This is the third season of Ernesto Valverde in front of Barça and the truth is that, for more signings that arrive, the team continues to lose its identity

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is leader in LaLiga Santander and in the phase of groups of the Champions League, but the resultadismo will not help to resolve a grave basic problem that, if it does not solve , will finish with all hope of success. Ernesto Valverde carries more than two campaigns at the head of the team and the true is that every time they lose more the shots of this Barça brilliant.

Of the hand of Pep Guardiola and with legends like Messi, Xavi or Iniesta in the staff, that were in the best moment of his careers, the Barça turned into the most brilliant team of the history: indisputable champion of LaLiga, winner of two Champions League and owner of a philosophy of game that enamoró the whole planet.

After a stage of marked transition by the course of Guardiola, the consternation as a result of the illness of Tito Vilanova and the grey step of the Tata Martino, arrived Luis Enrique. With the Asturian, the Barça turned into a much more vertical team, of less possession but of a lot of hit and that still conserved the Barcelona essence. And it won another triplete.

And then, it arrived Valverde. The technician extremeño had a rugged beginning by the course of Neymar, but initially knew to contribute his ideas to the Barça and turn it into a less dynamic team in attack but much more consistent in defence, with the implantation of a 4-4-2 that worked all the season (won League and Glass) but that saw desmoronado by the European disaster of Rome.

From this fateful night, all has gone to worse. The Txingurri went back to the 4-3-3 to try recover the joy but, in addition to not to achieve it, the team lost the solidity. The Barcelona fracasaron with another black night of Champions against the Liverpool, in the final of Glass of the King against Valencia and the season was half saved by a League that won because of the ineffectiveness of Real Madrid and Athletic.

Goodbye To the identity of the Barça

In summer arrived players like Frenkie of Jong or Antoine Griezmann (by which Valverde sighed from did two years), ideals for the 'style Barça' on the paper, but the team follows losing his identity. With the technician extremeño, the team does not know to what plays, and the worst is that the Txingurri neither gives with the solution neither seems to know how find it.

Now, the barcelonismo contemplates split after party to a Barça boring, slow in the circulation of the balloon, that does waters in defence and that does not have ideas in attack. A team that exerts a totally barren pressure and descordinada to recover the balloon, with some separate lines that leave sold to the saga in the contragolpes.

And how no, always it touches to resort to Leo Messi to save the pieces of furniture. Nevertheless, the situation is so grave that not even with the Argentinian star in a good state of form can carry out the only factor of authority that had the team this season: his supremacy in the Camp Nou. Here it is the party in front of the Slavia.

The zarpazos of Luis Suárez, the desparpajo of Ansu Fati and the stops of Ter Stegen seem to be the only fellow hand for the Argentinian. All isolated factors of a collective football that Ernesto Valverde has not achieved to fit and that is finish with the faith and the patience of the barcelonismo, although I Hammered ask that it do not lose .

Of course, the technician extremeño is not the manager to the one hundred by one hundred of this situation. Those that carried the voice singer does a decade have aged and others no longer are, but the things are not working and from up can not look to another side. Valverde Has not given with the key and touches to do a reflection to pose if, in spite of being a man of club and possibly a person entrañable, is the suitable tenant in the bench of the Camp Nou to take out this advance.
