    I mean realistically where are the players who are making the case to start ahead of the amigos? Koeman asked for a midfielder and didn't get it, he also asked for a good striker and didn't get it, etc. I don't think Garcia is better than Pique and we are very short of proper options in midfield with young raw Gavi and Nico having to play much more minutes than they should.

    No squad replacements have been provided for the washed players. Laporta looked at them and thought they were good enough. If we had brought a top CB, a top midfielder like Gini, etc, those would be benched rn

    The issue will be when Busquets retires, he is the one unique player they have right now, who could potentially make the team great again.
    But I think Xavi could find ways to build something without him, and I have no doubt that he will see what needs to be done. If he has a preference for f.e Busquets and Pique, it won't be because they were/are friends, but because he sees their qualities. I have no doubt that he would demand a lot from them and make them play at their best level.

    Not sure if you're serious or joking there. Busquets should be playing in China or Qatar next season.

    Busquets has been done for at least four years now. Yes, he should be in Qatar or China. Man is simply a liability.
