Just imagine.. could be cheering on Lloris, Davies, Lenglet, Emerson, Hojberg etc every week!

Other than Son no Spurs player gets in Barca line up.. Could argue Kane but then it is Lewa v Kane and could go either way.

You just intentionally dumb down the discussion, and I don't have the time for it these days.

It's relatively simple. Barca have a very talented squad, full of youngsters that some day may form the backbone of a very strong, dominating team, on an European level. Capable to fight toe to toe against the best. But those players are teenagers mostly, with little to no experience at the top.

You'd say the world cup where Spain only beat Costa Rica under a manager most rated highly in Lucho settled this, but apparently not. There is no agenda, Xavi is atm delivering slightly better than expected in terms of results, which is the only reason normal reasonable fans back him for the time being.

Nah dumb is thinking Spurs have better squad than Barca.

It is not 'full of youngsters'.

Barca have more players with experience at top level than likes of Arsenal.. fact.

Stop spouting usual shite.

'Spurs are better than Barca'.

Sensational.

The fact think Barca needs 'hundreds of millions to compete' with elite Real.. then change that to Real being 'shit' when suits says it all.

Eric Dier on RB.

Barca can only look at Dier/Hojberg etc and wish had their 'experience' rather than Pedri etc.

Lucky Conte.

Fact is there is not a Spurs player bar Son that gets in Barca line up on current level.

Kane v Lewa is a coin toss.

The rest.. Barca are better.

But Serghie will just burp out about Barca being a team of 'kids' again.

Bentacur is far better than Hojberg but that is assuming Busquets would be in most folks strongest Barca 11 anyway.

Kuvuleski is only other Spurs player with much to him. Good player and would be at moment better than Gavi probably if both at AM.

Bentacur plays same position as Gavi, Gavi is better
Hojberg plays Busi's position

Klusevksi plays Dembele's position, Dembele is better

Right now only Son and Hojberg directly replace someone from Barca's strongest XI

Nah Bentacur is better deeper than Gavi does a lot of the time.

Occasionaly been pushed forward by Conte and done quite well.

Kuvuleski doesnt play Dembele position. He is an AM somtimes from the right but not at all a touchline winger.

Bentacur would get in a ahead of Hojberg who himself has been getting forward more this season.

Hojberg absolutely would not get in Barca strongest eleven. Not even close.

Obviously they play 3-4-3, so formations do not exactly match

But in any case, there is room only for someone replacing Busi and someone replacing Fati/Ferran
Hojberg or Bentacur if you want for the one, Son prob for the other

In any case max 2 Spurs players get straight away into our strongest XI

Bentacur is the better player than Hojberg and would more fit what Barca would want from a mid.

Bentacur, FDJ and Pedri possibly the best midfield three of both if argument is to replace Busi.

Otherwise it would be FDJ, Pedri and Kuvuleski/Gavi if want one of them to be attacking mid on right as Gavi so often is tried.
