    Xavi doesn't trust Dest and Balde to give Alves and Alba some rest. [md]

    Fair enough

    At least he noticed it.. positive.

    Xavi should not be here in the first place. Ridiculous decision to hire someone whose managerial experience consisted of managing the biggest club in Qatar.
    We fans are going to experience alot of pain over the next 3-4 years. There is no easy way out here.

    Just imagine if Real Madrid will bring in this summer Haaland beside Mbappe. We will not count for many years to come so La Liga will become one horse run. Sinister perspective.

    And, with such clueless couch and very poor general management which is going on for several years already, not sure what we should expect fighting for. Maybe a second place in la Liga as a must....

    Hopefully he initiates a course correction.

    Apparently flipped out and confronted Dest in the training room saying he doesn't know what it means to play for Barca.

    Well he should've known before he even had his first game, it's an issue for years already yet he's added 38 year old Alves and plays the other veterans every single game. Suprise suprise we still lack intensity, what a shocker.

    So let's see if he finally does something about it. Now, but most importantly for next season. This one is a train wreck anyway, just somehow reach top 4 and then put all energy towards the rebuild.

    Xavis last 5 league game the team is losing steam as game goes on. If it took him until now to realise that it is worrying and even more so if doesnt realise that playing likes of Busquets, Pique, Alba and Alves contributes to it massively.

    No goals in second half v Sevilla
    No goals in second half v Mallorca
    'Lost' second half 2-1 to Elche
    Drew second half 1-1 with Osasuna
    Lost second half 1-0 to Betis

    That comes before losing last two games v Real and Bilbao late on.

    While Sevilla come back with two goals in second half to get a point and Atletico score three late yesterday to win the game. It doesnt feel like Barca and the old amigos have that in them.

    Did it v Villareal when in all reality that was a game they were getting battered late on and scored through a punt up park and Villareal error to win. The team were out on feet in that one also.

    So we need transfers. That's a revelation somehow? Every youngster who even slightly proved something, like Abde, Jutgla, is playing. He even played raw kids that belong at Barca B, like Demir and Ilias.

    Nah dont need transfers to drop likes of Busi more often.

    That is on Xavi.

    Play others.. change formation.. options he has.

    But I get it. The old rules are different for Xavi argument raises its head again.

    Could make a fair list of how different arguments put forward for exact same situations now.

    Ok, Busi is maybe the only position where he could mix it up more. Everything else is more or less picking players that are available.

    No, rules are the same. If Xavi starts moaning non-stop as Koeman did, he should get the fuck out too. Everyone who doesn't want to work hard and get this team back should go. It's not like either one is irreplaceable, Koeman was a midtable manager all of his life.
