    This guy is bright. You could see it when he was a youth. These are honest, sophisticated, and confident answers...which has become his trademark. It’s not the Mike Bradley coach-speak which is also bright but not as sophisticated or confident...it’s more like Jermaine Jones. Dest is his own guy though. I’d say he’s the most confident and simultaneously capable player we have fielded. He’s going to be great because he sees what that looks like and knows how to get there.

    Barca lose again. Hopefully the next manager likes him.

    He fits into most rebuild schemes I would think. And for what Pep would pay for Messi, Barca could be rolling in cash for that rebuild they desperately need.

    Won't Messi be out of contract?

    Yep. They should have gotten whatever the could have from City this past summer. Maybe City offers some cash in the winter in order to make a run at the CL. It may be their best chance of qualifying for next year's CL.

    Yeah... manager seems to be on his way out. Barca is a train wreck right now. They don't have a single legit threat at striker and they are pretty small at most positions as well... so you can throw perfect crosses into the box and there are just no bodies to attack them in the air. And now they are going to be w/o one of their best CBs.... one less target on set pieces.

    I've watched barca a bit lately. Messi tries to do the same things he has always done and it's not working. He can still be a very high level player but he has to adapt his game. He still dribbles well and passes very well but he definitely can't dominate anymore. He must become more of a team player..

    Sergino looked fine. He went forward quite a bit and tracked vack well. It was odd for me as a YA follower, but i found myself yelling at Messi for passing to Sergino rather than taking a fairly promising shot himself.

    Ouch. They lost their starting CB and RB in the same game and they are 10 points back in La Liga already. 11th place in the live standings. I never would have believed it. On the bright side.... Dest will be the de facto starting RB. Even though I think he has played well the lineups Koman has run out recently clearly show that he still rates Roberto over him. Now he has the chance to cement his place in the starting 11.... but I am worried that this is a sinking ship. Unreal that Barca can't find a way to score goals.

    Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you begin to get better. They will bounce back. Just not this year. Also, have you noticed Dest doesn't play his free-wheeling self for Barca as he does for us?

    La Liga games are really tactical, played very carefully

    are BCN finally Destperate enough for the start?

    If the dutchman can't turn things around, Dest will be one of the stories associated with the failure. Too bad. He's a good player.

    A minor footnote in comparison to the utter dysfunction of the front office/ownership and Messi wanting out.

    He was a bit off. Then again, he played 90 minutes in Spain, flew to Buenos Aires, played 90 minutes, flew to Lima, played 90 minutes, flew back to Spain, played another 90 minutes. All in around 2 weeks. Dude might be a bit tired.

    He did something similar last month as well.
