    i would imagine ibiza is pretty deserted at this time of the year. so it should be difficult for him to find std-riddled hookers.

    Messi, Pique and Busquets are staying in Barcelona. I'm a bit surprised that Chumi was called up ahead of Araujo.



    We'll probably see something like this:

    Neto
    Semedo-Chumi/Umtiti-Lenglet-Firpo
    Raki/Vidal-FDJ-Puig
    Perez-Griezmann-Fati

    with Arthur (I don't think he's ready to start yet since he was only given a few minutes against Granada) and maybe Abel Ruiz coming on in 2nd half.

    Chumi is called up because Araujo was suspended after his 5th yellow against Badalona - nevertheless strange since Chumi hasn't really even been able to get a start with Pimienta in the B team

    The handling of Todibo, just boggles the mind really

    No I'm making the point that he could easily have taken them there to play today and that would have been pushing them physically to also be ready for saturday. This pushing them too much physically is what a lot of people here are saying. Here is proof that he is not totally blind to the fact some players are above 30 and can't be pushed so hard.

    or maybe he is resting them so that they don't risk getting unnecessary injuries right before a big game vs Valencia away.

    Yeah exactly, because asking them to play would be pushing them too hard making them vulnerable to injuries. I don't get where you're lost on what I'm saying. Some people here have said Setien is too intense and will push the seniors too hard even though he either wasn't in the job yet or had only been here for a week. Leaving out Pique, Messi and Busquets shows that people were wrong to automatically jump to that conclusion.

    I agree that pushing them too hard could make them more vulnerable to injuries, but I believe Setien is resting them to prevent potential unnecessary injuries more from tackles from the opposition players rather than being pushed too hard. A mix of A and B players should beat them so the likes of Messi and Pique aren't necessary for this game. If there was a La Liga game today, then I'm 95% sure Setien would have played Messi and Pique.
