doesn't make senese to not even include him here, at least for last 20 min.

    Arrhur’s best characteristic was always beating the pressure, not finding apass against a packed bus. Thats why I always said his style is much more Iniesta than Cavi.

    Glad he getting the chance to recover from his travel. I would not be surprised to see him start against PSV.

    Fresh legs win games. This is what rotation looks like.
