    A bit perplexed at Sport frontpage featuring Jordi Cruyff quote: "This Barca is faithful to my father's idea".

    Don't know what would be worse, if he was a sell-out or just ignorant. Disappointing stuff.

    I didn't know Jordi was adopted by Mourinho.

    Either Sport invented those quotes or they were said in another context. If not it's just another proof (out of many) that being the son or daughter of famous person x or y is no guarantee of inheriting their talent or ideas. In fact often the opposite is the case.

    Shocking comments quite frankly. It seems that the downward spiral since Pep (in terms of playing style) left is being taken for granted and accepted. Apparently, especially seen by the local coverage in the past many years which unfortunately have a big say in the opinions that locals and non-locals form, such ideas of "everything is perfectly fine" (in terms of playing style, long-term vision, Barça being the football reference in the world etc.) are being transmitted and believed in due to such delusion.

    This comment must be the result of the above otherwise I will reserve the right to question Jordi Cruyff's football knowledge as a nobody in the world of football.

    Have standards dropped that low that even having more possession than the other team and giving La Masia players (Alena/Miranda) some minutes here and there means we are still faithful to Cruyff's vision?

    Can any Spanish speaker translate of what Jordi was asked on Valverde's Barca are carrying his father's idea.

    Use Google Translate, but it's not really that accurate...

    ¿El Barça sigue siendo fiel a la idea de su padre?

    En l*neas generales, s*. Una cosa es donde poner a tus jugadores, cinco metros a la derecha o a la izquierda, más arriba o más abajo. Pienso lo más importantes es el vocabulario, no estos cinco metros. Ter Stegen, por ejemplo, pocas veces mete un balonazo arriba, atacar, ir a ganar los paridos, hacer goles… hay palabras que siempre existen y seguirán.

    ¿A usted le gusta?

    S*, claro.

    Does Barça remain loyal to the idea (playing style, legacy etc.) of your father?

    Generally speaking, yes. One thing is how to lineup your players, 5 meters to the right or to the left, more forward or more backwards. I think that the most important thing is the vocabulary (in this context the overall line of how things are being done at the club), not those 5 meters (distance on the field between the players). For example Ter Stegen will rarely ever smash the ball forward, attack, rip himself to shreds (or launch himself forward) in one on one duels, score goals.. those are words that always existed and will continue to exist.

    Do you like this?

    Yes, of course.

    Quite cryptic but I think what he is trying to tell is that Barça continues to adhere to Cruyff's general principles and that the smaller tactical details and changes won't impact this legacy.

    His entire interview is rather absurd as commented on earlier. There is no clear sporting project so much should be evident. Currently the club is not run anywhere near how it was run when Cruyff had full power. A manager without much say contrary to the Cruyff model, non-existent use of youth players, 48% possession at home against Celta etc. What an absurd timing to say such nonsense.

    Easiest way to earn money. New club every six months. Get sacked and receive the payout. Rinse and repeat.

    Hustler.
