    Arda and Gomes were Luis Enriques pick. Coutinho fan pick.
    Barca will continue to attract high profile players here and there, one can only hope scouts or whatever do a better job at finding good fits.

    First defender pick on the team sheet. I think Koeman trusts him a lot.

    What's worrying is that he's at the brink of getting injured. Let's hope he can hold out for one more game and then get some well deserved rest v Cornella.

    impressive game from him. very good physical attributes, but still unpolished on other technical aspects.

    hopefully he grows into the role and cements his starting position. otherwise, not a bad option to have on the bench if we get a star CB in the summer.

    Oyarzabal isn't the fastest and looks like he's being slightly pulled by Lenglet.

    Good from Araujo nevertheless.

    But look at Lenglet, hadn't he pulled his shirt or used his arms would've been left in the dust.

    No we don't want a star CB enough with this star
    Bull shit, look at how our STAR signing turned out
    To be, I would stick with him regardless he has already
    Shown quality attributes. I wouldn't replace him
    With any one at all.

    Great to have a physically intimidating speed beast as a CB at last. Some of his cons can still be amended, but what he gives to the team in terms of overall confidence is already undeniable. I think our mids and fbs are less worried to have high line of attack now, because they know that people like Araujo, Mingueza and FDJ can do the sweeping at any time (as they are all fast and athletic), if they fail at possession. Great feeling for me as a fan too, obv.

    Varane is the French Araujo dawg.
    Ronald is the Uruguayan VVD.

    If he adds an O to his first name he'd be the best Ronaldo in the world.
