    busquets might be the biggest liability right now, but not the only thing missing. pedri is still inexperienced and de jong is lacking in his passing(not his strongest point since forever).

    agree that we improved and at least we have a stable starting midfield. just pointing out that midfield is not that good, as the focus for criticism is usually our defense and attack.

    De Jong passing is more than good enough and not a weakness but what he brings is why midfield has improved so much.

    The slow/safe passing going nowhere fast as like last few seasons was not achieving much from middle of park and for me far weaker than now.

    The defence has been down largely to individual mistakes.

    Those two goals last night have nothing to do with the midfield and just terrible errors from Umtiti in most part.

    Barca would be worse in my opinion if tried to start thinking of control above what the midfield is doing at moment. Messi/Griezmann etc are all benefiting from the way the midfield is set up.

    This season reminds me of 13/14 season when we won many matches by fighting spirit.

    Did you even watch the match live? I will eat crow for thinking Messi would not save us. As he definitely did. But you couldn?t have been feeling too great at 0-2 with 5 minutes left if you were actually watching.

    There was no way on Earth that anyone could say in 87th min that we could win... After all that crossbars and shit that happend.
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Busquets and the left CB are the biggest liabilities on a top level. You either need another quick defender or you replace Busquets with a DM who has more dynamism.

    Wow, I've just seen Granada last loss at home when they've scored first was in March 2013. Since then they've had 66 wins and 13 draws.
