    MD wrote an article about how Valverde wants an "Experienced" LB instead of relying on anyone from Barca B.

    While I get his concerns since Miranda is young but at the same time, after he supposedly wanting a smaller squad to incorporate more Barca B players it really seems like he's trying to weasel his way out of possibly developing another player.

    Digne came out and said in an interview while Valverde and the club didn't want to sell him, he instead wanted to go because he didn't get the game time. So again Valverde wants us to spend more money, on a guy that won't even feature much like Digne while we have a promising young LB awaiting in the wings that could take up at least some of the those minutes Digne was getting.

    Not sure what was the point of Miranda being pulled from the Spain U-19 team if he wasn't going to get called up. Don't think he would have been as bad at LB as Verm was today.

    tbf I think this one is on Abidal, I mean Miranda is good talent and all but through 20 years of being a Barca fan I don't remember any 18 or U-20 defender that has been getting useful minutes inside the club. Our defenders most likely get promoted or even signed around the age of 21.
    Coach tells you to keep your back up LB, you sell him. Coach tells you get me new LB and you say no and want to force him to play an 18 years old as back up which is almost unprecedented in the club?
    This isn't remotely close to Grimaldo situation, he was 20 and had 3 years playing in second division,Miranda has played only 5 games at that level (and 6 minutes in another 2 games)
    I think we needed someone like Sylvinho, a veteran (probably from Liga) who won't cost much and will do the job for couple of years until one of Miranda or Cucu is ready

    Valverde is a coward. Seriously I fucking dislike him. When he was signed to be our coach he promised to trust la masia. Now he doesn't have the balls to give players like Miranda chances against teams like Leganes. Aleņa + Riqui are very good talents and fit our playing style more than Vidal. Imagine trusting Vermaelen over Miranda in the LB spot. "But but Valverde likes to give youth players chances". Can't even give chances to youth players against teams like Leganes. Even when we were secured in CL group stage he refused to play youth players.

    Not only that he is a pussy and doesn't have balls to rotate with the squad he has. And he's defending a 1-0 lead by parking the bus. Pussy. And his agenda against Dembele is disgusting. Not playing Dembele in the RW position where he thrives best and bench him for Suarez when the latter has a disasterclass every weak is a disgusting way to treat players. Anybody that rates this donkey can fuck off. We are Barca, not fucking Bilbao. We play dominating football, give youth players chances and defend with the ball. If you don't want to do this way.. Then you can fuck off.

    Btw: Miranda declined spain u19 call up because he wanted to prepare next Barca game. Valverde promised to play him but since Valverde is a coward and need to win games, He will play the best starting lineup once again. Coward!!

    Miranda pulled off of international duty because the first team potentially needed him by Valverde's own admission and he's set to get 0 minutes and that's including time spent on the bench.

    What a god damn cunt Valverde is, damn.
    On whether or not we'll get 50m for Paulinho

    I'm quite sure they will pay already this January, so I'm happy to do it.

    Will Miranda play against spurs? nope. Should've accepted spain call up. Playing under Valverde is impossible if you are a youth player. Valverde didn't rotate last year because he was a pussy and needed individual brilliance to save his ass. He needed the best players including Messi to win games. Without Messi he is just an another Tata Martino with a suit. Doesn't have the balls to play Miranda because he's a midtable coach.

    When will Aleņa, Oriol Busi, Samper and Riqui get their chances? Aleņa is bailing at Barca B along with Riqui. Yes I know it's segunda B, but it's not an easy league for youth players. The league is very though and physical, especially when you don't have many experienced players around you. A very young squad in segunda B is difficult. Aleņa deserve to get chances because he's class. He along with Riqui will contribute more than what Rakitic has done for this club. They just need some playing time and they will adapt when they get older and get experience. Samper is very talented, but I don't think he will replace Busquets. I think he's just a squad player, but he can contribute more than Vidal. He's shit in defending, but Samper loves to breaking lines. Very technical player. Vidal isn't a press resistant midfielder. He isn't creative enough. Chilean Rakitic (a true workhorse). I think Oriol Busquets is the real deal. Valverde benched Arthur against Bilbao because he wanted to play a midfield full of workhorses: Rakitic, Roberto and Vidal. Two workhorses and one right back. against spurs he will probably play 4-4-2 and Arthur will still not play. Barca will probably sign De Jong, but Valverde will still bench him, Arthur, Aleņa and Samper for Coutinho (a winger), Roberto (a RB), Vidal and Rakitic (two workhorses). Don't forget that upcoming talents like Riqui, Oriol and Miranda will also be afftected. Valverde will probably play Rafinha/Denis over Riqui, Vermaealen over Miranda and Vidal over Oriol. Pussy. I will not be surprised if he play Suarez in the RW position over Dembele. Valverde is disgusting. two options: promote Pimienta to the first team next season or sign Setien. The man is what we need.

    Valverde will always be a pussy and a midtable coach.
