Sorry, nothing in cart.
There is a select club of teams in the world that are forced to win everything. Entities like Barcelona, are the ones that mistakes are hardly allowed and with a couple of bad results a crisis is already unleashed. The Catalans are in a reconversion process. In another club it would be called a transition season, but that does not exist in Can Barça. After taking only one of the last nine points, the word crisis is already beginning to sound in the culé world.To all this we must add the constant circus that is experienced in the entity at the extra-sports level. This Monday, there is a meeting that will be decisive for the vote of no confidence , with which there is the feeling that if he leaves, it will be difficult for Bartomeu to continue in office. His resignation may be up in the air.These are all the reasons that have led the Catalans to this first crisis of the season.The resultsThey do not finish arriving. The Catalans started the season well, but now they falter. They have only taken one of the last nine points, something that is not customary in this club. Despite everything, they have the same balance as last year at this point – two wins, one draw and two losses. The irregularity in the gameYou can see the intention to change the face of the team, to play in a different way, but Barça still does not refine their football. Koeman says, and he is probably right, that it is a matter of time, that as the team accumulates hours of play, it will improve its performance. Ideally, while this process is taking place, it should be added three at a time, but that does not happen.The classicClassics always have consequences. The one who wins it comes out reinforced and the one who loses it, touched. It remains to be seen how Barça digest this defeat, but the truth is that doubts are already appearing. Messi is not fineOne of the best methods to take Barcelona’s temperature is to see how Leo Messi is doing. When the Argentine does not perform, the team suffers a lot. It may be because of the situation he experienced in the summer, with his attempt to leave, but the truth is that Leo is not as usual.Waiting for GriezmannBarça’s right wing has no owner. Koeman tries pieces for the right-winger position, but no one finishes hitting the table. The origin of all this problem is in the low performance of Antoine Griezmann. If the French performed in that position, there would be no one to dispute the site. The games pass and, despite the abundance of resources for that position, there is no permanent starter.Seizure in the officesBarcelona has been an ungovernable club for months. The board of directors has lost credit and the divorce with the team is complete. It is no longer only for the negotiation of salary reductions, but the partner sees Bartomeu and his family as an interim board. There is a feeling that the vote of no confidence will come out yes or yes if it is held. So it is difficult to govern.The defense tremblesThe team fails to be consistent defensively. Despite the good signs in the first matches, problems that cost matches are beginning to appear. For example, the silly penalties committed by De Jong and Lenglet against Getafe and Real Madrid. Double pivot problemsUntil now, Koeman’s great tactical contribution to the team was the introduction of the double pivot, an atypical figure in the Barça style. It was giving good results and even revitalizing a Busquets in the doldrums. After a few games, doubts arise regarding the indisputability of the youth squad. Pjanic warms up.
