Starting to become clear why Atletico tried to get rid of him. There are very few real bargains at the top level.

Not convinced he is better than depay.
slow, weak and inconsistent technique. I believe he has some great moments and wonder goals in his arsenal though.

He is struggling when Barca cant dominate ball in middle of park to take game up into final third.

Doesnt have the pace to hit on break from wide all that much and Fermin/Gavi/Romeu dont dominate the ball.

Will probably be better once Pedri/FDJ back and can Barca can control the midfield better and get ball to him in better areas.

Said weeks ago Barca shouldnt sign him and need to get more pace out wide.

Nico be ideal.. even if have to pay 50m if there is that clause.

Never in his life been a touchline winger.

Xavi is signing many a player then playing them in way doesnt fit.

Quite his calling card at this point.

He would have been better in box and behind Lewa and Gavi punted to fuck a lot earlier.

Never ever be that touchline winger.

Never understood this "better cheat than create" mentality. He was successfully beating defender and could become a hero, but his rat instinct tells him to make a ridiculously obvious dive that even most corrupt/incompetent ref wouldn't buy.

Tf are they cooking

🚨 It seemed that Xavi had found the right position for João Félix, but his effectiveness has plummeted in recent weeks. The Portuguese is perhaps suffering because Barça aren't playing that direct compared to Atlético Madrid, where he also had more space to make things happen. Yesterday he was not at all happy about his substitution. @sport 🇵🇹

So, Atlético, that was a bad fit for him because they played defensively is actually a better fit than Barca because he had more space. That is a stupid excuse.
The only role he could play Is behind the striker in a diamond.
He is not pacy to be a winger as is used currently.
Gavi I guess is supposed to do that in some way, but really isn't.
