    Yeah. I think he looked well off the pace and lacking in confidence. With an excellent taken finish.

    If he can get some solid minutes in a LaLiga team with decent attacking it can do him good.

    Yeah, I must say I'm not a fan. Loan to Segunda or a bottom LL club is needed.

    Busi doing that almost every game and he's still a starter.

    He's just physically incapable to play at a high level. As Porque and te amo Barca said above maybe he could do well in a team that builds itself around his technical qualities, perhaps high Segunda or low LL, but for a world level you don't see this style of player.

    You don't need to be a track star or physical freak in top level football but you at least need to be able to hold your own in that regard and have some redeeming physical qualities.

    Right now he's weak, slow, very short, and has poor stamina. That's never going to work in any top team and nobody can make space for that as there are other players available with both quality and decent physicals. I don't know why we signed him for the first team as he won't be that useful.

    To be fair to him he has barely played so far this season because Xavi overruled Alemany who wanted to loan him out. Then Xavi neither uses him nor allows him to play much for Barca B.

    It's just pointless to keep him around like that. Even if he might never be Barca-material not loaning him out to play competitive games every week isn't giving him a fair chance.

    He is a talented player. He's spent most of the season on the bench so he's not even been able to have game time with Barca B, and when he actually plays, and in CL of all games, people are more critical of him than Busquets who has been shit for years 😂

    Good stuff.

    Denis could actually beat his man from time to time. Then he used to go on and try to beat another but lost the ball. He also could hit those sweet through balls occasionally (more often so when he left us and played regularly).

    Torre I feel is more of a kicker and a stiffer player compared to Denise. Better crossing, set pieces and the good finish we witnessed against Viktoria.

    Different types but potential could be more or less the same yes.

    Good mini-analysis.

    I was critical of him previously but I believe in meritocracy and he deserves to play more minutes considering how poor some of the other midfielders can be.

    Additionally, he looks like he knows how to strike a ball and hit a good set piece unlike all of our other players.

    Maybe physically he might be off the level for now but nothing that can't be improved and can come off the bench sometimes.

    Should get some playing time in the first team this season.

    Like how he strikes the ball.

    There is no reason why he shouldn't be starting over Gavi and given a string of games after the poor run of form Gavi has been in. Even Pedri has been underwhelming and he should take some minutes from him. Xavi's shit tactics or not, give the kid a few games with our starters instead of playing him only with our scrubs and expecting him to play well.

    Pedri, Torres and De Jong could be fun to watch.

    Has something about him and probably cleanest striker of a ball in whole squad.

    Not even just midfield he could be given some minutes at AML where Gavi and Pedri have played before.

    Trouble is Barca are rarely clear in games and when they are Xavi will look to give any of Busi/FDJ/Gavi/Kessie minutes if on bench long before turns to Torre.

    At this stage he could be given chance on left before Depay/Torres and Fati if game won as those three are not earning minutes at this point and minutes should be earned not given time and again regardless of how play.

    With Alba and Balde bombing down the left for width then the left should be an option.

    Won't happen but switch Frenkie to the left of the midfield trio and you got Torre in between a midfield and fullback runner. From there he can whip in crosses onto Lemonchowders noggin.
