FC Barcelona The opinion of Jaime Rincn
PAreca yes, but no. The Bara is almost the same that was shipwrecked last season and that is on the way to turning this into a suffering and not a transition. The revolution was left in a simulation due to economic limitations and from last year’s eleven to this there have hardly been any changes. Just take a look at the defense to realize it.
The line of four is exactly the same. Sergio Dest at the moment has not imposed on Sergi Roberto on the right-hand side and Jordi Alba has not been sought a real competition, Junior’s absence through. Unable to pay for the signing of Eric Garca and with Umtiti permanently absent. Bara has been left with three centrals – one coming from the subsidiary – which could be two if a long-term injury to Piqu is confirmed.
In the new double pivot Pjanic appeared because Busquets was injured, but the youth squad has not been improved by the Bosnian or a Frenkie De Jong who is still far from being the player who dazzled at Ajax.
And in attack, Messi continues on a tortuous journey through the desert in which Griezmann also drowns. So, under normal conditions Bara will continue to play chestnuts with nine of the eleven starters from last season.
The eleven type of Setin have only come out Arturo vidal Y Luis Surez –Rakitic was already playing a secondary role – to make way for the Ansu fati, Pedri, Dembl, Trincao, etc. Interestingly, the only two posts where dropper illusion appears. Two places out of eleven. That is the revolution.
It is true that, at times, the game of Bara has seemed different. So is that Koeman he’s not having luck with injuries. The low of Ansu fati and of Gerard, if confirmed, they do a lot of damage. Too. But it is no less true that in the three league games of a certain substance, the feelings were always of being less of a team than the rival: Sevilla, Real Madrid and Atltico were better. Simple as that.
With a young team, lacking in hierarchy, caught with pins in certain positions and with a Messi in decline, it does not seem that Bara is prepared for anything serious this season. There are barely a few months of competition and there is a long season ahead, but worst of all is that it gives the feeling that the Barça reaction is in the hands of the same people who hit rock bottom four days ago in Lisbon. And that is the worst news of all for this Bara.
