    but he has not been bought for this reason.

    Anyway, do you think that Barca have to sell him after only one year?
    We are at beginning of February and you all think to market season.

    Dembele who? The ghost?
    Once again, he can't dribble, he's slow and he's not creative. He can't be a great winger, striker or false nine. The only position he excels requires the team to build around him and that's not going to happen.

    I don't understand this "it's too soon" mentality. He doesn't fit, and that'll be the reality until Messi retires. So cut our losses and replace him with someone who does.

    No dribbling
    No assist
    No speed
    No creativity

    Nothing of Nothing!
    What a mediocre player this Griezmann!!!

    He used to be a pain for us when he was at A madrid. He is still a pain for us now at barca.

    Can't agree anymore.. ... ....
    You have sad it, I would like to repeat one more time. Griezmann will not be the right fit for this Barca team until Messi is around. And as I see it, Leo will be here at least 2 more years.So no need to wait. Griezmann has tried all 3 positions in our front line and has not excelled in even one. On March 01/2020 he will turn 29. The best case scenario for both sides would be to sell him this summer and with that money to sign Lautaro Martinez. 120 millions of euro thrown in vain from our board of idiots.

    Fairly old post , but imo thats the only way he can salvage his career here at Barca. (even though Im up for selling him if there is a great offer)

    It's not like Vidal is getting any younger and with the board and Abidal going full retard this year , it means there are other position that need strengthening. So if by some miracle he flourishes in that B2B role that's one less position to worry about.

    How about we just buy an actual b2b midfielder and stop trying to wedge griezmann into weird roles because we're afraid to admit we royally fucked up? He's a fucking forward lol, not a midfielder.

    Well, because we gave up on sensible decisions long ago.

    How about you read what Im trying to say ?

    Yes selling Griezmann would be ideal (voted yes in that " would you sell griezmann" poll aswell) , but just look how this board managed to sell Coutinho so easily. Griezmann is on huge wages and becoming 29 next month and I honestly can't this see clown board sell him for a good price ,especially if he keeps playing like this.

    This team needs strengthening on several positions ( CB , LB , CAM , CF , LW) because Abidal and this board actually went full retard this year. No way can this happen in 1 transfer window (not even 2).

    So if we can solve one problem by not buying anyone , that would be one position less to worry about.

    He has the workrate for it, a decent pass and he can nick a goal from time to time. Im not saying he will guaranteed work in that role, but it doesn't hurt to try with how he is currently playing.

    Hes not the type of player to carry the ball forward. That alone disqualifies him for a back to back role. Even if you try him as an AM you end up with a bastardized version of one - he doesnt move like a midfielder at all.

    I mean he doesn't move like an attacker either at Barca.

    You also got b2b who just cause chaos with their off ball movement in the pen box. (Beek, Paulinho etc come to mind). But it's still a fair point you made.

    Ultimately I'm m still up for trying it, not much to lose with him going full Houdini upfront.

    I think his offensive movement is fine, he just lacks physicality, speed and dribbling ability ;D He would be perfect for prime Barcelona under Pep^^


    Edit: My last hope for him would be something like Lautaro-Messi-Griezmann - that or a longterm Messi injury
