    Yeah, I too get a feeling we always get that Anoeta trip in worst possible time.

    It's Round 7, not 6.

    My line-up would be: ter Stegen - Semedo - Mascherano - Umtiti - Alba - Paulinho - Busquets - Iniesta - Deulofeu - Messi - D. Suárez

    Stick Alba LW and play Digne.

    Messi misses that pace in behind when he has the ball. Particularly from the left.

    Alba would be a better winger than other pacey options like Deu and Vidal.

    We should win this convincingly and start the international break on a high.

    Interesting option. I think that would work too.

    I doubt Alba would be a good option for the wing. A winger needs to have some qualities like 1v1 play and finishing. The only thing Alba is good at is running into space and passing. It`s not enough against good defences and he would probably be useless against parked buses.

    Would bet he would be a better winger than Vidal or Deulofeu and at Valencia performed at a higher level than those two have.

    As much as anything quite like the idea to stop these fucking high lines and option if runs in behind from left that Messi looks for a lot.

    I hope Leo get some rest once he finishes the game. A tough mission is waiting for him against Peru.

    Start Denis on the left wing.

    Just look at this crap squad, all those years of incompetence in the transfer market have finally caught up with us now. Most of our squad is either dead weight or players who are not or will never be at the level good enough to play here. Take Messi of this squad and we would finish 7th in the EPL.

    I look forward to watching Messi the next couple of years, then it's all downhill from there. We have to hang tight while we rebuild our squad, hopefully after Barto is voted out in 2021.

    Denis is a midfielder. It is a waste to play him as LW. I would rather play Denis over rakitic and Iniesta in the xavi role.

    Denis is midfield/wing hybrid similar to Coutinho. He played there successfully a number of times and is certainly a more fitting option than Alba in that advanced role. He was very good against Eibar.

    Unfortunately he is not suitable to the midfield general role like Xavi because he is too attacking by nature. He won’t offer you that control you want in a 6.

    Anyway, it’s perfectly clear that Alcácer, Turan and Vermaelen are not part of the plan going forward so hopefully they can get offloaded in the winter. Apparently Turan refuses to go... He has no ambition.

    Don't think Digne deserved this treatment. Alba runs a lot and we could rest him more in these weaker home matches.
