    Our XI for 2019/20

    After the horror show in some English town, none of us care anymore about two league dead rubbers or even the CDR final. What should (realistically) be our best XI for next season? Will it be able to dance with Europe's best and not just Levante & Huesca?


    I would go for something like this:


    ---------------------------------Ter Stegen--------------------------------------

    --------------------De Ligt----------------------Pique---------------------------

    -----??????--------------------------------------------------Alba----------------

    ---------------------------------De Jong-----------------------------------------

    -----Arthur-----------------------------------------------Alena?-----------------

    ----------Messi-------------------------------------------Dembele--------------

    --------------------------------Griezmann---------------------------------------



    Who should be our right back? Semedo, Roberto, or some new player?

    Who should be our 3rd midfield player, Vidal, Busquets, Alena or someone new?

    Pique should no way in hell play on the left. Semedo is the RB as things stand now, would promote Wague as a backup and put Bob back to midfield. Arthur and De Jong starters, 3rd spot filled by Vidal, Alena or Bob, depening on what we plan to do. Busi strictly a backup CDM and used in slow paced games.

    Gotta stop with putting Messi RW and letting him drift centrally , which causes that huge fucking gap on the right side. He either commits being an RW , or he gets shifted to a false nine position and the board buys a LW.


    One more thing these two cunts need to be shipped asap : Rakitic and Suarez.

    Dembélé - - - - - - - ????? (#9) - - - - - - - Messi

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Aleñá

    - - - - - - - De Jong - - - - - - - ?????**

    Alba - - - - - Lenglet - - - - - Piqué - - - - - Semedo

    **Someone who can provide both technique and muscle with defensive awareness like Xabi Alonso did for Spain (Hence, Vidal is not ideal).

    We have to assume he won't be.

    I wish we could honestly but with some of the news coming out today, I’m pretty fucking skeptical.

    Another alternative; if Koeman came, he might try something like this. A bit more risky but could be effective. I’ve always thought for everything Retardo likes in the 4-4-2, we get a lot of the same things in this shape with more defensive solidity. If we ever wanted to play more counters, this would work better than the 4-4-2.

    One thing for sure: we need a right footed forward. Only naturally right footed attacker we have is Luis, even with Greizmann. We need another option, maybe Justin Kluivert?!

    Rakitic needs to go 100%, same with Suarez, but he could be OKAY as a substitute for next season.

    Dembele is good from Right and plays with both feet.

    I honestly think its for the better of the team that he needs to go with Rakitic. Dude is just too toxic and a fucking thug on the field. And even if he were to stay , you think someone like him would accept a bench role ?
