    Busi's stats heavily inflated by seeking the simple pass to Messi every time.
    Don't the others have the same opportunity to find the simple pass to Messi? Why did you only single out Busquets?

    Busquets has many, many shortcomings and clearly should be benched by Frenkie at this point, but even in this shitty state of his, his passing is still better than the CMs who are supposed to play more advanced and create chances. Busi's main role shouldn't be chance creation, the fact that he is second on that chart is sad as hell.

    I singled him out because of his reluctance to pass anyone else but Messi.

    When we talk about chance creation we think of an offensive midfielder passing between the lines to somebody making a deep run.

    The fact that even Messi has decreased his stats goes to show what type of attackers we've been playing with.

    Messi's hunger for titles infects everyone within the squad. The whole team is training at a very high level and the hunger is remarkable. Prepare to enjoy. [md]

    My goat...

    Messi didn't train today due to muscle problems in his adductor. The Argentine underwent an MRI test yesterday to find out the exact extent of the injury that makes him doubtful for the game against Real Mallorca. [cat radio]

    Shame. Hopefully not another nagging injury that keeps him out two months.

    There seems to be a lot of conflicting reports on this.

    Reports say that he'll be back on Friday as there's no team training on Thurs and today's absence was planned. We'll c if that's true

    Injuries like this will happen when you have players taking almost two months off and training at a much lower intensity at home and getting back to the regular training regimen.

    Hope for the best. But let's be honest, the prospect of this season does not look good for us, with or without Messi.

    God dammit man. I think he'll end up playing, but at like 60 % of his abilities.
