Again, apologies if in the wrong place.......but the Arthur / Pjanic swap is made all the stranger due to the ages of the players, and the current state of the Barca squad....

 

Pique 33, Rakatic 32, Suarez 33, Messi 33, Griezmann 29, Alba 31, Vidal 33, Busquests 31 (32 next month)

8 top players that will need replacing in the relative short - mid term

I have no problem with a CF demanding the ball and wanting to score. 

it is when they start hiding out on the wing, and not getting into position is when you want to worry.

Apparently Arthur isn't the most professional or easiest player to work with ... Who knows if that's true or fair, but I've heard it in a few places.

Maybe so, but you would surely look to find a replacement who was younger than Pjanic?

Having said that, am I the only one who has noticed this big time about Tammy since the restart? I'm not sure if I just missed it before or things were simply going better for him early in the season, but every time we go forward and he doesn't get the ball he's screaming, throwing his arms around etc. I find it very unlikeable.

I wondered if he's feeling frustrated or the pressure with his goals drying up a bit and the spectre of Werner looming over him for next season...

Well compared to the start of the season he is getting the ball much much less, so I doubt it is a change in him.

He starts about half Barca's games, so I guess not that key a player either.

You've really hit the ground running since lockdown, Mark.

I think there is a need for a new thread to discuss all things European so am going to start one.

Christ.  I hadn't realised just how dire their squad planning/future proofing has been.
