    Youngest teams in Europe's top 5 leagues this season by @CIES_Football.

    Interesting fact: Barcelona is the team with the highest % of minutes given to U-21 players.





    Interesting (but not really surprising) that we're both a team with highest % of minutes given to U21 players and over 30 players at the same time.
    It is interesting. What do we derive from it though.
    Lewa is as athletic as the next kid (if your name is not Gavi). Age is just a number as long as you are pro (or not Busqets )

    That is great news indeed. I noticed we play most games with 80k plus these days.

    I'm under the impression last year our squad was more youth oriented than the current one. Koeman's experiments before being fired, you know. Never bothered with that stat. Quality matters, not quantity.

    Stay positive, Horatio. This is not the thread JamDav invests his time.

    I said "under the impression", because I didn't base that comment on stats. I remember Gavi, Nico, Abde, Mingueza, Puig and Ilias were featured in a lot of games in the post-Messi period until the January 2022 reinforcements.

    Before going into my theories, I'd ask you the same question. Would like to read your opinion first.

    Money. Or rather: Xavi being allowed to make the transfers he wanted. That is the difference. Not much else to it.

    My theory is something similar. Money. To be more specific - the lack of it after shock departure of Messi. Since Laporta won the election, there was this atmosphere of Koeman being unwanted by the board and tensions grew more and more in the summer with the club affording only free transfer players like Depay and loaned De Jong from Sevilla, also at some point Wijnaldum was in the conversation.

    Was Koeman sabotaged by the board so the club can get rid of him? I don't think so. A manager contract is insignificant compared to the money earned from knockout stages of CL, TV rights and sponsorship.

    IMO the board didn't have the mechanisms to keep the ship afloat back in the fall of 2021.

    Sure, so you know the answer as to why we had more youth before than now. You made it sound as if it was some long-term course Koeman or the clubd decided to take and how we now refrained from that course.

    Nah, never meant that. Probably I got lost in translation, the circumstances surrounding the club forced us on using so many youngsters in the first half of the season.

    Yep, even more so considering we were playing against Rayo, Valladolid and Elche so far. Should continue with good performances and results to keep fans around. Especially since we will lose money next season playing home games at Montjuic.

    The young blood was moving the ball totally. I'm backing up those kids until the end. Hope they don't learn the bad habits of the old guard who think more about pussy than football.

    they don't have the talent of the old guard. that's why we'll probably never reach those heights again.
