What is gonna happen next year when Koeman is (most likely) gone and the next coach has no intentions of using him on his plans ?. Another guy stuck here with a 4year big ass contract.

Hope to see at least 3 of the following 4 in every Barcelona game occupying winger and striker positions: Ansu, Depay, Dembele, Trincao
Anything less (like 2 to accommodate both Messi and Griezman) will be a failing project

Another player who will be loaned or sold 12 months from now.

Who needs defenders when you can sign overrated attackers?

One injury prone, one is still too young to be full time starter in crowded schedule (for his own long term durability) , one unproven quality (I hope he proves he is great) and Depay who is inferior player to both Messi and Griezmann and failed here before. He is also only 3 years younger than Griezmann, and while 3 years is significant it isn't worth that much difference in "rebuilding"
You are setting yourself for disappointment with this expectations.

Let's hope that Dembele can stop getting injured once the physical preparation becomes normal under Koeman.

Depay we will see. But he is at least a proper winger and striker than both Griezman and Messi (who are CAMs or SSs)

He's not...why do people keep saying this. He hasn't regularly played as an LW since his Man United days..it's like saying Griezmann is a proper winger because he played there back in Sociedad.

And he isn't a proper CF either, he is at his best behind another striker. Though he might be faster than the two of Messi & Griezmann

True he has not played LW lately, but still
Depay at LW >(more proper)> Griez at LW

Plus,
Depay at CF >(more proper)> Griez or MEssi at CF

By the way the last one was in Koeman's 4-2-3-1, so exactly what he has to play here

We have Dembele, Trincao, Messi, Fati and Pedri/Coutinho who can play on the wing. We dont need Depay. Griezman also has been forced on the wing since he cant play anywhere else either. What we need is Griezman and Suarez gone and to bring in a striker FFS. Wtf is this board doing or thinking.

We are hopeless. Another pseudo winger/CF/SS that doesn't excel in any position. What the fuck is wrong with the people running this club, seriously? We have a pathetic defence, with over the hill veterans, slow CBs and mediocre fullbacks but we yet again spend money on a player that doesn't add much more than we already have. Just adding numbers to an already bloated squad.

I'd rather have Coutinho as LW and save the money.

If you want a LW, buy a pacey one who can make runs behind the defence.
If you want a CF, buy one who puts the opposition's CB's to work and actually scores.

Wouldn't mind him coming as a backup, but at the moment we don't have anything solid to back up.
Another bad fit and waste of money.
