I want to believe that.

Me too.

I think players like Darvich and Faye could benefit with Flick ahead of La Masia kids but we'll see.

Don't know if he'll be better or worse than Xavi but he'll clearly see certain players differently.

I think he was hired to have La Masia in mind and use as many players as he can. We ain't got much cash and Flick knows he can't point on a 100M player and get him. Our whole budget for this summer transfer window will probably be like 50M if we don't (or can't) sell anybody...

Ofc he will have to depend on La Masia. There were reports about Flick studying our youth players for months. Probably BS (but OTOH he really didn't have anything else to do) but if true he has probably formed an opinion about some or most of them. But watching players's videos and working with them is different. He'll have to see them in trainings to either confirm his perspective or change it (for better or worse). I'm talking about youth players here but obviously the same is valid for current first team players as well.

My point was that Hansi will see some players different. Xavi had a bias towards "true" La Masia kids and Flick probably won't so "foreigners" like Darvich and Faye could have better chances than they would had Xavi stayed.

I don't want to make differences between players based on how much time they are at the club (but ofc those who are here longer should be better adapted to our system) and even less about their nationalities etc. Once they are here they should all be treated the same. What's important is if they are good enough or not. Mika and Noah are as much Barca players who deserve to get a chance to prove themselves than likes of Bernal or Guille.

Next year's Fermin.

Didn't rate him too high a year ago but think he did a big step forward this season (as did many players under Rafa tbf).

Should get some playing time in a double pivot.

Considering his 'lack' of top talent it would be wise for him to find a role where he can offer something different to the squad, much like Fermin.

Squad players with passion for the shirt are always welcome. Looking forward to seeing him in preseason.
