    Thought he was the standout for Barca tonight, great movement, looks a good fit for the Barca system.

    You just know Messi’s last couple seasons are going to be mired with Barca’s off field pish from the top down.

    They really need a * shake.

    Always liked the idea of him staying at Barcelona his whole career, but if he wants to win the Champions League again and really enjoy his last few seasons at the very highest level, moving would be a good idea.

    If that’s the case it has to happen now then, another year down the line is too late IMO.

    He won’t go as long as Ronaldo will who is a physical machine.

    Alternatively Barca could just get their * in order pronto and bring in a proven winner as a Manager and give them dough to spend on technically gifted players who suit their style and not over spend on guys that never will.

    Agreed that he needs out asap.

    It would be great if Barca could do that, but they're in such a state that it would require a few transfer windows, at least, to sort their team. It's old, slow, disjointed and filled with players on big money that they'll struggle to shift - Dembele and Coutinho the two main culprits. Even Griezmann, unless they can somehow incorporate him into the team better than they have done.

    Barca getting their * together is the better option for everyone for the now and the future.

    Messi is being used too much as the outlet and everything gets played through him, not sure how much that is Messi demanding things get played through him as well though (I mean if youre on the pitch with Messi and he shouts for the Ball, what you going to do?).
    The continued reliance on the lad is hindering even players like griezmann from being able to be played in a system that gets the game played slightly different to allow him to flourish.

    They need to be able to switch it all up.

    Personally, for me, after this restart now it looks to me like quique isn't the man to take Barcelona forward, they should look to move him on and bring in a proven winner.

    There is the argument of not a lot moving in the next few months with the time scales and the covid stuff, but it's barcelona, if anyone is moving for any reason be it players or staff, it's barcelona.

    That Kubo for Mallorca is quality. Saw a thing on here mentioning a link with us. I'd say that's pretty unlikely.

    What a thing of absolute beauty that Griezmann goal was from start to finish.

    Grazing the underside of the bar to put the cherry on the cake.

    Canny see Madrid losing points from now on man, hope Barca can fight back but think it's done unfortunately. Strange season from Barca, Arthur leaving is mental.
