    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Back to our level again, hoping we don't get smashed.
    We should try to avoid busi for a game or too and try something different.

    What I hope:

    ter Stegen
    Mingueza, Araujo, Eric, Balde
    Frenkie, Nico, Gavi/Riqui
    Demir, Memphis, Coutinho



    What I think we'll see:
    ter Stegen
    Mingueza, Araujo, Pique, Roberto
    Frenkie, Busi, Coutinho
    Demir, Luuk, Memphis


    Then again it's Granada, so Busquets will probably be fine.

    Agreed. Although, even if busi is fine against Granada, he shouldn't play. For the fans' sanity.

    Maybe we will be confident enough to attack.

    Would certify Koeman needs to go for this team to improve.

    Well if we don't win I think Koeman gets booted, so not sure who I'm rooting for

    Somebody should ask him why he didn't play Luuk de Jong as a 9 in his Dutch team when he was manager. Didn't he play Depay there?

    He played Babel, Wijnaldum, Bergwijn + Depay up top. Babel from Besiktas btw, not exactly a world beater. Why didn't he play Depay on LW and Luuk up top?

    He wasn't good enough for Nederlands, but suddenly he's good enough for Barca?

    You act like Koeman was desperate for LDJ and not the reality that Barca due to bad planning were left scrambling around trying to get anyone in they could.

    The board ultimately sanctioned it so on them as final say anyway.

    Who from them thought he was good enough or allowed to be situation of the two CFs signed were Aguero and LDJ..

    Nobody forces Koeman to play De Jong. He can play Coutinho - Depay - Demir easily.

    Hard to form a forward line with Memphis, Cou and LdJ. Memphis can move between center and left side. LdJ can only play in the middle and Coutinho on the right was a shitshow. Could use Coutinho in midfield too, but think Roberto will play as he delivered so far when playing there.

    So Coutinho - Memphis- Demir should form the forward line. Can use LdJ as a sub and think he'll score quite a few times as joker. More than Braithwaite.
