    Hardly weak. It was a one man midfield. Pedri and bousquets are invisible men.

    He is no better than Pedri or Busquest in this game

    He is a player who will shine when the team effort works well like he did in ajax but here at barca he wont get support. COuld be the third season in a row in which he wont win a la liga title.

    This. In all big games Frenkie and Pedri aren't any better. So what's the issue then? Because all I see are excuses of the type 'at least others were worse'.

    Another overhyped player , nowhere near as good as some on here think he is.

    Only world class player we have left. Xavi/Iniesta would struggle to make a big impact in this team.

    Yes they would, as they did in 2007.
    Could I see Frenkie as a midfielder in a team that regularly dominates games against the best? Unfortunately I think no...

    It's not just the midfield that dominates games. The forward line plays a huge part as well. Yesterday Memphis and Luuk created no space for our midfielders. This season will be determined by Ansu and Dembele. If they are alive and kicking we have a good team.

    The 2007 example is terrible as well. We are well on course to have a season like that, with Frenkie looking easily like our best player.

    Yes of course the forwards matter. Replacing a forward with a CB in particular makes the early press much tougher. I hope you putting any hope on Dembele is some sort of sarcasm or something lol

    Eh why is the example terrible then?

    The example is terrible, because Frenkie has an impact in a mediocre team as well. Like Xavi and Iniesta had. But neither of them would transform yesterday's game into a win (well, Iniesta has the best shot, but I would still seriously doubt that).

    To Dembele: I have zero trust in him, that's why I don't expect anything this season. But at least he's a real forward with pace. His last season's performances would already help the team a lot, which were as mediocre as it gets.

    Nope, season will not be saved by those two. Dembele is a lost cause and Ansu coming back strong is a big ask.

    I would consider it a win if Fati at least fully recovers, doesn't get injured again and continues his progress. Giving him the 10 was just lame PR by the club.

    With a healthy ansu, genius dembele and a strong coutinho we will win in allianz arena against bayern........then Dembele switchs the ps4 off.
